Lenovo IdeaPad U1

Forget tablets; Lenovo has introduced a new hybrid notebook: the Lenovo IdeaPad U1. The IdeaPad U1 is a 3.8-pound laptop that runs Windows 7 and has a 128GB solid-state drive--but wait: If you pull off the 11.6-inch screen, you get a Linux-running multitouch tablet PC with 16GB of flash memory. That's right--not only is it a laptop and a tablet, but it runs both Windows and Linux. The 1.6-pound tablet powers up within 3 seconds of being removed from the base, which can then act as a 3G wireless hub for the tablet. Many consumers will be trying to decide between a laptop or a tablet this year, but the hybrid Lenovo IdeaPad U1 might well settle the argument by providing both. The U1 is priced at just under $1000.
