The 3.8-pound IdeaPad U1 Hybrid is an 11.6-inch laptop with a retractable multitouch screen. When the screen is locked into its upright position in the laptop’s chassis, it’s powered by a CULV Intel Core 2 Duo processor and runs Windows 7 Home Premium. What makes this new model interesting is that when the screen is pulled from its shell it becomes a Qualcomm Snapdragon powered-multitouch tablet with a 16GB SSD that runs on a Lenovo’s customized Skylight Linux interface. The device is set to be debuted at CES and is slated for a $999 sale price. Can’t wait to see if the dual OS design is truly functional or just flashy, more to come once it is officially debuted.
