Lenovo announced their new U1 IdeaPad Hybrid a little ahead of CES 2010. The U1 isn't like any notebook, netbook, or tablet PC you've ever owned. Instead of being a normal laptop with a touchscreen that can swivel around and act as a tablet, the U1 is a normal laptop with a screen that detaches into its own, separate tablet. We hope to see a video of the conversion in action hit at some point during the conference. In notebook mode, the U1 runs on Windows 7 and has an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 4 GB of RAM, and up to a 128 GB SSD. When separated, the monitor becomes an 11.6" tablet with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a Slylight Linux interface, 16 GB of flash memory, and 512 MB of RAM. The tablet alone can last eight hours, while the base unit lasts six. Pricing will vary based on components, but the starting price should be around $1000.
