Podcast: Innovative netbook with removable touch-screen

At Demo 09 Always-Innovating showed a netbook PC with a removable touch-screen that, says, the company, can run for up to 15 hours on a single charge.

CNET and CBS News tech analyst Larry Magid speaks with Always Innovating's Maria Victoria about the company's Touch Book touch-screen netbook. One unique feature is the ability to remove the screen and take it with you to use as a touch-pad or leave it in place to use as a netbook. The company has adapted a version of Linux to provide an iPhone CoverFlow-like interface for launching programs.

The company claims it will get up to 15 hours of battery life.
