Tech Industry: Lenovo IdeaPad U1

1:04 /

At CES 2010, Tom Merritt shows us the Lenovo IdeaPad U1, a Netbook and tablet hybrid.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hey, I'm Tom Merritt, here at CES 2010, taking a look at a pretty cool Lenovo product. This is the U1 IdeaPad. They call it a hybrid of a netbook and tablet, and it looks just like your standard netbook. It's got an Intel COLV processor inside, and it has a tablet up here at the top. So you slide this little link up at the top, pull it out, and all of a sudden, it goes from being Windows 7 to a Linux-based tablet. Now, this has a touchscreen. As I mentioned before, it's multitouch, so you can move around, look at videos, look at images, do all that sort of stuff. You can even browse the web. There's 3G and Wi-Fi in here. Then, pop it back into the case, and it goes back to Windows, and synchs along with all of your photos and what browser pages you were on and all of that right back here. They say it will be available late Q2 and cost less than $1,000.00. Once again, it's the U1 IdeaPad. At CES 2010, I'm Tom Merritt. ^M00:01:01 [ Music ]
