LAS VEGAS -- Depending on how you look at it, the Lenovo N308 is either a giant tablet or a small all-in-one desktop. Regardless, the 19.5-inch touch-screen computer is Lenovo's first AIO running on Android (Jelly Bean 4.2, to be exact).

The list of specs certainly reads like an Android tablet. Well, to a point, anyway. Processing power comes courtesy of an Nvidia Tegra quad-core chip matched with a 72-core graphics processor for pushing pixels around the 1,600x900-pixel-resolution touch screen with two-point multitouch support.

It can be configured with up to 2GB of memory, 8GB or 16GB of eMMC storage, and a 320GB or 500GB 5,400rpm hard drive (not something you usually find in tablet of any size).

Its connectivity selection is more typical of a desktop, too, with two USB 2.0 ports, a memory card reader, and Ethernet port. There's also a 720p HD Webcam and built-in mic, stereo speakers, and a headphone jack. Wireless connections include Bluetooth 4.0 and dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi.

The N308, which will start at $450 when it goes on sale in February, comes with a full-size keyboard and mouse. But, if you want to leave your desk, you can fold up its adjustable kickstand and carry the 10-pound tablet away, using it for up to 3 hours on its integrated battery.
