Hands-on with the light-as-air Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx tablet
-I'm Rich Brown for CNET.
We're here at Lenovo's big Windows 8 laptop unveiling and I have here the Lynx.
This is the full-blown Windows 8 hybrid laptop.
This is about 3 pounds, $599 for the tablet up here, $149 for the keyboard accessory.
Lenovo sets 16 hours of battery life for the whole operation here, 8 from the tablet and another 8 when you plug it into the keyboard.
Overall, pretty straightforward laptop set-up when it's like this.
It is a touchscreen of course.
Take it up, [unk] with the button down, pull the screen out and it comes out in Tablet mode.
It's 11.6-inch tablet.
It's running Windows 8 again, full-blown, Clovertrail CPU from Intel.
It's basically a new generation Adam chip.
For ports, nothing here; on this side, there's a volume button, power over here.
What's made me most impressed about this whole set-up is how light this tablet is.
It comes in just about 1 pound.
It sort of feels lighter than the iPad or any other tablet that I've held.
So, it's just a quick look at this thing while we can here at the event and we'll get a review of this as soon as we can.
