>> Scott Stein: [Starts mid-sentence] ...here at CES 2010. Now there have been a lot of interesting laptop designs at this show, but one of the most unique and intriguing is the Lenovo IdeaPad U1 Hybrid. There's been a lot of talk about it and of course tablets have been pretty huge this year at CES. And the IdeaPad leverages the idea of possibly combining a netbook or small notebook-type device and a detachable tablet in one unit. The way that's done is actually with two discreet processors. In the base is a Core II ULV processor and a battery. The top lid also has its own battery and a QUALCOMM Snapdragon processor. And there's an 11.6-inch LED screen that functions for both devices. It undocks at the top, and when it does, it goes from a Windows 7 environment into the Skylight environment, which is a Lenovo OS environment that has widget-like web apps -- there are 18 that are included -- built-in. And they allow things like connection to Facebook, playing of movie files. And it also allows you to use it as an e-reader. You can play music on it. And it syncs all of your cloud data between the two when it docks. The 3G, the speakers, Bluetooth are all contained within the tablet device. This also has Wi-Fi, so both parts have Wi-Fi. And there's an SSD drive inside that's swappable to also contain a hard drive, if you want. The price will be at $999. And it's an interesting concept as a hybrid, for somebody who might wanna have a little bit of the best of both worlds in one unit. And you can bring it up as an e-reader like this. I'm Scott Stein, and this is the Lenovo IdeaPad U1 Hybrid notebook. ^M00:01:43 [ Music ]
