Engadget received some photos of the upcoming Lenovo IdeaPad U1 Hybrid, this product is a 11.6" laptop with a retractable multitouch screen. When the screen is attached to the base the system runs Windows 7 Home Premium on an Intel Core 2 Duo CULV processor, and when the screen is removed it transforms into a Qualcomm Snapdragon powered tablet with a 16GB SSD and Lenovo's Skylight Linux interface.
When the screen is locked into its upright position in the laptop's chassis, it's powered by a CULV Intel Core 2 Duo processor and runs Windows 7 Home Premium. But when the screen is pulled from its shell it morphs into a Qualcomm Snapdragon powered-multitouch slate with a 16GB SSD that boots Lenovo's customized Skylight Linux interface. Two processors and two operating systems? Hybrid is right.
The Lenovo IdeaPad U1 Hybrid will start shipping in June 2010 for $999.
