One PC, Two Devices: Lenovo Reveals the Industry’s First Hybrid Notebook
Detachable Screen Lets Users Switch Between Full Function Notebook Mode and 3G Multitouch Slate Tablet for Mobile Internet
I guess that there are people out there that actually NEED this feature.
I think that for far less money, you can get far better performance from a traditional design.
With the extra money you can buy a Saws-All and cut it in half!
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
It would be nicer, if that big red lid could flip around and snap to the bottom or something when you had the screen detached.
Still, it's an interesting concept.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Not to mention you're packing two batteries instead of the just one. And you can get notebook where the screen swivels and lies flat like the HP tx2 series.
Cool design, but I agree, more of a novelty than anything.
You know, now that I think about it, I wouldn't mind seeing this feature in the 12.1" or 14" laptops. The base could provide the extra power when the tablet is plugged in.
I wonder what kind of a connection they use between the base and the tablet, plus how much wear and tear could it handle?
I don't mean to be a pain Gibbersome, but can you please use the edit button. You seem to double post in every thread.
Back on topic, I think this is a pretty awesome design. After all, the market is slowly swinging to touch computers and this seems like a very logical solution. If you need to hit the road with less weight and little performance, then you grab the screen, However when you're at home and need the extra performance, then you dock it back.
Going to what gib said about the wear and tear, I'd imagine it's as durable as the dock ports on modern business notebooks. (Usually found on the bottom of the notebook.) Can't say I have heard of them breaking or anything.
It might be when I reply to two different posts on the main page, it will show up as replies under their respective posts. But within the forums, it shows up as a double post.
I really like the multi app functionality on this unit. Plus it is energy centric as well to a point. Not to mention it functions as a tablet and a standard laptop so it's super multi use.
That is until the latch holding the tablet into the laptop casing gets loose or breaks then you have a tablet and a $200+ keyboard that you can't use.
Lol, but at least you'd still have the tablet. I wonder if the tablet can be charged independently of the base.
