Device powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon CPU

Lenovo has introduced the IdeaPad U1 Hybrid, a device which features a notebook base and a detachable tablet. The tablet integrates an LED-backlit 11.6-inch display and Qualcomm's Snapdragon ARM CPU running the Skylight Linux interface. Users can easily browse the internet and perform other basic functions with the tablet alone. A 16GB flash drive, 512MB of RAM, and Snapdragon integrated graphics round out the tablet specs.

When the tablet is docked to the notebook portion, it switches to Windows 7 and takes advantage of additional components including an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and hard drive options ranging up to a 128GB SSD.

The tablet portion is claimed to last up to eight hours on a single charge, while the docked unit runs for approximately six hours. Components such as 3G, W-Fi, and Bluetooth are shared between both sections.

The IdeaPad U1 Hybrid will be available in a variety of different packages, with the basic model fetching $1000. [via PC Magazine]
