Lenovo IdeaPad U1/LePad

One catch with tablets: When you need to do serious work, tapping on a touchscreen just doesn’t cut it. Most of us still need Windows or a Mac—something with a real keyboard—and that ultimately means carrying two devices. Lenovo’s solution: a Windows laptop that converts into a tablet. Flip a switch, and the 10.1-inch LePad pops out of its case, converting instantly into an Android slate. Lenovo has been working on this concept for well over a year now, and it finally looks close to finished. LePad has started shipping in China and should be here soon.
