Lenovo's Ideapad U1 Hybrid

From the outside, it just looks like a curvy 11.6" notebook. The specs read like a regular notebook, too: It packs Intel's Core 2 Duo CPU, 4 GB of RAM, Windows 7, and a 128 GB solid-state drive. Shiny, red, and curved in all the right places, it's a good-looking notebook as it is, but there's more to this little guy than meets the eye. Because when you open the U1 Hybrid, you realize that the screen pops right out of the body and you've got yourself a tablet packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, Linux, 512 MB of RAM, and 16 GB of flash memory.

With a $1,000 price tag, it's not exactly cheap but it's definitely a fair price for what you're getting. Shipping in June.
