Our must have CES Gadget...

We have, as with all self respecting geeks, watching everything that has come out of CES.  Since I was on Vacation I am just catching the cool stuff.  Gizmodo shows off pictures of and talks about Lenovo's announcement of a "hybrid" laptop to be released later this year.  What do they mean by "hybrid"?  Well it's a laptop that is both a Linux and Windows Laptop.  It consists of two parts: a tablet disguised as the LCD Screen and the base part of the computer.  The Linux part of the system is the detachable Tablet PC/screen which is powered by an ARM Chip with 512MB of RAM and a touch screen.  The Windows PC half is the bulk of the physical machine running a Core 2 Duo with 4GB of RAM.
