My disassembled 12" PowerBook G4, ready to have the old hard drive taken out and the new one put in. This was way harder than I expected it to be. If I’d looked at the instructions first, I would probably not have ordered the hard drive online, but just sent the damn thing off to Apple battery.

CES 2010 Lenovo IdeaPad U1 Hybrid Notebook

4

An up close demo of the Lenovo IdeaPad U1 Hybrid Notebook. The U1 is the first of it’s kinda. It’s a full function notebook and detachable 3G multitouch slate tablet. When docked the U1 runs Windows 7 off of a Core 2 Duo processor but in slate mode, the Qualcomm Snapdragon™ ARM processor kicks in with Lenovo’s customized Skylight (Android) OS. We really were impressed with the design of the U1 but a bit concerned for the polycarbonate top shell. It seemed a bit flimsy. Also the slate doesn’t have any ports, not even an earphone jack. Let’s hope Lenovo fixes that before production. We still want one though so when can we get it? Availability Summer 2010 More specs: -11.6″ HD LED screen (resistive multitouch) -128 GB SSD -3-cell battery (slate tablet), up to 4 hours -6-cell battery (laptop) up to 4 hours -combined 8 hours of battery life when used as a single unit -Built-in speakers on the back of slate
