Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Hybrid Laptop launching at CES

Ultrabook specs and with Windows and Linux on board

Lenovo have decided to break all the rules, they've managed to make a thinner laptop, not use the word Ultrabook and then put both Windows and Linux on it

Lenovo will be showcasing their brand-new Laptop hybrid the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Hybrid which boasts the same incredible form factor as the original but features double the battery-life.

Squeezed into its ultra-minimalist body are two fully fledged operating systems, Windows 7 being the main event however, at the push of a button the Instant Media Mode switches the X1 to a version of Linux, using a dual-core Qualcomm processor and 16GB of memory, becoming essentially a smartphone.

By switching to these components the X1 Hybrid is able to carve its battery life allowing an impressive 10 hours whilst still letting you watch movies, browse the web and also view photos.

Of course being a premium business laptop first and formost you'll also get Lenovo's Rapid Charge Technology which lets you charge the X1 Hybrid to 80 per cent capacity in just 30mins.

Finally, and most astonishingly are the dimensions, all of these specs are neatly placed into a body which measures at less than 0.6 inches and weighs less than 4 pounds.

Coming in at over £1000 the X1 Hybrid may not be the cheapest ultra-portable laptop out there but by the sounds of it it's certainly one of the most capable, question is, will it be able to topple the reign of the MacBook Air.
