Ideapad U1 Hybrid looks perfect to me

This is exactly the kind of thing I have been waiting for. The Lenovo Ideapad U1.

I owned a HTC Shift which with the dual processor option and the dual operating system setup wouldhave been perfect except that the low power consumption OS (the phone part that promised so much) was horribly crippled by HTC. I loved the idea of being able to fire up the unit to web browse, do email etc and have days of battery life but in that mode you couldn’t access bluetooth, wireless, extra SD storage and heaps more. You had to boot into Windows and then you got an hour battery life. Almost but fail HTC.
Enter the Ideapad U1. A slate with it’s own low power consumption processor, light weight operating system (linux) but if you dock it you get Core Duo power and a full keyboard. The best of both worlds I say. Bring it out, soon!


A Merry Vaio X-mas!

An opportunity presented itself to procure a Vaio X a couple of days back and I am now comitted to getting it for my wife – her Macbook’s battery drained just a couple of days back  and she’s so over it now so time for a new laptop!

This automatically means the forgoing of 1 or 2 of my MID devices though..out with the old to make way (and funds!) for the new 🙂

I’ve always been a Vaio fan, owning my first Vaio Picturebook back in 2002, with the most recent being the Vaio P.

I’m pretty excited with the X as I just love it’s slimness. It oozes sex appeal and I’m esp happy that it has a SD slot!

So stay tuned for further postings once I get my grubby hands on the X…I think I’ll have to pry this baby out of my wife’s clutches once she sees how nice the X is..heheh!
