Ever wanted a tablet? There is the iPad, and various other tablets, but they sacrifice two things, a full operating system, and a physical keyboard. The Lenovo IdeaPad gives you the functions of a tablet, and a net book. With a simple twist of the screen, you can actually hold the IdeaPad like a net book, or a tablet. Since the operating system is windows 7 you get the complete functionalities of a regular net book, even while using this device in tablet form.
This IdeaPad features a 10.1″ multi-touch screen. This device uses the Intel Atom N450 processor clocked in at 1.66GHz. The IdeaPad has 1GB of DDR2 Ram with a 250GB HardDrive. The screen on this tablet runs at 1024×600 which is not HD. Since the screen is supposed to swivel around, items are located in different locations. For example, the webcam is located towards the right side of the IdeaPad. Since there isn’t a gyroscope or accelerometer in the IdeaPad there is a button to rotate the screen.
The IdeaPad has the same inputs as a regular net book. Two USB ports, one VGA Port, and Ethernet Port, A charging port, and a microphone and headphone port. There is also a built in Card Reader.
Weighing in at 2.76 lbs and with a battery life about 4 hours, this tablet includes features which other tablets exclude, including a fully functional operating system, as well as a keyboard. If you don’t want to give up your windows applications nor want to type on a virtual keyboard, the Lenovo IdeaPad is the device for you.
