    If they put that IPS screen into a remake of the X30x series, then I'd be excited.

    I personally also am very excited.

    With the way technology is heading now, it would be great to have access to the tablet and traditional laptop computer.

    I am disappointed that they are not releasing it as soon as Ivy Bridge comes out but rather waiting till Windows 8. I would hope this is because Windows 8 is going to be better suited to a touch screen than Windows 7 so Lenovo is waiting till they can show the full potential of their laptop rather than "it's great but just wait till Windows 8 is out and it will be sooo much better, oh yeah by the way that will be however much to upgrade to Windows 8 thanks".

    Why, that would add weight, reduce battery life and increase the price. It is built to ultra book specifications and price and while it is a little more expensive it does offer some nice flexibility and I am seriously considering this for my tablet needs.

    Does anyone know of any sites/stores taking pre-orders for this?

    Anyone remember the Lenovo IdeaPad U1 Hybrid from CES 2010 and CES 2011? It's still vaporware.

    The Ideapad Yoga is an interesting concept that solves many key issues with the touchscreen PC. But after the IdeaPad U1, which for all I know, might still be headed to market, I'm not going to be very quick to jump on the bandwagon.

    Well, that's depressing. Here's hoping Lenovo will see this through... especially with Win8 Metro and touch interface, hopefully MS is encouraging this and other similar models.

    I just bought the U300s (which I love!) but I would seriously consider upgrading again to the Yoga if it comes out 2nd half of 2012 like they advertized at CES.
