There is something a little unusual about Lenovo's new X100e laptop; inside you will find a single core Athlon Neo MV40 CPU, not an Intel Atom. Even though it retains the smaller size of the X series, it still has a 11.6" 1366 x 768 display, along with 4GB of RAM, a Realtek 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi adapter, and a 5200RPM HDD of 160GB to 320GB. The 6 cell battery does interfere with the style of the notebook so you will have to decide between keeping the sleek lines or longer battery life.

While yesterday's news was mostly dominated by Lenovo and Asus, MSI is not to be missed with their new line of mobile computer products.

Lenovo is taking the wraps off a unique mobile product at CES. It is called the IdeaPad U1 (not to be confused with the Irish rock band) and is being dubbed as "hybrid PC". The U1 is actually two computers in a single form factor: the screen detaches from the notebook to become a tablet PC complete with its own battery and independent operating system.
