Lenovo Delivers Hybrid Laptop, Switches Between Linux and Windows

While it's not the very first laptop to deliver Linux alongside Windows in a hybrid portable system, Lenovo's new dual CPU, dual-OS ThinkPad X1 Hybrid is perhaps the most fully realized attempt yet to give users Linux and Windows in a well-designed portable machine. Lenovo's laptop, which will be shown at the Consumer Electronic Show next week, can switch between Linux and Windows with one click, and runs Linux on a dual-core Qualcomm chip.

The laptop starts at $1,599 and Lenovo claims that it can offer users up to 10 hours of battery life if they use Linux and Windows in tandem. The system has the excellent keyboard that ThinkPads are known for, an HDMI port, a backlit keyboard, and a high-end audio setup. TIME has collected some of the other specs and details.
