Better than an iPad?

So I admit I have Apple envy sometimes.  They are great marketers and the products I have tried from them (iPod nano & shuffle and the iPhone) are great.  And right now I am thinking about getting an Apple TV because I seriously want to be free from cable/satellite eventually.  (you should look into's a pretty cool little thing and not too terribly expensive.)

But back to the topic...the iPad.  At first I was like "why would I want an iPad when I can do everything on my phone that I could do on that?  Plus it won't fit into my purse."  But as more and more people get one, I kind of want one.  I could use it like an eReader which would be nice and it would be less bulky than taking my laptop sometimes. 

But now I am really craving this thing:

I may be totally biased because I work for Lenovo, but how cool is this- The U1 Hybrid with the LePad is like a laptop and an iPad in one.  When the LePad is plugged in to the base it is a fully functioning Windows 7 laptop. But wait...with just the push a switch, the screen detaches and becomes an Android tablet.  I so want to see this in person before I decide.  And as of right now it is only available in China.  But it seriously looks so cool.

Here's a video that shows how it works:

And P.S. why do they had to name these things blah-blah "Pad"?  It makes it sound like a feminine product.  I much prefer the term "slate". 

P.P.S.  No one paid me to write any of this stuff.  Well unless you count my normal paycheck from Lenovo, but they don't pay me to write reviews of their stuff.  It's just my personal opinion and thought I would share!

P.P.P.S. No one paid me to write that review about Yogurt Mountain yesterday either...but if they find it and want to give me some free yogurt or something I would sure love it because in case you couldn't tell I love that place!

P.P.P.P.S.  How do you get paid to write reviews anyway?
