We have arrived in Las Vegas, ready to bring you the latest and greatest for parents from the insanely big International Consumer Electronics Show (CES2014). 1.9 Million Square Feet of gadgets, 150,000 people from all over the world and TVs so big you will need to buy a bigger home just to house them.
Take a look at this –
and you may well think – “Oh man the airlines totally decapitated your laptop.” Ah, but we are at CES and nothing is ever as it seems. Now look at this series of photos and the truth becomes clear…
The New 11 Inch MIIX 2 from Lenovo
Yep, we got our hands on the brand new Multimode 11″ MIIX 2 from Lenovo, due out in March 2014. It’s a Windows 8.1 computer, it’s a gorgeous 11″ tablet, it’s a personal entertainment device, it chops onions and it will put the kids to bed for you. Ok, not sure about those last two, but it is definitely cool. The screen easily pops off the keyboard and can become a stand alone tablet. Here is some more info…
“Recognizing that one design doesn’t fit all, the MIIX 2 gives people a different way to enjoy the benefits of multimode computing with its unique detachable design. MIIX 2 gives users the freedom to take only the touchscreen tablet when they’re on the go, and then connect back to the base for a full Windows 8.1 laptop experience when they need it. In Laptop Mode, they can use this form factor for a great combination of screen real estate with a full-size keyboard. Then they can simply turn the tablet 180° and insert it into the keyboard base to engage MIIX 2’s third mode, Stand Mode, to watch movies or view photos.”
