Lenovo took its popular Yoga convertible and shrank it down to 11 inches. It also introduced theThinkPad Helix (shown below) at the CES Unveiled event Sunday night. The company calls this clamshell a “rip and flip” design because the screen pops off from the keyboard base, and then can be reattached even after being rotated 180 degrees.
One hardware highlight came from Intel, which showed off an incredibly thin design concept for what it sees as the next generation of the Ultrabook. The 17-millimeter-thick concept device features a detachable touch screen that functions on its own as a standalone Windows 8 slate and, naturally, it carries Intel’s upcoming Core i-series processor.
