25 Must-See Products At CES 2012

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Hybrid

Lenovo has made a practice in recent years of making a splash at CES, and this year looks like it will be no different. The computer maker has revamped its popular ThinkPad X1 notebook with a few new tricks. Lenovo's ultra-thin enterprise notebook now comes with "Instant Media Mode" that allows users to switch from their Windows desktop to a second open-source operating system (powered by a second CPU from Qualcomm) for video playback and streaming media. Instant Media Mode reduces the notebook's power consumption and extends the battery life. Lenovo says the X1 Hybrid will launch in the second quarter for approximately $1,599.
