November 14, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It seems like Lenovo is in a mood to surprise everyone out there. The company is planning to introduce a new device – the ThinkPad X1 Hybrid. It is interesting to see the world’s second largest PC maker expanding the ThinkPad line up, which has been having a successful run in the laptop market, with a hybrid model.

The hybrid, that has been leaked online, comes with the same media interface as that of the IdeaPad K1. It features Windows 7/Media Mode switching, instant-on convenience and battery that offer eight hours of video playback or up to 10 hours of web browsing.

The company will be bringing a new feature, christened “Instant Media Mode”, on the X1 so as to increase the battery efficiency.

Meanwhile, a note has also revealed Lenovo’s plan to release the 13 and 14-inch Ultrabooks in May. The 13-inch model will be coming with an entry price of $1300 whereas the 14-inch variant will start at $800.

We also found the next version of the ThinkPad X120e on the page. Christened X130e, the rugged netbook is equipped with an 11.6-inch screen, AMD processor, full-sized keyboard and battery with 8 hour back up. The device weighing just less than 4lbs is slated for launch in December.
