Tablets and notebooks are in plentiful supply at this year's CES, but there's room between the two for some fun-looking hybrids.
One such machine is Samsung's PC 7 Series, a Windows 7 tablet that incorporates a slide-out keyboard and trackpad into its 1.9cm-thick frame.
The combination of a 10.1in multi-touch display and a dedicated keyboard is said to make the machine "ideal for creating and consuming content", and Samsung is hoping its portable PC experience will appeal to a mix of casual users, professionals and students.
Under the hood, the PC 7 Series will feature an upcoming Intel Atom "Oak Trail" Z670 processor, integrated Intel graphics, 2GB of memory and solid-state storage in either 32GB or 64GB capacities. The 10.1in multi-touch display touts a 1,366x768 resolution and 340-nits brightness, and Samsung's doing its best to maintain PC-like functionality by including a pair of USB 2.0 ports, HDMI out, a four-in-one card reader and an integrated 1.3 megapixel webcam.
WiFi, WiMax and 3G options will all be available, and Samsung puts battery life at around 9-hour mark. All sounds mighty useful, and the PC 7 Series isn't far off. We're told it'll be available in March priced from $699 (£450).
