First revealed back at CES 2012, the device features a rotating13.1-inch touchscreen and keyboard, letting it act like both a tablet and laptop.

That’s great with the full-fat Intel desktop version of the OS, but the new ARM build will be more tablet-centric, using the Windows RT operating system for a touch-focussed, battery-saving experience with double the battery life.

Other confirmed specs include a 256GB SSD and 8GB of RAM, squeezed into a 1.47kg, 16.9mm thick package.

Lenovo are going to be pretty busy come the launch of Windows 8. Just last week they revealed details of their own Surface rival, the ThinkPad Tablet 2, itself ready to touch down alongside Microsoft’s new OS.
