Earlier today, Lenovo has announced the new ThinkPad X1 Hybrid laptop that was designed to sport a secondary operating system and an ARM-based Qualcomm SoC in order to deliver up to 10 hours of battery life to its users
This system is called the Instant Media Mode, IMM for short, by Lenovo and runs a Linux-based OS that can be activated by simply clicking an icon on the laptop's home screen.
Powered by a dual-core Qualcomm chip and featuring up to 16GB of memory, the OS can be used to watch videos, view photos, listen to music and browse the web while preserving precious battery life.
In the 13.3-inch ThinkPad X1 Hybrid, the special IMM hardware can be paired together with Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors and the Windows 7 operating system.
