LG outs the Tab Book Duo: light Windows 8 convertible with 11 hours of battery life

LG just announced one fine Windows convertible out of the blue, the Tab Book Duo, entering the new era of thin and light Windows computers that have a battery life rivaling or surpassing iOS and Android slates. The Tab Book Duo consists of two components (duh) - a 10" screen part with undisclosed resolution, but disclosed kickstand, and a Bluetooth keyboard that can connect to your Tab Book and your smartphone at once, for instance. The processor part that makes the touted 11 hours of battery life possible remains a mystery, as LG just says a quad-core Intel processor, but with this kind of endurance from a thin and light design, we'd but on the fanless Core M edition. 

The weight of the tablet part of the Duo is just 530g, and that's with a USB 3.0 port, as well as a microHDMI one on board. With the keyboard tacked on, the Tab Book Duo stays under two pounds, for 792g of weight. The Windows 8.1 convertible will cost the equivalent of $670, is available today, and whoever buys it by next Monday, will receive a Microsoft wireless mouse thrown in for free, too.

I hope Lg has learnt from its mistake with the g3 (crap battery life, uninspiring lcd). Also, expect SuperAmoled, and fingerprint sensor to rival samsung & Apple.

Seem like a good tablet to meet customer average computing needs. Core M is finally here. Fanless design, wow! Look like I will get getting a new x86 Windows 8 tablet soon.

Completely off topic but WTF is up with the significant increase in ads on the mobile site? Ad on top, middle, and bottom with the additional ad that covers the entire screen as well as the little corner ad the is suppose to make you flip up the corner like it's a piece of paper. Almost getting to the point of being unusable on the mobile site.

Daniel P. your bet is way off on the core type. Let's see: quad core for a thin tablet and fanless: that's clearly Bay-Trail. Core M is always DUAL core and we have yet to see a fanless one! Both models I know with Core M actually have a fan.

Yep there's no quad Core Ms Which two? AFAIK there's only two Core M devices that have been released The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro (fan) and HP ENVY x2 13 (fanless)

I was talking about the Yoga 3 Pro and the Asus Zenbook ux305, both were being quite muted about it, but it seems they have a fan.
