The Touch Book from Always Innovating won't sweep your floors or record "Lost," but it has the potential to shift the way we think about computers.
With its mobile-optimized ARM processor housed in an 8.9-inch touch-screen display, the computer pulls a pretty nifty trick. It loses its head. Use it like a laptop, as an easel, or as a tablet. Or put its magnetic back to use and hang it on your fridge. It's part netbook, part tablet PC, part something completely new. Call it a Frankengadget.
