We've previously established that the NEC Lavie Mini -- that 8-inch laptop that doubles as a gaming machine -- is a charmingly weird concept that stands a solid shot making it production. To learn more about the Mini, and to get a broader sense of the factors and decision making that goes into taking a concept from prototype to final product, Lenovo Japan president and NEC PC chief David Bennett joined us for a surprisingly frank conversation on our virtual CES stage.

In a subsequent exchange, Bennett confirmed to me that -- based on the response the Lavie Mini has received -- development inside Lenovo/NEC has accelerated to the point where it looks like the machine actually will make it to market.
