World’s more prominent chip maker, Intel, has collaborated with PC and laptop maker, Lenovo, to create the world’s first folding PC called Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold. Man, that thing here looks super thick!
The ThinkPad X1 Fold is built on Intel Core processor with Intel Hybrid Technology (code name “Lakefield”) and it lay claims as the first fully functional PC with a folding OLED display.
With a chassis made from lightweight alloys, carbon fiber and covered in luxurious leather, the X1 Fold can be use as a regular 13.3-inch laptop with the mini fold keyboard, an all-in-one PC, a book, or a big-ass tablet.
It supports touch (obviously), as well as Active Pen input. It will run on Windows 10x that will have an enhanced foldable user experience. Plus, there will be an optional 5G connectivity for on-the-go use.
We are not aware of the technical details. However, we do know this little guy will have Dolby Audio, USB-C for connecting a second display, a full-size keyboard and mouse, and it weighs under 2.2 lbs (1 kilogram).
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold Foldable PC will have a starting price of $2,499 when it arrives sometime in mid-2020. Windows 10X will only land at a later date. At launch it will run on Windows 10.
The advertised stand, aptly named ThinkPad X1 Fold Stand, will hit the market on second half of 2020. No pricing on that one yet, though.
