Lenovo Teases The Future Of PCs

Lenovo Teases The Future Of PCs

Lenovo unveiled the futuristic ThinkPad X1 at the company's Accelerate 2019 conference in Orlando, Florida.

Wake up, fold it into a book, and start the day scanning your social media feeds in bed. Both, Lenovo says, are "designed for business buyers unwilling to make trade-offs in essentials such as, security, reliability, and support services, while satisfying the demand for sleek-looking devices that bring the familiar smartphone experience to PCs".

Walk to your kitchen, unfold it, and stand it up for hands-free viewing of your top news sites.

Lenovo was very cagey about the details of its foldable PC despite it only being a year out from potentially landing in users pockets, however, there are a few details we can latch onto at the moment to conceptualize an end result.

Game of Thrones showrunners get first post-Skywalker Star Wars film
Iger also teased that a third Star Wars TV series is in the works for the company's Disney+ streaming service. Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss are officially taking the reigns of Star Wars .

Jews Prefer Joe Biden Over Bernie Sanders
Bernie Sanders' campaign announced it had ratified a union contract, becoming the first presidential effort to achieve that. Lynch continues, "One of the reasons I'm supporting the Vice President is because on day one he will be a world leader".

Brexit party will unveil full policies after European Union elections, says Farage
Previous "indicative votes" failed to find agreement on any way forward. The newly formed Brexit Party, led by former U.K.

Emphasising its versatility, Lenovo says their prototype is the "world's first foldable PC", and is geared toward "highly mobile, tech-savvy professionals".

You'd be able to take it to meetings where you'd use the pen to take notes and use it as a large screen tablet to view TV or a movie when back at home.

After lunch, set up the stand and use its mechanical keyboard to type out a few work emails. The Windows-based device will feature a foldable OLED screen from LG Display; it has a 2K resolution and 4:3 aspect ratio, measures 9.6-inches in half-screen, and 13.3-inches for the full screen. That's the apparent reasoning behind Lenovo's latest ThinkPad - a tablet/laptop hybrid that can be folded like a book. It's interesting that Lenovo's choosing to call this a foldable PC instead of a foldable tablet. Part of Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 range, the device doesn't yet have a name and doesn't fit neatly into any category. Hopefully we'll find out more about foldable laptop/tablet/thing closer to its scheduled 2020 release. Until then, it is going to work on further refining this prototype and figure out ways on how it would be useful in real-life.

There's still a lot of details we don't know about the device like how much it'll cost (my guess is it'll be really expensive) and how well apps will adapt to the different modes when the screen is bent.
