The technology, despite being in its initial stages, looks quite promising and the new foldable PC made quite a few headlines when it debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year. Let’s run you through this new offering from Lenovo and find out if it’s any good or just a gimmick to capture customers’ attention.

What’s Inside

The new Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Fold is a fully functional tablet PC that boasts of a 13.3” 4:3 foldable OLED screen which you can bend into half making it exactly the same size as that of a hardcover novel. Even though there is a discernable crease around the middle of the screen, similar to the one we saw in Samsung Galaxy Fold, it is not too distracting as was the case with the smartphone screen.

The screen does come with a slightly chunkier bezel but it looks cool in the overall scheme of things. It offers 2048x1536 px resolution which matches the quality of the crystal-clear 9.7” Retina Display that comes in Apple’s iPads.

Made using a combo of lightweight allows with carbon fiber, it comes covered in a leather folio cover that lends it a more luxurious look. Your new foldable PC is powered by Intel Core Processors using Intel Hybrid Technology
