Lenovo unveils the world's first foldable PC

Lenovo unveils the world's first foldable PC

The ThinkBook brand is new and will sit alongside ThinkPad and Lenovo's other PC brands. Lenovo's press release summarizes the latest entrants into the workforce thusly: "Comprised of Millennials and Gen Z, these two generations of workers crave meaningful employment and expect company devices that blur the lines of work, life, passion and goal".

We've seen the foldable phones and the somewhat mixed reactions to them, but now Lenovo has thrown its hand in the ring with a foldable PC. The 13-inch and 14-inch full-HD display variants sport a premium feel, can lay flat at 180 degrees, and feature ultra-narrow bezels.

Anyway. Here's a laptop with a foldable screen. Yet here comes a problem: the amount of space on the desk is finite, so there is a need for smaller desktop PCs and here is where Lenovo's new ThinkCentre Nano M90N comes into play.

Unlike on an iPad, a foldable display allows the on-screen keyboard to not block the body of an email. A Wacom stylus is also included for handwriting, drawing, and annotating.

Lenovo intends to launch this foldable PC in 2020.

However, the burning question everyone wants to know about is: How does the crease look? Actually, not bad! The crease is more visible in photos and videos, but in person, when the device is completely unfolded, it's nearly impossible to see.

How well the foldable screen holds up long term is a different question. As such, it's testing the hinge to endure twice the amount of cycles that hinges are rated for in its regular laptops.

My time with Lenovo's foldable PC was short. To simply call it a "foldable laptop" would be to imply all laptops aren't foldable, but to call it a "foldable tablet" would be inaccurate. I'm most impressed by the foldable screen when it's open, but there's no getting around the thickness when it's closed up.

Lenovo will reveal full details of its foldable PCnext year.

The device utilizes Intel technology and includes a number of notable features, the incredible display aside, including stereo speakers, a pair of USB-C ports, and an infrared camera. The photos reveal that the PC folds out into a larger two-sided display, with one side working as a touchscreen keyboard.
