Foldable tablets and phones have become somewhat famous in the past year, but what about PCs? The world is entering a new era as foldable PCs are becoming a thing, and the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold will be the first of many. Mobile computing enthusiasts will likely find this device to be everything they can hope for, as it shakes up the traditional form factor of PCs.
When not in use, it folds up like a book and even looks the part, thanks to the back leather panel. While there are a few different spec configurations available, the weight begins around 2.2-lbs (0.99 kg). Folded, the X1 measures 1.09-inches x 6.23-inches x 9.29-inches and unfolded, it measures 0.45-inches x 11.79-inches x 9.29-inches (H x W x D).
There is a “Mood Switcher” app that allows the user to orient the windows to however they want to use them. It’s effortless to either split the screen into two or opt for full-width mode for a single, large display. Also, there is an on-screen keyboard that automatically pops up whenever it is needed. There is an optional wireless (Bluetooth) one available, along with a pen, speaking of keyboards. These accessories enhance the experience users can have with the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold.
You can use it in various ways: laptop, split-screen for multi-tasking, tablet, or as one large display. Not only has it been designed and tested for durability and performance, but the X1 Fold is also the winner of 43 CES awards.
