The Lenovo ThinkCentre Nano M90N: When Small Is Beautiful

Firstly, Lenovo refers to the product as the ThinkPad X1 foldable prototype and it will be similar in processing power and architecture of a common PC being Windows-based and powered by an undisclosed future Intel technology.

According to Lenovo, the hardware details and availability for the foldable ThinkPad X1 are expected to be revealed sometime in 2020.

The PC is powered by Intel processor and runs on Windows operating system.

"Made for highly mobile, tech-savvy professionals who demand the best tools, the new foldable PC joins the premium ThinkPad X1 family, promising that the unprecedented portability will in no way compromise productivity and reliability".

We don't have very many technical details about the above foldable so far.

For a starting price of a little over $700, the ThinkBooks tip the scales around 3 pounds (a little more for the 14-inch model) and are crafted from aluminum and magnesium.

While foldable smartphones have been grabbing a lot of headlines recently (and in the case of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, not for good reasons), this is the first time we've seen a foldable device that aims to replace your laptop. 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. Billed as the world's first foldable PC, the device represents an entirely new form factor that eschews a detachable keyboard in favour of a folding glass display.

Lenovo says that issues related to the hinge, screen durability and protection "have all been addressed".

As with foldable phones, I'm still incredibly skeptical of devices with bendable screens.

Folded up, though, the tablet morphs into small laptop-like device with half of the screen used as a regular screen and the other as a touchscreen keyboard. The demo video, however, reveals the foldable device comes with side-mounted speaker grilles, USB port, front-facing camera, and usual storage slots.

What are your thoughts on Lenovo's foldable PC prototype? Still, it was enough to get an idea of what a foldable PC is going to look like and what it'll be like to work on one.
