WORLD'S FIRST FOLDABLE PC: LENOVO THINKPAD X1 FOLD
Lenovo ThinkPad series is Lenovo’s most sought-after line of laptops. The Lenovo ThinkPad series houses the best Lenovo ThinkPads including the Lenovo latest ThinkPad. The Lenovo latest ThinkPad is Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold which is the world’s first-ever foldable PC. Unveiled at CES® 2020 as a part of Lenovo ThinkPad series, the Lenovo latest ThinkPad: ThinkPad X1 Fold was originally teased in May 2019. Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold is the first fully functional PC in the world that boasts a folding OLED display. We have spent a considerable amount of time gathering every single piece of information about the Lenovo latest ThinkPad. Here is everything we know about one of the most talked-about Lenovo ThinkPads:
Co-engineered with Intel, the X1 Fold boasts Intel® Core™ Processors that feature Intel® Hybrid Technology. It offers unprecedented performance and productivity rates owing to its powerful processor and intuitive operating system. It takes multitasking to a whole other level by letting the user load multiple large files and download numerous applications at the same time without lagging or slowing down. Moreover, its processor is protected with a superior combo of lightweight alloys and carbon fibre to make sure that it remains immune to bumps and shocks.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold is smaller than the rest of Lenovo ThinkPads that Lenovo has ever created so its cooling can be a major concern for consumers. To tackle this issue, Lenovo has introduced a completely new type of cooling system that it has built from the ground up. To keep things cool, the revolutionary cooling system comprises a heat sink, a heat spreader, and a fan. This well thought set up sandwiches the whole motherboard to prevent it from heating up. This not only keeps the PC cool but also increases its reliability.
DESIGN & DISPLAY
The X1 Fold features optimally sized 13.3-inches of OLED that is the world’s first-ever foldable screen. The best part about the OLED screen is that it does not consume a lot of power so the battery will not run out fast. It delivers the best visual experience with high colours, brightness, and a wide colour range. The ThinkPad X1 Fold not only delivers an immersive lifelike visual experience, but it is also very stylish when it comes to its looks. It features a narrow black bezel that frames the display and gives it a very professional, yet stylish, look. Moreover, the ThinkPad X1 has an amazing audio quality, similar to all Lenovo ThinkPads, owing to Dolby Audio.
Enjoy one-of-a-kind flexibility with the ThinkPad X1 Fold which can be operated in several modes such as portrait mode and landscape mode, etc. Prepare your latest presentation, and review files, in the landscape mode that you can set up using the integrated kickstand that is a part of its leather folio case. The X1 also features a Bluetooth Mini Fold Keyboard that is stored inside the system when it is folded closed. It is secured with magnets, so it does not fall, and you do not have to worry about charging it because it is wirelessly charged inside the X1 Fold.
If you do not want to use the keyboard and want a more portable option, then you can switch to the portrait mode which makes it easy to draw out concepts or take notes during a meeting or a lecture with its Active Pen.
The ThinkPad X1 has another level of flexibility. Its screen can be folded completely flat and you can use it as a tablet or you can bend it lightly, according to your preference, to use it as a book.
You can also use two completely independent displays by using it in the laptop mode to enhance your efficiency and multitask, with ease and, at a fast pace. You can do two separate tasks at the same time; attend a video call on one screen and edit a presentation on the other. You can make use of two different displays in both landscape and portrait mode.
If you are someone with a busy schedule and you are always up and running, then this device will transform your life. It will completely change the way you use your laptop on a daily basis. It weighs less than 2.2 pounds and you can take it with you, wherever you go. X1 Fold will fit in your back pocket easily, so you do not even need to carry an extra bag on your shoulder. The X1 Fold is made from high-quality material that makes it strong and durable enough to endure rugged treatment and bumps and shocks on the road.
Similar to other Lenovo ThinkPads, the ThinkPad X1 Fold delivers fantastic portability. It provides the efficiency of a laptop and the portability of a smartphone as it morphs through different modes ranging from a small footprint device to a full-sized 13.3 inches OLED display.
The ThinkPad X1 Fold can be paired with the ThinkPad X1 Presenter Mouse, which is a wireless remote control that allows you to connect to two devices at the same time. It will transform the way you present at meetings with its virtual laser pointer.
For an enhanced listening experience, you can use the ThinkPad X1 ANC Headphones that are equipped with active noise-cancelling technology and deliver crystal-clear audio.
For the ease of artists and graphic designers, the ThinkPad X1 Fold can be paired with Lenovo Mod Pen. The Lenovo Mod Pen features tilt detection in a low latency stylus and it can be customized using the Lenovo Pen App.
Type endlessly for hours with the Lenovo Fold Mini Keyboard that magnetically attaches to the Lenovo X1 Fold and connects via Bluetooth®.
