Folding Lenovo Thinkpad X1 laptop gets the Unboxed Therapy treatment

Lenovo has been showing off their new folding laptop, including passing it around to review sites.

Called the Lenovo Thinkpad X1, they say the laptop is designed for highly mobile, tech-savvy professionals who demand the best tools, and promising that the unprecedented portability will in no way compromise productivity and reliability.

The stand-out feature of the laptop is that it offers a 13.3-inch screen in the same footprint as a 9-inch tablet, courtesy of the  OLED 2K display made in collaboration with LG Display that can fold in half and reduce its width by 50 percent.

This was also the feature which impressed the Unboxed Therapy crew the most in their hands-on video with the prototype device.

Lenovo says they see a number of scenarios for the Intel-powered Windows device, including:

It appears the main selling point, according to UT, of impressing other coffee drinkers at Starbucks, is not on the list.

As noted earlier, the device is still at prototype level, and the main issue at present appears to be that the operating system does not fluidly adapt to the different poses and changing form factors of the laptop – hopefully, something which will be addressed when it runs ModernPC OS.

What do our readers think of the device? Let us know below.
