Lenovo recently held an event introducing new products. The most interesting one is the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold. It is the first foldable laptop from Lenovo and you can order one today.
Looking at the design, I think Lenovo wants to make it a workhorse whether you are on the move or working from home.
When paired with the accessories, it feels like a normal laptop and with a flip, it turns into a large touch screen display and you can continue to use the accessories to carry on your work.
Check out the intro video.

However, as with any 1st generation product, it is not tested in the field. Design-wise, it has a few nice touch like the hinge which looks very durable. It also has a built-in stand which is part of its leather cover (that cannot be removed).
Thickness-wise, it is very thick for a laptop but this is expected as everything is squeezed underneath the display. Specs-wise, it can go up to Intel Core i5 with 8GB of memory. Battery-wise, it can last about 8 to 10 hours.
The display is a 13.3″ 2K OLED 4:3 (2048 x 1536, 300 nits) DCI-P3 95% touchscreen which sounds very good except that when folded, you will be seeing half of it.
There are two USB-C ports and 1 nano-SIM port. BTW, it supports 5G. However, please check with the official site if it can be supported in Singapore or not.
You can check out the full specs HERE.
I tried to configure the highest specs with two accessories, the Lenovo Mod Pen and the Lenovo Fold Mini Keyboard, and ends up with a S$5,126.20 (after discount) price tag. Do note that it comes without the Integrated Mobile Broadband and WWAN SIM Card.
I am currently using a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon and I love their built quality. However, as you already know, it is not cheap and you need to be adventurous to try out their first version of a foldable laptop.
Will you buy one?
