Ever since Lenovo acquired the ThinkPad brand, they have rejuvenated this line of iconic PCs into the 21st century, in more ways than one. We here at Stuff can attest to this as we’ve reviewed their products before. Which comes to no surprise that Lenovo is upping the ante for their next wave of Thinkpads.
During the Lenovo Accelerate conference last night at Orlando, Florida, the company unveiled a ThinkPad with a foldable display. Like a giant foldable smartphone, this laptop is part of Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 line and definitely functions like a smooth and powerful laptop. This foldable concept PC has a 13.3-inch display when in full-screen mode, and folds up to a 9.6-inch device. While the Samsung Galaxy Fold is delayed for now, Lenovo’s folding ThinkPad will be coming sometime in 2020, with working models being sent out for review to a number of media outlets.
In the non-folding side of things, Lenovo has announced a new ThinkBook line that aims to be an affordable range of ThinkPads. The two new laptops in this range are the ThinkBook 13S and 14S, with each being 13 and 14-inch screens respectively, as well as 4 GB of RAM and 8 GB of RAM respectively. Besides that, they both have Intel’s 8th Gen Core i7 processors, AMD Radeon 540X graphics, 512GB of SSD storage, and run Windows 10 Pro. The ThinkBook line is expected to launch at the end of the month.
Along with these new products, Lenovo is also updating their current ThinkPad X1 Extreme with 9th Gen Core i9 processors, Nvidia GTX 1650 Max-Q graphics, and an optional 4K OLED display. This new ThinkPad X1 Extreme is expected to arrive sometime in July. Hopefully, these new range of products makes it to our side of the world soon.
