Lenovo swings for a fence with a rare Tiger Lake laptop design


Expanding / The X1 Fold aims at the same basic target as the Samsung Galaxy Fold, but with a more laptop-like form factor.


Lenovo is following Dell Heels Two of its own 13-inch Intel Tiger Lake laptops have been announced, but Lenovo’s new design is significantly “there” than Dell. Lenovo’s two new designs are the X1 Nano (a traditional ultra-lightweight laptop weighing less than 2 pounds) and the inaccurate laptop design X1 Fold with a folding screen. Yes, that’s right. The X1Fold features a foldable LCD display, aiming for the same basic target that Samsung did with the Galaxy Fold. Our own Ron Amadeo Examination The Galaxy Fold took place in January and wasn’t very impressed, but it’s been nearly a year. Lenovo may have understood some things Samsung didn’t do. The X1 fold is pending judgment until it is available.

X1 nano

The X1 Nano has a very simple design. It’s very smooth and lightweight, but apart from that, it’s a standard 13-inch laptop. As shown above, it is available in black and no further colors have been announced at this time.

However, it’s worth emphasizing how thin and lightweight the X1 Nano is. It’s about 25% lighter and 10% thinner than the XPS 13. The keyboard has an uncompressed arrow key layout, but there is also a Thinkpad Trackpoint. This is usually either furiously loved or hated as well.

To conclude the main difference, there is a large cooling vent on the right side of the X1 Nano. This is a better placement for wraps or blankets than a cooling vent on the underside of the XPS 13.

When it comes to ports, the X1 Nano is even more minimal. It has two Thunderbolt 4 / USB-C ports and a 3.5mm audio jack. that’s it.

The X1 Nano will start at $ 1,400 and will be available in the fourth quarter of 2020.

X1 fold

The X1 Fold is a 13-inch lightweight laptop design with another Lenovo Tiger Lake. According to Lenovo’s own reports about it, except that it’s not a perfect laptop. Of course, unless that is the case.

Are you still confused? We do not blame you. I think it’s a bit premature for everyone to really know that folding screens are really more convenient (and not) than traditional folding screens, but for early adopters, folding screens-or at least will be- Here for you.

The fully deployed X1 Fold features a 4: 3 13.3 inch QXGA (2048 x 1536) touchscreen display in 300 nits of brightness. However, it does not have to be fully deployed. It can be folded in about half either inside or outside and can be configured to display separate windows on either side of the seam.

Fold almost certainly has a better camera than the X1 Nano. The Nano specsheet simply specifies “HD camera” — which can mean only 0.9MP (720p) —but the Fold specsheet specifies 5MP (2560×1920).

X1 Fold is currently available for pre-order. Prices start at $ 2,500.. There is no specific shipping date or general availability date yet.
