It took longer than originally announced, but the first PC with a foldable screen is finally hitting the market: The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold may usher in a new category of mobile PCs - even if it probably will not break sales records.

It is not usual that manufacturers release two press-releases when they announce that a product is now available for pre-order. It does fit though, as Lenovo clearly views the ThinkPad X1 Fold as a special product. And it might be: After all, it is the first PC with a foldable display and at the same time a new entry to Lenovo's prestigious ThinkPad X1 brand.

Originally planned for a summer release, the ThinkPad X1 Fold goes on pre-oder today, with shipment targeted for the end of October. According to Lenovo, the delay from summer to fall has been used to enhance the design of the ThinkPad X1 Fold in a few ways, like a slight change in the screen bezel material or the kickstand design. The pen-loop has also been moved from the tablet to the Bluetooth keyboard.

People interested in buying the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold should probably not wait too long. In the second press release that is exclusively about the ThinkPad X1 Fold, Lenovo vice president Jerry Paradise writes that while the ThinkPad X1 Fold is not a limited edition, Lenovo will not make many units.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold will cost at least $2,499. It features a 13.3 inch foldable 4:3 screen and Intel's Lakefield hybrid CPU architecture.

In 2010 I started to get more and more involved with technology, especially notebooks have been my passion ever since. Of course I came across the detailed tests of Notebookcheck very quickly. With time I learned more and more about notebooks and started writing small reviews about notebooks in forums and blog pages. To earn some extra money during my studies I turned my hobby into my profession and joined the team of Notebookcheck in 2016. My personal interest is especially in business notebooks.
