Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold 20RL000FGE

77.1% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold laptop in review: Revolutionary or overpriced experiment? | Notebookcheck

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold Laptop Review
Source: Reviewed.com English
The X1 Fold is undoubtedly unique and futuristic, and its malleable form factor is designed to be used in a myriad of different ways. It's durable, and it's a head-turner, but ultimately, it's not practical at all, and most of its flaws outweigh whatever versatility it's designed to offer.

88% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold review: Foldable displays are cool but perhaps still a niche product
Source: Techaeris English
The ThinkPad X1 Fold is a solid first attempt at folding a laptop/tablet from Lenovo. As with any new category of device, it’s not for everyone; it’s expensive, it has some improvements that Lenovo could make, but early adopters will enjoy this device for what it is. If you’re looking for a seasoned and proven device, you should wait; Lenovo will improve this. Waiting will also bring the cost down, especially when other manufacturers enter the same market.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold: When Hardware And Software Don’t Mix
Source: On MSFT English
The technology behind the folding aspect of the X1 Fold is fascinating, but actual productivity from this device is middling, especially for its price. At close to $3,000, users are paying a $1,500 premium for the convenience of being able to fold up their laptops in a semi-new way. With only 8GB and a Core i5 chip, it’s not meant to be a workhorse or even a mainstream creativity device for mass adoption. Couple those points with this janky Windows 10 experience, the X1 Fold at best is an engineering reference device.

60% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold Review: the future is here, kind of
Source: T3 English
This innovative tablet/laptop combo boasts a folding screen that makes it a doddle to transform from one mode to another. This makes it ultra-portable but aside from the screen, it's fairly standard.

Intel UHD Graphics G7 (Lakefield GT2 64 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Lakefield G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). Similar to the Iris Plus G7 in Ice Lake CPUs but with a much lower clock speed of only 200 - 500 MHz and therefore only performing on a level with the Intel UHD Graphics 620. The Lakefield chips are produced in the modern 10nm process at Intel produced.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

The rest of the SoC is similar to the Ice Lake chips, like the Gen 11 graphics card with 64 EUs (Iris Plus G7). The SoC is manufactured in 10nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.30":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


75.53%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
