Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold is a Force Multiplier for Road Warriors at CES 2020

The ThinkPad brand from Lenovo has always represented serious business on the move, right from its IBM origins. At CES 2020, the company unveiled what is possibly the best foldable PC design we've seen till date, the ThinkPad X1 Fold. The X1 Fold is a 13.3-inch tablet that folds perfectly along the middle to either a book-like orientation, or as a laptop, in which the top half becomes the display, and the bottom half your keyboard of whichever possible layout. If a touchscreen keyboard doesn't appeal to you, you can dock an accessory that has a physical keyboard and trackpad.

Under the hood of the X1 Fold is an Intel "Lakefield" Hybrid x86 SoC that combines high-performance and high-efficiency x86 cores and dynamically allots workload to them while power-gating on the fly (a la ARM big.LITTLE). When it comes out mid-2020 (likely a Computex 2020 launch), the ThinkPad X1 Fold will be driven by Windows 10X, a new operating system Microsoft is designing specifically for dual-screen mobile computing devices. The Flex 5G is Lenovo's first business notebook with an integrated 5G modem (in addition to Wi-Fi 6), so you can enjoy high-speed mobile Internet on the move. Lastly, we spotted the Lenovo Ducati notebook, a co-branded product of the company's MotoGP team sponsorship.

Thermaltake Announces the TT Premium X1 RGB Keyboard

Thermaltake has announced another entry to their keyboard lineup, which takes the form of the TT Premium X1 RGB. This keyboard, as the name implies, employs copious amounts of RGB lighting (16.8 million color illumination with 12 dynamic lighting effects), and delivers users' option of tactile feel with the choice of either Cherry MX Blue or Cherry MX Silver switch options, in a 104-key ANSI layout. The keys are of the floating type, there's transparent housing for the switches to help all the RGB goodness better envelop the keys. There's a removable wrist wrest, and an added bonus of a USB and audio pass through, which means users can simply connect their chosen headset directly to the keyboard. There are also multimedia and RGB-specific buttons, with multiple profile presets support. There's also TT RGB Sync compatibility built into the keyboard.
