    Foldable, dual-screen laptops seemed like a mad scientist's dream just a few months ago... but after CES 2020, they may be right around the corner.

    Quick question:

    Why not just set a static focal length on Riley when he's talking? That way the camera isn't constantly going out of focus because of the moving background.

    Foldable displays need to die in a fucking fire. I will never buy a device like this. Never. Not once. Ever.

    This is really cool tech! Although it won't be healthy to look down on the screen the whole time. I would still use the lower side for the keyboard. And maybe a bit of it as a smart keyboard like that apple touch bar.

    Work more with the focus guys. Use the lock fuction or face recognition. It's really annoying when focus is changing during static shot.
    Anyway I like your news. Thanks.

    Has no one realized that touch screen typing is frustrating and often inaccurate. This is good for "pad" enthusiasts but that's just 1 market segment

    Just hoping a new breach from the egpu department,
    It has been introduced since like, what, 2015 or something? But it doesn't change shit since that day
    People seems only focuses more on mini pc, like why?
    Egpu is perfect for these new laptop technology that getting thinner and thinner and getting less and less powerful

    "the thinkpad is not a prototype"
    thats wrong, it should be: the thinkpad is not a concept, the dell is. concept and prototype are different things. Anyhow im totally getting the lenovo thinkpad x1 fold when it comes out.

    I do not know if this is just a fortunate turn of event for Microsoft/Windows or they have planned for this since the introduction of touch screen windows several years ago...
    If they have planned all of this, then it is an impressive chess-grand-master move...
    In either case, this is beautiful, finally some exciting new form factor for computing.

    So in about 10 years the Linux community might get a "folding laptop" that runs Linux without problems. Can't wait.

    That's not a folding laptop it's a folding tablet, advertising it as a folding computer is bull since folding computers have been around for a very long time. Typical tech companies making their product seem more important and better than they are. They do look interesting
