“…but the deeper software integration from the foldable display just isn’t ready yet.”
Lenovo let Chaim Gartenberg at The Verge get his hands on their new foldable PC.
For me, it all boils down to this quote from Chaim:
Unfortunately there’s just not a lot we can show off here. There is a functional (!) version of Windows running on this hardware, but the deeper software integration from the foldable display just isn’t ready yet.
It’s important to experiment with new form factors for devices, but when you’re bringing a product to market, it’s much more important to have your use cases figured out and your software ready and working.
This reeks of trendy novelty and a complete lack of deep thinking. Lenovo appears to be riding the foldable wave started by Samsung back in February.
What’s the use case for a folding laptop?
Would I buy this to replace a tablet or a traditional laptop?
Where’s the benefit in saying “me first!” with a piece of shit?
