Lenovo launches several new laptops, including ThinkPad X1 Fold

After Lenovo showed off the X1 Fold earlier this year, the foldable is coming to the market

It’s a big day for Lenovo. The company announced a slew of new laptops and ThinkPad products, including its exiting new ThinkPad X1 Fold.

Lenovo teased the X1 Fold earlier this year, but now its foldable PC is available for pre-order. The company also announced accessories for it, including the Bluetooth ‘Mini Fold Keyboard’ that can be stored and wirelessly charged inside the system, the Lenovo ‘Mod Pen’ for note taking and the Lenovo ‘Easel Stand.’

The X1 Fold uses an Intel processor with the company’s ‘Hybrid’ technology and can be equipped with 5G support.

Lenovo says the X1 Fold will cost $3,369 in Canada and will be available for pre-order on the company’s website.

The company also announced another impressive addition to the ThinkPad X1 line with its new ‘Nano’ laptop. Unlike the X1 Fold, Nano is a traditional clamshell laptop. However, what sets Nano apart is it’s Lenovo’s lightest laptop ever coming in at just 1.99lbs (about 0.9kg).

The X1 Nano uses up to the 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor with Xe graphics and is based on Intel’s Evo platform. The Nano features up to 16GB of RAM and a 1TB PCIe SSD. It also boasts an “updated suite of AI and biometric ThinkShield security features,” which include voice recognition, human presence detection and a fingerprint sensor.

The X1 Nano sports a 13-inch 2160 x 1350 pixel resolution display with a 16:10 aspect ratio, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.

Lenovo says the X1 Nano will start at $1,889 in Canada and will be available starting in Q4 2020.
