    It's strange, but I've been using a folding laptop for years....

    I'm wondering if it uses the same tech for folding as the Samsung Galaxy Fold. That kinda didn't end well.

    Re: Lenovo previews the "World's First Foldable PC"

    Why didn't they add a stand of some sort so it can be fully open to use with a separate keyboard/mouse? Working through a fold in a screen has got to be a royal pain... But... first to market.

    It ought to, given the space in which to squeeze two large batteries.....

    Watching that video, I even think I can see a crease down the screen that Blokie there is holding!
    TBH, I'm just bored and chatting cack while doing some file uploads. I lost all genuine interest in the product when I saw the marketing hype phrase "World's First....."

    Please!

    I'm still waiting for the 8110 to finally get whatsapp over here without having to hack about with it - the good lady just can't stand touchscreen phones.
    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.
