E-mail Print PDF

The Lenovo Transform 2017 event was mainly focused on enterprise, but it did have the company reveal what it think is the future of personal computer-- a bendable laptop with a flexible display.

Lenovo bendyDescribed as the "ThinkPad of the future," the concept laptop would be built using unspecified "advanced materials" and "new screen technologies." These would allow for a device one can roll up or fold, without need for a hinge. The presentation also had Lenovo SMP and GM Christian Teismann state how it can be an always-connected device able to handle natural speech and handwriting, with anticipator AI as a major feature.

Interestingly the concept design even includes that ThinkPad trademark stuck in the keyboard, the orange mouse nub.

Another promise from the company involves a "special anniversary edition" laptop just in time for the 25th anniversary of the ThinkPad brand. No details are available, but Lenovo says it will combine the best features of past ThinkPads with the best in current technologies.
