2020 might be the year of foldable Windows 10 laptops

Intel are suggesting PC vendors adopt foldable designs, it’s not clear what will happen

Intel has designed a foldable laptop and have displayed this proudly at 2020 CES.

“Horseshoe Bend,” as the codename goes, is a 17-inch 4:3 OLED tablet that folds in two to give you something roughly akin to a 13-inch laptop with a touchscreen replacing the keyboard and trackpad.

It runs on a new type of Intel chip called Tiger Lake, which allows for a slim 7mm fanless design and a claimed 11 hours of battery life.

It looks pretty cool and gives you twice the screensize of a regular laptop but can be folded so it takes up similar space to a conventional laptop.

Sam Byford at The Verge sums it up well in this video.

Horseshoe Bend is a reference design, meaning it’s an Intel-provided example of what PC manufacturers should be able to do with a given class of chip.

It remains to be seen if Microsoft will step up with Windows 10x , vendors will make similar designs and consumers will actually buy.

I do think this is really what the takeaway from CES 2020 was this year.

What do you all think about these designs?
