Lenovo at CES 2020 returns to, wait for it........................ 4:3 !!!!!!!!!!!!!

#1 Post by RealBlackStuff » Tue Jan 07, 2020 2:17 am

Back to the old days of 4:3 screens, the X1 Fold:

Just wondering how many people will be crazy enough to buy such an expensive odd-ball with only 8GB RAM, costing $2,500.-

Make a case to keep it folded open, put it on some laptop hinges, add a T420 keyboard to the case and your done.
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

Looks good, but idk how not using a touchscreen windows keyboard would be like...

I don't think I've ever used my PixelBook as a keyboard when I am in tablet mode, I guess I could start there and consider the X1 Fold from there.
