As history keeps repeating itself, even if OEMs have great ideas, software companies’ development progress is always untimely. Recently, Digitimes noted in a report that Intel’s lack of supply for Microsoft’s Windows 10 X operating system and its lack of supply makes it difficult for Intel to present the latest collapsible laptop design spending on the upcoming CES 2020.

To revive the laptop market, Intel has been looking to woo OEMs to create new folding-screen PCs. However, we may not be able to see the prototype device at CES 2020 due to the hardware and software partners.
Media point out that lenovo has been flaunting its new folding-screen concept laptop design since 2017. But with a combination of factors, Intel is unlikely to be aggressive lying around until mid-2020.
Intel has been blowing for Tiger Rapids prototypes since June 2018. It was originally scheduled to hit the market in 2019, but it was delayed by Microsoft’s Windows 10 X software development project.
There are growing signs that Microsoft has failed to advance the development of Windows Core OS as expected, with rumors that desktops, Surface Hub 2 and IoT Shell have all been hacked.
Looking back, the software giant may have to go through more than 1 to 2 attempts before delivering stable and mature products.
