At the CES 2020 show, Lenovo unveiled its foldable device, the ThinkPad X1 Fold, for $2,499. The product will be available in the middle of this year, initially with Windows 10 Pro, and will be available on Windows 10X when Microsoft is completed to enhance the experience.
The previous ThinkPad X1 Fold report was featured in the Windows 10 Pro version. Although it’s very impressive, it always feels like something’s missing, after all, Windows 10 Pro isn’t suitable for this type of device. But at CES’s Lenovo booth, the company also showed off models with Windows 10X systems.
Frankly, Windows 10X is not yet mature and needs further polish from Microsoft. To this end, lenovo’s booth, the Windows 10X-run demo DEMO demo demo was displayed with a screen, and at the urging ofmedia NeoWin, the experience was personally performed. The stand is running a custom version of the Windows 10X system, but it’s for dual-screen devices and isn’t optimized for collapsible screens.
Media NeoWin found the custom version of Windows 10X code-named “vanilla” (vanilla), which is about to land on Surface Neo. Frankly, this booth model doesn’t offer much to see.
NeoWin indicates that the device uses the new Start menu, but most applications are the same as the ones currently in use on Windows 10. You can start the Start menu by clicking the gray Windows icon, which will turn blue when you press it. You can also access it by swiping up from the bottom of the screen, similar to how Chrome OS works.
Of concern is the file manager. There are only two buttons to minimize and close the window in the display model, and Windows 10X does not support free adjustment windows. You can display it in full screen or split screen, that’s all.
Just as you can activate the Start Menu by swiping up, you can swipe in from the bottom right corner to activate the Action Center. As you’d expect from Microsoft’s history of touch-centric UI, sliding gestures are an important part of Windows 10X.
The settings menu UI is almost identical, although I don’t have much time to delve into it and see what different options are available. In terms of the hands-on experience, NeoWin says the Windows 10X version does flow a lot, and Lenovo staff say this is because Windows 10X is lighter than Windows 10.
On the About page, this version appears as Windows Core, or Windows Core OS. There is no specific model of the processor, but it is believed to be an Intel processor.
