wr3zzz - Tuesday, September 29, 2020 - linkIt's 2.2lb. How is this superior to a 13" 2-in-1 or detachable?
binary visions - Tuesday, September 29, 2020 - linkIt folds up to 6"x9". That's the superior piece. You could argue whether that's relevant or useful or not, but there's no question about what the selling point is - you get a 13" laptop screen that folds up to half a laptop size.
wr3zzz - Tuesday, September 29, 2020 - linkOne can argue whether 6x9 is superior or not, personally I think it's still briefcase dimension which makes the comparison with flat 13" device pointless. But even if one agrees that 6x9 is personal device size as Sony tried to make that case years ago, 2.2lb is clearly not pocket carrying weight.
wr3zzz - Tuesday, September 29, 2020 - linkThe form fact says it's a reboot of the Sony Vaio P concept. However, even though Sony marketed the Vaio P as a personal device the ad where a Vaio P sticking up the back pocket of a jean was widely ridiculed. Most of the buyers of Vaio P used it as a predecessor to today's ultrabook, and it was only 1.2lb. Again the X1 Fold is 2.2lb!
edzieba - Tuesday, September 29, 2020 - linkI really like the Psion / Vaio P form-factor, but I don't £2500 like it.
cfenton - Friday, October 2, 2020 - linkIs that a physical keyboard that you overlay on the screen, or a very deceptively rendered on-screen keyboard?
