It's one thing to dream it.

And another to make that dream a reality.

To address the innovation required to produce a practical folding device, our engineers had to overcome mechanical, electrical, and structural challenges. The prototype only needed to show that the concept worked.

But to be a ThinkPad design, it needed to be driven by user experience while encompassing our legacy of durability.
