The 4 Best Computing Products We Saw at CES 2020
Not only did we see the first notebook using a foldable screen in its official form, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold, but we also saw the first-ever consumer 5G notebook also from Lenovo.
These two innovations alone will set the platform for 2020 in terms of the new features and technology we could expect to see out of a number of other product makers this year. For example, Dell itself showed off samples to get a foldable notebook display, though Microsoft is already expected to release its very own dual-screened devices by holiday 2020.
We also saw incredibly exciting stuff from Dell, particularly its next-level Dell XPS 13 laptop and its own theory for a mobile PC gaming device much like the Nintendo Change, the Concept UFO. The latter has the potential to be one of the most exciting developments in gaming because, well, the Switch.
Finally, we saw much more improvements in PC gaming with the Acer Predator Thronos Air gaming chair rig, which will be the bit of PC gamer gear for the 1% this year, and the Razer Tomahawk gambling PC case, the first of its kind to accept modular components made by Intel.
If it comes to calculating, CES 2020 continues to be an excellent year chock-full of realized potential and years-long thoughts coming to fruition at last.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold Laptop With a Foldable Display:
It’s a future-forward apparatus that will actually be available this year. Lenovo has made good on the promise that it made back in May 2019: Lenovo will launch the first-ever notebook with a foldable display, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Twist in 2020. The refined, market-ready variant of the product we saw previously — with literal aid tape onto it does wonders to market the notion of an interesting new experience using a big, sharp touchscreen.
Magazines could look amazing on this apparatus, and with the bundled Bluetooth keyboard, folks could work on such a record while watching the latest episode of “The Witcher” on Netflix above. These are quaint hypotheticals, but the idea of folding screens is simply too intriguing to not get excited about.
The 2,499.00 asking price seriously limits the marketplace for this first foldable Windows laptop to well-to-do executives and tech enthusiasts — and perhaps a few creatives despite this buttoned-up ThinkPad branding. No matter the ThinkPad X1 Twist captures the revolutionary and innovative spirit of CES in something you can actually buy in 2020.
Dell XPS 13 laptop:
Dell’s flagship notebook gets even better in CES 2020 having an updated frame design comprising a larger screen and improved keyboard.
Not content with the processor bump made late in 2019 because of its XPS 13 lineup, Dell has taken the XPS 13 laptop layout and refined it even further, raising the display size within a similarly-sized framework and extending the computer keyboard. Starting at $999.99 and accessible today, the notebook comes with the latest Intel processors and other high-end hardware indoors.
The most notable changes start with a 13.4-inch display that is bigger, thanks to smaller base bezels and its own ultra-thin bezels throughout. Then all appreciate the keyboard size growth, as relaxation is always king.
It may not be the flashiest laptop of this series, but the brand-new Dell XPS 13 is very likely to be another incredible flagship laptop across pretty much every area and use instance. The welcome layout tweaks alone are enough for it to be worthy of a call-out.
Lenovo Yoga 5G laptop:
The first-ever consumer laptop with 5G connectivity debuted at CES 2020, giving us a good reason to be excited for a Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered Windows laptop in the last.
Does Lenovo have the world’s first notebook with a foldable display, it also has the very first consumer laptop with 5G mobile connectivity in 2020. Due out this spring for a $1,499.00 starting cost, this will probably be the first ARM processor-based Windows notebook worth purchasing.
The ultimate accessory for PC gamers with an unlimited budget, Acer will release its own Predator Thronos Air gaming chair this March for $13,999.99 — and it’s the coolest thing in PC gaming later, well, RGB lighting and gaming seats.
This is not a brand-new product to CES 2020; however, it is the first time it’s being shown at the US before a retail debut after this March for a cool $13,999.99. Nope, that is not a typo.
Trust it or not, this chair is really half as expensive as the original model. The gadget is a gaming seat rigged inside of a pod mounted using three 27-inch, curved paths, which you, sadly, provide yourself along with the gambling PC powering the whole thing.
