Lenovo showcases new concept for a roll-able ThinkPad laptop at Transform NYC event

At the latest Transform NYC event 2017, Lenovo, a leading name in the world of computers and also to a large extent, smartphones, unveiled what some might believe to be a revolutionary concept called as the rollable ThinkPad. It's safe to assume it caught the eyes of many who were viewing the two-and-half hour live stream.

The ThinkPad flexible or ThinkPad roll-able can be assumed to be the harbinger for the future of laptop technology. The flexible laptop uses the Lenovo keyboard and has an enlarged bendable screen which does away with the hinges that attach the screen and keyboard. The design may even be in such a way that the laptop can be folded up like a piece of paper.

This concept PC would definitely use "advanced materials" and "new screen technologies," according to what Lenovo said at the event. However, the design does raise a few questions, such as the lack of any visible USB ports. The device is presumably going to accept commands via voice-services like Cortana. For now, however, the flexible ThinkPad is only a concept and it will largely be dependent on display technology and the ability to manufacture these flexible components.

Apart from this, Lenovo also unveiled the miniature ThinkStation P320 Tiny. It may be tiny, but the processing power on offer is on another level. The newest addition by Lenovo sports a Core i7-7700 processor and an NVIDIA Quadro P600 GPU along with up to 32 GB of DDR4-2400 RAM , 2 TB of maximum storage (by way of two M.2 SSD slots) and six USB 3.0 ports. The tiny weighs at around 1.3 kg which is the same as that of the MacBook Air.
