Lenovo’s ‘rollable’ laptop prototype is seriously cool, but I still wouldn’t buy one

By far one of the coolest laptops on show at MWC 2023 in Barcelona right now has to be Lenovo’s ‘rollable technology’ concept unit. As a helpful Lenovo rep informed me, it’s nowhere close to being a marketable product right now – and if I was the person in charge of this particular product, I’d quit while I was ahead.

For starters, I’m going to object to the terminology used here. While the display certainly can be ‘rolled’ to reduce its size, the idea of ​​a ‘rollable’ laptop immediately puts me – and, I would imagine, a lot of people – in mind of a whole device that can be rolled up to make it more compact when not in use. Imagine being able to roll one of the best laptops – or the best phones, since Lenovo also included a compact version of the display – into a nice thin tube to slip into a bag or pocket!
