MacBook Pro with Magic Keyboard could be the promised 13-inch model

Apple is equally famous and notorious for its obsession with design and, in particular, making things as slim as possible. Sometimes that has breathtaking results but there are other times when it becomes an infuriating experience. One of the most recent cases, which has actually resulted in a lawsuit, is Apple's reviled butterfly keyboard switches.

Intel Horseshoe Bend prototype turns a 17-inch tablet into a 13-inch laptop

Contrary to earlier whispers, Intel wasn't shying away from foldable PCs because it found Windows 10X to still be unsuitable for the public's eyes. It did skip mentioning Microsoft's future Windows version but the CES 2020 crowd might not yet care about that, at least for now. They may be more interested in seeing foldable devices and Intel definitely had some to show, including its own take on a gigantic OLED screen that folds down into a more manageable laptop size.
