Beyond a refresh of some models, Lenovo’s CES 2022 ThinkBook has added a second screen to improve productivity.

We like the saying, “Go big or go home” and the ThinkBook Plus Gen 3 delivers on all counts. Laptops with dual screens aren’t new these days, and according to the company, the ThinkBook Plus Gen 3 is Lenovo’s first 17.3-inch laptop with a built-in secondary 8-inch (800 x 1200) full-colour LCD display.

Part of the reason for the larger screen size of the laptop is to accommodate the secondary display as its placed on the side rather than the middle like that of the ASUS ZenBook 14.

The laptop is powered by the 12th generation Intel Core H-Series processors and packs up to 32GB of LPDDR5 and SSDs up to 2TB of storage. It has a resolution of 3072 x 1440 pixels at 120Hz, up to 400 nits of brightness. To round out the package, the ThinkBook Plus Gen 3 includes a Dolby Atmos Speaker System from Harman Kardon.

Co-engineered with Intel to meet the requirements of an Intel Evo laptop, the Lenovo ThinkBook 13 Gen 2 is a 13.3-inch laptop, weighing just 1.21kg, and just 12.9mm thick. It comes powered by a 12th generation Intel Core U-Series processor and a 56Whr battery.

Both the ThinkBook 14 and 16 Gen 4 are slimmer than their previous models and have a larger FHD+ display with a 16:10 aspect ratio.

Display options include a 90Hz 2880 x 1800 14-inch and a 120Hz 2560 x 1600 16-inch screens with hardware colour calibration and 300 nits of brightness. Both can be powered by optional NVIDIA RTX graphics.

They feature a larger Touchpad with a glass surface that adds to the interactive experience and Dolby Atmos Speaker. Other options available help with security and collaboration.
