Taking notes on the e-Ink display located on the ThinkBook Plus Gen 2's lid is now easier than it was with the previous model as Lenovo has improved performance with a better refresh rate. At the same time, the company has rethought and redesigned the device's e-Ink User Interface to provide more intuitive access to to frequently used information and productivity apps can now be run on the ThinkBook Plus Gen 2 without having to open the lid.
Stylish and refined
Lenovo also introduced its new compact ThinkBook 13x i which is available in either Storm Gray or Cloud Gray. The device is one of the slimmest 13-inch business laptops available at only 12.9mm thin and weighing less than 1.2kg.
Besides the e-Ink display, the ThinkBook 13x i shares all of the ThinkBook Plus Gen 2 i's features including Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos and Thunderbolt 4 ports. The laptop is powered by an 11th Gen Intel Core Processor and it also has Wi-Fi 6 and a 53-watt hour battery so that users can work from anywhere.
The ThinkBook 14p and 16p are powered by the latest AMD Ryzen 9 5000 H Series Mobile Processors for maximum performance. These laptops are ideal for video conferencing as they can be outfitted with an optional Full HD webcam protected by a ThinkShutter physical cover while an AI-based noise cancellation algorithm suppresses ambient noise.
Lenovo's ThinkBook 14p is a thin and light laptop that can be configured with up to a 14-inch 2.8k OLED display with VESA Display HDR True Black standard. Optional next generation Nvidia GeForce RTX discrete graphics are also available to complement AMD Ryzen processing power to deliver a high-performance laptop with a 16-inch 2560x1600 display.
