Lenovo has announced a new 17.3-inch ThinkBook Plus Gen 3 laptop. The main feature of the novelty is that the device uses an additional 8-inch touchscreen in addition to the main display, which is located next to the keyboard.
By using an additional screen, the design of the laptop looks very unusual. Unlike most laptops from other manufacturers that have experimented with second screens, Lenovo’s second display is not above the keyboard, but to the left of it. The touchscreen has a resolution of 1280 × 800 Pixel and supports working with a pen. It allows you to unload the main screen and view some of the service information, menus, toolbars and much more. As for the main screen, the laptop is equipped with a high quality matrix with an aspect ratio of 21:10, the details of which have not yet been disclosed.
ThinkBook Plus Gen 3 is equipped with Intel Alder Lake processors, up to 12 GB RAM, storage capacities up to 1 TB. The cost of the device starts at $ 1,399. The computer will go on sale in May.
In addition to the ThinkBook Plus Gen 3, the company presented the ThinkBook 14 Gen 4 Plus and the ThinkBook 16 Gen 4 Plus, which are equipped with 14- and 16-inch matrices. These laptops offer the same specs as the ThinkBook Plus Gen 3, but in a familiar form factor with no additional display. Another new model in the series was the ThinkBook 13X Gen 2, which received a 13-inch screen and wireless charging support. A charging mat is supplied with the computer.
The ThinkBook 13X Gen 2, ThinkBook 14 Plus Gen 3, and ThinkBook 16 Plus Gen 3 will launch in April at prices starting at $ 1,099, $ 839, and $ 859, respectively. All new items will run on Windows 11.
