Lenovo is introducing a redesigned ThinkBook Plus Gen 3 at CES 2022. The new ThinkBook Plus Gen 3 now features 12th gen Alder Lake processors, an industry-first 21:10 17.3-inch ultra-wide 3K primary display, and an 8-inch secondary display that supports pen input. Together, these two displays can allow for multi-screen interaction with content that extends from one display to the other.

Lenovo has a few tricks up its sleeve to stand out distinct from the sea of laptop launches at CES 2022, and the ThinkBook Plus Gen 3. The third generation of the ThinkBook Plus improves upon some of the shortcomings of the previous iteration.

We were expecting a unique design with this year's ThinkBook Plus ever since a render of the device leaked some time ago. In Gen 3, Lenovo has ditched the e-ink display and has instead opted for a secondary touch screen. The device is only about 17.9 mm thick and weighs less than 2 kg.

Lenovo said that the panoramic 17.3-inch 3K ultra-wide panel with a 21:10 aspect ratio is an industry-first. The panel also has a 120 Hz refresh rate and can cover 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. The complementary 8-inch secondary display with an 800x1200 resolution also works as a Drawing board that supports an optional Color Pick stylus. This allows the user to use the primary display for the larger picture while adding fine details on the smaller one. The secondary display can also be customized to offer additional functionality such as a White Board function, widgets, note taking, and more.

The ThinkBook Plus Gen 3 can also mirror a Motorola smartphone's screen to minimize using the phone. Powering the laptop is a 12th gen Intel Core processor of which Lenovo hasn't confirmed any details yet. It is supported by 32 GB LPDDR5 RAM and up to 1 TB of PCIe Gen 4 SSD. Lenovo equips the ThinkBook Plus Gen 3 with a 69 Whr battery and all necessary ports including Thunderbolt 4.

The Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 3 will be available from May starting from US$1,399.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
