86.9% Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Laptop Review: Unique E-Ink Display Meets Average Hardware | Notebookcheck
When it was first announced the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus caused a bit of a sensation. After all, laptops equipped with e-ink displays are certainly unique and special. We were thus very keen to find out how useful this feature really was. Too bad the rest of the Lenovo laptop behind the e-ink display wasn't anything to write home about.
Lenovo ThinkBook Plus review: Regular laptop with useful e-ink cover screen
Source: Business Standard English
At Rs 1,68,000, the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus is an expensive workbook with somewhat useful e-Ink display. In the ultra-notebook segment, the Asus ExpertBook B9 450F (review) offers a lot more at a smaller price, albeit without the secondary screen. The Dell XPS 13 is another capable notebook with excellent design and sleek performance. One might also consider the Mi Notebook 14 Horizon Edition (review), which costs almost a third but delivers a comprehensive package for its price.

69% Lenovo Thinkbook Plus Review – Innovation For A Better Tomorrow
Source: Pokde English
The Lenovo ThinkBook Plus is a pretty interesting productivity laptop. It’s not the best but I can see how this would serve people well. The e-ink display is useful, it’s easy to carry around, has USB-C PD charging, the keyboard is comfortable to use, the main display produces punchy colours, and the fingerprint scanner integration is clever.

80% Lenovo ThinkBook Plus review: It’s second e-Ink screen on the lid that won us over
Source: The Indian Express English
The ThinkBook Plus ushers in a new category of dual-screen notebooks. Putting a secondary screen on the lid of the ThinkBook Plus has its pros and cons – but I am glad that Lenovo is at least trying to be creative with notebook designs. Lenovo has to figure out how to make the e-Ink screen more productive for consumers like a senior marketing executive who is the target audience for ThinkBook Plus. If Lenovo manages to bring the Kindle app and Gmail support to the secondary e-Ink screen, it would make the ThinkBook Plus a compelling buy. Even without the e-Ink screen, the ThinkBook Plus is still a well-designed Windows 10 notebook with the premium build quality, exceptional keyboard and touchpad, and respectable performance.

Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Review
Source: Yugatech English
While the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus does achieve its goal of being a portable, all-around productivity device, it lacks an integrated graphics for boosting editing and rendering workloads. We also feel that the battery life could have lasted longer and added a garage slot for the Lenovo Precision Pen could have been a good choice. However, its dual displays maximize the user’s productivity. Its main display is also top-notch.

Lenovo ThinkBook Plus hands-on review: The ultimate multitasking laptop
Source: Laptop Mag English
Lenovo has never been a company afraid to incorporate seemingly wacky concepts in the name of consumer functionality. The company has taken what it’s learned from past laptops, refined it and created a dual-screen laptop that’s surprisingly affordable as well as useful. I’m excited to get my hands on the ThinkBook Plus once it comes out.

Lenovo ThinkBook Plus initial review: Dual-screen delight or dud?

Overall, then, the ThinkBook Plus is yet another interesting take on the changing landscape of laptops and computing. For the right audience, perhaps for those always in and out of meetings, it's actually a very functional machine.

Lenovo ThinkBook Plus 13 gets a secondary e-Ink display and pen support
Source: Ultrabook Review English
All in all, it won’t appeal to the same crowd as the previous generation, simply because it’s a much more expensive product with particularities that won’t be worth paying extra for the average user, which I’d reckon would prefer spending that kind of money for a more portable build, better features, and longer battery life.

100% Lenovo ThinkBook Plus review: Lifting the lid on productivity
Source: It Pro English
Even without the E-Ink display, the ThinkBook Plus would be a perfectly respectable mid-range ultraportable. It’s well made, extremely comfortable to type on, and offers decent horsepower without knackering battery life for it.

Lenovo ThinkBook Plus review – far away from ordinary
Source: Laptop Media English
One thing we didn’t really like is that it only has one USB Type-C port. Overall, the entire port selection is a bit modest (not as modest as the MacBooks, though), as it lacks an RJ-45 connector and an SD card reader, but what frustrates us the most is that the single USB Type-C port is used for charging. So, if you are charging your laptop, or ultimately want to get the maximum performance out of it, you can’t connect an external monitor or an eGPU.

Comment

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Comet Lake:

i7-10510U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.8 and 4.9 GHz (all 4 cores 4.3 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default).

i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.

1.4 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

1.406 kg:


81.13%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
