Lenovo Releases Laptop With E-Ink Display Cover

Lenovo has released its new dual-screen ThinkBook Plus laptop, which features an e-ink screen display cover that the company bills as the first of its kind.

The ThinkBook Plus enables users to check essential notifications, read e-books, annotate PDFs, and sketch and take notes using the included digital pen while the laptop is closed, thanks to the 10.8-inch touchscreen on the lid.

According to Lenovo, its Modern Standby feature allows it to wake from sleep in less than half a second, and browse the web a second later; it also includes up to 10th-generation Intel Core processors with Optane for high performance.

The battery provides up to 10 hours of life, and rapid-charge functionality can charge it to 80 per cent in an hour. Additionally, for those working from home, the ThinkBook Plus features Skype hotkeys, Skype-certified microphones, and Harman Kardon speakers to enable clear communication during VoiP meetings.

The base model, starting at $1249, offers a 10th-generation 1.6GHz Core i5 processor, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 256GB SSD; these are upgraded to a 1.8GHz Core i7, 16GB RAM, and a 512GB SSD in the advanced $1479 model. Both are available from the Lenovo website.
