Lenovo today announced the new Lenovo ThinkBook Plus laptop for Malaysian consumers. As you’ve probably noticed, what’s special about this laptop is that there’s a secondary e-ink screen on the front of the laptop. It even comes with a digital pen too.

The Lenovo ThinkBook Plus is powered by an Intel Core i5-10210U processor, paired with 8GB of DDR4 2666MHz RAM as well as a 512GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD. What’s special about the ThinkBook Plus is actually the secondary screen.
So, for its main display, there’s a 13.3-inch FHD IPS AntiGlare LED backlight panel. But on the external side of the laptop, there’s a 10.8-inch FHD AntiGlare E-ink Glass panel. Best of both worlds, must say. The e-ink screen also lets you use it as an e-reader or for annotating PDF documents.
The Lenovo ThinkBook Plus also comes with a digital pen that lets you take notes or sketch on the top display. For convenience, the pen can also attach to either side of the top cover magnetically. Not only will your content sync with OneNote, you can connect the ThinkBook Plus to an external monitor and use it as a sketchpad.
Connectivity wise, the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus is Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 6 ready. In terms of ports, there’s one USB Type-C port (supports DisplayPort and PD), two USB Type-A 3.0 ports (one is always on), a HDMI 1.4b port, as well as a 3.5mm audio combo jack.
Weighing just 1.4KG, the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus has a 4-cell Li-polymer battery onboard with support for 65W fast charging.
“The nature of today’s workplace demands productive multitasking and with the ThinkBook Plus, we are providing a solution that delivers business-grade performance coupled with a seamlessly integrated e-Ink display,” “Lenovo is committed to enabling employees to work their best by delivering smarter technology for all. With its secondary display with integrated pen, we are confident ThinkBook Plus not only boosts maximum efficiency but redefine productivity and multitasking for the modern workforce.”Varinderjit Singh, General Manager, Lenovo Malaysia,
That’s not all, the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus also has Harman Kardon speakers that supports Dolby Audio. There’s Amazon’s Alexa onboard, so you can use voice commands for your daily tasks.
