A New Spin on Hybrid Computing

Since its inception in 2020, ThinkBook Plus has become a synonym for unique and innovative SMB devices including ThinkBook Plus Gen 2 with e-Ink display and Gen 3 with a secondary 8-inch display beside the keyboard. Lenovo has a long history of innovation with twist form factors dating back to 2005 with the ThinkPad™ X41 tablet and later the ThinkPad Twist from 2012. The new ThinkBook Plus Twist reinvents the category by integrating an innovative rotating dual display that offers multimode versatility while enhancing the user experience in multiple areas that has created a unique laptop for a new generation.

While maintaining the core attributes of ThinkBook Plus Gen 2, Lenovo’s design and engineering teams listened to customer feedback and user insights to implement numerous improvements and innovations for ThinkBook Plus Twist:

  • Latest 13th Gen Intel Core processors
  • New narrow-bezel 13.3-inch 2.8K OLED display with touch glass and twist hinge
  • New front-lit colorful 12-inch e-Ink display on top cover with improved 12Hz refresh rate and touch glass
  • Intel Wi-Fi 6E1 improves wireless connectivity performance and stability on supported networks
  • Full size pen support on OLED and e-Ink displays with up to 18 months battery life

ThinkBook Plus Twist can be highly versatile with multiple modes that can be configured into clamshell format or tablet format, both of which can prioritize either the OLED display or the colorful e-Ink display thanks to the unique twist hinge.
