Lenovo 17-inch ThinkBook Plus and ThinkPad Z series Renderings Exposure
Lenovo’s ThinkBook Plus is a special notebook category, it put an ink screen on the A-side, also left a deeper impression. According to renders released by Evan Blass, Lenovo’s next ThinkBook Plus could be even more special, with a 17-inch screen and a tablet tucked into it.
As you can see in the pictures, the 17-inch ThinkBook Plus has a pen-enabled color display next to the keyboard that users can use to draw or take handwritten notes without having to flip the notebook over to the A-side.
The laptop renders show use in a drawing scenario, where you can browse content like a tablet or use it as a digital screen with a stylus. In addition, it seems that Lenovo has developed widgets for this secondary screen that can hold application icons and supports a collection of application icons, which is not available in Win11’s Start menu.
It’s not clear what the parameters of this screen are, but the screen interface in the rendering suggests that the notebook may be positioned as a drawing book, with the screen below being used directly as a digital screen, with the control interface and the notebook’s screen not interfering with each other.
Another rendering of the A-side shows that it is equipped with two USB-C, two USB-A, an HDMI, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and Harman Kardon speakers.
In addition, Evan Blass also shared the appearance of another notebook, which is said to be the new Lenovo ThinkPad Z series. As you can see from the picture, there are 13-inch and 16-inch notebooks in gold and silver color schemes.
The ThinkPad Z13 is gold in appearance, the A-side seems to be made of plain leather, the interface doesn’t look like much, and the keyboard has ThinkPad’s signature little red dot. The ThinkPad Z16 is all silver, and the A-side does not have plain leather but seems to be the traditional brushed metal, and the interface is richer, with an SD card slot.
