Most laptop manufacturers stick to a 16:9 aspect ratio, but we’ve pretty much seen some change that constantly. Then you usually try to make small adjustments, where the 16:10 aspect ratio for example is no surprise.
Now, at this year’s CES, Lenovo launched something we’ve never seen before.
Ultra Wide Screen Laptop
The company launched the ThinkBook Plus Gen 3 – the first laptop with a 21:10 aspect ratio and 17.3-inch screen. In addition to the ultra-high-resolution screen, you’ll also find a secondary screen to the right of the keyboard.
With the ThinkBook Plus Gen 3, we’re talking about an IPS panel, 2072 x 1440 resolution, 120Hz frame rate, and up to 400 nits of brightness.
Ideal for side-by-side applications
The secondary display is a touch-sensitive screen with a resolution of 800 x 1280 with an LCD screen that can be used in everything from a calculator and notepad to a calendar and displays for everything that is important to the user. The user in this setup is likely to be a business owner: Lenovo is targeting the target audience of small and medium-sized businesses that often have a variety of tasks that they have to deal with on a computer.
This is especially good with the chances of getting the software side by side, so that you don’t have to switch from one program to another all the time.
Specifications include Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 3 Windows 11 Pro, up to a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, up to 32GB LPDDR5 memory and a 2TB SSD.
The machine will cost from $1,399 when it launches in May.
