While most of the laptop makers are stomping at the specification race, Lenovo announces a notebook focusing at utility multitasking capabilities. Besides being a full-fledged laptop, the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus doubles as an eBook/PDF reader and a pen tablet to draw illustrations using the bundled stylus.

The new Lenovo ThinkBook Plus comes with a 13.3-inch Full HD display inside the laptop and 10.8-inch e-ink display on the cover. The additional e-ink display would let the users read books, take notes and create illustrations diagrams when the lid is closed.

For security reasons, the ThinkBook Plus comes to a fingerprint reader conveniently integrated into the power button, a camera shutter and dTPM 2.0 for enhanced hardware security.
