CES 2023: Lenovo displays beyond limits

Laptops with dual screens, one of which can be rotated? Lenovo had thought out of the box at CES 2023.

Lenovo is the world’s largest PC manufacturer, but it may still have a slightly boring image to contend with. And they did so emphatically at the CES 2023 trade show in Las Vegas. Alongside the expected powerful gaming machines, the Chinese brought, among other things, a digital notepad and a laptop with two OLED screens.

The Yoga series was expanded with several models. Including the all-in-one PC Yoga AIO 9i, the slim Yoga Slim 6i. And – for those who can’t get enough screen space, the Yoga Book 9i has two 13.3″ OLED displays.

In addition, the existing models in the Yoga series are of course updated with new processors from Intel and AMD.

Lenovo is also still making tablets. Here, Lenovo launched the 14-inch(!) and aptly named Lenovo Tab Extreme, which can be switched between serving as a laptop and tablet. And Lenovo Smart Paper, a digital notepad with handwriting recognition and space for more than 50,000 notes.

Lenovo had also thought outside the box on the business models. ThinkBook Plus Twist has two screens in one. The two screens are OLED and e-Ink respectively, but you can’t see them at the same time as they are mounted back-to-back. On the other hand, you can choose between the sides in a snap by rotating the screen around its axis.

We’re not quite sure what need Lenovo has met here – but it’s certainly original and eye-catching!

The ThinkBook range also has a new addition in the form of the ThinkBook 16p Gen 4, which has a “magic” docking space at the top of the screen for mounting upgrade parts. Such as a better webcam, LTE modem or video light. Only one of those at a time, though.

Gaming with AI chip

In connection with CES, Lenovo is also updating the Legion gaming series. This includes the world’s first dedicated AI chip, which should be able to optimise performance automatically during gameplay on the new Lenovo Legion Pro 7 and 7i as well as the Lenovo Legion Pro 5 and 5i. Many of Lenovo’s models come in two processor versions, so the “i” stands not for “injection” but for “Intel.”

Lightning fast and tough

SanDisk USB external storage can withstand more than most, and it's blazing fast.

Punches under its weight

The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon is one of the lightest laptops we've ever tested. Unfortunately, the slim form factor involves heavy compromises.

Why settle for just one screen on the laptop?

Laptops with dual screens, one of which can be rotated? Lenovo had thought out of the box at CES 2023.

Widescreen with 2 x 4K

At Las Vega, Samsung has shown super-wide computer screens with extremely high resolution and OLED.

Flattop laptop

Microsoft's top-of-the-line laptop is as big and flat as the deck of an aircraft carrier.

Ultrawide that doesn't cost a fortune

The huge ultra-wide screen from AOC is awesome! And also quite reasonable in price. But definitely not without limitations.
