Lenovo ThinkBook Plus (2023) Review
Source: USA Today English EN→zh-CN
We really wanted to like the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus. We have some big E-ink fans on our tiny tech team who believe there is a big enough (niche) market for a 2-in-1 laptop like this one. But the E-ink notetaking tablets already out there set the bar higher than this laptop could reach. Even Lenovo’s own Smart Paper, which is not sold in the US, is a better E-ink device for notetaking and reading because it keeps things simple with a streamlined operating system built specifically for a few simple tasks. Comparatively, the ReMarkable 2 provides the closest likeness we’ve experienced to writing with a real pencil or pen on real paper; the E-ink side of the ThinkBook Plus feels a little less slippery than taking notes on its OLED side, but we couldn’t feel the texture of the E-ink display’s surface while writing with a Lenovo stylus. The handwriting latency isn’t synced with the actual speed of writing, either, which defeats the whole point of handwriting on any digital device.

60% Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 4 Review: Marred by E-ink
Source: Make Use Of English EN→zh-CN
Unless you're in desperate need of a 2-in-1 laptop that features both an OLED display and a color e-ink screen, I can't recommend the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 4. The $3,000+ price point is simply too high to justify the myriad of downsides in several important aspects of the laptop. You're better off sacrificing the unsavory e-ink panel and saving some serious dough by opting for another 2-in-1 like the Microsoft Surface Pro 9 or Lenovo's own Yoga 9i. While the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 4 2-in-1 laptop has some redeeming qualities, it ultimately falls short in delivering features to match the $3,000 price point. Enjoy the main OLED display; avoid the e-ink panel at all costs.

60% Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 4 Review

We really wanted to like the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 4. The mix of OLED and E Ink, pen input, and pivoting 2-in-1 design sounds like a step forward for laptop productivity. But the practice is less captivating than the concept—even awkward and inconvenient. The E Ink screen lurches wildly between eye-friendly reading and laggy ghosting, making it nigh unusable for many tasks, and the basic laptop design and performance are satisfying but trail some rivals in both performance and battery life. Lenovo sells a high-quality OLED-based convertible in the Yoga 9i Gen 8, which gives you the same pen-friendly drawing and note-taking capability without the fancy E Ink lid. It even manages to squeeze another USB-C port and a USB-A connector into its slim chassis. If you want a top-tier 2-in-1 laptop, get the Yoga. If you want a note-friendly E Ink display, get an Amazon Kindle Scribe. Heck, get both, and you'll probably be happier than you would be with the Plus.

I really wanted to like the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 4. After all, it’s not every day I come across a 2-in-1 with a built-in color E Ink display and twistable hinge. As the best smartphones have proven, having a device that serves multiple functions is advantageous. But while the idea behind this ThinkBook Plus sounds great on paper, the reality doesn’t live up to the promise — especially for a device that costs $3,000. If you’re looking for alternatives, you can’t go wrong with either the $1,049 Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 or $1,899 Samsung Galaxy Book 3 Pro 360. The latter isn’t exactly cheap, but it’s still more affordable than the ThinkBook Plus. If you need an e-reader, you can even purchase a Kindle Paperwhite ($139) or a Kindle Scribe ($339) with the money you save, and still come out having spent less than you would have on a new ThinkBook Plus Gen 4. Though I can’t recommend this remarkable 2-in-1 to most people, it’s still an intriguing product that could pave the way for similar (and less expensive) devices in the future.

70% Lenovo ThinkBook Plus G4 review: Great in theory, poor in execution
Source: Laptop Mag English EN→zh-CN
The Lenovo ThinkBook Plus G4 is great in concept, but falters in execution. You’d think that the design would be the problem, but it’s not — it’s the performance. And for $3K, I expect both panels to feel silky smooth when I use them. If you can move to a more normal 2-in-1 laptop, we highly recommend the Dell Inspiron 16 2-in-1 (7620), which offers double the battery life at half the price. Overall, the ThinkBook Plus G4 is a solid laptop, but between its price and sluggish e-ink display, it’s hard to recommend to people who want to draw professionally on e-ink.

Lenovo's new ThinkBook Plus is the most interesting 2-in-1 laptop I've used all year
Source: Zdnet.com English EN→zh-CN
If you're a creative professional, I highly recommend the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 4. It's a delight to use, even as someone who isn't a professional artist. I thoroughly enjoyed writing on the e-ink side; It saved me from dealing with eye strain, which can be a killer after a long day of typing. The notebook is available in two separate models, and prices differ depending on which hardware you choose. My review unit had a 13th Gen Intel i7-1355U processor, an Intel Iris Xe GPU, 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM, and 512GB of storage, totaling up to a $3,040 price tag. Yes, these are expensive laptops, and I wouldn't fault you for opting for a less expensive but just as capable laptop. But the ThinkBook Plus Gen 4 is one of the most refreshing devices money can buy right now, and it's worth every penny.
