The Lenovo ThinkBook Plus has a 10.8in E Ink display. The idea is that it acts as a secondary screen for - well, we'll get into that. The main display is a 13.3in affair using IPS technology. Bright enough, at 300cd/m2, with good colour accuracy and a matte finish.

The ThinkBook Plus combines the featherweight portability of the ThinkBook line with the note-taking functionality of the YogaBook. The base configuration will start at $1,199 and feature a yet-to-be-named Intel 10th Gen Core i7 processor. The laptop weighs 3.1 pounds and measures 12.1 x 8.5 x 0.7-inches.

Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The ThinkBook Plus comes with two displays, a traditional 13.3-inch display with FHD LCD IPS panel on the inside and another 10.8-inch monochrome e-ink display on the outside of the display lid. It emulates and looks strikingly similar to real paper, much more so than traditional LCD or OLED displays, and its power consumption is significantly lower to boot. Despite its modern and up-to-date Intel Wireless AX201 Wi-Fi card the Thinkbook Plus's Wi- Fi transfer rates were comparatively low.

Lenovo's ThinkBook Plus has a 10.8-inch e-ink display on the lid. You can use it for summoning Alexa, taking notes with the included pen, reading PDFs. It's not as ambitious as the new dual-screen ThinkPad X1 Fold, but I can see the appeal.
