Lenovo’s new monitors bring thin bezels and plenty of pixels to pair with your favorite laptop
At this point, many of us are using our laptops to power our daily workstations, and what makes that possible is a good monitor and docking station. At CES 2018, alongside their latest collection of laptops, Lenovo has debuted two new monitors designed for use with a laptop, as well as a brand new docking station.
Lenovo ThinkVision X24
Designed to complement today’s modern laptops, the ThinkVision X24 monitor packs super thin bezels around all sides at just 1.1mm. The monitor itself is also very thin at just 4mm.
The FHD IPS panel is rated for a 96% sRGB color gamut, making it great for photo and video editing, and the HDMI and DisplayPort connections make connecting to any device easy.
This is quite obviously a pretty entry-level monitor, so it only packs a basic 60Hz refresh rate and a typical 16:9 aspect ratio. The 23.8″ size is also pretty middle-ground, hence the price point of just $249. The X24 will go on sale in January 2018.
Lenovo ThinkVision P32u
On the other end of the spectrum, Lenovo is also debuting the high-end ThinkVision P32u monitor. This 32″ monitor holds nothing back, offering UHD resolution, 99.5% AdobeRGB color accuracy, and a crazy number of ports on the back.
You’ll get two HDMI ports and a single DisplayPort, as well as USB and Thunderbolt 3 in, and Thunderbolt 3 out. There are also HDMI, DisplayPort, and Thunderbolt cables included with the monitor.
This monitor is certainly a workstation in itself, as USB-C powered laptops or those with a docking station could easily run their entire operation from this one spot. To that tune, it costs a fair bit, landing at $1,349. Lenovo will be putting this monitor up for sale starting in March of 2018.
Lenovo ThinkPad Ultra Docking Station
To round out Lenovo’s new laptop companions, there’s the new ThinkPad Ultra Docking Station. Designed to go along with Lenovo’s ThinkPad laptops, the Docking Station can accommodate 12-inch to 15-inch machines. Unfortunately, Lenovo hasn’t released much information as far as the ports this station comes with. We do know, however, that it will be priced starting at $199 for the 90W version, going up to $299 for the 135W model.
