Lenovo is planning big for 2017, with a lot of updates and new products coming your way if you are planning to get yourself a Lenovo ThinkPad (or a ThinkVision for that matter). Very recently, Lenovo announced that a series of changes will be applied to its ThinkPad laptop line. Aside from that, there are also new port docks coming from the manufacturer as well as ThinkVision displays. Let’s get into these goodies and see what we can expect in the near future.
The new ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 docks will be released to the general public as early as February 2017 for around $280. These babies can handle as much as 40Gpbs transfer sppeds, with the full duplex compatible unit featuring two 1.2 stream DisplayPorts with 60Hz capability. In terms of connectivity, you’ll have an HDMI, USB 3.0, Ethernet, Jack port and VGA ports available. Of course, the star of the show will be the USB C Thunderbolt 3 port.
Moving on to the new displays, users will be able to get the ThinkVision P24h or P27h models which differ in size. The former is the smaller unit that measures 23.8 inches while the latter measures a full 27 inches. Aside from screen dimensions, the two screens are pretty similar with both showcasing a QHD 2560×1440 resolution and several features such as HDMI, USB 3.0 and USB C ports. DisplayPort and 90-degree pivoting round out the list and promise a great purchase in the form of either display.
While the docks are made available in the second month of 2017, users will have to wait until March to get their hands on the $330 displays. We will most likely get more information on what’s to come as we approach their release date.
