Key notes

  • Lenovo has arrived at CES 2024 with Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 5 Hybrid.
  • It’s a Windows 11 and Android-powered laptop slash tablet that you can transform with ease.
  • The product will hit the online/offline stores in Q4 this year.

Lenovo has arrived at the CES 2024 event this week with something that’s not a familiar sight in the market: the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 5 Hybrid, a Windows 11 and Android-powered laptop slash tablet that you can transform with ease. 

The dream mashup consists of a Windows laptop deck that serves as its base and a 14-inch 2.8K OLED Android “tablet” as its display. Most 2-in-1 devices of this kind are Windows tablets with a detachable keyboard and no Android. 

It’s like getting the best of both worlds because you can detach the Android 13-powered tab from the keyboard pretty easily and use the Hybrid Station as a PC connected to an external display. 

The inside looks pretty solid. It gets an AI-powered Intel Core Ultra 7 processor and Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 for the tablet, a 32 GB LPDDR5X RAM, and an Intel Arc iGPU. The storage comes at 1 TB SSD (256 GB for the tablet). This whole thing can cost you around $2,000, and it will hit the shelves in Q2 this year. 

Elsewhere from CES 2024, HP unveiled two new Spectre x360 2-in-1 laptops: a 14-inch and a 16-inch model. Both pack powerful specs, starting with an Intel Core Ultra 5 125H processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 graphics card.
