We have been watching PC screens get taller, particularly these of laptops, and now Lenovo is bringing that development to its ThinkVision line of small screens. Right this moment, it introduced the ThinkVision M14d, Lenovo’s first transportable monitor with a 16:10 side ratio.
Lenovo’s different transportable displays, in addition to most PC shows, use the 16:9 side ratio today. However extra prospects are embracing choices with extra vertical area, citing a nostalgia for screens of the previous and extra size to show lengthy articles, spreadsheets, and akin to marked enhancements. Lenovo is touting the show as the primary 14-inch, 16:10 transportable monitor, based mostly on analysis analyst Omdia performed in December.
However that does not imply you must keep dedicated to 16:10. Lenovo demoed the monitor’s 16:9 button to Ars Technica. It takes the display screen from 16:10 to 16:9, or vice versa, with one press.
It took about 3 seconds, which felt lengthy, however most individuals probably will not be altering it forwards and backwards steadily.
Lenovo is exhibiting numerous curiosity in 16:10 on the Cellular World Congress that began in Barcelona in the present day. Past the M14d, Lenovo is placing 16:10 screens in all of its ThinkPads, apart from the L-series, shifting ahead.
The M14d has an honest variety of pixels for its measurement, with 2240×1400 decision for a formidable pixel density of 188 pixels per inch. Coloration protection for the IPS panel is a claimed 100% sRGB.
Port-wise the M14d has two USB-C ports, together with energy passthrough at as much as 65 W, so it might energy much less energy-hungry laptops, like ultraportables. It is meant for portability itself, weighing 1.3 lbs and measuring 0.18 inches thick.
We noticed the M14d in individual briefly and had been completely satisfied to see that it carries the identical standout kickstand present in Lenovo’s different transportable displays, just like the ThinkVision M14. Whereas many transportable displays pressure you to fold a flimsy sleeve right into a makeshift stand, Lenovo’s transportable displays have an built-in twin kickstand and might tilt between -5 to 90 levels. Along with the bigger kickstand the place the ports are, there is a smaller kickstand straight beneath the monitor’s backside bezel that additionally offers the show a bit further peak.
Lenovo retains the transportable monitor stand and sleeve separate, as they need to be, and features a sleeve with the transportable monitor.
The M14d will launch in July for $300.
