Lenovo has introduced two new “first of their kind” monitors: The first port replicator monitor – the Lenovo L2230x wide — attaches to ultraportable laptops for greater convenience and productivity in the workspace. The ThinkVision L2321x wide, the first “duo” display monitor, combines two screens into one for multitasking and running legacy applications using a widescreen display.
The Lenovo L2230x Wide and ThinkVision L2321x Wide monitors let users do more with two-in-one capabilities. The L2230x Wide monitor makes connecting from a laptop simple and economical by combining a port replicator and 21.5-inch monitor into one device. For an 11-inch laptop, the monitor provides nearly 200 percent extra display space and an easier way to work.
The monitor connects to peripherals through USB and is the first to allow direct plug in of an Ethernet cable. The L2230x Wide provides a cost effective solution at just $259.99 compared with purchasing a port replicator and monitor separately.
Lenovo engineers developed a creative solution to give business customers the best of both worlds with the ThinkVision L2321x Wide monitor. The “duo” monitor features a dual display function so users can work in split screen mode: For example, with 2:1 mode users can view full screen PowerPoint slides on one part of the display and run other applications on the other. The “duo” inputs both VGA and DisplayPort video and comes with a vertical stand that can be height adjusted.
