It’s been a few years since Lenovo launched the ThinkVision M14t portable touchscreen monitor with support for touch and pen input. Now the company has announced a second-gen model is coming this summer.

For the most part the new ThinkVision M14t Gen 2 looks a lot like the original. It’s still a portable 14 inch display that can be positioned for use in portrait or landscape orientation for comfortable viewing, writing, or drawing. But the new model brings some display improvements.

First, instead of a 1080p display, the new model has a slightly higher resolution 2240 x 1400 pixel screen, which means that the aspect ratio has also changed from 16:9 to 16:10.

Second, the contrast ratio has improved from 700:1 to 1500:1. And third, instead of 72% NTSC color gamut, the new model supports 100% sRGB color gamut.

The new aspect ratio also allowed Lenovo to reduce the physical size of the display a little bit. It still has an L-shaped design with a bottom section that acts as both a stand and as the place where you’ll find the monitor’s dual USB-C ports.

And thanks to built-in sensors, you can tilt the screen 90 degrees and use it in portrait mode without the need to manually adjust the display orientation in your operating system.

One other difference is the price. The Lenovo ThinkVision M14t Gen 1 sold for $449 at launch, while the 2nd-gen model will sell for $399 when it hits the street in July, 2024.

That price cut would be more attractive if it weren’t for the fact that, you know, time has passed. You can currently buy the original M14t for $279.

    1. Unless you’ve got some kind of inferiority complex, you really don’t need 4k resolution on a screen that small. But there would still be noticeable improvements at 2560×1600 and 120hz, although higher frame rates are less important on a portable monitor since any device you connect it to is probably going to have a built in screen and it’s that screen you’ll want to be using for playing games. But it’s not like having smoother cursor movement, scrolling, and window dragging won’t leave people with a better impression of you, not that most of them could properly explain why if someone asked them later.
