Lenovo's Yoga Book 9i debuted at CES 2023 with the novelty of being the first full-sized OLED dual-screen laptop. Each of the laptop's screens is 13.3 inches, has a 16:10 ratio, and is powered by Dolby Vision. Its Intel 13th-gen Core i7-U15 processors can support 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 512GB of storage.
The screens can be used in tandem, one on top of the other, or side by side, depending on the user's needs. Unlike other foldable laptops, the Yoga Book 9i still feels like a laptop, not a tablet connected to a keyboard. The Yoga Book 9i can be connected to a Bluetooth keyboard if typing on a touchscreen gets too weird.
Lenovo brought a big "twist" to CES this year by announcing a new addition to its ThinkBook Plus series: the ThinkBook Plus Twist. This laptop's rotating display allows users to alternate between a clamshell or tablet position without compromising the display quality.
This laptop comes with 13th-gen Intel Core processors, a 13.3-inch OLED display, a 12-inch E Ink display, noise-canceling microphones, and improved wireless connectivity. Lenovo envisions the ThinkBook Plus Twist as ideal for traveling workers because of its versatile but powerful functionality.
Lenovo projects the ThinkBook Plus Twist to be available in June, priced at $1,649.
LG Gram Ultraslim
LG's Gram Ultraslim impressed our laptop enthusiasts with its ultra-thin and lightweight frame. This laptop only weighs about 2 pounds and is slightly thicker on one side to make room for ports, making it the lightest and thinnest laptop on the market.

Pricing for the Gram Ultraslim is unavailable at the time of writing this article, but it will be available overseas starting next month and in the US later this year.

Acer had an impressive lineup at CES this year, debuting a bold assembly of gaming laptops and monitors. We were impressed with Acer's Predator line for its propensity to challenge the status quo of gaming laptops.
In particular, the Acer Predator Helios 18 pleased laptop enthusiasts with its 18-inch, 16:10, OLED customizable display, 32GB of DDR 5 4800 RAM, and 2TB of storage. This laptop debuts with improved thermal technology, a 13th-gen Intel Core i9 or i7 HX processor, a backlit keyboard, and one free month of Xbox or PC Game Pass.
This laptop's 16-inch OLED screen can bring anything to life with "Spacial Vision" technology. The ProArt Studiobook is geared towards designers, animators, artists, and other creative professionals to help them see their creations from all angles, as the laptop can hinge at a 180-degree angle.
Powered by a 13th-gen Intel Core i9 13980HX processor, this laptop also comes with an Nvidia 4000 Series GPU, 64GB DDR5 RAM, and up to 8TB SSD.
For now, it's unknown when this laptop will hit the market and how much it will be.
