Lenovo announced its ThinkVision P34w-20 and ThinkPad Thunderbolt 4 Workstation Dock today. Both are aimed at professionals and creators.

The ThinkVision P34w-20 is a 34-inch ultra-wide curved monitor with a 3800R curvature. It delivers 99% sRGB and delta E<2 color calibration. Its display has a resolution of 3440 x 1440 and has a 21:9 aspect ratio. The P34w-20 also has Natural Low Blue Light technology to protect your eyes.

The monitor supports Picture-in-Picture as well as Picture-by-Picture, which allows you to use multiple sources at once.

The P34w-20 has a single-cable solution that makes it work similar to a docking station. It supports power, data, video, and ethernet through a USB-C port. That same port also has up to 100W of charging power.

The monitor and dock work with a wide range of PCs, including the newly announced ThinkPad P1, ThinkPad P15, and ThinkPad P17.
