Lenovo ThinkBook 14 2-in-1 G4 IML review: New sleek look with Meteor Lake-U

Back to basics. The ThinkBook 14 2-in-1 G4 is a no-frills convertible spruced up with Intel's latest 14th gen Meteor Lake CPUs. It's comfortable, travel-friendly and easy to use, but graphics performance is a little slow relative to the $1200 asking price.

Lenovo ThinkBook 14 2-in-1 G4 IML

This year's ThinkBook 14 2-in-1 G4 replaces the older 2021 ThinkBook 14s Yoga with both new processor options and an updated chassis design. It shouldn't be confused with the ThinkBook 14 G4 clamshell which sports an entirely different design with dissimilar features.

Our test unit in review is the base configuration with the Core Ultra 5 125U Meteor Lake-U CPU, 16 GB of removable DDR5-5600 RAM, and a 14-inch 1200p IPS touchscreen for approximately $1200 USD. A higher-end configuration comes with the Core Ultra 7 155U and up to 32 GB of RAM instead, but the 1200p touchscreen and integrated graphics are fixed.

Alternatives to the ThinkBook 14 2-in-1 G4 include other general purpose 14-inch laptops like the Asus VivoBook Flip 14Acer Aspire 5 Spin 14, or HP Pavilion Plus 14. The model targets more budget-conscious consumers and hybrid teleworkers when compared to pricier flagship options like the HP Spectre x360 14, Asus ZenBook Flip 14, or Yoga 9 2-in-1 14.

Case — Semi-Professional, Semi-Consumer

Unlike the all-black and all-professional ThinkPad series, the ThinkBook series is silver and smoother in texture to appeal to both small businesses and home office users. The ThinkBook 14 2-in-1 G4 retains the metal alloy materials as the ThinkBook Plus Twist G4 or ThinkBook 16 G6 for a consistent look and feel. Nonetheless, the chassis is slightly more susceptible to twisting than a Yoga 9 model or HP Spectre model and so the ThinkBook is not as stiff.

The model is slightly larger and heavier than its 2021 predecessor due to the transition to 16:10. Even so, the system is still comparable to the competing Acer Aspire 5 Spin 14 in terms of weight and dimensions. Users will have to consider more expensive models like the Yoga 9 2-in-1 14IMH9 or Spectre x360 14 for options that are noticeably lighter and more portable.

Sharp edges, flat sides, and rounded corners have become a hallmark of the ThinkBook design

Connectivity — Complete With Thunderbolt Support

All ports from the 2021 model have returned for this latest iteration albeit rearranged. The Lenovo OneKey Recovery button, for example, is now on the bottom instead of the left edge. We also appreciate that the ports are well-spaced whereas they are tighter and more crowded on the VivoBook Flip 14 or Aspire 5 Spin 14.

Accessories And Warranty

An active stylus pen (WE03 MI4081) is included in the retail box. This time, however, the pen attaches to the laptop magnetically along the side whereas the pen was integrated onto the older 2021 design via a special pen garage. Not only is the newer approach less secure, but the new pen isn't even much larger than the older version and so it's not any more comfortable to grip.

The standard one-year limited manufacturer warranty applies when purchased in the US.

Input Devices — Comfortable Keyboard And Clickpad

Keyboard

The layout of the spill-resistant keyboard has been revised when compared to the 2021 ThinkBook 14s Yoga. The arrow keys and first row of Function keys in particular are now larger and less cramped while the space between the QWERTY keys has been reduced in favor of slightly larger keycaps.

Feedback when typing feels uniform between each key with both adequate resistance and clatter similar to an IdeaPad. However, we still find the keyboards on a ThinkPad or HP Envy and Spectre series to be firmer and thus more satisfying to type on.

Touchpad

The clickpad on the Lenovo is larger than the one on the Aspire 5 Spin 14 (12 x 7.5 vs. 10.5 x 6.5 cm) for easier multi-touch inputs. Feedback when pushing down to input clicks is firmer and louder than on most other utlra-thin laptops for a more satisfying feel.

Display — Excellent Colors, But Average Overall

The ThinkBook 14 2-in-1 G4 utilizes an updated version of the panel found on the IdeaPad Flex 5 14. Gamut now encompass the full sRGB standard compared to only 45% NTSC or 60% sRGB on the Aspire 5 Spin 14 or VivoBook Flip 14. Colors are noticeably deeper and more vivid as a direct result.

Everything else about the display is typical of a standard IPS panel including the 60 Hz refresh rate and average response times and contrast ratio. You'll have to spend more on models with OLED for deeper colors and better HDR support.

The display does not come pre-calibrated with color temperature in particular being too warm. Calibrating the panel with our X-Rite colorimeter addresses this shortcoming to bring average grayscale and color deltaE values down to just 0.9 and 0.47, respectively. We recommend applying our calibrated ICM profile above to make the most out of the display and its full sRGB colors.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
18 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 8.9 ms rise

This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.5 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17673 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is relatively poor due to both the limited brightness and glossy display leading to excessive glare even when under shade. The 2-in-1 form factor is therefore more suited for indoor multimedia consumption rather than outdoor applications. Upgrading to the Yoga 9 2-in-1 14 and its brighter OLED display helps to reduce glare to a degree.

Processor

The Core Ultra 5 125U performs within single-digit percentage points of last year's Core i5-1335U. Thus, raw performance hasn't significantly improved year-over-year. The main differentiating factor between the Core Ultra 5 125U and older generation CPUs is therefore the new integrated NPU for local AI acceleration. However, the NPU has limited applications at the moment until Windows can integrate more AI features in the near future.

Upgrading to the Core Ultra 7 155U configuration will improve performance by just 5 to 10 percent based on our time with the recent Yoga 9 2-in-1 14.

Performance sustainability is not perfect which is to be expected from a U-series design. When running CineBench R15 xT in a loop, performance would dip by almost 20 percent after just two cycles to suggest limited Turbo Boost performance over extended periods of stress.

Stress Test

Average CPU clock rate, temperature, and package power draw when initiating Prime95 would spike to 3.2 GHz, 100 C, and 49 W, respectively, lasting for about 15 seconds before quickly falling and stabilizing at 1.7 GHz, 73 C, and 25 W. Turbo Boost is thus unsustainable for long periods as suggested by our CineBench results above.

GPU clock rate and temperature when running Witcher 3 would stabilize at 1850 MHz and 68 C, respectively, compared to 2250 MHz and 80 C on the more expensive Yoga Slim 7 14 G9 with faster Arc 8 graphics.

System Performance

PCMark results are ahead of the older ThinkBook 14s Yoga owing to the multi-generational gap between the processors. Note that our AIDA64 results are much slower than most other laptops since our configuration comes with just a single DDR5 module; two can be installed at checkout or by the end-user. A dual-channel setup would likely improve PCMark scores further.

We experienced wake-from-sleep issues on multiple occasions where our unit would freeze on a blank screen thus requiring a hard reboot. We're unsure of the cause or if it's a widespread issue, but it's nonetheless worth noting.

Storage Devices

Our test unit ships with the 512 GB SK Hynix HFS512GEJ4X112N NVMe SSD which is a midrange PCIe4 x4 drive with theoretical maximum read and write rates of 5000 and 4700 MB/s, respectively. The drive is only 42 mm in length, but 80 mm drives are still supported. Unfortunately, smaller drives have a tendency to throttle including the SK Hynix in our Lenovo as shown by our graph below. The maximum ~5000 MB/s read rate would only last for about a minute before falling to the 3000 MB/s range.
