Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkBook 14 G2 ITL 20VD008WGE

83.9% Lenovo ThinkBook 14 Gen 2 Tiger Lake review: Office laptop with poor endurance | Notebookcheck
Black laptops are out - at least in some segments. Lenovo tries to attract such customers in the business sector as well and offers an alternative to ThinkPads with the ThinkBook series. Apart from the design, the ThinkBook 14 Gen 2 doesn't differ that much from the ThinkPad E14 Gen 2.
Lenovo ThinkBook 14 Gen 2 review – one of the best business notebooks for the price
Source: Laptop Media English
Well, there you have it, the ThinkBook 14 Gen 2 is a viable product that happens to be one of the best 14-inch business laptops for its price. But before you rush to buy it, you have to learn a thing or two. First, there are two battery options – a smaller 45Wh unit (which we happen to have), and a beefier – 60Wh one. Since we got only 7 hours and 26 minutes of Web browsing and an hour less video playback, we would strongly recommend going for the larger one if your retailer provides it.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

In former time,s this weight was typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, often 15 inch laptops weigh as much.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.

76.95%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
