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.

85% Lenovo ThinkBook 14 Gen 2 review: A solid mainstream business laptop with AMD Ryzen
Source: Neowin English
Overall, the ThinkBook 14 just checks the right boxes. The performance is there, the keyboard is there, and the battery life is there. Indeed, the battery life is pretty great, and that's with the smaller battery installed in this unit. Overall, there's a ton of value here.

Lenovo's AMD Ryzen powered second generation Thinkbook offers a pretty good price to performance ratio - but you'll need to add a RAM stick first.

Comment

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.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Iris Xe G7 80EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 80 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

AMD Vega 7: Integrated graphics adapter of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 7 CUs (= 448 shaders) and a clock speed of up to 1,600 MHz.
