Lenovo has launched a barrage of notebooks powered by Intel's 11th-generation Tiger Lake CPUs. The Lenovo ThinkBook 14 Gen 2 comes in a wide range of configurations. There are some AMD variants too for Team Red enthusiasts. It will retail at US$569 for the Intel model and US$549 for the AMD variant. The notebooks will be available for purchase in October 2020.

The Lenovo ThinkBook 14 Gen 2 comes with a 14' FHD screen. It can be configured with a regular IPS and TN panel. Users looking to do color-sensitive work can also upgrade the IPS panel to cover 100% of the sRGB spectrum. An Intel Iris Xe GPU powers the display, which can be upgraded to an Nvidia GeForce MX450 if needed. Lastly, the notebook's camera comes with a shutter too.

As mentioned earlier, the Lenovo ThinkBook 14 Gen 2 can be configured with Intel and AMD CPUs. Lenovo will tell us more about the exact CPU models at a later date. It is possible to customize the notebook with up to 40GB of DDR4 memory, coupled with a 1TB NVMe SSD and a 2TB 5400 rpm mechanical hard drive. Depending on the model, the Lenovo ThinkBook 14 Gen 2 comes with either a 45Wh or 60Wh battery that can provide up to six and eight hours of backup, respectively.

Input options on the Lenovo ThinkBook 14 Gen 2 include a Thunderbolt 4.0 port and one USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C port. The latter can charge the laptop with compatible USB PD chargers and even output display to monitors. Other options include two USB 3.2 Type-A ports for peripherals, one RJ45 Ethernet port, a headphone/mic combo jack, and a 4-in-1 card reader.

Some Lenovo ThinkBook 14 models are Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 compatible, while others are restricted to Wi-Fi 5. The notebook weighs 1.4kg (3.1lbs) and has an anodized aluminum body. The hinges allow the laptop to be laid out flat at a 180-degree angle. Lastly, its power button also doubles up as a fingerprint scanner.

I've been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I've been a stereotypical 'nerd' ever since. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry. When I'm not writing news on Notebookcheck, you can find me playing or watching an intense match of DOTA 2
