The laptop sports a sleek and smooth aluminum design that looks and feels way better than any HP Pavilion or Dell Inspiron for the same price.
Allen Ngo,

Part business laptop and part consumer laptop, the Lenovo ThinkBook 14 is a hybrid between an IdeaPad and a ThinkPad designed for prosumers and casual business users alike. The series is relatively new as Lenovo only introduced it a little over a year ago. Now, the ThinkBook 14 can be had for under $500 USD down from its original launch price of $760 USD.

When compared to other laptop in the $500 range, this particular Lenovo deal stands out because of its cleaner and classier aluminum look. Lenovo specifically designed its ThinkBook laptops to be more visually appealing than the typical plastic HP Pavilion or Dell Vostro/Inspiron laptops. If you plan on carrying your laptop around with you between classes and meetings, then the ThinkBook 14 will help you look a bit more professional without breaking the bank.

Internally, users will be getting a 10th gen Core i5-10210U CPU with 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB PCIe NVMe SSD, backlit keyboard, and a 1080p IPS display. The best part is that users can upgrade both RAM and storage to give the system longer legs unlike some Lenovo Yoga models. Drawbacks, however, include average display quality and a bottom panel that can be difficult to open up.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
