Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkBook 14s Yoga G2 IAP 21DM000FGE
Source: PC Mag
We see so many sleeker convertibles with brighter, more colorful displays that we're not particularly excited by the Lenovo ThinkBook 14s Yoga Gen 2, but we can't deny it's a solid value. A sunnier screen and a better keyboard would be nice, to be sure, and those things are available in other laptops, both business models like the ThinkPad and Dell Latitude series and consumer entries like Lenovo's Yoga 9i Gen 7 and HP's Spectre line. But most of them cost considerably more. The ThinkBook is a well-built, low-priced small-business solution that you shouldn't overlook if it's in your price zone.
