Lenovo ThinkBook 15 G3 ACL review: Low-emissions office notebook that goes the distance

Office all-rounder. The ThinkBook scores points with a Ryzen 5 APU, moderate emissions, and good battery life. This laptop comes with Windows 11 Pro and offers USB-C power delivery as one of its strong points. The whole package is available for around 600 Euros (US$728).

With the ThinkBook, Lenovo delivers an office notebook that is meant to provide an option in between the IdeaPad and the ThinkPad: a solid, affordable notebook for private and professional users. Its main competition includes devices like the Asus ExpertBook B1 B1500CEAE, the HP ProBook 445 G8, and the Acer Extensa 15 EX215-54.

We already tested this device's predecessor and successor, the ThinkBook 15 G2 ITL and the Lenovo ThinkBook 15 G4 ABA. While the G3 model is based on AMD's Cezanne and Lucienne APUs, the G2 (Tiger Lake, Renoir) and the G4 (Alder Lake, Barcelo) are available with either Intel or AMD chips.

Case and connectivity - a Lenovo computer that offers USB-C Power Delivery

The silver-grey case doesn't show any manufacturing flaws. However, the computer's base can be twisted and warped a bit too much: there is a noticeable lack of rigidity here. Lenovo relies on metal (back of the lid) and plastic elements (base) along with matte, smooth surfaces. The battery (screwed, rather than glued) and the other internals are accessible by removing the bottom shell. On the plus side, the built-in webcam (0.9 MP, max. 1280x720 pixels) comes with a mechanical cover.

The computer comes with two USB-A (USB 3.2 Gen 1) and two USB-C ports (USB 3.2 Gen 2; Power Delivery, Displayport via USB-C). The notebook has three video outputs in total (2x DP, 1x HDMI). The SD memory card reader (reference card: AV PRO SD 128 GB V60) is a medium-speed model.

The WiFi transfer rates under optimal conditions (no other WiFi devices in the immediate vicinity, with a short distance between the notebook and the server PC) are good but don't quite correspond to the WiFi chip's full capabilities (MediaTek MT7921; 802.11 ax).

Input devices - the ThinkBook G3 comes with a lit keyboard

Flat smooth keys of the lit chiclet keyboard (2 brightness levels) have a short travel as well as a clear pressure point, with a pleasant level of resistance for the keys. The keyboard yields slightly while typing, although it was not too disruptive. All in all, Lenovo delivers a keyboard that is suitable for everyday use.

The smooth surface of the multi-touch clickpad (approx. 10.5 x 7 cm) makes gliding easy for the fingers, while also responding to inputs in the corners. The pad has a short drop and a clear pressure point.

The matte 15.6-inch screen (1920x1080 pixels) falls short of the target range (> 300 cd/m² and 1000:1) in terms of brightness (271.4 cd/m²) as well as contrast (776:1). Most of the competitors fare better here - with the exception of the Extensa. On the plus side, the panel does not show any PWM flickering with any of the brightness settings.

* ... smaller is better

The screen displays colors properly as delivered: however, the target color accuracy (DeltaE < 3) can't quite be reached, with a deviation of 4.17. The display cannot reproduce the AdobeRGB (45%), sRGB (66%), and DCI-P3 (44%) color spaces. The panel is therefore not appropriate for application scenarios that rely on color fidelity. In this respect, however, things don't look much better for the competitors, either.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
21 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 12 ms rise
↘ 9 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 35 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
30 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14 ms rise
↘ 16 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 28 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (35.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19466 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel has a stable viewing angle and can be read from any position. It's not a problem to read the screen outdoors, as long as the sun is not too bright.

Performance - Lenovo relies on Ryzen-APUs

Lenovo's office notebook is aimed at both private and professional users. Only models with a Ryzen 5 5500U or Ryzen 7 5700U APU were available at the time of testing. The identically set up predecessor (ThinkBook 15 G2) and successor series (ThinkBook 15 G4) offer a little more choice. The G2 is available with Intel Tiger Lake or AMD Renoir chips,while the G4 can come with Intel Alder Lake or AMD Barcelo hardware.

Test conditions

The key combination "Fn" + "Q" can be used to switch between the three manufacturer-specific energy profiles ("Intelligent Cooling", "High Performance", and "Battery Saving Mode"). The test was carried out with the standard "Intelligent Cooling" profile. The profiles differ slightly in terms of multi-threaded CPU performance, while GPU performance always stays the same.

Intelligent cooling High performance Battery saving mode
Power Limit 1 25 Watt 37,5 Watt 20 Watt
Power Limit 2 48 Watt 48 Watt 48 Watt

Processor

The CPU part of the Ryzen 5 5500U APU (Lucienne) consists of six cores with a base clock of 2.1 GHz. A boost up to 4.05 GHz is possible via Turbo. Simultaneous multithreading (two threads per core) is also supported.

The multi-thread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark was processed at 4 GHz for a short time, although the clock speed then drops to between 3.4 and 3.5 GHz. The single thread test ran at 1.8 to 4.05 GHz. The CPU worked at 2.5 to 3.5 GHz (multithread) or 1.4 to 3.5 GHz (single thread) while in battery mode. The CB15 loop test confirmed that sustained use of the CPU Turbo is possible. The "High Performance" profile provides a slight increase in multi-threaded performance.

System performance

This smooth-running system handles office and internet applications as well as gaming with low graphics settings. However, part of the performance is wasted, because the RAM (8 GB, DDR4-3200, onboard) only runs in single-channel mode. Installing another RAM module would help things quite a bit - especially in terms of the graphics performance. The available RAM's transfer rates are on a normal level for DDR4-3200 memory. The PCMark results are good.

There's a free RAM slot.

Storage devices

Lenovo has equipped the ThinkBook with a PCIe 3 SSD (M.2 2242; M.2 2280 models will also fit) from Samsung, which offers a storage capacity of 256 GB. The transfer rates are good, but it's not a top-of-the-line SSD. It had some drops in performance during the latter half of the DiskSpd loop. The notebook can also accommodate a second PCIe SSD.

One SSD serves as a system drive.
