81.8% Lenovo ThinkBook 15 Laptop Review: An affordable office device with a Comet Lake processor | Notebookcheck
The ThinkBook range is the link between the ThinkPad and IdeaPad series. The inexpensive entry-level laptop should not only convince home users, though. In this review, we will clarify whether the ThinkBook 15 can master everyday office life.

The Lenovo Thinkbook 15 ticks the majority of boxes needed for a notebook aimed at the SME market. It’s a good-looking machine that gets the job done, thanks to decent specs (including an SSD), great ports, an added number pad, Vantage software and full HD screen. That said, little niggles such as viewing angle concerns, battery life under eight hours, and a lack of lights on certain buttons, take away from the overall score.

Lenovo ThinkBook 15 review – something that provides a great value
Source: Laptop Media English
Sadly, the cooling of this device seems a little underwhelming – Lenovo uses a single, thin and long heat pipe to cool off both their CPU and GPU – not the greatest strategy known to mankind. However, if you are a typer, you will love the keyboard, as it has good travel clicky feedback and huge keycaps. Also, let’s not forget the backlight, the NumberPad section and the fingerprint reader, which is embedded into the Power On/Off button.

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.

AMD Radeon 620: Entry level graphics card with 320 shaders (5 compute units) or 384 shaders (6 compute units), 4 GB DDR3 or GDDR5 and a 64 Bit memory bus. Therefore, comparable to an old Radeon R7 M445 / M440 / M340 / M255 (28nm GCN).

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Intel Iris Plus Graphics G4 (Ice Lake 48 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 48 of the 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel produced.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Ice Lake:

i7-1060G7: Ice-Lake based low power quad core processor for thin and light laptops and tablets. Integrated four Sunnycove cores clocked at 1 - 3.8 GHz that support Hyperthreading (8 threads). Furthermore, the SoC integrates a powerful Intel Iris Plus Graphics G7 graphics card clocked at 1.1 GHz and Wifi 6 / Thunderbolt partly integrated. The chip is manufactured in the modern 10nm process at Intel.

i5-1035G4: Ice-Lake based low power quad core processor for thin and light laptops. Integrated four Sunnycove cores clocked at 1.1 - 3.7 GHz that support Hyperthreading (8 threads). Furthermore, the SoC integrates a relatively fast Iris Plus G4 graphics card  and Wifi 6 / Thunderbolt partly integrated. The chip is manufactured in the modern 10nm process at Intel.

Intel Comet Lake:

i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.

1.7 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

1.852 kg:


79.93%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
