Lenovo ThinkBook 15p 4K laptop review: Multimedia allrounder with a great 4K display but weak connections

Premium screen, entry-level connections. Lenovo has equipped its entry-level business series again with a Comet Lake processor, combining the CPU with a GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q, and thus turning the device into a multimedia allrounder. With this, it now offers the same specs as the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen3, but at a lower price. Our detailed test reveals any advantages the ThinkPad might still have or not have, compared to the ThinkBook.
Christian Hintze, 👁 Andreas Osthoff (translated by Mark Riege), 🇩🇪 🇮🇹 ...

The ThinkBooks form Lenovo's intersection between the IdeaPads for consumers and the ThinkPads for business users. The new ThinkBook 15p represents a spin-off from last year's ThinkBook 15. Lenovo now includes a Geforce 1650 Ti Max-Q, resulting in the ThinkBook offering almost the same equipment as the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen3, only at a lower price.

However, you should not confuse the ThinkBook 15p with the ThinkBook 15 Gen2, since their equipment characteristics are very different. The model without the "p" in the label has a ULV processor (Intel Gen 11) and better connections (Thunderbolt 4, USB 3.2 Gen2), while our "p" test unit scores with a dedicated GPU and a significantly brighter display (600 vs. 250/300 nits), but lacks the other advantages.

Case - Silver aluminum for the ThinkBooks

As case material, mainly silver-gray aluminum is used again. In contrast to the quasi predecessor, the ThinkBook 15 Gen1, even the bottom plate now appears to be made from thin metal. Plastic is only used around the display bezels and on the hinge. Accordingly, the overall stability is very good. Of course, the display lid can be bent slightly, but it is still relatively stable, and when it is pressed in, the display remains unaffected. The hinge is sufficiently tight, and the lid can be opened up to 180 degrees.

The workmanship appears good overall, and we did not notice any unusually large gaps.  

At first glance, you can hardly notice any change of the 15-inch case compared to the predecessor. The differences lie in the connections and the slightly changed size. Surprisingly, the new ThinkBook 15p is 1 mm (~0.04 in) thicker and 4.5 mm (~0.18 in) deeper, but 5 mm (~0.2 in) less wide. In addition, due to the more powerful hardware it became 100 grams (~3.5 oz) heavier.

The competitors have a similar size and weight, and only the Schenker Vision 15 with the new Intel NUC-M15 design is significantly slimmer and lighter. It probably shows the direction that 15-inch laptops will also take in the future, and the ThinkBook is less forward-looking in this regard.

Equipment - Yesterday's connections

After we had complained last year about this, the power connection has now changed from the right to the left side, which means that it doesn't conflict with the Kensington lock anymore. However, one of the two USB Type-C ports that were there before has been removed instead. 

Unfortunately, the manufacturer has also foregone Thunderbolt or at least faster USB ports. All the USB ports (2x Type-A, 1x Type-C) only support 3.2 Gen1, which is USB 3.0. The fact that with one USB-2.0 port as well as the second Type-C port, there are already two USB connections that have been removed becomes negatively noticeable. The USB C port also does not support charging of the laptops.

The positioning of the ports on the left side is slightly crowded, and a bulky HDMI plug and a USB stick might get in the way of each other. On the other hand, right-handed users might like the lack of connections that could otherwise hinder mouse movements on the right side.

SD Card Reader

The card reader can accept full-size SD cards, even though the Lenovo website strangely speaks about microSD cards. On the other hand, the speed of the SD card reader is yesteryear's and unable to keep up with the competitors. Copying 1 GB of images from our AV Pro V60 reference storage cards to the desktop takes more than 39 seconds. The competitors and particularly the inhouse ThinkPad are three to four times faster.

Communication

With the Intel AX201, Lenovo uses a modern WiFi 6 modem. The transfer rates are very good and not any worse than those of the more expensive ThinkPad.

Webcam

The standard webcam is nothing to write home about, and the image sharpness is even worse than that of the ThinkPad or the Schenker Vision. But at least the color reproduction is acceptable compared to the rest of the price class. The available manual shutter is a positive feature.

Security

Power button with fingerprint sensor (image source: Lenovo)
Power button with fingerprint sensor (image source: Lenovo)

As entry-level into the business segment, the ThinkBook does not offer a smartcard reader or anything similar.

Instead, there is a fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button, as well as TM 2.0 and a connection for a Kensington Lock.

Accessories

Aside from a quick start manual and warranty card, there are no accessories included.

Maintenance

After opening the corners, it seems impossible to proceed, since the holding clamps are very tight.
After opening the corners, it seems impossible to proceed, since the holding clamps are very tight.

Removing the bottom of the case turns out to be not very easy. First we have to remove 10 Philips screws of two different sizes. After that, we can start to pry off the case, starting from the front corners. However, since there are still some clamps holding the case tightly in place, we are unable to pry it open with our bare hands. Without using some additional prying tools, it is impossible to open the ThinkBook, and even then, we are afraid to brake off the holding clamps.

Warranty

ThinkBooks only offer a one-year warranty that can be extended up to three years at an additional price.

Input Devices - Not as good as the ThinkPad's but still decent

Keyboard

The keyboard
The keyboard

Lenovo uses a chiclet keyboard with a white, two-step background illumination. It also fits a small number block next to it. The power key is positioned separately on the right, above the rest of the keys.

The layout and lettering look clear, and the ordered impression is also amplified by the keys that are rounded on the bottom. The F9 key opens the service page of the Lenovo website in the browser, offering contact information and information on the device and remaining warranty period. The up and down arrow keys have to share the usual height, and the function keys have a smaller height and width.

The key stroke turned out quite short, reminding more of the IdeaPad than the ThinkPad series, which is usually very good in this regard. However, the feedback is still easily noticeable, and typing succeeds quickly and easily. The key stroke noises are very moderate.

Touchpad

The touchpad
The touchpad

The touchpad measures about 10.5 x 7 cm (~4.1 x 2.8 in) and is moved to the left below the space bar due to the numpad. The surface offers good sliding characteristics. Only in very slow movements and if you use a lot of pressure, your finger can get stuck a bit. However, you better not have moist fingers, since otherwise you can hardly navigate. 

While the integrated Click keys don't leave the highest quality impression, they reliably do what they are supposed to do, and the clicking volume is okay.

Display - 4K, bright, high in contrast, and good

Lenovo uses a matte 4K UHD IPS display from a still fairly unknown manufacturer called "China Star." However, sceptics of the "cheap" sounding name will soon be convinced. At about 600 nits, the brightness is very good. The same goes for the very even brightness distribution of 91%, and even the more expensive ThinkPad is unable to keep up here.

Alternatively, the ThinkBook 15p is also available with a Full HD display.

* ... smaller is better

At 1619 : 1, the contrast is also more than decent and only barely surpassed by the Schenker Vision 15. As in the ThinkPad, the black value, on the other hand, leaves some room for improvement.

The display is adjusted well in the state of delivery. The color deviations are minimal and cannot be further optimized.

For the color space coverage, the manufacturer specifies 100% AdobeRGB (2D overlap) coverage. We measure 83.6% for the 3D overlap. Only the Asus ZenBook actually achieves almost 100% here.

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
26.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 12.8 ms rise
↘ 14 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 55 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.1 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
44.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 21.2 ms rise
↘ 23.6 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 68 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.2 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: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9720 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 151500) Hz was measured.

Looking at the IPS display from steep viewing angles, you won't lose much image detail in terms of brightness. 

Performance - Full speed ahead in the ThinkBook 15p

In contrast to the ThinkBook 15 (without the "p"), Lenovo does not use an efficient Tiger Lake processor but Comet Lake (Intel Gen 10), combining this with an Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q and 16 GB RAM in dual channel mode. This qualifies the ThinkBook 15p as a multimedia allrounder, allowing you to use it in equal measure for image and video processing as well as gaming - at least on paper.

Processor

The Intel Core i7-10750H is a Comet Lake CPU from last year whose six cores have a clock speed of 2.6 to 5 GHz, and it can also achieve a Turbo speed of 4.3 GHz on all cores simultaneously. The integrated UHD Graphics 630 graphics unit is only suited for less demanding graphics tasks.

In the Cinebench loop, the CPU will briefly reach a TDP von 88 watts and then quickly drop to 50 watts for the rest of the first and subsequent loops. During the start of each new loop, the TDP briefly reaches about 75 watts before dropping to 50 watts again. After about 15 minutes, it only reaches 45 watts. This means that the first run is about 9% faster than the subsequent runs in the next 15 minutes, and after that the performance drops again by 5%.

In the comparison, the ThinkPad X1 and the Asus ZenBook with the same CPU run minimally faster. The CPU in the ThinkBook 15p runs about 5 to 10% below the average of all laptops with the same processor.

In battery operation, the performance drops more significantly by a whole 42%.

System Performance

In PCMark 10, the differences between the competitors are small. The almost similarly equipped ThinkPad X1 and Asus ZenBook again tend to place ahead of the ThinkBook. However, the performance is almost at the expected level and only drops slightly in the "Essentials" subtest (-6 %).

DPC Latencies

The LatencyMon tool determines that there are already some latencies when opening several browser tabs. When reproducing our 4K/60-fps test video on YouTube, there are 11 dropped frames. Those are not very good signs for a multimedia allrounder, and at least the real time audio reproduction might be problematic. Among other things, problems arise from a DirectX and an Nvidia driver as well as the well-known framework runtime kernel mode driver.

Storage Solution

An M.2 NVMe SSD from Western Digital with 1 TB of storage space represents the storage solution. In our list of best SSD/HDDs, this model achieves the 16th place, so it should offer some decent transfer rates. While it does indeed deliver good rates, the Samsung SSDs in the quasi predecessor and particularly in the Schenker Vision 15 are still a bit faster.

Graphics Card

Via Optimus, the laptop automatically switches between the integrated UHD Graphics 630 and the dedicated Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q, which is the more efficient version of the GTX 1650 Ti offering slightly less performance. Its performance depends largely on the configured TGP (35 or 40 watts). In this case, Lenovo has adjusted the TGP to 35 watts, which saves some energy but does not necessarily gain the maximum performance from the card.

However, the performance in the 3DMark benchmarks is very good and most of the time 5 to 10% above that of an average GTX 1650 Ti from our database. In the comparison, only the Asus ZenBook is able to keep up, while all the others are slower, including the ThinkPad X1 (about -5%).

In battery mode, the 3D performance drops by about 23%.

Gaming Performance

Gaming also succeeds fairly well with the Lenovo laptop. Fairly current games such as "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" can often also be played in Full HD resolution at medium to high details. Here, the 1650 Ti Max-Q operates at times even slightly faster than the average of laptops with the same GPU. The Asus ZenBook is often minimally slower, and the ThinkPad X1 offers about the same speed considering all the games.
