Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad A275

81.5% Lenovo ThinkPad A275 (A12-9800B, 256GB) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Uncertain Prospect. Lenovo has created an AMD version of the X270. It excels in terms of input devices, security and portability. However, the stability and build quality are subpar, and the display somehow does not quite seem to fit the bill.

Comment

AMD Radeon R7 (Bristol Ridge): Integrated graphics card in some Bristol Ridge APUs and based on the GCN architecture with 512 shader units and clock speeds of up to 900 MHz (9830P).

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


PRO A12-9800B: Business version of the AMD FX-9800P APU and therefore also based on the Bristol Ridge generation. Integrates 4 CPU cores (2 modules with 4 integer and 2 FP units) clocked at 2.7 - 3.6 GHz. It is rated at a TDP of 12 - 15 Watt (configurable by the laptop manufacturer).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.50":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.623 kg:

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


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.


81.5%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
