Lenovo ThinkPad E14 G3 AMD Laptop Review - Affordable Business Notebook with Ryzen Power

Finally with brighter displays. Lenovo’s inexpensive ThinkPad E-series offers solid business features and good input devices. The third generation is now equipped with powerful Ryzen 5000 processors from AMD and finally brighter displays. Is the new E14 G3 the ThinkPad with the best price-performance ratio?
Andreas Osthoff 👁 (translated by Andreas Osthoff), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

The Lenovo ThinkPad E14 is an office laptop, which is not as slim as the devices from the X-series and there are not as many features as on the T-series, but the laptops often cost only half the price and they offer all the important things you need to work. Lenovo also fixes one major complaint and equips the new ThinkPad E14 G3 with brighter displays and there is also an optional screen with 100% sRGB coverage.

You also get brand-new Ryzen 5000 mobile processors from AMD, which promise a decent performance boost. We review the model 20Y7003SGE with the Ryzen 5 5500U, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB PCIe-SSD storage, and the 1080p screen with a brightness of 300 nits for 870 Euros. The price drops to 790 Euros when you have access to Lenovo’s Campus program or even 640 Euros when you do not need the Windows operating system.

Case - ThinkPad with Aluminum Chassis

Lenovo did not change the chassis and the black design might appear a bit boring, but it is definitely functional. You can notice the low price in terms of materials because you get a combination of plastic and aluminum (lid and bottom panel). The stability is still good and you cannot twist or dent the base unit (no creaking sounds). The lid itself is also sturdy, but we can quickly provoke picture distortions with concentrated pressure on the back and twisting attempts. The hinges are well adjusted and there is only minor bouncing.

The smooth surfaces are nice to touch and do not appear cheap, but they are extremely susceptible to fingerprints. The device will quickly look pretty ugly when you do not clean it regularly. There is no maintenance hatch, but you can remove the whole bottom panel (see Maintenance section). All in all, the chassis leaves a good impression, especially considering the price.

The E14 G3 is the heaviest and largest device in our comparison group; it is noticeably deeper in terms of footprint. The USB-C power adapter tips the scale at around 360 grams.

Connectivity - USB-C and USB 2.0

The port situation is still the same, even though we would appreciate some updates. You get a USB-C port including charging functionality as well as DisplayPort and a full-size HDMI output, but a slow USB 2.0 port is not really appropriate for a laptop in 2021. More expensive ThinkPad models (like the T-series) definitely have an advantage in this regard.

Communication

The Wi-Fi module can be replaced.
The Wi-Fi module can be replaced.

Lenovo uses a Wi-Fi 6 module from RealTek, but the transfer rates are lower compared to last year’s model, which was equipped with the Intel AX200. It is now a 1x1 module (160 MHz) with a maximum transfer rate of 866 Mbps. The signal quality was always good during our review period. The E14 G3 also offers a Gigabit Ethernet port, but there are no WWAN modules available.

Webcam

As expected, you only get a simple 720p webcam (0.9 MP) with a mechanical shutter (ThinkShutter), which takes pretty bad pictures. There is also an IR camera for facial recognition via Windows Hello.

Maintenance

Similar to previous ThinkPad E laptops, you can remove the whole bottom cover, but the process is not simple. The panel is still extremely tight after you have removed all the screws and there are plenty of plastic clips that can break easily. Other ThinkPad models are much easier to open.

Once inside, you get access to the two M.2-SSDs (2280 & 2242) as well as the Wi-Fi module. You can replace the memory module as well, but the single slot is hidden underneath an additional cover.

Warranty

The warranty once again shows the entry-level position of the ThinkPad E14, because our test unit only comes with a one-year warranty. You can still extend the duration for an additional price. Some models of the E14 are also sold with a two-year warranty.

Input Devices - Currently the best ThinkPad Keyboard

The ThinkPad E14 G3 still gets the familiar and excellent keyboard with 1.8 mm travel and rich feedback. Despite the low price, the E14 has a big advantage over much more expensive ThinkPad X models, which are now equipped with shallower and flatter keyboards. You will definitely be happy when you write a lot and the E14 G3 also comes with a two-stage background illumination.

While Lenovo equips some of its new models with wider touchpads, but the E14 is still equipped with the narrower version (10 x 5.6 cm). The handling does not cause any problems and the clicking sound leaves a high-quality impression. The additional TrackPoint buttons on the other hand are a bit wobbly.

Display - E14 is available with 100% sRGB

The displays have always been a problem of the inexpensive ThinkPad E14-series. The picture quality was okay for an office laptop, but the brightness was hardly competitive at around 250 nits. Lenovo now improved the situation, and our test unit is the default IPS screen with an advertised brightness of 300 nits, and our test unit even manages 330 nits. There is also an optional panel with full sRGB coverage if you want to edit pictures. Some regions also get an inexpensive TN panel with a brightness of 250 nits, but we would not recommend this option.

The subjective picture impression of the matte panel is good and bright areas do not look grainy. The contrast ratio is more than 1300:1 and we cannot detect PWM flickering. The response times are inconspicuous, but there is noticeable backlight bleeding on a dark screen, especially in the upper left corner as well as the lower right edge. The viewing angle stability of the IPS panel is good.

* ... smaller is better

We analyzed the display with the professional CalMAN software and the grayscale is already very accurate out of the box. There is only a minor blue cast, but it is not visible with the naked eye. The colors on the other hand clearly show that it is an inexpensive IPS screen with limited color gamut (~60% sRGB) and we can see huge deviations compared to the sRGB reference color space.

We calibrated the panel (X-Rite i1 Pro 2) and the corresponding profile can be downloaded in the box above. The grayscale improved a bit, but the colors still show high deviations.

The picture quality is completely sufficient for a business laptop, but you should get the optional 1080p screen with 100% sRGB if you want to edit pictures with accurate colors.

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
21.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 12.4 ms rise
↘ 9.2 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 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 31 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
35.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17.2 ms rise
↘ 18 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. » 33 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (37.6 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21033 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The additional brightness is definitely appreciated outdoors and you have a little bit more headroom, but you should still get a place in the shade for the most comfortable viewing experience.

The new ThinkPad E14 beats the rivals in multi-core benchmarks. Tiger Lake based laptops are much slower and even the 45W processor Core i7-10850H in the Dell Latitude 14 is slower than the AMD chip. If you only stress one core, however, the Intel chips have an advantage. We should mention that Intel CPUs often benefit from high power limits for short peak load, which is not the case for the AMD chip in the E14. The performance is not reduced on battery power.

Storage Devices

Both SSDs (M.2-2242 & M.2-2280) can be replaced.
Both SSDs (M.2-2242 & M.2-2280) can be replaced.

The ThinkPad E14 G3 has two SSD slots. Our review unit was equipped with a compact M.2-2242 module from SK Hynix (BC711) and a storage capacity of 512 GB (435 GB free after initial set-up). Both drives are attached via PCIe-3.0 x4 and the transfer rates are good. Thanks to the empty M.2-2280 slot, it is very easy to upgrade the storage capacity if necessary. More SSD benchmarks can be found here.

GPU Performance - RX Vega 7 with small improvements

GPU-Z RX Vega 7
GPU-Z RX Vega 7

The Ryzen 5 5500U is equipped with the integrated Radeon RX Vega 7, which is basically the old Vega 7 we already know from Ryzen 4000 chips. More technical information about the iGPU is available here. This is also the case for the performance, which benefits from the dual-channel memory configuration, but it is on the expected level in general. Intel's integrated Xe Graphics G7, which is also available in the Intel model of the ThinkPad E14 G2, for example, is a bit faster in the synthetic benchmarks.

There is still a change, because AMD has improved the efficiency of the integrated video decoder. Old Vega 7 iGPUs were at about 60% GPU load during 4K video playback, but the new version is below 10%. This also improves the battery runtime during video playback. Intel's Xe Graphics G7 (~30% GPU load) is also beaten.

The graphics performance is also stable during longer workloads. More GPU benchmarks are available in our Tech section.
