Model:

At the beginning of the year, Lenovo released the ThinkPad E14 Gen 1 as the successor of the Lenovo ThinkPad E490 with a fresh design. Now, the ThinkPad E14 Gen 2 has been released as a redesign of the Gen 1 model. In terms of its design, Lenovo has improved the ThinkPad E series over the years. About three to four years ago, the affordable E models were still completely made out of plastic, but this is not the case with this new ThinkPad E14 Gen 2. Lenovo has improved this model by implementing much smaller screen bezels. Portraying the matte-black colour along with straight and sharp corners, this ThinkPad definitely exudes an aura of seriousness. There is an optical feature that clearly distinguishes the E14 Gen 2 as a 2020 ThinkPad design: the silver Lenovo logo on the lid.

There is obviously no magnesium structure frame like in the ThinkPad T series and no aluminium unibody-style construction like with the ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 5. However, the E14 Gen 2 comprises aluminium parts, which does increases the stiffness, but makes it susceptible to dents and bending in long term. It should also be noted that pressure on the back of the screen is passed onto the LCD panel comparably fast, but at least the keyboard does not flex. Apart from that, the hinge of the ThinkPad E14 Gen 2 has a firm grip on the screen and enables an opening angle of 180 degrees. In addition, opening the screen with one hand is possible as well.

One priority of the redesign seems to have been reducing the length of the chassis. The ThinkPad E14 is definitely shorter and more compact than the Gen 1. In terms of its connectivity, this model has been equipped with only a single USB Type-C port and USB-2.0 port. This might turn out to be a drawback for some users, as the USB-C port does not support Thunderbolt for charging, while the other one only supports USB-2.0 speed. In terms of its keyboard, this device has been equipped with a full-size unit keyboard with 1.8 mm travel. This creates an absolutely comfortable typing experience. In addition, the pressure point is neither too soft nor too hard, and the keys have just the right amount of resistance. However, they do have a slightly rough surface. 

As for the screen, the matte LCD screen of the ThinkPad E14 Gen 2 measures 14 inches (16:9). There is also change compared to the ThinkPad E495, as the HD option (1366 x 768) has been evicted and replaced with FHD (1920 x 1080) screens instead. In terms of its battery, the ThinkPad E14 Gen 2 carries a 45Wh battery. Overall, this is great laptop to be explored, depending on the need and preference of the users.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.

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.
