Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad E15 G4-21E60050GE

[REVIEW] Lenovo ThinkPad E15 Gen 4 - you better wait for more 12th Gen business notebooks
Source: Laptop Media English
Intel is saving a lot of notebooks in 2022 with their Alder lake processors, with the hardware upgrade improving the performance significantly. There are noticeable budget cuts like the I/O and the display selection, but you always have to make sacrifices with budget options.

Lenovo ThinkPad E15 Gen 4 review
Source: Laptop Media English
You know, Intel is becoming something of a redemption for manufacturers in 2022. There are a lot of laptops that haven’t been changed a bit, but only because they feature an Alder Lake CPU of any sort, they can be considered a big win. This is exactly the case with the ThinkPad E15 Gen 4. Quite frankly, it is nothing special. On the other hand, its job is to be ordinary – provide everything one would need to execute its business needs, but do it securely. As such, the device is not bad at all. However, we were baffled by the use of the USB Type-A 2.0 port. Not only that but there are only two USB Type-A ports in total. This makes the E15 Gen 4 easy prey for the ProBook 450 G9, and the Latitude 15 3530 (when both of them finally hit the shelves). Lenovo ThinkPad E15 Gen 4’s IPS panel has a Full HD resolution, comfortable viewing angles, good contrast ratio, and a non-flickering backlight. This makes it safe for long periods of use, without suffering the negative effects of PWM. On the other hand, it covers only half of the colors found on the Web.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
