Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad E470-20H2S00400

85.3% Lenovo ThinkPad E470 (Core i5, GeForce 940MX) Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Small Update, Big Impact? The ThinkPad E470 is the latest addition to the popular Lenovo business series. This entry-level model of the E-series uses a 7th generation Intel Core processor and promises more performance and battery life. All of this for an attractive price. Is the quality still up to par?
Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E470 review – a classic ThinkPad in a 14-inch form factor
Source: Laptop Media English
To be honest, the ThinkPad E470 isn’t bringing anything new compared to the previous generations except the fact that it feels more like the high-end machines from the ThinkPad series. It’s quite rigid and well built. The design is strict, classic and serious while the input devices are almost flawless. We say almost because the only thing missing at this point is a keyboard backlight.

NVIDIA GeForce 940MX: Mid-range laptop graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
7200U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.5 to 3.1 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
14":

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.

1.87 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, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. 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.


85.3%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
