Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad E470-20H2S00400
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?

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.
