Lenovo ThinkPad E480 review – ThinkPad quality on the budget
Source: Laptop Media English
Like any other, the Lenovo ThinkPad E480 is not perfect. The notebook has its pros and cons, however, the overall experience using it left us with a pleasant thought. As we mentioned in the beginning, the ThinkPad E480 is priced a little bit more than other models with similar hardware but some premium features justify this.

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.
