Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad E590-20NB0012GE

87.6% Lenovo ThinkPad E590 (i7, RX 550X, SSD, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
With the ThinkPad E590, Lenovo delivers a quiet workstation with very good keyboard and trackpad plus TrackPoint. The dedicated Radeon RX 550X GPU is only able to realise its potential for short periods of time, as the laptop's cooling system is not up to the task for longer sessions of use. This means that gaming is not really an option.
Lenovo ThinkPad E590 review – Whiskey Lake processors in ThinkPad E580 body
Source: Laptop Media English
All in all, we see a good business laptop here – with all the security features that distinguish the ThinkPad brand. However, we are a little disappointed by the simple rebranding Lenovo made. We were expecting it to bring something even better, but it happened to be the same device. Still, we would recommend it over the HP ProBook 450 G6, simply because of the amazing keyboard. However, if you are willing to pay a little bit extra, Dell has a great business 15-incher in the face of Latitude 15 5590.

AMD Radeon RX 550X (Laptop): Polaris based entry level dedicated graphics card with 512 shaders (8 CUs) and 4 GB GDDR5 graphics memory (128 bit memory bus). 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.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

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.


87.6%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
