Lenovo ThinkPad L14 G3 AMD laptop review: Long battery life plus AMD power

The superior T14? Lenovo has improved its budget ThinkPad L14 by giving it longer battery life and a slimmer design. The laptop's advantages over the ThinkPad T14 include having two RAM slots and lower emissions. And the AMD CPU inside is brimming with performance. In this review, we'll also examine any shortcomings the device may have.

Besides several exciting improvements, the Lenovo ThinkPad L14 G3 AMD also has a few advantages over the ThinkPad T14 G3. In this review, we will discuss whether they are enough to make the L14 the better choice. The L14 G3 features two RAM slots – this is a step-up from the T series, whose AMD models even only come with soldered RAM.

The L14 likewise has one crucial advantage over the Intel variant of the T14: a higher power limit of 25 watts and a better cooling solution. As a result, the L series, aimed mainly at business users and companies, could now potentially be appealing to consumers as well. 

Compared to the previous-gen L14, the new device has a significantly slimmer chassis and looks more like the ThinkPad E14. Furthermore, the battery capacity has increased to 63 Wh on some models (previously 45 Wh). That said, there are changes to the choice of materials that are not necessarily optimal. We will talk more about this and the other changes later in the review. The ThinkPad L14 G3 is competing directly with laptops such as the HP ProBook 445 G8 as well as the Dell Latitude 14 5420 and Inspiron 14 5425.

Case: The ThinkPad L14 has a compact footprint

Lenovo ThinkPad L14 G3 AMD
Lenovo ThinkPad L14 G3 AMD

ThinkPads are usually black. This is the case with the previous-gen model. In contrast, the colour on the new L14 can definitely be described as grey.

Typically, the L series uses a lot of plastic in its construction. Lenovo once again didn't included a magnesium frame to reinforce the laptop, unlike on the predecessor L14 G2. Some Lenovo models come with a base made partially of carbon as well as an optional aluminium lid. Our review unit has neither of these features.

Unfortunately, the chassis can be flexed in the area around the palm rest, although this is not an issue in everyday use. Similarly, we wish the lid were a little bit stiffer. The hinges are very sturdy and prevent you from opening the laptop with one hand, but the display can fold back by 180°. The surfaces on the devices are smooth for the most part, with the lid having a slightly roughened texture. In terms of fit and finish, we didn't notice any gaps or flaws in the laptop's body.

Significantly thinner bezel (source: Campuspoint)

The bezel around the display has become considerably thinner, resulting in a screen-to-body ratio of 81.8%. The ThinkPad L14 G3 is thus more compact than the ThinkPad E14 G3. It is also 1 cm (0.4") shorter at the sides than the ThinkPad T14, which, on the other hand, is narrower thanks to its 16:10 display.

Moreover, the new L14 is around 200 g (0.44 lb) lighter than its predecessor and weighs 1.566 kg (3.45 lb) in the review configuration, putting it on the same level as its competitors. The lightest L14 model comes in at 1.39 kg (3.06"), with the battery option accounting for part of the weight difference.

The Lenovo ThinkPad L14 G3 has a wide range of features

Nothing much has changed in terms of the port selection – which is a good thing. Besides a HDMI 2.0 output, a microSD card reader and a gigabit Ethernet port, which thankfully has been moved closer to the back, there are four USB ports on the device: 2x USB-C (max. 10 GBit/s), which both support PD 3.0 and DisplayPort 1.4, and 2x USB-A 3.2 Gen 1. However, you won't be getting any Thunderbolt or USB 4 support.

SD card reader

We tested the SD card reader on the ThinkPad L14 with our reference card, the AV PRO micro SD 128 GB V60, and found that its read and write speeds were quite average. By comparison, the card reader on the Dell Latitude 14 5420 performed much better, offering transfer rates that were two to three times higher.

AMD/MediaTek RZ616: the Wi-Fi 6 module installed

The replaceable Wi-Fi 6 module from AMD/Mediatek is almost completely ahead of the pack in our comparison. Based on our measurements, the transmit and receive rates have practically doubled when compared with the last-gen ThinkPad L14. In addition, none of the new L14 models are equipped with a slow Realtek chip.

Our review model is WWAN-ready (i.e. it has a free M.2 slot and an antenna cable). The Bluetooth 5.1 didn't give us any problems, contrary to the growing number of reports about ThinkPads with the latest AMD processors. NFC is available as an option.

Security

On the ThinkPad L14 G3, Lenovo has integrated the optional fingerprint reader into the power button. The laptop is also equipped with an entire suite of security features for business users, including TPM 2.0, a SmartCard reader, a Kensington slot, an IR camera with physical shutter and Mirametrix Glance.

Accessories

Whilst the L-series lacks a docking port, it can still be connected to USB-C docks. In the box, you'll only find a 65-watt USB-C power adapter included with the laptop. And 90% of the packaging is made of materials that are recycled or sourced from sustainable forestry.

Maintenance

After removing 11 Phillips-head screws, you can remove the bottom cover using a spudger. But be careful: the plastic clips can break easily.

There are many great things about the internals in our opinion: two RAM slots, a removable Wi-Fi module, a free M.2 slot for WWAN, a cooling system that can be easily maintained, and a replaceable SSD. Unlike its predecessor, the L14 G3 uses an SSD with the shorter M.2 2242 form factor to accommodate the larger battery (also replaceable). One of the USB-A ports is on a daughterboard and can thus also be replaced if it is broken.

Warranty

Lenovo provides a 12-month warranty on the L14 G3 in both Germany and the US. Although our campus model comes with Premier Onsite Support, the default warranty only offers courier or carry-in service. You can, however, upgrade and extend the warranty by two years for around 95 Euro (US$99), and three years for around 210 Euro (US$189).

Great input devices with some quirks

Keyboard

The ThinkPad L14 has had a shorter key travel of 1.5 mm (0.06") since the very first generation. This means the E series remains the only choice if you prefer a key travel of 1.8 mm (0.07"). The six-row full-width keyboard is very comfortable, fast and quiet to type on.

Lenovo uses keyboards from different suppliers on its ThinkPads; the keyboard on our review unit is made by Sunrex and doesn't feel as crisp as the one on our ThinkPad T16 review sample. Because it lacks a magnesium frame, the keyboard exhibits noticeable flex when pushed down deliberately. When typing, you will only notice some flex on the number keys 6 to 9 and on the down arrow key. All important special function keys are dedicated.

The splash-resistant keyboard is replaceable

Touchpad & TrackPoint

The touchpad is now 15% wider but shorter by the same percentage, measuring 11.5 x 5.5 cm (4.53 x 2.17"). The slightly rough Mylar surface isn't as smooth as the one on current T series models. But it still feel great to use nonetheless. The touchpad is responsive, precise and able to recognise common gestures without any delay. The integrated buttons have a low click depth but feel dull to press.

The red TrackPoint in the middle of the keyboard works as expected and lets you move the mouse cursor around the screen with speed and precision. The three TrackPoint buttons below are now completely flat. Nevertheless, they still provide a distinct and accurate click.

Our review unit comes with a matt Full HD IPS display (1,920 × 1,080) with a 16:9 aspect ratio, even though the ThinkPad L13 has already made the jump to a 16:10 display. The screen looks sharp enough at this resolution and is capable of producing a relatively saturated black thanks to its great contrast of 1,219:1 and a low black level of 0.24 nits. At 7,071K, the white point doesn't quite hit the optimal value of 6,500K. 

The screen has a low peak brightness of 282 nits. If possible, you should go for the low-power display option, as it is much brighter at 400 nits and thus more practical for outdoor use. We didn't detect any PWM flicker. Apart from the IdeaPad 5 Pro 14 and ThinkPad T14 G3, all the other devices in the comparison have a similar level of performance.

Colours on the screen deviate significantly from the target values. Calibrating the display didn't really improve the situation, but it at least remove the slight cyan tint. As usual, you'll find a link to download the colour profile created by us on the right of the brightness distribution diagram.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 8 ms rise
↘ 8 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 13 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
25 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 12 ms rise

The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 25 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (35.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19466 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The matt finish makes the display quite readable outdoors. However, the user would have to avoid direct sunlight because the screen only has a peak brightness of about 280 nits.

ThinkPad L14 delivers great performance but has stability issues

Our review unit comes with one 8 GB RAM module and can support up to 64 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM split across two SODIMM modules. It also features a six-core AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 5675U Barcelo CPU, integrated Vega 7 graphics and a PCIe 4.0 SSD with 256 GB of storage.  

The hardware is good enough for office and business use, but we recommend upgrading to at least 16 GB of RAM for more demanding tasks. Other AMD models of the L14 G3 have CPUs with four to eight cores, whilst the Intel variants come with everything from a Core i3-1215U to Core i7-1260P.

Test conditions

On ThinkPads, Lenovo has integrated the performance modes into Windows power options. We used the high-performance profile and disabled auto mode when carrying out all performance-related benchmarks.

In "Best Performance" and "Better Performance" modes, the AMD processor initially drew 30 watts of power and then reduced its power usage to 25 watts after 40 seconds and 25 seconds respectively. In "More Battery Efficiency" mode, power consumption gradually dropped from 21 watts to 18 watts over a few minutes.

Processor

The 25-watt power limit is reasonable for the AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 5675U. The processor is able to deliver 30 per cent more sustained performance than the Intel Alder Lake CPU in the ThinkPad T16 (limited to 20 watts).

Interestingly, the new L14 has around the same CPU performance as its predecessor with an eight-core Ryzen CPU. But our database suggests you will get an approximately 25% performance gain with eight Cezanne/Barcelo U cores at the same power limits.

Thanks to the two copper heat pipes, temperatures only reached 75°C (167°F) over a prolonged period. In contrast, the Intel variants of the L14 G3 are only fitted with one heat pipe, similar to the ThinkPad T series. All the other devices in our comparison mostly delivered similar performance thanks to their six-core AMD CPU.

On battery, there is no drop in sustained performance. The 32-second initial boost to 30 watts is simply disabled (see power usage log and screenshots).

That said, we encountered a really annoying bug: every time after waking up from sleep mode, the CPU would linger around 500 to 800 MHz. This problem could only be resolved by restarting the laptop, which then caused the power limit to get stuck at 20 watts. We didn't really understand when and why we regained access to the full 25-watt power limit.

System performance

1x 8GB DDR4 3200 RAM module – single ranked and in single-channel configuration
1x 8GB DDR4 3200 RAM module – single ranked and in single-channel configuration

Based on our experience, the system performance is very fast. Apps and websites load without any delay, even when a 4K video is playing in the background. Despite the single-channel RAM, the synthetic benchmark results are on approximately the same level as those of the competitors and slightly better than the ThinkPad T16 with an Intel Alder Lake CPU. However, the Alder Lake processor had a considerable lead in web browsing benchmarks owing to its higher shot-term turbo boost.
