Lenovo ThinkPad L14 & L15: New budget enterprise models with AMD Ryzen Pro 4000
Lenovo redesigns its affordable enterprise series, the ThinkPad L series. The new 2020 models ThinkPad L14 and ThinkPad L15 are therefore completely revamped compared to their predecessors. They also are the first affordable enterprise models from Lenovo with the Ryzen Pro 4000 CPUs.

The Lenovo ThinkPad L series is often overlooked. No big wonder: The affordable budget models are dependable machines, but not nearly as sophisticated as the more expensive T series. And the ThinkPad E series is even more affordable and offers more GPU performance and more fashionable chassis-material choices like Aluminum lids. This lack of attractiveness of the ThinkPad L series is no coincidence though, as it purely targets enterprise, government and education users. That is why it offers the same business options (LTE, mechanical docking, Smartcard reader) as the more expensive T series, just in a thicker, less expensive plastic package.

The 2020 ThinkPad L series adopts the same new naming scheme as the new T & X series. Last years Lenovo ThinkPad L490 is replaced by the ThinkPad L14 and the bigger ThinkPad L590 makes way for the ThinkPad L15. As with all 2020 ThinkPads, the new models include Intel Comet Lake processors with vPro. However, for the first time in the history of the ThinkPad L series, ThinkPad L14 and L15 will also feature AMD CPUs in the form of the new AMD Ryzen Pro 4000 line of processors.

That is not the only thing new about these devices: Both are thinner and lighter redesigns compared to their predecessors. They also include Wi-Fi 6 as well as optionally available, brighter On-Cell-Touch displays.

ThinkPad L14 and ThinkPad L15 will be available in the second quarter of 2020. Both have a starting price of $649.

In 2010 I started to get more and more involved with technology, especially notebooks have been my passion ever since. Of course I came across the detailed tests of Notebookcheck very quickly. With time I learned more and more about notebooks and started writing small reviews about notebooks in forums and blog pages. To earn some extra money during my studies I turned my hobby into my profession and joined the team of Notebookcheck in 2016. My personal interest is especially in business notebooks.
