As it happens, Lenovo was right – this notebook provides no compromises when it comes to performance. And we are talking about the limited Intel version, which only comes with a maximum of 4 cores and 8 threads. Just imagine what you get if you opt for the AMD Ryzen 7 4750 PRO, which is double the cores and threads.

Lenovo's ThinkPad L14 is the entry point into the ThinkPad line. It looks like its more expensive siblings but has a less premium build.

The Lenovo ThinkPad L14 doesn’t have a lot of negative qualities but the severity of them, such as its heavy weight or poor colour fidelity, might be considered a dealbreaker to some. Moreover, we believe that in this price bracket, Lenovo could have done better with the L14’s battery.
