Lenovo ThinkPad L15 G2: The affordable Tiger Lake model is completely sufficient

Affordable with a good performance: the Lenovo ThinkPad L15 G2
Affordable with a good performance: the Lenovo ThinkPad L15 G2
Those who don't want to spend a lot of money for their work laptop can perhaps find the ideal laptop in the ThinkPad L15 G2 with Intel's Core i3 Tiger Lake CPU.
Mike Wobker (translated by Mark Riege), 🇩🇪

For less than 600 Euros (~$680), Lenovo equips the ThinkPad L15 G2 with an Intel Core i3-1115G4, 8 GB of RAM, and a 256-GB SSD. The image content is handled by the internal Intel UHD Graphics Xe G4 48EUs graphics unit.

In our test, this configuration is able to ensure a smooth system operation and run office programs and the Internet browser without any trouble. In combination with the good input devices, this enables very comfortable working with the laptop.

However, since the performance of the graphics unit depends on the 8 GB working memory that only runs in single-channel mode, the performance is slightly below average in this area.

Good maintenance but a mediocre battery life

However, the good maintenance options allow you to easily insert a second RAM module into the ThinkPad L15 G2, which will cause the working memory to run in dual-channel mode and also increase the graphics performance.

In addition to the RAM, you can also replace the SSD and the WLAN module. There is also a free M.2 slot for the optional WWAN, but the antennas that are necessary to operate this are not prepared yet.

While the display delivers average values in most areas according to our measurements, we see some room for improvement in the battery life. With a capacity of 45 Wh, it achieves a battery life of slightly longer than 6 hours in our realistic WLAN test. Similarly equipped competitors can do better here.

I carried out my first IT experiments with a 386-based system and a whole 4 MB RAM. This was followed by work on various PCs and laptops that I maintained and repaired for friends and acquaintances. After training to become a Telecommunications Systems Technician and gaining a few years of experience, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. Currently, I pursue my fascination for IT, technology, and mobile devices by writing reviews and articles for Notebookcheck. I have also worked for Gamestar, Netzwelt, and Golem, among others.
