The 2nd generation of the ThinkPad L15 is offered by Lenovo with processors from Intel and AMD. There are almost no differences in design and price, which is why it's worth taking a look at the details.

In our recently published review of the Lenovo ThinkPad L15 Gen 2, we were able to take a closer look at the configuration with the AMD Ryzen 5 5600U, 16 GB of RAM, a 512 GB SSD, as well as the integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega 7 graphics unit.

This offers enough performance for diverse applications in everyday office use, but graphics performance is only suitable for less demanding tasks. The latter can be improved a bit, though, since a second RAM module can be installed in the laptop thanks to the good maintenance options.

This results in a dual-channel configuration, which slightly increases the GPU performance. The optional WWAN is also already equipped with the corresponding antennas, so it can be installed afterwards as well. The SSD and the WLAN module can also be replaced.

While the system runs smoothly in everyday use, and office and Internet tasks can be carried out without issues, our endurance stress test reveals a drop in performance after a prolonged period of time. Nevertheless, this shouldn't play a major role in everyday use, since a load level like the one in our stress test shouldn't occur normally.

A disadvantage that AMD laptops have compared to their Intel counterparts is the lack of Thunderbolt 4 support. The Lenovo ThinkPad L15 Gen 2 can be charged via USB-C, and image output works as well, but very high data rates aren't offered.

The remaining features offered by the Lenovo ThinkPad L15 Gen 2 with an AMD processor can be found in our review.

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.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
