Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad L380-20M5000WGE

86.8% Lenovo ThinkPad L380 (i5-8250U, UHD620) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Small business all-rounder. The ThinkPad L380 is Lenovo's alternative for those users who don't get much out of a business convertible, but do not want to go without the design and features of the L380 Yoga. In addition, there is also a display that is free from flickering. Our test review will show whether the performance of the 13-inch notebook can also keep up with the competition.
Lenovo ThinkPad L380 review – good but lacks some boldness
Source: Laptop Media English
Lenovo has a significant presence in the business devices segment. And they have some pretty good devices there. However, the ThinkPad L380 is not one of the best they have in the 13-inch sector. Especially given the strong Latitude line up of Dell and the ProBooks of HP. L380’s drawbacks are mostly caused by the conservative way its cooling is designed – both from a hardware and software perspective. Nonetheless, the laptop is quiet and relatively cool all the time, thus enabling use in libraries and schools. Moreover, maintaining low temperatures is key for the longevity of the product.

85% Lenovo ThinkPad L380 Yoga review: When hardware gets down to business
Source: Neowin English
At the end of the day, the pricing of the ThinkPad L380 Yoga does make it a value proposition worth considering for both individuals and businesses compared to the ThinkPad X1 Yoga at just under half the price of the latter. As such, it's hard to look past the L380 Yoga if the vast majority of what you do on a computer sits within the realm of productivity-oriented tasks.

The Lenovo ThinkPad L380 Yoga is a 2-in-1 convertible laptop aimed at business users (enterprise or SMB). It was created with the idea of bringing ThinkPad features such as comfort, durability, and IT-friendliness at a much lower price point. Can Lenovo scale down the price, and still make this a worthy ThinkPad? Let’s find out.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


80.45%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
