Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad L380-20M5000WGE
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 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.

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.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
