Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad L390-20NR0013GE

88.4% Lenovo ThinkPad L390 (i5-8265U, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Ultrathin ThinkPads like the X1 Carbon or its bigger multimedia cousin ThinkPad X1 Extreme offer an extremely high quality for an equally high price. The ThinkPad L390, a compact 13.3-inch laptop, proves that a more affordable device can still deliver most of the desired ThinkPad qualities as well.
Lenovo ThinkPad L390 review – filling the gaps between budget and premium
Source: Laptop Media English
As we mentioned at the beginning of this review, it is hard to justify a device that fits an almost invisible gap. We are referring to the one between the E-series of Lenovo’s ThinkPads and their T-series. So, this time, to justify what we just said, let’s start with the drawbacks. First, this laptop is not very suitable for extreme workloads.

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

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.
