Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad L590-20Q70019GE
Lenovo's L-series is well-known for being a budget range of the company's ThinkPad offering, while also being excellent value for money. The focus for this review is the L590, a new 15.6-inch business laptop that has stellar input devices just like its predecessor.

Lenovo ThinkPad L590 is probably one of the greatest options for corporate users. It combines both reasonable pricing, relatively good performance, and most importantly – versatility. It has all of the needed security features like a fingerprint reader, face IR recognition. Sadly, the ThinkPad L590 doesn’t feature some of the premium Carbon fiber or magnesium materials of this device. Additionally, we noticed some annoying wobble in the middle of the base, which takes from the overall good experience from the keyboard and the touchpad. Another positive feature of the ThinkPad L590 is its battery life. Despite the battery pack is only 45Wh, which is usually insufficient for a 15-incher, we were able to extract more than 11 hours of Web browsing and just under 9 hours of video playback. Then, there comes the lack of Thunderbolt connectivity and the frustrating M.2 slot adapter.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
i5-8265U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
