Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 4 review – portable and loaded with power and security features
Source: Laptop Media English
The Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 4 is a balanced device. It’s not a 3 kg powerhouse but its performance is very good given the low weight and the thin profile. Yes, portability is one of the biggest advantages of this machine. At the same time, the P-series CPU can sustain a 32W power limit and decent P and E core clocks under heavy stress. In short and medium loads, these frequencies are higher which results in fast responsiveness for everyday tasks. The comfort during load is good, the single fan isn’t too loud when the CPU is at max load. If not, the notebook is definitely quieter. The base isn’t scorching hot even during gaming – it just feels warm to the touch. Sure, this is a workstation, but the optional dedicated NVIDIA RTX A500 (Laptop, 30W) is fast enough for playing new games on Medium or maybe High settings. The input devices are pleasant.

87.8% Lenovo ThinkPad P14s G4 AMD review: fast, portable, straightforward | Notebookcheck
No glamour, no pomp: Lenovo's small workstation concentrates on its system performance, which is considerable thanks to its AMD Radeon 780M GPU. Its equally exceptional efficiency is reflected in the excellent battery life. All would be well if it weren't for a few unnecessary weaknesses.
Lenovo’S Potent Thinkpad P14S Gen 4 Isn’T Just For The Pros
Source: USA Today English
The ThinkPad P14s Gen 4 is a great laptop for getting work done. It comes well-equipped for productivity with a display that’s exceptionally easy to see in a wide variety of conditions, both dark and bright. The hardware inside zips along, easily handling everyday computing tasks and even muscling through some heavier lifts. Using the computer is all the more enjoyable thanks to an excellent keyboard that regular typists will love. Being a work machine, there’s a little to be desired design-wise. While recent consumer machines have gotten a glow-up, the ThinkPad P14s Gen 4 still looks fairly utilitarian, is kind of thick, and has chunky bezels around the display (at least the top bezel gives you an IR webcam).

90% Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 4 Review
Source: Think Computers English
I’ve been using the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 4 as my main laptop for the past few weeks and I’ve really enjoyed it. One of the biggest things I was worried about was how heavy it was going to be compared to my thin and light laptop that is usually my daily driver. Being just under 3lbs it didn’t really add much extra weight or bulk to my backpack and the 100W power adapter is quite small. The best part of using a laptop like this over something like a more mainstream laptop is the added power you get. First you have the Intel Core i7-1370P vPro processor which handled everything I threw at it from normal every day things like web browsing to more intensive tasks like video editing. On top of that you do get dedicated graphics from NVIDIA’s RTX A500 laptop GPU. Having dedicated graphics takes the load off of your CPU for more GPU-intensive tasks and will speed up things like encoding or rendering.

Comment

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA RTX A500 Laptop GPU: Mid-range professional laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA106 chip with 2,048 CUDA cores. Slower than the consumer GeForce GTX 3050 with certified drivers. Available in different performance variants ranging from 20 - 60 W TGP (max. power consumption).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

AMD Radeon 780M: Integrated graphics card in the Ryzen 7040 mobile series APUs based on the RDNA3 architecture with 12 CUs (= 768 shaders) and a clock speed of up to 3 GHz.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Raptor Lake-P:

i5-1340P: Raptor Lake-P based CPU with a TDP of 28 Watt. Offers 4 performance cores and 8 efficiency cores and therefore 16 threads.

i7-1370P: The high-end Alder Lake-P CPU featuring 6 performance cores and 8 efficient cores. This i7 is designed for use in ultra-light laptops; its performance cores feature the thread-doubling Hyper-Threading technology for whopping 20 threads in total. The CPU runs at upd to 5.2 GHz and has the "Enterprise" tier vPro feature set. Core i7-1370P has a base power of 28 W and the 96 EU Iris Xe iGPU.

AMD Phoenix (Zen 4, Ryzen 7040):

R7 PRO 7840U: High-End mobile 8-core processor based on the Zen 4 architecture. The CPU cores clock at up to 5.1 GHz and execute 16 threads simultaneously. Integrates an XDNA Ai-Engine. The TDP is configurable between 35 and 54 Watt. Compared to the consumer Ryzen 7 7840U, the PRO models offer additional security, manageability, and reliability features designed for professional users and workstation environments.

14.00:

14 inch display size represents a middle ground between the small subnotebook formats and the screens of the standard 15 inch laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, provides good resolutions with usable detail sizes, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact. 

In the past, 14-inch devices were very rare, but now they are the standard for laptops after the 15-inchers.

88.9%: This is an above-average rating. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that about one fifth of all tested models receive a better rating.
