Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s G4
Source: Laptop Media
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.

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.
