Perhaps this was one of the most non-recommendable laptops we’ve tested. One of the main reasons for this is the performance. It is outperformed by the 14-inch version in some cases, the battery life was not stellar, and it gets pretty loud. You guess what? It is expensive too! Unfortunately, its memory doesn’t support ECC, which is a bummer. Ultimately, this is not a workstation, no matter how hard Lenovo tries to brand it as such. In our opinion, it is a business notebook. In fact, it does pretty well as such. The feature selection is not bad, with an IR face recognition scanner, and a fingerprint reader on the block. Lenovo ThinkPad P16s Gen 1’s IPS panel has a WUXGA resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and a good contrast ratio. It doesn’t use PWM for brightness adjustment, but unfortunately, the color coverage is quite low – 51% of sRGB. We also have to mention how portable this device is. Perhaps this is the greatest internal battle – portability versus performance. In this case, portability has one without giving the latter a chance. After all the laptop weighs less than 2.00 kilos, and has a profile of about 20mm. As we said, it would have been a good business machine. However, it is quite expensive, which makes some other products better overall offers. The Dell Latitude 15 5531 is one such example.

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.
