88.5% Lenovo ThinkPad T14 G4 Intel Laptop Review: Raptor Lake update for the T series | Notebookcheck
The 2023 version of the Lenovo ThinkPad T14 uses Intel CPUs of the Raptor Lake series. With the new CPUs, the power usage seems to be lower compared to the predecessor, but apart from this, the Lenovo ThinkPad T14 Gen 4 Intel does not seem like a big upgrade.

Lenovo ThinkPad T14 Gen 4 review – another quiet and powerful business notebook
Source: Laptop Media English
The Lenovo ThinkPad T14 Gen 4 is a solid machine that is also portable and light. At the same time, the performance is always there when you need it. The cooling doesn’t look impressive at all but the CPU can maintain a high P and E core clock in short and medium loads. The frequencies are also good even in longer stress no matter the 21W power limit. Comfort-wise, all looks great. The fan is almost quiet and the keyboard will not burn your fingers when the processor is pounded with heavy loads. The 16:10 1200p IPS display (CSOT MNE007JA1-1 (LEN403A)) impresses with a 99% sRGB coverage, very good contrast ratio, and superb color accuracy with the aid of our “Design and Gaming” profile. The display is also PWM-free which is a must for a laptop that is meant for work. All this means you can use the notebook for color-sensitive tasks. The device is light – the maximum possible weight is 1.42kg. The profile is 17.9 mm so this fella can fit in most suitcases effortlessly. The charger weighs almost nothing so you can put it in one of your pockets.

90.4% Lenovo ThinkPad T14 G4 AMD Laptop Review: Ryzen power in the compact ThinkPad | Notebookcheck
The ThinkPad T series is one of the most important parts of Lenovo's enterprise PC portfolio. Corporate purchasers get the choice: AMD or Intel for their client. There are arguments for both - with efficiency being on the side of the ThinkPad T14 Gen 4 AMD.

 

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.

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.
