Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s-20UJS00K00
The ThinkPad T14s with the AMD Renoir processor offers much more performance and is also less expensive than the Intel version. But what about the power consumption and the battery runtime? We have a closer look at the differences of the two models.

Performance from this chip is phenomenal under sustained load, but in day-to-day use the target audience is unlikely to notice the difference compared to the latest Core i7-powered Dell XPS 13. And if you’re willing to switch allegiance from Windows, the M1 MacBook Pro (and even the cheaper Air) are faster still in optimised programs whilst being even sleeker. We also question this laptop’s value for money: a 256GB SSD at this price is positively stingy, and while the warranty lasts three years, it’s return-to-base rather than on-site. This leaves the ThinkPad T14s in the uncomfortable middle ground, unable to lift itself away from the new MacBooks and its corporate rivals.

Considering the price of the laptop, and the performance it offers, it is probably one of the best business laptops for high-workload scenarios. Not only does it offer supreme power, but it also has quite a lot of goodies in terms of security. You get a dedicated TPM chip onboard, the AMD Memory Guard technology, dual biometric authentication (thanks to the IR face recognition, and the fingerprint reader, both of which work extremely well).

Lenovo’s ThinkPad T-lineup is a great thin business laptop and with the addition of AMD’s Ryzen PRO chipsets, businesses looking to skimp a few pennies are now being served options that are almost $500 less expensive than its Dell competitor.

The ThinkPad T14s flirts with a four-and-a-half-star rating and an Editors' Choice nod, missing those marks mainly due to Lenovo's wrongheaded decision to deny AMD customers a 4K screen option (and the fact that we like to see a Thunderbolt 3 port in an over-$1,000 notebook). But if you're content with a 1080p display, the T14s is a sensational business laptop—lighter, faster, and $493 cheaper as tested than the Dell Latitude 7410 (though that comparison is a bit flawed, since the Dell has a gorgeous 4K display), and a genuine, more affordable alternative to the super-stellar ThinkPad X1 Carbon. Its Ryzen 7 Pro CPU is a monster, delivering near-mobile-workstation levels of raw multithreaded performance, and its engineering is faultless.

The 2.8 lb / 1.27 kg ThinkPad T14s is the more affordable counterpart to the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. It has a 12.95mm matte black magnesium alloy shell, the usual excellent ThinkPad keyboard and is available with a variety of displays. You can get it with AMD Ryzen 5 Pro (6-core) and Ryzen 7 Pro (8-core) CPUs for a significant performance boost, or with Intel 10th gen Comet Lake 4-core CPUs for Thunderbolt 3 support. The laptop has ample ports, optional 4G LTE WWAN, a fingerprint scanner, Windows Hello IR camera and strong battery life.

If only it came with a UHD display. Seriously, I get that there are some advantages to choosing Intel, and others to choosing AMD. In terms of what the platform offers, I think there are more advantages from AMD, although you do get Thunderbolt from Intel. What I don't care for is OEMs creating their own value propositions for Intel by only offering certain configurations with an Intel processor. It's not cool.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.
In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.
From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.
83.88%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
