Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad T460s-20F9003SGE

87.4% Lenovo ThinkPad T460s (Core i5, Full HD) Ultrabook Review | Notebookcheck
Also a success with the base specs? After the high-end version of the ThinkPad T460s could already convince us, we now have a look at the base configuration. The Full HD panel in particular, however, cannot fulfill the high expectations.

The ThinkPad T460s offers a strong combination of performance, usability and portability, thanks to its svelte chassis, accurate screen and comfortable touchpad. However, a relatively stiff keyboard (for a ThinkPad) and below-average battery life prevent it from surpassing its predecessor and becoming our favorite business laptop.

As is appropriate for a business notebook, Lenovo keeps bloatware to a minimum. You get the apps and utilities that ship with Windows 10 Pro, plus Lenovo’s own management utilities, and that's just about it. (All that irked us was a McAfee LiveSafe Internet Security trial.)

Lenovo once again managed to deliver a premium 14-inch business laptop by which most others will be judged. Unfortunately, the ThinkPad T460s doesn’t completely leapfrog its predecessor … and that is a potential problem for customers. Yes, the “road warriors” who frequently depend on ThinkPads appreciate thinner and lighter notebooks. Despite that fact, we doubt those same business travelers appreciate loosing the option to keep their notebooks running for an extra four hours or more.

Comment

Model: The Lenovo T460s-20F9003SGE is an ultrabook packed with features, feather-light and suitable for business users that like to travel light and be connected at all times as it fits perfectly into the backpack, briefcase or tote. The laptop has the same classy and simple matte design similar to most of other business laptops from Lenovo and has passed durability tests for withstanding dings, extreme temperatures, high altitudes, humidity and vibrations with the help of its carbon-fibre-reinforced lid and magnesium chassis. The Windows 10 Pro system comes with a 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5-6200U processor, an Intel HD Graphics 520 graphic card and a 256 GB Solid State Drive.

Its 14 inch Full HD IPS anti-Glare touchscreen provides sharp images, wide viewing angles and accurate colors. The colors look realistic and not overly rich but the downside is that the display is fairly dim. This T460s model has 4 GB of DDR4 RAM. The keyboard is spill resistant but feels a little stiff. However, it still provides an above-average typing experience. There is a 4-in-1 card reader to compensate for the non-existent DVD burner. The laptop has two USB 3.0 ports, an Ethernet connector, a Kensington lock slot, an HDMI port, a Mini-Display port, a headphone jack and a 720P HD webcam. It is lightweight at only 1.4 kg and its battery life only lasted up to 7 hours and 21 minutes during continuous web browsing via WiFi.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
6200U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
14":

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.

1.37 kg:

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.


79.48%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
