Lenovo ThinkPad T460s-20F9003SGE

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.

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.

The base-model ThinkPad T460 comes with Windows 10 Home edition, but we suspect most business buyers will step up to the Pro version for just $30 more. If you’re still enamored with Windows 7, you can opt for that (well, it’s pre-installed, and can be resurrected via the Windows 10 Pro “downgrade”), but that rollback will cost you $70. Go figure.

Like a pair of Air Jordans on an NBA player, the ThinkPad T460 is a professional tool that will help you soar. The laptop's deep key travel makes it easy to type fast and accurately, while its long endurance helps you work for hours without worrying about running out of juice.

Comment

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, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. 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.

Intel Core i5:

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.Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

6600U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.
