Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad T470-20HD002HGE
New revision of the business classic. The ThinkPads from the T-series represent typical business notebooks for many users. Lenovo does not only equip the new T470 with modern processors and ports, but also a completely new chassis. Update: Luminance on battery power

At the end of the day, the Lenovo Thinkpad T470 is great for someone who is not used to a touch screen device like a Surface Pro 4. It packs incredible specs, great battery life, and access to lots of ports. For me, it tried to replace my Surface Pro 4, but fell short because of the display and lack of touch screen and support for digital pens. That’s not to say that it isn’t worth the price, though, as the business-oriented audience for this laptop will definitely enjoy the caveats that come with an all-day battery life, the 7th generation Intel Core i5 processor, and a beautiful keyboard and trackpad.

The Lenovo ThinkPad T470 is an excellent business notebook as long as you don’t mind the price tag on this thing. In any case, you get a lot in return – exceptional build quality, portability, reliability, overall great input devices, a wide range of I/O even for a 14-inch device and stable cooling system that also turns out to be pretty silent even under heavy workload. There’s no high-pitch sound coming from the fan.

Honestly, there’s very little to nitpick when it comes to the Lenovo ThinkPad T470. Sure the display is a bit dimmer than we would have liked and the audio quality can produce a tinny sound, but the laptop’s focus isn’t multimedia. This is an enterprise laptop, and it delivers on the core functionality exceptionally well. The T470 has a simple durable design, that will stand up to wear and tear, with built-in security options, and improved accessibility over the T460. There’s a wide selection of ports for connectivity including Thunderbolt 3, strong performance with an ultra fast PCIe SSD. Finally, there’s the keyboard and battery that stand atop the class.

It's not a perfect laptop -- the screen could be a lot brighter and the palm rest ought to be soft-touch -- but the ThinkPad T470 offers the best combination of performance, durability, flexibility and endurance of any business laptop.
