As a work laptop, the ThinkPad T470s might just strike an ideal balance for many mainstream users. However, starting at $975 and for $1319 or so as tested, this is a premium ThinkPad model with a price tag to go with it. Great performance and excellent battery life are what many are looking for, followed by light weight, a decent display and ample IO connectivity options.

The T470s comes with Windows 10 Home by default, or you can step up to Windows 10 Pro, as on our tested machine, for $30. All models come with what Microsoft calls "Windows 10 Signature Edition," a clean build of Windows with no trialware, third-party AV packages, unwanted toolbars, or other utilities. This helps speed bootup and also makes it easier for IT departments tasked with rolling out laptops to end users. The ThinkPad T470s is backed by a one-year parts-and-labor warranty with carry-in or depot service.
