Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad T495s-20QKS01E00
The ThinkPad T495s with the Ryzen 7 Pro 3700U is a serious alternative to the Intel-based T490s. The price in particular makes the device very interesting, since there are not many compromises compared to the Intel model.
Having laid the foundation with award-winning Ryzen desktop processors, it was only a matter of time until AMD made inroads into a laptop market typically dominated by rival Intel. We'd encourage Lenovo to add a WQHD display option, but for AMD fans and prosumers in general, the ThinkPad T495s is a noteworthy laptop that suggests a bright future for mobile Ryzen CPUs.
