Lenovo has definitely put a lot of time and effort into this laptop. It has one of the best-sounding speakers out there and looks super industrial – as a ThinkPad should look. It features a great keyboard and a decent touchpad, which rounds up a very appealing input device combo. This laptop’s 90Wh battery is good for up to 14 hours of Web browsing, or around 10 hours of video playback. Keep in mind that the hardware will eat through it a lot quicker if you intend to do some productivity tasks, and you will want to bring a charger on such occasions. Speaking of the hardware, short tasks are no issue for the Core i7-11800H we had in our unit. It is under extreme workload scenarios that the cooling crumbles under the heat-pumping Tiger Lake H45 chips. With that said, it can still maintain a frequency higher than 3.00 GHz, which is good. As for the graphics, well, you get what you expect from a 60W RTX 3050 Ti. It is not very competitive when put against a better-cooled gaming device like the Dell G5 5511, especially considering high-resolution gaming.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
