Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad Z16 G1 21D5S00T00

87.3% Lenovo ThinkPad Z16 G1 laptop review: Powerful AMD flagship with a hickup | Notebookcheck
A high quality, a high performance, and even relatively efficient with current AMD Ryzen CPUs and Radeon graphics - what could possibly go wrong? Quite a lot, actually. But it was really only one problem with the Lenovo ThinkPad Z16 G1, that created difficulties for our test evaluation.
78% Lenovo ThinkPad Z16 review: All-new ThinkPad tries to think different
Source: PC World English
Lenovo’s ThinkPad Z16 tries has some success in its effort to tweak the ThinkPad formula. The laptop is attractive, yet still tame, and material quality is on par with the best Windows competition. I also like the smooth, responsive haptic touchpad and the wide range of modern connectivity.Yet the Z16 doesn’t fix ThinkPad’s typical weakness: value. Starting around $1,550, and more typically near $1,700, the Z16 finds itself facing alternatives that have better performance or an improved display for the same price, or less. Lenovo’s own competition highlights this issue. The company’s new Slim 7, Yoga 7i, and Yoga 9i are a better value (and, yes, Lenovo has a 16-inch Slim 7). Competitor laptops like the Asus Vivobook Pro 16X also provide much better performance in this price range. Those looking for an elegant, durable laptop with a big screen and long battery life will like the Lenovo ThinkPad Z16. It is a good choice for day-to-day use. But if you want to run demanding apps, or enjoy entertainment, the Z16 falls behind the curve.

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, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. 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.


82.65%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
