Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad Z16 G1 21D5S00T00
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.

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.
