Students or business users who want something more professional than an IdeaPad without needing to spend an arm or a leg for a "proper" ThinkPad model can consider the Lenovo ThinkBook series instead.
Allen Ngo,

Lenovo is currently running a sale on its latest ThinkBook 14 G3 laptop designed for small businesses or prosumer users. To see the final price of $513 USD, users must apply the two coupon codes 'MERRYSAVING' and 'CLEAR10' at checkout. The configuration in question is notable for its Ryzen 5 5500U processor which is comparable to even the fastest 11th gen Intel Core i7 U-series CPU available when it comes to raw multi-thread performance.

Other than the AMD CPU, the deal also comes with a 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSD and a 300-nit 14-inch 1080p IPS display. Keep in mind that there is no Thunderbolt support and the limited 8 GB of RAM is soldered. Thankfully, RAM is still upgradeable as the there is an open SODIMM slot to accompany the soldered modules.

Though we've yet to review the ThinkBook 14 G3, we still recommend checking out our review on the older ThinkBook 14 G2 since the G3 utilizes the exact same chassis design and physical features as the G2.

  • 6-core AMD Ryzen 5 5500U CPU
  • 8 GB DDR 4 3200 MHz (soldered) + 1 open SODIMM expansion slot
  • 512 GB PCIe SSD
  • 14-inch FHD IPS display, 300 nits
  • Backlit keyboard
  • Wi-Fi 5 + Bluetooth 5
  • ~1.5 kg
  • 17.9 x 323 x 218 mm

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
