Reviews for the Lenovo V15-IWL-81YE0005GE

Also, it was nice to see an SD card reader on it, as well as a dedicated RAM SODIMM slot, M.2 PCIe x4 support and a 2.5″ SATA drive bay. However, there is no USB Type-C to play with and its TN display is just terrible if you have to show someone your presentation. Typically for a TN panel, the viewing angles are horrendous, as is the contrast ratio. But at this price point, you are more or less left with no choice. If you are willing to save your piggy bank from its misery, you can go for the more professional HP ProBook 450 G6 or even the Lenovo ThinkPad E590.

i5-8265U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process).
