Lenovo's V series represents its entry level series into the business laptop segment. Here you can find simple office laptops that do not strain your budget too much and could therefore be interesting for private as well as business users. It should be clear that you cannot expect high-quality case materials here. Lenovo uses a dark grey (Iron Grey) plastic case with smooth surfaces.

At a price of barely 600 Euros (~$729), the configuration that we tested belongs to the more affordable V17 models. A Core i3-1005G1 processor, 8 GB of working memory (dual-channel mode; 4 GB module + 4 GB onboard), and a 256-GB NVMe SSD are sufficient for office and Internet operation. Overall, the 17.3-inch laptop produces only little noise, and there is hardly any heat development.

Higher-priced models are also available with Core i5 and Core i7 processors. In addition, Lenovo offers models with a dedicated GeForce MX330 graphics core. However, Lenovo limits the maximum available amount of working memory to 12 GB. But this might be a marketing decision, and there are no technical reasons for this limit. The device also supports larger amounts of memory - we tried it. You can expand the memory up to 36 GB.

The display (FHD, IPS) scores with stable viewing angles, a matte surface, a good color reproduction, and good color space coverage. The brightness and contrast fulfill the requirements, and a positive aspect of the display is its lack of PWM flickering.

You can find additional information and many benchmark results in our review of the Lenovo V17-IIL (82GX008TGE).
