The ThinkPad L15 Gen 1 AMD is the direct successor to last year's ThinkPad L590. The affordable office laptop is not an all-rounder but a laptop that focuses on the essentials instead. We were particularly impressed by the high-quality workmanship, the great keyboard, and the display that is second to none - at least in comparison to similar business laptops. The display doesn't rely on pulse width modulation to regulate brightness and achieves a high contrast thanks to its excellent black level. The keyboard convinces with its clear pressure point and feels almost as precise as the keyboards on some high-end business laptops.

The Ryzen 7 Pro 4750U provides a substantial boost in system and graphics performance compared to the Intel competition. Since the Pro version of the Ryzen processor not only offers some hardware security features but can also handle multiple threads per core simultaneously, the ThinkPad L15 can also beat most Ryzen 7 4700U competitors in multi-thread benchmarks. The built-in Western Digital SSD delivered good results in the test too.

A disadvantage of our test configuration was the single-channel memory that was used. The free RAM slot inside the case could have been used to fully exploit the potential system performance and to optimally utilize the performance capabilities of the integrated Radeon Vega RX 7. This is noticeable in terms of battery life: Although the 45 Wh battery is not exactly large, other laptops with the same battery capacity sometimes last much longer.

Even in my youth I was already very enthusiastic about technology, and as a result I started building PCs, optimizing them, and writing programs while I was still in school. When dealing with the inevitable hardware and software problems associated with computers, I was always relentless in my search for the necessary solutions. The compact forms of laptops and smartphones introduced further challenges in this regard. In my reviews for Notebookcheck I try to communicate as objectively as possible how well a device copes with these hurdles.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
