In todays world a laptop is a must have for any sort of productivity or you can have something powerful like a desktop that can perform heavy duty work. Getting the Lenovo ThinkBook 15 for a couple of weeks, give me an interesting perspective of the world Lenovo and how the eco-system works and operates. For something who has been using Apple for a long time I didn’t struggle to get set up and I had to set up a Lenovo account which is very similar to the icloud account. With that being done you are able to use your logins that you have for Microsoft office and log into applications such as word, powerpoint etc.
These are the features that stood out for me, the Lenovo ThinkBook15 is equipped with up to 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processing and Windows 10 Pro, the ThinkBook 15 gives you seamless high performance and responsiveness—wherever you are. Just 18.9mm (0.74″) thin, this stylish business laptop boasts a modern mineral grey finish. To help make your life easier, the ThinkBook 15 has a number of optional features. With Intel® Optane™ memory or a solid-state drive, everything runs far faster. With an integrated fingerprint reader on the Smart Power Button, you can log in or boot up instantly. And with our IT support services, you can enjoy the extra peace of mind, too. When it comes to screen time the ThinkBook 15 has narrow bezels and an 83% screen-to-body ratio, you can focus more on the stunning 15.6-inch FHD display. You’ll also get to experience rich, clear sound through two Dolby Audio™ speakers. And if you work with complex visuals or like to game in your downtime, go with the discrete graphics card option.
With a lot of people working from home and using Skype and Zoom to have meetings, video calls are a snap thanks to the dual-array Skype-certified mic and built-in speakers. And with the USB 3.1 (Gen2, Type-C) port, data transfers are lightning quick, and large media files load in no time. When it comes to connection, the USB 3.1 port with an always-on function can recharge other devices—even if your ThinkBook is turned off. The USB 2.0 port is within a compartment that can store a wireless mouse dongle (sold separately) to prevent it from getting lost or damaged. And for even faster Internet speeds when you’re on the road, you can opt for WiFi 6. Also, ThinkBook 15 has ThinkShutter, so you can physically close your webcam. In addition, each ThinkBook undergoes durability and reliability tests to ensure it can withstand knocks, drops, spills, dust, and extreme temperatures.
