Lenovo ThinkBook 14 Gen 4 review – business in style

We can’t believe it has already been four years since Lenovo released the first of their “stylish” business laptop devices. Now, the subbrand is more widely recognized, and many people are preferring modern looks to the old-school ThinkPad vision.

The latest product to come to fruition is the Lenovo ThinkBook 14 Gen 4. It can be found in both AMD and Intel iterations. Interestingly, team Red “only” provided the refreshed Ryzen 5x25U chips, while the Intel model is equipped with an Alder Lake CPU. Furthermore, you get to choose between 15W TDPs and 28W ones.

As you can imagine, we chose Intel for our review. The more modern processor is not the only reason we did that. Naturally, the Intel-based device features one Thunderbolt 4 connector and supports Gen 4 SSDs, which would justify a higher price tag.

Regardless of your processor choice, there are four display options. All have a Full HD resolution, but one of them is a TN unit. It would be best to stay away from it. The three other panels are of IPS type, one of which supports 100% sRGB. Of the two that are left, one has touchscreen capabilities.

We might have presented it as a bit more confusing than it actually is. However, let’s start the review with the least confusing thing – the specs (and some talk about the design).
