Lenovo V15 Gen 4 review – is AMD the way to go?

As one of the least expensive offerings from the manufacturer, the Lenovo V15 Gen 4 is poised to tackle the neverending critique of people like us. However, its simplicity and low price will attract significantly more customers, than its possible disadvantages ever would.

Today, we are going to review this laptop, putting its hardware through a bunch of tests. The unit we got in our office is the AMD version of the model. It can be found with either an Athlon Silver, Athlon Gold, Ryzen 3 7320U, or Ryzen 5 7520U. As you can tell, there is quite a difference between the lowest-tier, and the highest-tier option, which could be essential at the end of the day.

In addition to that, you will find a laptop with a 1080p display. Unfortunately, a TN option is inevitable at this price range, however, there is an IPS unit as well. If you can afford it, definitely go for the IPS option.

Of course, this is if we think you would have any reason to get this device in the first place. Let’s take a moment to look at the specs sheet before we pop its box open and see what we got inside.
