Lenovo ThinkPad L460-20FVS01400 Notebook Review

 

Longer lasting. Lenovo's ThinkPad L460 does not offer many new features. The Skylake processors provide a bit more computing power, and the L440 clearly has a longer battery life. Unfortunately, Lenovo does not install a docking port in the L460 models...

matte IPS panel ; Full HD resolution ; fast SSD ; good battery life ; superb keyboard

dark screen ; fan whistles quietly ; fan management ; no docking port

MIL-SPEC durability ; Stellar keyboard ; Anti-glare display ; Reasonable pricing

Design may look fusty, to some ; No USB Type-C ports ; No keyboard backlighting

The Lenovo ThinkPad L460 is practically all steak, almost no sizzle. Design-conscious buyers and early adopters who have already begun to gather USB Type-C accessories will find it lacking in style and modern amenities. Office workers looking for a...
