Lenovo ThinkPad T470s – What is the best display option?

 

Agony of choice. We compare the displays for the new ThinkPad T470s. WQHD, Full HD or touchscreen – how does the choice influence the picture quality as well as the battery runtime?

Lenovo still equips expensive business laptops like the ThinkPad T470s with mediocre Full HD screens. There is a trend towards higher resolution panels (often with better characteristics), but there are much better Full HD panels on the market. This is...

Lenovo ThinkPad T470s (Core i7, WQHD) Laptop Review

 

High-end business. We review the top-tier configuration of the new Lenovo ThinkPad T470s. Besides a healthy amount of memory as well as storage and a new Kaby Lake processor, the Chinese manufacturer also implements a brighter WQHD panel. We are a bit...

light and sturdy case ; bright WQHD panel ; great keyboard ; numerous security features ; LTE integrated ; USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ; long battery runtime ; 3-year warranty

high temperatures ; limite CPU Turbo ; significantly reduced performance on battery power ; inconvenient position of the USB-C port ; high price

The ThinkPad T470s is one of the devices that Lenovo updated only a little this year. The previous T460s was already a very good business notebook, so this is not a big issue. The new ThinkPad T470s is still a good business notebook with a light as...

Lenovo ThinkPad T470 Review: All Business

 

The ThinkPad T470 is very much a ThinkPad: that means a durable design with proven reliability. There's a lighting fast PCIe SSD under the hood, an industry-leading keyboard, and one of the best batteries we've seen on a business notebook.

Fantastic Keyboard ; Mindblowing battery life ; Strong performance

Dim display ; Poor sound quality

Honestly, there’s very little to nitpick when it comes to the Lenovo ThinkPad T470. Sure the display is a bit dimmer than we would have liked and the audio quality can produce a tinny sound, but the laptop’s focus isn’t multimedia. This is an...

Lenovo Thinkpad T470s Review

 

This premium 14-inch business notebook offers a good mix of business-friendly features and battery life, but is it outdone by Lenovo's own ThinkPad X1 Carbon (5th generation/2017)?

Competitively priced ; Excellent keyboard and touch pad/pointing stick ; Supports snap-in docking solutions ; Good IPS screen

Chassis could feel more solid ; Slightly larger than previous generation model

The ThinkPad T470s is an upgrade over the outgoing ThinkPad T460s, and a solid competitor to the Dell Latitude 14 7000 (7480). It combines a healthy mix of business-friendly features, including a good screen, first-class input devices, docking...

Lenovo ThinkPad T470s Review

 

Light, slim and packed with ports, Lenovo's ThinkPad T470s ($1,124 to start; models tested range up to $2,102.99) offers the strong performance, great keyboard and overall versatility of Lenovo's popular ThinkPad T470, but it weighs a much lighter 2.9...

Great keyboard; Little bloatware; Solid performance; Thin and light

Below-average battery life; Poor screens on lower-end models

The Lenovo ThinkPad T470s is a thin computer with strong performance and a wonderful keyboard, but competitors offer lower weight or longer battery life.
