In the laptop market, Lenovo is on all fronts with a catalog filled with 2-in-1 laptops, gaming configurations and ultrabooks like this ThinkPad P14s Gen 2. The latter is among the most powerful machines on the market. Chinese manufacturer and yet it is half price on its official website, going from 1,379 euros to 699 euros.
Formerly owned by the multinational IBM, the ThinkPads now belong to Lenovo but have kept their reputation as a very mobile, very light and above all very resistant workstation. The P series models are particularly recommendable given that they are at the very top of the range, which is the case with this ThinkPad P14s, the second generation of which is currently half price in the official store.
The Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 2 in a nutshell
A compact, light and resistant chassis A powerful Ryzen 7 PRO processor Good autonomy
Instead of the usual 1,379 euros, the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 2 is now available on sale at 699 euros in the official store.
A portable PC that will follow you everywhere
It may be thin, but the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 2 is much stronger than most laptops on the market, and for good reason, it has been tested according to a dozen military standards for ruggedness. Thanks to this, it will be able to follow you everywhere, in environments with extreme temperatures or very humid. This does not prevent it from being particularly light, and therefore mobile, since it does not even weigh 1.5 kg. Finally, this chassis is decked out with generous connectivity.
On this configuration, the 14-inch screen is an IPS-LCD panel in Full HD definition (1920 x 1080 pixels), it has received an anti-reflective treatment to be readable even in direct sunlight and the brightness rises up to 300 cd/m² depending on the manufacturer. Also note that this ultrabook can be configured with a 4K screen (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) and higher brightness for more vibrant images. On the other hand, this configuration in Full HD has the merit of having a better autonomy.
Ryzen 7 PRO adapts to all tasks
Inside the beast we find a Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U processor with 8 cores and 16 threads with a base frequency of 1.9 GHz and 4.4 GHz in turbo boost mode. This processor is supported by 16 GB of DDR4 RAM, knowing that there is another SO-DIMM slot capable of accommodating a DDR4 RAM module of up to 32 GB. Day-to-day performance is fluid and you won’t suffer from any slowdowns, thanks in part to the 512 GB M.2 SSD.
The Ryzen 7 PRO is accompanied by a dedicated graphics card, an AMD Radeon, which will be able to keep up with the pace to carry out graphic work such as editing but which will have much more difficulty in gaming. The heating is controlled and with regard to autonomy, the 50 Wh battery is capable of holding ten hours in this configuration with the screen in Full HD. Which is good enough for a day’s work.
