Lenovo ThinkPad E470 (HD-Display, HD 620) Laptop Review

 

Display from the Stone Age. Lenovo's ThinkPad E470 is an affordable ThinkPad with its largest user base among students and home office users. We have already reviewed this laptop in review earlier this year. However today we are reviewing a model with...

decent case ; comfortable input devices ; decent application performance ; fast Wi-Fi connection ; quiet and cool even under load ; improved battery life

no USB Type-C ; only 12 months warranty ; abysmal TN HD display with disgraceful viewing angles ; reduced CPU performance on battery ; low-frequency PWM flickering at brightness levels of less than 90 %

The bottom line is that the E470 is an affordable business notebook, but we cannot recommend this particular configuration that we have reviewed today. We cannot recommend the particular E470 model in review due to its unbalanced configuration and its...

Lenovo ThinkPad E470 (Core i5, GeForce 940MX) Notebook Review

 

Small Update, Big Impact? The ThinkPad E470 is the latest addition to the popular Lenovo business series. This entry-level model of the E-series uses a 7th generation Intel Core processor and promises more performance and battery life. All of this for...

good workmanship quality ; great keyboard ; additional Trackpoint ; IPS display with stable viewing angles ; high application performance ; fast WLAN connection ; silent and cool in everyday use ; decent battery life ; attractive price

relatively thick and heavy ; meager connectivity ; limited upgrade options ; only 12 months warranty

This year, Lenovo has stuck with the previous design of the E400 series and upgraded some aspects. The laptop has great workmanship, input devices and well-managed noise and heat emissions. Furthermore, our test configuration included a Core i5...

Tela da Idade da Pedra. O Lenovo ThinkPad E470 é um ThinkPad acessível com sua extensa base de usuários entre estudantes e usuários home office. Já analisamos este portátil anteriormente este ano. No entanto hoje estamos analisando um modelo com...

Carcaça decente ; Dispositivos de entrada confortáveis ; Desempenho decente de aplicativos ; Conexão Wi-Fi veloz ; Silencioso e frio inclusive sob uso intenso ; Duração da bateria melhorada

Sem USB Tipo C ; Apenas 12 meses de garantia ; Tela TN horrível com ângulos de visão medíocres ; Desempenho reduzido da CPU com a bateria ; Flickering PWM de baixa frequência com níveis de brilho de menos de 90 %

A conclusão é que o E470 é um portátil empresarial acessível, mas não podemos recomendar esta configuração particular que analisamos hoje.

Kort testrapport Lenovo ThinkPad E470 (HD-Display, HD 620) Laptop

 

Beeldscherm uit het Stenen Tijdperk. Lenovo's ThinkPad E470 is een betaalbare ThinkPad gericht op studenten en zakelijke thuisgebruikers. We hebben dit model eerder dit jaar al getest, maar deze keer hebben we slechtere hardware om te laten zien waarom...

Degelijke behuizing ; Comfortabele invoerapparaten ; Degelijke applicatieprestaties ; Snelle Wi-Fi verbinding ; Stil en koel, ook onder belasting ; Verbeterde batterijlevensduur

Geen USB Type-C ; Slechts 12 maanden garantie ; Vreselijk TN HD beeldscherm met uitermate kleine kijkhoeken ; Verminderde CPU prestaties op accustroom ; Sterke PWM geknipper bij helderheid onder 90%

Voor het volledige, Engelse testrapport, klik hier. Dat is echter het enige voordeel van het HD beeldscherm. Op alle andere vlakken stelt het paneel zeer teleur: zeer hoge zwartwaardes, extreem kleine kijkhoeken en een bijna niet-bestaand...

Recensione breve del Portatile Lenovo ThinkPad E470 (HD-Display, HD 620)

 

Display dell'epoca della pietra. Il Lenovo ThinkPad E470 è un ThinkPad economico che punta a studenti e utilizzatori domestici. Abbiamo già visto questo portatile quest'anno con un hardware leggermente peggiore, ma vediamo cosa vi potrebbe spingere ad...

case decente ; dispositivi di input comodi ; decent performance con le applicazioni ; veloce connessione Wi-Fi ; silenzioso e fresco sotto carico ; autonomia migliorata

nessuna USB Type-C ; solo 12 mesi di garanzia ; pessimo display TN HD con angoli di visuale tremendi ; CPU con performance ridotte con la batteria ; PWM flickering a bassa frequenza con luminosità inferiore a 90%

La sintesi è che l'E470 è un economico portatile business ma non possiamo raccomandare questa versione oggi. Ha molti vantaggi dell'altro E470: dispositivi di input comodi e decenti con la leggendaria tastiera ThinkPad ed il track point; un case solido...

Test Lenovo ThinkPad E470 (HD-Display, HD 620) Laptop

 

Display-Steinzeit. Mit dem ThinkPad E470 hat Lenovo ein günstiges ThinkPad im Angebot, das sowohl für Studenten als auch Home-Office ein interessantes Gerät sein kann. Wir hatten dieses Modell schon einmal im Test, heute testen wir ein Modell mit...

gutes Gehäuse ; angenehme Eingabegeräte ; gute Anwendungsleistung ; schnelle WLAN-Verbindung ; leise und kühl selbst unter last ; verbesserte Akkulaufzeiten

USB Typ C fehlt ; nur 12 Monate Garantie ; unterirdisches, blickwinkel-instabiles TN-HD-Display ; reduzierte CPU-Leistung im Akkubetrieb ; PWM mit niedriger Frequenz unter 90 % Helligkeit

Unter dem Strich ist das E470 ein günstiges Business-Notebook mit einem guten Preis-Leistungsverhältnis, in der getesteten Konfiguration ist es aber auf jeden Fall nicht empfehlenswert. Das vorliegende E470 ist wegen seiner unausgewogenen Konfiguration...
