Lenovo ThinkPad T470p


The Lenovo ThinkPad T470 is the best mainstream business laptop on the market, thanks to its epic battery life, fantastic keyboard and plethora of ports. For users who want a little more power, Lenovo makes the ThinkPad T470p, which ups the ante with a...

Strong performance; Above-average battery life; Best-in-class keyboard

Heavier than the ThinkPad T470; No Thunderbolt 3 port; Weak battery life (with three-cell battery)

The ThinkPad T470p offers strong quad-core performance, but it trades off battery life and versatility for its speed.
