Lenovo ThinkPad E490

 

Durable chassis. Good battery life. Comfortable keyboard. Quiet operation.

Big and heavy for a 14-inch laptop. Thunderbolt 3 still MIA.

Lenovo's 14-inch ThinkPad E490 is a bit hefty but delivers durability, all-day battery life, and a stellar keyboard for budget business buyers.

Lenovo ThinkPad E490 review – rigid business notebook

 

Today, we are looking at the 14-inch version of a, apparently, very familiar device. It is called the Lenovo ThinkPad E490 and as with its bigger brother (the ThinkPad E590), it is a copy-paste of …

Very quiet under load;Great battery life;Simplistic and rigid design;Astonishing keyboard with spill resistance and backlight;Fingerprint recognition

Uses PWM to adjust brightness (BOE NV140FHM-N49) (Our Health-Guard profile can take care of that);Covers only 53% of sRGB (BOE NV140FHM-N49);Underperforming GPU, probably because of software issues
