Lenovo ThinkPad L380 Yoga

 

Lenovo's ThinkPad L380 Yoga is an affordable alternative to the fancier ThinkPad X380 Yoga, but there are even more budget-friendly 2-in-1 convertibles to be had.

Comfortable keyboard. Excellent sound. Stylus on board.

Not a benchmark barn-burner. No Thunderbolt 3 port. No dongle provided for proprietary Ethernet port. A few ounces overweight.

Bottom Line: Lenovo's ThinkPad L380 Yoga is an affordable alternative to the fancier ThinkPad X380 Yoga, but there are even more budget-friendly 2-in-1 convertibles to be had.

The ThinkPad L380 Yoga is a sleek and durable business 2-in-1 with long battery life, but its display could be better.

Excellent keyboard; Durably designed; Very good battery life; Powerful speakers; Customizable stylus

Dim display with thick bezels; Touchpad a bit small; Below-average graphics performance; Dull webcam

Lenovo ThinkPad L380 (i5-8250U, UHD620) Laptop Review

 

Small business all-rounder. The ThinkPad L380 is Lenovo's alternative for those users who don't get much out of a business convertible, but do not want to go without the design and features of the L380 Yoga. In addition, there is also a display that is...

very good maintenance options ; good input devices ; long battery life ; very quiet operation

low color-space coverage ; low brightness ; few business features

The ThinkPad L380 from Lenovo shows itself as a solid all-round device in our test. At a size of 13-inches, it is still small enough to take on the road all day, and the performance is more than sufficient for most applications of everyday work. Due to...

Affordable ThinkPad Yoga Convertibles are on everyone's lips these days, a category which Lenovo helped to pioneer. The ThinkPad L380 Yoga is an affordable convertible that expands Lenovo's business range. Find out in this detailed review whether this...

RAM expandable up to 32 GB ; very good input devices ; high-quality IPS display with good brightness and colors ; solid I/O ; the case feels good to the touch ; the fan is usually quiet ; surface temperatures remain low under load

the base lacks the rigidity of other ThinkPads ; no Lift & Lock keyboard mechanism ; only twelve months warranty ; poor performance in our Wi-Fi reception test ; low PWM frequency at high brightness ; missing business features (WWAN, smartcard reader)

The Lenovo ThinkPad L380 Yoga is of interest to us as it is this year’s only completely new ThinkPad. Is it a meaningful expansion of Lenovo’s portfolio? The price to performance ratio is right. Overall, the Lenovo ThinkPad L380 Yoga is a convincing...

Lenovo ThinkPad L380 review – good but lacks some boldness

 

ThinkPad L380, as Lenovo puts it clearly on its website, is targeted specifically to the business branch. It is an “ultraportable” business solution, which competes in a very strong seg…

ThinkPad level build quality;Decent keyboard;Cool and quiet work;Memory and storage upgradeability;8 hours of web surfing on battery power

Mediocre color range (LP133WF2-SPL);The contrast ratio is modest for an IPS panel (LP133WF2-SPL);Relatively low CPU performance

Lenovo Thinkpad L380 Yoga review: Get this one

 

Lenovo Thinkpad L380 Yoga review: What sets Thinkpad L380 Yoga apart is its ability to stretch flat, stand up like a tent and fold backwards to become a tablet enabling consumption and creativity in different modes.
