Lenovo ThinkPad T470

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad T470 exemplifies the mainstream business laptop, with a no-nonsense body, manageable weight, excellent keyboard, dual pointing devices, and long battery life.

Comfortable keyboard. 17 hours of battery life with upgraded battery. Hot-swappable battery. Ethernet port and Thunderbolt 3 port.

Muddy sound. Matte screen finish dulls colors.

In many ways, the Lenovo ThinkPad T470 might be close to ideal for business. It has classic aesthetics, is powerful enough for most office tasks, is comfortable enough to satisfy a wide range of business users, can be configured up or down depending on...

Lenovo ThinkPad T470 Review: All Business

 

The ThinkPad T470 is very much a ThinkPad: that means a durable design with proven reliability. There's a lighting fast PCIe SSD under the hood, an industry-leading keyboard, and one of the best batteries we've seen on a business notebook.

Fantastic Keyboard ; Mindblowing battery life ; Strong performance

Lenovo ThinkPad T470 (Core i5, Full-HD) Notebook Review

 

New revision of the business classic. The ThinkPads from the T-series represent typical business notebooks for many users. Lenovo does not only equip the new T470 with modern processors and ports, but also a completely new chassis. Update: Luminance on...

sturdy chassis with good build quality ; excellent input devices ; mate IPS screen with wide opening angle ; good system performance ; comprehensive security features ; Thunderbolt 3 with USB-C ; quiet and cool operation ; long battery runtime ; decent...

high color deviations and low color gamut ; tinny sound ; high price

The new ThinkPad T470 put up a convincing performance in many sections, despite some drawbacks. The new chassis is only slightly smaller and lighter than before, but both the build quality and the stability are very good. The keyboard is still one of...

Lenovo ThinkPad T470 Review and Ratings

 

The T470 is tops among midsize business or college-bound laptops. It delivers durability, configurability, and a wealth of features—plus the best laptop keyboard money can buy.

Durable design ; Excellent keyboard and screen ; User-swappable (and hot-swappable!) battery ; Very good performance and battery life ; Attractive price

No option to upgrade to discrete graphics engine ; Ho-hum Webcam

As with the ThinkPad T470s, the T470 comes with Windows 10 Home (64-bit) by default, or you can step up to Windows 10 Pro, as on our tester machine, for $30. All models come in what Microsoft calls "Windows 10 Signature Edition": a clean build of...

Lenovo ThinkPad T470

 

Great build quality, the keyboard is solid and responsive, the design is sleek yet robust and a great size for use at home or travel. Start up, use and shut down is fast and without any delay. Screen size and brightness is where it needs to be.

None. Some users have detailed screen brightness as an issue. Its perfect for long usage and everyday use. Its good for watching films.
