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.

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


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.
