Lenovo ThinkPad T470s

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad T470s isn't revolutionary, but is a reliable and travel-friendly business laptop loaded with modern features and ports, making it a worthy upgrade to its predecessor.

Light and portable design. Touch screen. Myriad port and connectivity options. Comfortable keyboard. Long battery life.

Feature set and performance don't stand out among similarly priced competitors. Lacks removable battery.

The ThinkPad T470s doesn't bring any real innovation to the field, but rather, incrementally improves on a proven concept with some smart updates. It has a current-generation processor, the latest ports, a travel-friendly design, and new security...

Lenovo ThinkPad T470s Review

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad T470s is a thin computer with strong performance and a wonderful keyboard, but competitors offer lower weight or longer battery life.

Great keyboard; Little bloatware; Solid performance; Thin and light

Below-average battery life; Poor screens on lower-end models

Lenovo Thinkpad T470s Review

 

This premium 14-inch business notebook offers a good mix of business-friendly features and battery life, but is it outdone by Lenovo's own ThinkPad X1 Carbon (5th generation/2017)?

Competitively priced ; Excellent keyboard and touch pad/pointing stick ; Supports snap-in docking solutions ; Good IPS screen

Chassis could feel more solid ; Slightly larger than previous generation model

Lenovo ThinkPad T470s – What is the best display option?

 

Agony of choice. We compare the displays for the new ThinkPad T470s. WQHD, Full HD or touchscreen – how does the choice influence the picture quality as well as the battery runtime?

Lenovo still equips expensive business laptops like the ThinkPad T470s with mediocre Full HD screens. There is a trend towards higher resolution panels (often with better characteristics), but there are much better Full HD panels on the market. This is...

Lenovo ThinkPad T470s (Core i7, WQHD) Laptop Review

 

High-end business. We review the top-tier configuration of the new Lenovo ThinkPad T470s. Besides a healthy amount of memory as well as storage and a new Kaby Lake processor, the Chinese manufacturer also implements a brighter WQHD panel. We are a bit...

light and sturdy case ; bright WQHD panel ; great keyboard ; numerous security features ; LTE integrated ; USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ; long battery runtime ; 3-year warranty

high temperatures ; limite CPU Turbo ; significantly reduced performance on battery power ; inconvenient position of the USB-C port ; high price

The ThinkPad T470s is one of the devices that Lenovo updated only a little this year. The previous T460s was already a very good business notebook, so this is not a big issue. The new ThinkPad T470s is still a good business notebook with a light as...

Lenovo ThinkPad T470S review: Great battery, nice screen, good performance

 

Business users require a special sort of laptop and the ThinkPad line has been serving it up for years. The ThinkPad T470S follows in those footsteps.

A great Ultrabook for business or personal use. Great improvement to the trackpad, decent improvement to the keyboard, great battery life and nice screen. You can’t go wrong with this one if this is in your price range.

Lenovo ThinkPad T470s Review and Ratings

 

The refreshed ThinkPad T470s brings a faster CPU and other enhancements to one of our favorite thin-and-light laptops. It isn't cheap, but near-perfection rarely is.

Top-notch screen ; Excellent keyboard ; Good pep, battery life in test configuration ; Deep connectivity ; ThinkPad durability

Upgrades make it pricey ; Low-res Webcam

The T470s comes with Windows 10 Home by default, or you can step up to Windows 10 Pro, as on our tested machine, for $30. All models come with what Microsoft calls "Windows 10 Signature Edition," a clean build of Windows with no trialware, third-party...
