Lenovo ThinkPad T490S review: The best value ThinkPad laptop

 

A brilliant lightweight computer with a superb screen and excellent battery life. The only thing it lacks is a discrete graphics chip

Spacious keyboard ; Superb colour accuracy ; Broad choice of spec configurations

Sub-par webcam quality

Whichever you choose, though, you will be buying a superbly engineered computer. Considered as a three-year purchase, the T490s is arguably the best value laptop in the comprehensive ThinkPad lineup.

Lenovo ThinkPad T490s

 

Among Lenovo's 14-inch ThinkPads, the slim T490s is a better bet than the bulkier T490 model, but the premiere X1 Carbon remains tempting, if not for the reason you might expect.

Chassis is thin yet durable. Stellar keyboard. Quiet operation. Useful selection of ports including Thunderbolt 3.

Dim display. High-resolution screen no longer available.

Bottom Line: Among Lenovo's 14-inch ThinkPads, the slim T490s is a better bet than the bulkier T490 model, but the premiere X1 Carbon remains tempting, if not for the reason you might expect.
