Lenovo ThinkPad L15 Gen 2 (20X7003WFR) Against the Competition

Lenovo ThinkPad L15 Gen 2 (20X7003WFR) is currently shown in Upgrade in Lenovo France And it ranks as one of the only companies in its class to offer such a large amount of RAM with such a powerful processor (Octo Core), fingerprint reader + infrared webcam, TrackPoint but also to work with Windows Pro.

Chassis, Connectors, and Lenovo ThinkPad L15 Gen 2 Display (20X7003WFR)

Robust while compliant with the US Military Standard MIL-STD-810H, this slim and light laptop features a discreet look in its black design.

This versatile black laptop runs Windows 10 Pro, a more complete system than the classic Windows 10 with advanced network management and security tools like BitLocker.

Two-factor authentication via Windows Hello and the built-in TPM 2.0 security chip are provided here thanks to a fingerprint reader and an infrared webcam that enables facial recognition.

It has good connectivity with two USB-C ports (compared to 1 usually max), two Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi ax (Newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to connect and connect wirelessly from a distance, a handy HDMI video output to easily connect to a TV or monitor, for example, a headphone/microphone combo port and Gigabit Ethernet or two USB 3.0 ports (compatible with USB 2.0) ensuring transfers up to 10 faster times from USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
In addition, a Nano-SIM slot is included, which is enough to add, for example, a 4G module.

The bubble gum keyboard can obviously be backlit, making it easier to spot its keys in low ambient light.

The screen adopts the classic specifications at this price level i.e. 16:9 format combined with Full HD resolution, making it suitable for videos and in general for high definition content. In addition, the horizontal and vertical viewing angles are important due to the IPS technology. However, it is too bad that colorimetry is classic, inferior to high-end IPS panels. In any case, thanks to the anti-reflective treatment, the screen can be read more than the glossy panel in a bright environment (eg outside).

Performance and battery life for Lenovo ThinkPad L15 Gen 2 (20X7003WFR)

Lenovo ThinkPad L15 Gen 2 (20X7003WFR) is a secure, discreet black laptop designed for everyday versatile use.

Its controlled weight and thinness make it easy to transport, which is appreciable because it can last about 8 hours on battery in light use.

To do this, it relies on energy-efficient components such as the low-power Cezanne Octo Core Ryzen 7 Pro 5850U AMD APU (Fast Processing Unit). Here it is paired with 16GB of RAM to deliver a good overall performance capable of satisfying many users.

This will be especially the case for those who occasionally do multimedia processing with multicore and RAM, such as video conversion or photo editing.

However, to perform often work that requires CPU and RAM resources with a multi-core, it is better to resort to a computer with a non-low-power processor and / or a suitable dedicated graphics card, but this will have an effect on autonomy and heating especially.

Here, there is no dedicated graphics card on board. Thus, all graphics are managed by the Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution integrated into the Ryzen 7 Pro Octo Core. Unpretentious, the Radeon Vega 8 still allows you to view photos and videos but also play light titles.

Storage-wise, an SSD makes sense but it’s also more powerful than an HDD, less power consuming and much faster.

Its 512GB capacity is in line with what standard hard drives have to offer. However, if you need more space, you can use an external storage such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to take advantage of fast transfers.

In any case, it is clear that the SSD enhances responsiveness and fluidity in use compared to a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, the start / stop operations are much faster for example as well as the processing and launch of programs, and we get to the online game cards faster.
