See questions and answers. Customer Reviews. That also contributes to speed, among other things, and can thus reduce possible data congestion. The 5 GHz band also has the advantage that it is not yet as busy, and thus contains fewer sources of interference. The connection was tested using 2 routers; one was located in the laptop's direct vicinity approx.
There were no problems with the Wi-Fi reception in either case. Intel's Centrino module also supports Bluetooth 4. A light-sensitive HD webcam with a wide-angle range and Face-Tracking from Vimicro Corporation, as well as two microphones with noise cancellation provide the necessary communication tools for web conferences. The camera shoots fairly focused pictures in the p mode, but they are partly very noisy especially in somewhat darker ambient light.
It is not intended for making HD videos, and its performance is fully sufficient for communication usage. Thus, the camera serves its purpose. Face-tracking works very well. An activity LED indicates whether the camera is on. Not many accessories are included for the ThinkPad L The review sample only included a quick-start poster, and a card of recommendation for Lenovo-branded laptop bags.
The ThinkPad L is delivered with Windows 7 bit installed. The system can be reset via the included Lenovo ThinkVantage Tools software. This tool also enables creating a backup of needed files on an external data carrier, which is certainly recommendable. After all, a hard drive could take damage. The ThinkPad has a relatively large maintenance cover for accessing the inner components. Besides the four screws that have to be removed, there is also an additional fixture system comprised of plastic clips for no evident reason.
They make it difficult to open the cover without accidentally damaging them because they are virtually predestined to break here. In any case, the user should attempt this very carefully so to not break the plate or clips. Thus, it would be better to not open the laptop when it is not absolutely necessary. Should this, however, become necessary, it would be advisable to download the corresponding Hardware Maintenance Manual Unfortunately, the exact location of these clips is not depicted.
The latter is easy to replace because it is only inserted via a connector, and not soldered. The ThinkPad L features two easy-to-access working memory banks, one of which is furnished with a 4 GB module. The hard drive can also be replaced easily e. The size of the installed hard drive slot offers the usual space for 2. A base warranty of 36 months is included on the laptop, and corresponds to the class standard. Warranty upgrades or extensions are optionally available. For example, Lenovo currently charges As to security, Lenovo's ThinkPad has quite a bit to offer.
This security mechanism detects strong shocks to the system or even drops , and parks the hard drive's read head to protect stored data. According to Lenovo's website, special tests similar to military standards were also performed with the laptop. It features a fairly long drop with a well-defined pressure point, and quiet stroke. The keys' surface is sleek not roughened , and they are slightly concave. Typing quickly on the keyboard is very pleasant, and even some desktop keyboards cannot compete with it - definitely a bonus point.
As good as the keyboard is the x 75 millimeter touchpad gives reason for complaint. Here, one of the biggest modifications of recent years is found in form of the 5-key ClickPad. For example, the two dedicated touchpad, or mouse buttons have now been omitted. Lenovo has integrated them into the touchpad's surface so that the entire pad is now a button with an unusually high drop. Consequently, it feels a bit like a wobbly platform.
Unfortunately, precise cursor control is only possible to an extent because the finger often "slips" away. Users who have only used a conventional touchpad until now will certainly find it very strange, and will need a bit of getting used to. However, this is not devastating for those who work with more sophisticated programs because they will likely connect an external mouse, and the red TrackPoint in the keyboard's center is another alternative for controlling the cursor.
A inch HD anti-glare screen with a native resolution of x pixels format is installed in the ThinkPad L The screen's average brightness of The contrast ratio of , and a black level of 0. Dell's Latitude E accomplishes marginally lower results with rates of and 0. Fujitsu's E is on par with that. Unfortunately, the DeltaE shifts of many colors reached a rate of over The ThinkPad L's viewing angle stability is not quite as good.
The displayed image quickly loses brightness and contrast, which also unfortunately limits outdoor use to an extent. The expectations placed on the quality of a screen from this price range have thus not been satisfactorily fulfilled. The native resolution of x pixels could also be a bit higher for a laptop from the business category. Like the contenders, the ThinkPad is not necessarily meant for photographers or graphic designers because the ascertained rates do not meet the professional demands in these fields.
However, we did not determine outstanding color deviations using only our eyes. Lenovo clearly focuses on processor power and security in its ThinkPad L Intricate 3D games, however, do not quite belong to the laptop's intended application field. Since only one of the two working memory banks in the ThinkPad L is filled, the working memory only operates in single-channel mode.
A considerably higher performance could be achieved by installing a second RAM module with the same memory capacity because the dual-channel mode would lead to a higher data transfer rate between processor and memory. Installing a solid state drive SSD would naturally also lead to a performance boost. All in all, the ThinkPad L is a reliable companion in the work world owing to its strong battery, many security features, and rigid casing, and has enough performance reserves for many tasks.
This mobile dual-core CPU has a base clock of 2. The processor also supports Hyper-Threading, which enables both cores to process 4 threads simultaneously. Lenovo also offers the ThinkPad L with other processors. At the time of writing the preconfigured models available in Germany were all listed with an iM that clocks a bit slower 2. The chip achieved an excellent score in the Cinebench R The score in the Cinebench multi-core test is just as impressive. The chip advances to the top ranks of mobile dual-core processors.
The swift CPU easily manages all routine tasks, and still has plenty of reserves. The booting time of Windows 7 is fairly normal with just under 30 seconds. This could partly be because the working memory only operates in single-channel mode, as said above, and the graphics card takes its part from the RAM in shared-memory mode. The PCMark Vantage score points , as well as the PCMark 8 points score could improve significantly after eliminating this system bottleneck.
It has a capacity of GB, and spins with revolutions per minute. CrystalDiskMark ascertained a read speed of HD Tune recorded an average transfer rate of Those are throughout good rates, but a solid state drive SSD would be more wanted in an office device. Of course, no storage system can provide full protection against data loss, regardless of whether the data is stored on a conventional hard drive or SSD. However, it would be an additional security aspect besides the performance gain because SSDs do not have any mechanical moving parts that can easily take damage.
That would make the system even more insensitive to external shocks. Lenovo does not use a dedicated graphics solution, and completely relies on the Intel HD Graphics graphics core integrated into the iM. It supports DirectX Its default clock is MHz, which can be increased up to 1.
The ThinkPad L certainly cannot be considered a gaming laptop. We nevertheless tried a few titles. The graphics settings for the other two tested games should be left on low so that reasonable frame rates are achieved. Details can be found in the chart below.
More games can be found here. We ascertained a fairly high noise development ranging from That is not inevitably distracting because the level is virtually undeviating - it is just very audible. Noise peaks of This could be eliminated by replacing the hard drive with a solid state drive SSD.
This looks completely different during load. The ThinkPad L made a very good impression with rates of Thus, the laptop can be used on the thighs without hesitation. This is different when the system is maxed out. The Dolby Advanced Audio stereo speakers in the ThinkPad L are in the base unit's rear area on the device's upper side. They produce a very treble-heavy sound quality, as expected in view of the casing's small size.
There is no real bass, but speech is well-intelligible. Of course, the user should not expect Hi-Fi quality. It is possible to connect external speakers or headphones for movies or presentations via the 3. The measured power consumption of the ThinkPad L ranged from 8. The laptop still consumed However, the 65 watt power supply is designed sufficiently for this.
Dell's Latitude is within a similar range with a minimum of 7. This sounds very optimistic at first. A remarkable runtime of 10 hours and 55 minutes in Battery Eater's Reader's test surprised us even more. Although it is performed in idle mode using minimum brightness and Window's energy-saving profile, some current ultrabooks cannot quite keep up with that.
This impressive runtime is, however, only a theoretical rate to test the battery's possibilities, and only has little significance for real-life work habits. Of course, the battery runtime decreases as soon as the wireless communication modules were enabled, and we browsed on the Internet with the screen's brightness set to medium approx.
