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.

Critique complète du PC portable Lenovo ThinkPad T490s (i5-8265U, UHD 620, Low Power FHD)
