Whenever an argument arises on lenovo laptops, then our mind starts rotating around few of the price ranges. It might be greater than or less than 5K or 10K. Well I am here to disrupt that unwanted rotation as one of the best business laptop is in front of you which you can make yours while not letting your pocket release too much.
Lenovo Thinkpad series is something which most of us are familiar with. I mentioned business above because these laptops have excelled mostly among the business folks.
The thing I am gonna review today is popular with the name Lenovo Thinkpad E480.
- Perfect in appearance.
- Great in performance.
- Fingerprint sensor.
- Economically cheap.
- Battery life is a little disappointing.
- Not preferable for high end gamers.
DESIGN AND DISPLAY
Lighter than their previous Thinkpad launches along with few additions in its look than before. The matte black finish all around the chassis including the keyboard and the touchpad area provides it a perfect business look. A standard power button at the top right corner and a fingerprint sensor contributed a lot in its overall appearance.
The backlit keyboard is also much easier to use and doesn’t let you flex the fingers more while typing. Along with this the red lines on the touchpad make the entire area look more classy.
The 14 inch IPS display is something that a business user expects. You can watch movies, play games and do other similar activities in it though not with the best performance. But since your concern is more towards business then you must consider its performance in business activities while compromising with a few minute flaws.

Performance in every field is something which cannot be compromised in any order and here the case is the same but thanks to the Intel 8th-gen Core i5 processor and upto 8GB upgradable RAM capacity which doesn’t let it to do so. Whether it be creating , editing , running multiple browsers at a time or playing games this laptop has excelled in all its performance tests.
The use of AMD Radeon RX 550 with a 2GB storage ends up providing a perfect graphic setting. In addition the 512Gb SSD and upto 2GB harddrive or upto 500Gb storage is enough for most of the folks among us. The large space carrying files can be transferred in a very less time , thanks to the Solid State drive (SSD).
Along with this, the windows 10 operating system, a powerful security setup, a high quality webcam and dolby advanced audio speakers provides you a complete package in such a normal budget.
The ports include USB 3.0 Type C, 2x USB 3.1, USB 2.0, HDMI, microSD card and a headphone and microphone combo jack. The port’s quantity is sufficient for a business user.
The true estimation cannot be predicted in case of battery life as it completely depends on the quality of work done. But then also the manufacturer claims that it can run upto 13 hours. We have been using this laptop for the last 2 months in which we performed all the editing tasks, gaming as well as streaming and all. So after all these the battery lasted up giving a long lasting performance i.e upto 7-8 hours but we suggest to carry a charger if you are on a move.

Lenovo Thinkpad E480 may not be your perfect choice if you have concerns about the looks and design. But if you are a true business person whose main priority is performance and is ready to compromise with the little minute flaws then this laptop is only for you. This has been proved as one of the best laptops under 60000.
Another thing I want to mention is that you may get a better display and better battery at the same range in other laptops but there you may get a scene where you have to compromise with the performance. So while summing up, I would suggest you to think twice before coming to any conclusion whether to have or not.
