Review: Lenovo ThinkPad P14s i Gen 2 packs a punch although it’s slightly boring
Using a Thunderbolt connection, I was able to achieve 3840×1600 resolution without stressing the ThinkPad or with noticeable slowdown.
The 14-inch screen is fine a bit, but with a maximum resolution of 1920×1080, it doesn’t quite have the same impact as a large screen for easier navigation and multitasking.
One thing I have to note is that in a review of another Lenovo branded laptop, I was furious with the amount of bloatware installed on it, and was told it might work better if you pay for it. extra money for software to improve it.
There is nothing like it with the P14s, perhaps because they are aimed at a different audience. Nonetheless, I greatly appreciated being treated like an adult and not having a lot of unnecessary programs on my device.
Overall, the P14s is light to carry and has a very good battery life. I had a whole day of use, but not with the CPU constantly stressed, and I still had juice left. It also does a good job of maintaining battery levels when you close the cover to put it to sleep.
So, there’s a lot to like about the second-generation P14s laptops, but it’s not all so smooth.
One of the benefits of modern laptops and displays is the ability to reduce the bezel size and give you a more visible area in the same footprint.
The ThinkPad isn’t really doing itself any favors here. The glasses are big and really contribute to that retro look compared to more modern designs.
The TrackPoint controller is also one of them. The little red joystick with bumps on it that sits between the G, H, and B keys was a design standard, but now it feels like it’s there as some kind of joke.
