Expert Review

ThinkPad T495

Great display, long battery life, and good performance. Given its lower price, the ThinkPad T495 is a great alternative to the Intel-equipped ThinkPad T490. The only real downside is the missing Thunderbolt 3 port. Whether or not this is important to you depends on how you intend to use it, but it is definitely not a must-have for an office laptop.

ThinkPad X395

The Lenovo ThinkPad X395 is a great sub and office notebook that revealed few weaknesses during our tests. The AMD-powered machine is at least equal to its Intel sibling, but while running more quietly, coolly and economically. The X395 has stronger GPU performance than the X390 too, which is a bonus.

Lenovo claims 14.5 hours of battery life. But you can get 13 hours of battery life on constant use like surfing the web or working in MS Office. It’s also configured with 65-watt Rapid fast-charger, which gives you back 80% of the power in just an hour of being plugged.
