Lenovo Thinkpad T470 Review – Amazing Battery Life In Balance Portability

Lenovo has not brought so many surprises this year since many models they were introduced are still stick with old processor and old design. The only exception here is found the T-series which is interested so many people to get in touch with it. It has new design for the first time in many years with new chassis that looks lighter and smaller despite of its 14 inch screen display. You should be surprised on how light it is when you are holding it with your hands.

There are so many lighter business laptop available on the market right now, but Thinkpad gives us the best balance between portability and usability. Whether you are a student or worker, you would be benefit by its 14” display and amazing battery life. The company throws everything they have to make such a great device that appeal to many people. Do you think its price tag worth for the performance? You are going to find it soon.

That is what we are going to talk about here. We are going to talk about it further on this article to see how it performs. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s we jump into the article.


The laptop brings a very familiar, but very aesthetic design. I really love its raven black design that feels premium and classy at the same time. The exterior on the outside specifically on the lid is covered by premium material that finished in darker shade. The finishing touch is really similar to what we find on Thinkpad Carbon. It’s really bad that Lenovo did not continue the design to the deck where it will feel more comfortable for our experience.

The 3.48 pounds at 13.25 x 9.15 x 0.79 design is basically slightly lighter than its previous model. The improvement is not only found on the design, but also in battery life. Now, it uses standard 6 cell battery rather than using the cell one. The result is the improvement on the battery where we get it double. The material quality on the machine is great because it’s designed with glass fiber plastic. The overall quality is great although the price is quite cheap.

Performance And Battery Life

The Intel Core I5 6200U is satisfying enough in term of performance despite of its ages. There is a better version with better processor, but with higher price. But, for handling multiple tasks such as editing documents and making the presentation, this processor is more than enough. I have tested it for a week and have not found any slowdown in any daily usage. The 8GB RAM is pretty good on taking many apps at the same time.

The battery life is probably the biggest selling point here. It’s probably one of the best that I have tested. The battery lasts for more than 10 hours without any single charge. The result is pretty similar in comparable with Thinkpad Carbon that slightly far behind on this case. The 6 cell battery is really talking here. Remember it has two different choices in term of battery. Do not worry to carry the charger anymore because you won’t need it anymore.
