This PC is a ThinkPad with a clear, vivid screen that offers good contrast. It’s ideal for business users, with features such as a discrete TPM module 2.0 chip, 802.11 AC (2×2) wireless technology, and Bluetooth 5.0. With a thinness of under 1-inch, the Lenovo ThinkPad E14 is sleek yet durable and robust.
It is a reasonably priced notebook as well, considering its premium appearance and good specs. Lenovo offers models with a one-side metal finish and some with an all-plastic finish. Even with the all-plastic finish, the E24 still looks nice and has some durability.
The backlit keyboard design is similar to other ThinkPads, which means it’s a good one. There are dedicated Home / End / Page Up / Page Down keys. Typing is an easy, snappy process. Need to make Skype calls with business associates or acquaintances? Just hit the special keys; some are designated for placing and ending calls through Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business.
The 720p webcam does a better job than most other 720p laptop webcams out there. It manages to capture colorful and well-lit images with very little noise or static. It works well with the Skype for Business Certified microphone.
The Lenovo ThinkPad E14 also has bottom-mounted speakers by Harman Kardon that produce a decent amount of loud sound with a noticeable amount of bass. The E14 comes with Dolby Audio software that provides presets for movies, games, and voice, as well as an equalizer.
