Thanks to hardware like high-performance Intel processors, a 14-hour battery life, and high-speed memory (DDR4), this ultrathin business laptop offers the freedom to work anywhere. It’s a compact 13.3-inch laptop that is designed for portability. While it doesn’t come with the powerful features as the larger, more expensive business laptops, the Lenovo ThinkPad L390 does offer versatility and affordability, in addition to being very portable.
Using this as a gaming PC really isn’t practical, but you can still enjoy some multimedia. The Intel UHD graphics are capable of streaming videos and audio and delivering presentations, but not for playing graphics-demanding games. You can still expect good performance when it comes to a lot of business tasks.
Another plus of the L390 is the emissions, or lack thereof. The fan runs very quietly. It is turned off entirely when the laptop is idling. Under load, it does run constantly, but it does so quietly and you’ll barely hear it. Even its maximum noise level (31.5 dB(a) is very quiet.
