    has compared with huawei D14, similar price but d14 cpu was 2019 model. lenovo much better.

  • +5 votes

    Almost ticks all the boxes but 250nit screen and 38Wh battery :/

    Memory is expandable to 12GB as well I'm assuming (by replacing the non soldered 4GB with 8GB)

      If i am going to use it only to display on another monitor - does that really matter?

      • +1 vote

        250nits only really will matter if you're in a naturally lit environment, will be but a small inconvenience if you're primarily using another screen.

          With 42% NTSC I think most people would notice how bad the colour reproduction is considering how good phone displays have been the last decade.

          The OZB orange will never look right, such travesty.

    •  

      At this price though. My laptop does 500+ nits and had a massive battery but it's not ~$700

      •  

        Also a TN panel. I've got an IPS screen around 300nits with an okay battery (42Wh) I got for around $800 3 years ago so definitely possible

    Not a bad price, this vs the thinkpad deals

  •  

    250nit screen on website, but i search youtube same model someone tested is 300nit.

    •  

      Please use the reply button, instead of posting a new comment :)

      I was wondering about this too because the 17" model (also Gen 6) has 300 nits but couldn't find this also having the same (that one didn't have fingerprint sensor though)

    •  

      Do you think this will be an issue if the laptop is to be used mainly indoors?

  •  

    Is it Wifi 6 capable?

  •  

    What's the GPU like? Decent enough for mild gaming like AOE2?

    • +3 votes

      It will run AOE2 no problems, but then again almost anything made in the last 20 years will.

      •  

        Sorry meant definitive edition

        •  

          Will run fine

          I play aoe2HD

          On a Lenovo flex 5 4500U 16gb ram
          Can usually get about 4hours of gameplay

        •  

          I have the Ryzen 3500U (4c/8t) a model before yours on the Thinkpad e495. Age of Empires 2 DE and HD both play smoothly most of the time (avoid 4v4 on extreme map sizes if on battery).

          While the other commenters have said that Age of Empires 2 HD/DE will run on anything, I find that I get mixed results on older Intel integrated GPUs (eg Core i5 6500 can't handle 1080p large team games smoothly).

    •  

      The GPU in the Ryzen 5500u will play esports titles with no issues. Just look up Ryzen 5500u gaming, plenty of videos showing how capable it is.

      If you wamt an idea of the raw performance of the CPU, just use a legitimate site like Passmark

    OK CPU and good storage but pretty bad everything else.

      Ryzen 5500U is a more then capable six core CPU, and blows past a lot if 11th gen Intel CPUs in many workloads.

      • -1 vote

        Relative to the other Ryzen mobile CPUs such as H series, it's average. Considering this is a large 15.6" notebook, it doesn't need a low wattage CPU as they could have easily cooled an H series CPU in there. The 5500U was selected as a cost saving measure, not due to a TDP limitation.

        • +1 vote

          I don't see your point comparing a 15w TDP CPU to 45W+ TDP CPU. The 8750h is consuming 67w to 110w on average based on what you provided, whilst the 5500u sips power. I noticsd you removed your previous post.

        •  

          Yes they ~could~ have cooled it, but thats not the point. Its because U-series is a low power chip, unlike the H-series. And thier target market for this laptop is people who need a decent battery. That's why I think.

    $751.20 for non-eBay Plus members using 20% off promo code.

    $783.20 for 17" model, similar specs but better display (300nits/72% NTSC).

    • +2 votes

      Love the 17” but no fingerprint scanner.

  •  

    Not only is the screen dim (250nit) and semi grey-scale (45% NTSC), it's a (cheap) TN panel with horrible washed out colour and contrast any anything other than perfectly perpendicular viewing. You will not find a worse screen on a laptop.
    Avoid unless you only plan on using it with a monitor(s).

    •  

      i checked on youtube review first than placed the order, most people said the screen terrible only 250nit, but youtuber tested is 300nit;

      • +1 vote

        You know a lot of laptops get released with different screens in different regions for the same model right? Even technology type changing from IPS to TN.

    •  

      250 is fine. Unless you bring it to a park on a bright sunny day…

      •  

        Lol. My 350 nit monitors look dim when viewed in front of a large window with the privacy blind down. Depends on where and when you use it. But even at home, inside, 250 can be too dim for practical use.

        •  

          Are you serious? I think you might have some vision issues and probably need to get a check-up done.
          My 250 nits laptop is always at 40-50% in a room with 2 glass walls with curtains drawn.

          •  

            @mrvaluepack: Have you never been outside? I'm directly facing a gigantic window lit by the sun. The monitors are framed on all sides by sky (2nd story). Totally different to "being in a room".

  •  

    What’s up with these 250 nits screens from Lenovo?
    Are they building them for albinos?

  •  

    in an office environment, wouldn't a constant 250nits screen burn your eyes?

    •  

      A well lit office during the day? No, it won't be that bright at all and if it's glossy then it won't be bright enough to push though reflections from ceiling lights.

    Seriously? A TN panel on a laptop (one that costs this much no less)? What the hell is this, 2010?

    •  

      The more I look at it, the more tempted I am by the 17" deal with IPS panel.

      •  

        Actually all the same screen nit, as youtuber test 300 nit, But Lenovo description said 250

        •  

          Here it's comparing TN to IPS panels (IPS are far superior), not nits.
          Furthermore - show the source of that because I'm not sure if it's the same laptop.

  •  

    No wifi? Who the heck buys a laptop with no wifi? What would be the point?

    • +2 votes

      No wireless WAN. That's using mobile data off a sim card like a phone isn't it. Pretty sure it's got WiFi able to use home network or it's a very strange laptop indeed.

  •  

    Compare with the legion 5 1215 dollar. Which one is better?

  •  

    Or a 17" IPS - AMD Ryzen 5 5500U 8GB RAM 512GB SSD for $30 more!

  •  

    Why is it not wifi compatible?

    •  

      It is. It doesn't have a 3G/4G WAN option.
