While we work on the 15-inch ThinkPad E570 review we finished testing the 14-inch variant and we are curious if it’s any good. Costing considerably less than its bigger 15-inch sibling, the ThinkPad E470 offers the same compute power, an IPS Full HD display, a more budget-oriented and less powerful GPU on board and surprisingly, a tad bigger battery. The former change is quite understandable because an NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics card will take it much easier on the cooling system and smaller chassis but we are puzzled by the bigger battery unit, nonetheless. User experience remains largely unaffected by the form factor, though.
For the writing of this review, we were able to obtain the budget variant of the laptop with just Core i5-7200U CPU and the integrated Intel HD Graphics 620 GPU. Keep in mind, though, that there’s a model with the NVIDIA GeForce 940MX (2GB GDDR5) on board, which is capable of taking care of more graphically-intensive tasks but we doubt it will be of any concern to the mass user.
