The Lenovo ThinkPad laptop line is the embodiment of business laptops. They boast long battery life in a sleek and lightweight design with solid performance.
The shining star - we think - is the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon. This impressive laptop comes with excellent battery life, solid build quality and keyboard, plus the X1 is super light and slim. Specs-wise it hosts the 2.7GHz Intel Core i7-7500U and 8GB of RAM, as well as, three USB-C sockets, two USB 3.0s, a full-size HDMI and a miniature RJ45 networking port, much better than a MacBook.
Another solid option is the Lenovo Yoga 11 710. This flexible laptop is ideal for the travelling CIO, offering a 360-degree hinge and a touchscreen. It's positioned in the market as a rival to the 12-inch MacBook.
Naturally, when opting for size and portability you lose out on power, but with an eight-hour battery life, perhaps this could be overlooked.
If you are after a solid laptop on a budget, then the Lenovo Yoga Book could be what you’re looking for.
Priced from £449.99, the Yoga Book offers a versatile 2-in-1 device that works as both a laptop and tablet. It has up to 12 hours of battery life, with built-in Intel Atom processor.
The Yoga Book is available on Android and Windows 10 operating system.
For users after a more powerful workstation, the Lenovo ThinkPad P71 is great for just that. Although not as slim as other models, it offers a 4K UHD display with IPS technology and built-in colour calibration for accurate imagery.
Interestingly, out of all the ThinkPad models, the P71 is the only VR (virtual reality) certified model available. This means that users can access professional AR and VR ready features on the device.
