Lenovo ThinkPad T470p, Review, Specifications, Features

The Lenovo ThinkPad T470p is the best mainstream business laptop on the market, thanks to its epic battery life, superb keyboards, and ports. For users who want a little more power, Lenovo ThinkPad T470p, which comes pre-quad-core with Core i5 or i7 CPU, an optional 2K screen and optional Nvidia graphics. Starting at $ 944 (reviewed as $ 1,308), the 14-inch T470P has performed slightly better than its slimmer brother, but for a relatively minor collision in speed, you have a heavy chassis, no Thunderbolt 3 port And live with half the battery life.

Even in the midst of ThinkPads, most of which is the same black crow black beauty and boxy size, the T470p looks boring. Instead of using the splendid, soft touch material in the form of the regular ThinkPad T470p lid, sides and bottom, put plain matte plastic on all sides of the Lenovo T470p.

ThinkPad T470p

Lenovo ThinkPad T470p At 13.3 x 9.24 x 0.94 inches and 3.6 pounds (with three cell batteries), T470p is heavier and heavier than regular T470 (0.79 inches thick, 3.48 pounds), Thinkpad X1 Carbon (2.4 pounds, 0.65 inches thick ) And AsusPro B9440 (2.4 pounds, 0.6 inches thick). Dell’s latitude 5480 (4 pounds, 0.9 inches) is heavier than a tad T470p. You have six-cell batteries, which use more battery life doubles, the weight of T470p increases by 4 pounds, and a larger battery is a slight tilt to the bottom of the laptop.

Durability and security

According to Lenovo, Thinkpad T470P Lacs is designed to pass a heap of device durability testing, including routes for extreme temperatures, shocks, and vibrations.

Display and audio

The ThinkPad T470p’s 14 inches, 1920 x 1080 display is not particularly bright or vibrant, but it is more than enough for productivity. When I played a 1080p trailer for the Guardians of the Milky Way segment. 2, purple titles and colors like the blue in Yondu’s skin seemed a bit silent, with a slight yellow bias. However, such details were sharp and prominent as the marks on the skin of the Drafts and marks on the bark of Grout.

Lenovo ThinkPad T470p According to our chronometer, the T470p sRGB color gamut, which is far below the average for a 14inch laptop (94 percent), ThinkPad X1 Carbon (104 percent), is a media 69 percent and AsusPro B9440 re- Can present (103 percent). ThinkPad T470p (73 percent) and Dell Latitude 5480 (71 percent) were also a bit better.

The screen is our light meter, which is less than the category average (255 nits), reached 229 nits of brightness, AsusPro B9440 (291 knits) and Thinkpad X1 Carbon (275 knits). ThinkPad T470p (234 knits) was just brighter, while Dell Latitude 5480 (202 knits) was quite dense. Fortunately, most of the correct consistency at the color wide viewing angle, just a little faded, we were taken to the left or right to the last 45 degrees.

Thinkpad T470p speakers are enough and quite accurate to fill in a middle-class living room for loud music or video play. When I listened to Ed Sheeran “The shape of you,” there was a clear separation of sound between the collision and the singer, both of which apparently stayed. AC / DC guitar– and drum-heavy “Back in Black” overall good, seemed to be a small sign of tin from the drum.

Keyboard, Touchpad, and TrackPoint

The Lenovo Thinkpad’s keyboard industry has a well-reputed reputation for being among the best, and the T470p typing surface is consistent with that legacy. (Specific is 1.5 to 2 mm) with a deep 2.3 millimeter of vertical travel and 74 grams of essential actuation force (65 to 70 grams USP), the keys have lots of feedback and never have me down from the bottom. The Lenovo ThinkPad T470p 10fastfingers.com is a well-typing test for my 95, 105-wpm at a typical rate, which managed at a rate of 113 words per minute. However, because I was moving so fast, I got a high-to-normal 5.3 percent error rate.

A Touchpad and a TrackPoint Clutter: Like most other Lenovo business laptops, ThinkPad T470p has two different gesture devices. I strongly prefer TrackPoint because it offers the most accurate navigation you can get on any laptop and allows you to move the indicator without removing the hand from the house row.

However, even if you do not like the stick pointing at you, you will have a very good experience with the button Touchpad without 3.9 x 2.2 inches. In my trial, pad desktops, many apps, and windows paint provided seamless movement through a drawing session. It also responded well to multitouch gestures such as pinch-to-zoom and three-finger swipe.


Thinkpad T470p ports will want a productivity user, with the exception of one of the biggest exceptions: Unlike its siblings – ThinkPad T470p and T470s – Laptops lack of a Thunderbolt 3 port. Given that the high-performance models in the T470p group are considered, Lenovo’s decision to exclude the most powerful harbor on the market is astounding. For high-end users, many 4K monitors can make the fastest connection to the external drive or forget about charging the device through a universal docking station. There is no regular USB Type-C port, either.

Like other Lenovo laptops, the T470p comes with Dolby Audio enabled by default and the ability to switch between music, movie and voice profiles. Dolby setting made disabled music sound Allow.On the left side, ThinkPad T470p is also a USB 3.0 port, an audio jack, Lenovo’s proprietary power connector, and an optional smart card reader.

Lenovo ThinkPad T470pThe right includes a Kensington lock slot, a Mini DisplayPort, an Ethernet port and two more USB 3.0 ports. An SD card reader stays on the front lip. Although T470p Lenovo’s proprietary flat connector uses it, that’s noteworthy, it requires a 90-watt charger rather than 65 watts units that mostly come with ThinkPads.


With its quad-core Intel Core i5-7440HQ CPU, 8GB of RAM and 256 GB PCIe solid-state drives, our review configuration of ThinkPad T470p is more than powerful enough for serious multitasking and major productivity tasks.

On Geek bench 4, a synthetic benchmark that assesses overall performance, the T470p is a strong 11,590, which is much higher than the 8845 range average, as well as the score from Core i5-7200U, powered ThinkPad T470p (6,699) and AsusPro B9440 Created (7197) and Core i7-7600U-enabled Thinkpad X1 Carbon (7879) and Dell Latitude 5480 (8530).

ThinkPad T470p

Office workers will appreciate the ability to use numbers with great confidence of T470p. The machine is our spreadsheet macro test, which consists of 20,000 names, and 22 seconds matching with their address in 3 minutes, which is faster than the average range (4:25), AsusPro B9440 (04:02) And the whole ThinkPad T470p (4:01). However, the work was completed in the same time as the competitors with Core i7 CPU. Latitude 5480 was also 10 seconds faster.

With its integrated Intel HD Graphics 630 GPU, our T470p 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited is a synthetic test that scored 80,577 runs on graphics skill measures. This is the reason that the range is slightly better than average (78,337) and is higher than the score from X1 Carbon, AsusPro B9440, Latitude 5480 and Thinkpad T470p, which is a dual-core processor with Intel HD Graphics 620 GPUs of all. However, if you are planning to make more video or photo editing, we recommend configuring the T470p with an optional Nvidia GTX 940 graphics card ($ 80 extra).


To copy 4.97GB of mixed media files of 254 GB PCIe SSD of T470p, there is a rate of 299.4 Mbps, which is more comfortable than the 217.2-Mbps range average, it takes only 17 seconds. Regular ThinkPad T470p (267.8) and X1 Carbon (242) were a bit slow, while both Latitude 5480 and AsusPro B9440 were doing well under 200 Mbps.

Thinkpad T470p stayed pleasant during our tests. After we did not have a video stream for 15 minutes, the touchpad hit a cool 79.5 degree, the keyboard only 81 degrees and the lower surface was measured maxed out at 87 degrees Fahrenheit. All of these temperatures are well below our 95-degree comfort point.

Battery Life

Thinkpad T470p can last just about a workday, but only when you use it with optional six-cell batteries. With six-cell batteries on board, the machine is 8 hours and the Laptop Magazine Battery Test, which includes continuous web surfing on Wi-Fi but lasted for a solid but ineffective time of 50 minutes. At that time, the range is much higher than the AsusPro B9440 mark of average (8:12) and 8:26. However, with its six-cell batteries regular Thinkpad T470p, an epic lasted 17 hours and 25 minutes, Thinkpad X1 Carbon for 12 hours and 21 minutes, and Lat 5480 died 11 hours and 37 minutes.

Even the default does not think of using T470p with three cell batteries. Class average less than half – with low capacity battery on the board, the machine lasted only 3 hours and 7 minutes. On the contrary, the regular T470 lasted 8 hours and 39 minutes while using its own three cell batteries.


The Thinkpad T470p’s 720p webcam takes precise pictures with just a bit of visual noise.

When I took the image of my torso under the fluorescent light of our office, the blue in my shirt and my beard saw the truth for the red life, although there was some visible noise behind me.

Software and warranty

Thinkpad T470p are loaded with a couple of useful Lenovo utilities and a few pieces of common Windows 10 bloatware. Lenovo settings let you have fine control over aspects of the system, such as speakers, batteries, and cameras, while the Lenovo Companion software looks and checks system looks for health. The laptop is also in addition to thestart menuu tiles for the Candy Soda Saga, Sling TV, My craft, and the march pre-installed Crush, Fallout Shelter and Asphalt 8.

Lenovo takes the ThinkPad T470p with a one-year limited Deposit Warranty that pays for shipping by both ways you need the service. See how Lenovo demonstrated on our technical support showdown and best and worst brand rating.

Thinkpad T470p starts at $ 944. For that price, you get a laptop with a 1080p screen, a Core i5-7330HQ CPU, RAM 4 GB, a 500GB hard drive, a three-cell battery and Intel integrated HD 630 graphics. Our $ 1,308 review configuration, which provides the best balance between price and performance, base models with one-up core Core i5-7440HQ CPU, RAM, a 256 GB PCIe SSD 8GB and a six-cell battery. You can save $ 80 on this config by going with a slightly slower Core i5-7300HQ processor.

At Lenovo.com, you can configure the laptop with a Core i7 processor, RAM, up to 32GB of a 512GB PCIe SSD and a 2560 x 1440 display. Whatever you choose, you should definitely spend an extra $ 15 for a 256 GB SSD, which is worth $ 210 for the price, for six cell batteries and at least upgraded.

Bottom Line

The Lenovo ThinkPad’s T470p provides strong performance, a great keyboard, and a durable chassis. You like the original T470, but it seems that if you have a 2K screen or low-end Nvidia graphics for a quad-core processor in your laptop, T470p is a good choice.

However, for everyone else, the ThinkPad T470p is a better option, thanks to its longer battery life, soft touch design, and Thunderbolt 3 port. In addition, at least the test we ran into, the gap between the T470P and T470 was small and probably would shrink further if you were to get a T470 that was a core i7 processor. (Our slowest Core was i5.) Users who want to go for a very light and classier laptop that can go for higher cost ThinkPad X1 Carbon, which is an all-soft touch chassis and 12 hours of battery life.

However, if you need to squeeze every bit of processing power out of a mainstream business laptop, the ThinkPad T470p can be for you.
