The Ryzen 7 4700U processor was designed for ultra-thin laptops and is definitely a competitor of Intel’s Core i7 chips, but why the new addition to Lenovo? Jerry Paradise, vice president of global commercial portfolio and product management at Lenovo said “AMD’s Ryzen for Business portfolio delivers advanced performance, security and battery life to our ThinkPad portfolio. We are delighted to partner with AMD and leverage their ground-breaking 7nm process technology within our ThinkPad laptops”.

Both versions of the T14S have the same 14″ FHD IPS Low Power Display (1920×1080), the same number of ports (see table) and optional 4G LTE connectivity, as well as 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD PCIe NVMe Opal storage. The Intel Core comes with Intel UHD graphics, while the Ryzen Core has AMD Radeon graphics.

In terms of performance, the Ryzen 7 Pro 4750U against the Intel Core i7-10710U processor, the most powerful 15W TDP chip in Intel’s arsenal, the Ryzen 7 dominates with up to 22% better productivity performance than it’s Intel competitor, and with the AMD Radeon graphics it makes light work of even the toughest tasks.

Whichever version is your preference, weighing in at a lightweight 1.27kg and with rapid-charge technology providing 0-80% battery charging in an hour, you can rely on the T14S to be portable when you need it – even in these new working from home times, we’re bound to start heading out to more meetings again in the future, with the LTE 4G option, you can be connected wherever you are without the need to find WiFi, making the T14S perfect for mobile working.
