Lenovo ThinkPad E470 Review and Unboxing
When the laptop was flipped, it reveals the laptop design. The laptop keyboard is a typical alpha numeric notebook keyboard but has a noticeable enlarged keys. The enlarge keys prove to be
ideal for heavy encoding or typing of characters. Often, smaller keyboard buttons makes typing error prone but thanks to the good keyboard design, the laptop will be good for data encoding and word processor typing for home, school and office. Of course, these is the trackpoint at the center colored in red. The fingerprint sensor is on the rightmost part of the laptop, which is somewhat placed there with right handed in mind. Anyways, the 14 inch lcd screen completes the first impression with Lenovo ThinkPad E470.
The slim body is a good factor. The lack of optical disk drive is noted, as well as VGA port. The unit provides an HDMI port for projector and external monitor that is usable during presentation or work. Card reader and 3 USB ports also seen from the laptop sides. The machine will run Windows 10, but not Windows 7 as this is a Kabylake Intel Processor powered. But as more people embrace Windows 10, this will not be affecting most of new laptop buyers.
Certain tweaks has to be done on the system. The system is preloaded with the OS installed. Automatic driver updates affected the screen and the trackpad, but having those sorted out by manual driver download and installation makes the laptop usable again.
The laptop is priced around Php 37,000. The cost included the operating system Windows 10 Professional which is a must for corporate domain considering the laptop is a business type. The materials used is sturdy. The laptop also runs cool for long time of use during the unboxing. WIFI is stable, which is also a good thing to note for a user that needs reliable internet and LAN access.
Overall we see the laptop as best value for money given the specs outlined below and the actual unbox with usage.
