The 14" ThinkBook 14s Laptop from Lenovo is designed with performance, security, and portability for business users. Specs-wise, it's powered by a 1.8 GHz Intel Core i7-8565U quad-core processor, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 256GB M.2 PCIe NVMe solid-state drive. Should you need more space, you can install an additional drive as well as attach external storage solutions using its two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports and one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port.
Its 14" IPS display, driven by a dedicated AMD Radeon 540X chipset with 2GB of GDDR5 memory, features a 1920 x 1080 resolution for crisp and clear HD playback. It also has HDMI 1.4b output that you can use to connect external displays for larger viewing and enhanced multitasking. Other integrated features include Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), Bluetooth 5.0, a 720p webcam, dual noise-canceling microphones, 2W Harman speakers, a fingerprint reader, a backlit keyboard, and an audio in/out jack. A 65W slim tip power adapter is also included to keep your laptop powered. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Pro (64-Bit).
Work Smarter-Not Harder
The ThinkBook 14s is packed with features that make it faster and easier to focus on your business. Boot up and log in with a simple touch. Use hot keys to answer or hang up when making conference calls. Even use Cortana with voice recognition to tell your device to wake up.
Easy on the Eyes
The narrow bezel display on the ThinkBook 14s is as functional as it is attractive. By minimizing the size of the bezel, the screen size increases without the chassis getting bigger. This 14" laptop has a starting weight of just 3.3 lb to take with you wherever you go. The Full HD display delivers a wide-angle viewing experience and, with hinges that open 180 degrees, it's easy to collaborate and share.
Built-in security features protect your business-critical info. The default discrete Trusted Platform Module encrypts data and works in conjunction with Windows 10 security features. A physical camera cover blocks the lens, ensuring that you're only seen when you want to be. A fingerprint reader is integrated with the power button, so a simple touch logs you in and boots up the system immediately.
Built to Last Longer
ThinkBook laptops must pass multiple quality and reliability tests such as anti-spill protection for up to 60cc of water, extreme temperatures, and vibrations. The zinc-alloy hinge includes powdered-metal technology to endure 25,000 open-and-close cycles, and it's coated with indium to enhance resistance to corrosion.
A Device That Keeps up with You
When you're on the go, you can't be worried about finding electrical outlets. That's why the ThinkBook 14s delivers up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge. Get through your workday and then some.
Based on testing with MobileMark 2014. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors.
Windows 10 Pro (64-Bit)
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana, can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the Internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information-gathering skills.
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
Windows 10 Pro
The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for business users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.
