The Lenovo ThinkPad E14 is available with either Intel UHD or Iris Xe graphics. The laptop does not feature a secondary RAM slot or a soldered-in RAM module. It is small and lightweight enough for working on the go, and the keyboard is a joy to type on and you've got a diverse set of security features.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from Laptopmag have found the following[***]:
Lenovo is marketing the ThinkPad E Series as “affordable productivity.” Given the pricing structure, that's true to a point, but you've got to look between the lines. Customisation options in the U.S. are limited, so the highest spec model sets you back $1,429.35. The 14-inch, 1080p display is bright and sharp enough for the essential workload.

Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo ThinkPad E14 Gen 2 comes with two Intel CPUs: the Core i5-1135G7 and the i7-1165G7. Intel variants have Intel Iris Xe Graphics (96 EUs), and there is also an Intel model with an optional dedicated GPU (N Nvidia GeForce MX450) Despite a huge jump in performance when compared to the Intel-based predecessor, the iGPU version of the Think Pad E14Gen 2 is still not a good choice for gaming.

Reviewers from Pcworld have found the following[***]:
The ThinkPad E14 Gen 2 weighs 3.5 pounds and measures 0.7 inches thick. It's one of Lenovo's heftier business laptops, with an ethernet jack and anti-glare screen. For a 14-inch laptop, the E14 trackpad is on the small side, especially with its dedicated mouse button row on top.
