Lenovo ThinkPad E15 Laptop w/ Intel

MSRP 899 USDNEX score 76%

Product Overview

Lenovo ThinkPad E15 is an entry-level 15.6-inch business laptop powered by 10th-gen Intel Core U-series processors. Built with SMB users in mind, the ThinkPad E15 is still tested against military-grade requirements for durability, despite its market positioning.
For optimal security, all data, including log-in details, are encrypted by the discrete Trusted Platform Module [dTPM] 2.0 chip. The user can also physically close the webcam with the ThinkShutter cover. Smart Power On biometric fingerprint reader is optionally integrated to the power button.
In this generation, Lenovo also markets a 14-inch ThinkPad E14 that drops the numpad.
