Lenovo ThinkPad L15 15.6" Laptop

MSRP 649 USDNEX score 70%

Product Overview

Lenovo ThinkPad L15 is a 15.6-inch entry-level business laptop powered by 10th-gen Intel Core Comet Lake U-series processors. It follows the earlier ThinkPad L580 into Lenovo's new naming scheme.
Despite its market positioning, the ThinkPad L15 still retains robust build quality. In this case, the tradeoff is in performance. The ThinkPad L15 is tested against 12 military-grade requirements and more than 200 quality checks to ensure their robustness. For enhanced security, the ThinkShield security solutions and the discrete Trust Platform Module (dTPM) encrypts your data.
As a 2020 model, the L15 also features WiFi 6 and optional LTE-A WWAN to ensure fast network connection in all professional and personal use cases.
Alongside the ThinkPad L15, Lenovo also introduced the 14-inch L14.
