Product Overview

Lenovo ThinkPad E15 Gen 2 with Intel is a 15.6-inch business laptop powered by 11th-gen, 10nm Tiger Lake Intel Core processors. Released only months after its predecessor, the E15 Gen 2 is offers some feature improvements but shares the Gen 1's design.
Despite its entry-level positioning in the ThinkPad lineup, the E15 Gen 2 drops optional plastic casing. Thanks to the 11th-gen Intel chip, the E15 Gen 2 adds Thunderbolt 4 support. It also offers WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity, both improvements over the ThinkPad E15.
Despite its entry-level positioning, the E14 Gen 2 with AMD is tested against military-grade requirements for durability like all ThinkPad models.
Lenovo also markets the E15 Gen 2 powered by AMD as well as the 14-inch E14 Gen 2 powered by either Intel or AMD.

Sentiment Score 71%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
In day-to-day use, the ThinkPad E15 Gen 2 feels very responsive. There are no freezes or micro-stutters to speak of. The surface temperatures reach up to 47 °C (116.6 °F) under load. The Nvidia GeForce MX450 can run moderately demanding titles smoothly. Older games are, actually, playable at 1080p on high settings.
