Lenovo ThinkPad T470s Review and Specifications

May 1, 2020

The Lenovo ThinkPad T470s is one of the notebooks that Lenovo hardly updated this year, and the major construction is similar to the previous Lenovo ThinkPad T460s. The differences are confined to the inclusion of a USB-C port (including Thunderbolt 3) and Intel’s new Kaby Lake processors. Our review unit also comes with a different Wide Quad-HD panel.

Our review configuration represents the high-end model that will cost $2256. It is powered by the fastest ULV Core i7 processor which the Intel is currently offering, a Wide Quad-HD panel, 16GB RAM and a massive 1 TB Samsung’s NVMe-SSD. There is no corresponding Topseller version for regular buyers so far, but we expect it to be a couple of hundred Dollars more costly. A similar model in Lenovo’s online shop (configured) currently retails for almost $3063.
