The dongle-hiding Lenovo ThinkBook 14 is great if you get the right screen


Since it acquired IBM’s personal computer business back in 2005, Lenovo’s been cranking out excellent ThinkPad laptops for folks who want the best business hardware money can buy. But if you don’t have plenty to spend on your next laptop, you can check out the company’s ThinkBook line, which borrows some nifty features from ThinkPads, but are designed to be more affordable.

I’ve been testing one of the recently launched models in this lineup — the ThinkBook 14 — and there’s a lot to like about this discreet, no-nonsense laptop. Aside from its commendable performance and selection of ports, I want to tell you about two notable features on this baby — one that every laptop should have, and another no laptop should even offer as an option.
