If you want the best combination of usability and portability in a business notebook, look no further than the Thinkpad T450s. Even amongst ThinkPads, the T450s has a superior keyboard with deep travel and snappy feedback. In addition to its best-in-class typing experience, the 14-inch notebook has an extremely-durable chassis, a sharp 1080p display and more than 15 hours of endurance with its extended battery.
Though it costs under $200, Lenovo still equipped the 11.6-inch, Ideapad 100S with a bright screen, springy keyboard and colorful chassis. The 2.2-pound Windows 10 laptop lasted a full 9 hours and 48 minutes on our battery test. That's plenty of unplugged time you can use to edit documents or crunch numbers in Office 365 Personal, which comes free for a year when you buy the 100S.
As the convertible-computer market leader, Lenovo knows a thing or two about making a great 2-in-1. The Yoga 900 is the flagship device in Lenovo's line of sleek, stylish hybrids. The 2-in-1 features an improved version of its eye-catching watchband hinge, a speedy 6th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU and a gorgeous 13.3-inch 3200 x 1800 rotating display. This year's edition of the flagship hybrid increases the device's battery life by 25 percent, to 8 hours, so you won't feel anxious when you're away from a plug. Plus, the watchband hinge is even stiffer, so the screen doesn't bounce or flop around even when in unusual positions.
For just $179, this 11.6-inch Chromebook provides over 11 hours of battery life with solid performance and a lightweight, 2.52-pound chassis. Though a little stiff, the 100S Chromebook's keyboard offers plenty of vertical travel and a solid, flex-free base.
Made for maximum productivity, the ThinkPad Yoga 260 pairs a comfortable stylus with the most responsive keyboard you'll find on any 2-in-1 this size. Like other Yogas, the 260's 12.5-inch screen bends back a full 360 degrees to go into tablet, presentation or tent modes. Add in Lenovo's unique WRITEit app, which lets you scribble directly into any text field and you have an experience that feels a lot like using a real pen on paper.
Starting at under 3 pounds, the Lenovo ThinkPad X250 packs plenty of pop, an optional 1080p display and over 15 hours of endurance. Better still, this lightweight laptop sports a snappy keyboard, a durable chassis and a full compliment of ports, including Ethernet and an SD card reader.
Whether you're editing large video files, designing a new building using CAD software or trying to predict where to drill for oil next, the ThinkPad W550s is the powerful, workstation-class laptop you've been waiting for. This 15.5-inch behemoth features a powerful Core i7 CPU, high-end Nvidia Quadro K620M graphics and a 2880 x 1620 display, along with Lenovo's best-in-class keyboard. With its extended battery, the W550s gets over 16 hours of battery life, more than enough to perform demanding work on location, without plugging in.
There's a lot to like about Lenovo's affordable 15-inch gaming rig. Thanks to its Quad-Core Core i7 CPU and Nvidia GTX 860M graphics, the Y50 packs a lot of graphics prowess into its 5.4-pound, 0.9-inch thick frame. With a starting price of just $949 and a simple, but attractive, design, this is one rig that won't drag down your wallet or your living room aesthetic.
