Lenovo ThinkPad E470 Driver – Intel Kaby Lake processors have been popular in the last few months and have seen them on many laptop computers. Due to longer product cycles and increased development and testing costs in the business sector, the new Kaby Lake processors are entering the business notebook segment.
Lenovo took time to build the next installment of the ThinkPad series, but now the Chinese manufacturer is ready to show the ThinkPad e470 series 14-inch (less than 600 euros/~ $638 for students) to the world. The laptop does not include an operating system, but we were surprised to see the various features offered in the most basic configurations of this model: a i3 processor, 8 GB of RAM, a 256 GB SSD and an IPS FHD panel. Our test configuration is available for approximately 700 euros (~ $745) with a stronger Core i5 CPU and a dedicated GeForce 940MX GPU. This system should have more power for game enthusiasts.The E470 series has a simple but functional design, which is slightly different from that of the predecessor, the E460: The shape of the screen hinges and the positioning of the power button have changed. This is mainly a fine adjustment on the part of the manufacturer and will not significantly improve the user experience.
Taking into account the modern mobility standards, the E470 series has little mobility because it weighs 1.9 kg (~ 4.2 lb) and has a thickness of 24 mm (~ 0.94 in). High-end models, such as T460s (1.35 kg/~ 3 lb), 19 mm/~ 0.75 in, and direct competitors such as the HP model (ProBook 440 G4:1.65 kg/~ 3.6 lb, 20 mm/~ 0.78 in), are alternatives that offer better mobility. However, Lenovo has been able to create a very rugged casing, without using lightweight metal materials. The screen cover should be a bit thicker, but at the end of the day the manufacturer has done a good job. The new central hinge is ideal as it always maintains a firm grip on the screen, which can be turned up to 180 degrees.
Lenovo ThinkPad E470 Driver – Unfortunately, the E series still refuses to assume the modern C-type USB ports. The test model is based on 3x USB type A ports (2x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0). In addition, the laptop lacks a DisplayPort interface. These deficits are understandable if you consider the costs of these characteristics and their suitability for the target audience. Potential buyers should know that the HDMI 1.4 interface can only send to a 4k screen at 30 Hz. Officially, Lenovo only specifies the support for 1920×1080 pixels (at 60 Hz).
Due to the displacement of the ventilation opening, all ports have been moved to new locations. The new design is suitable for right-handed users, as most cables (power adapter, Ethernet, HDMI) are located in the rear left region of the laptop.
Depending on the file size, the maximum transfer rate of the SD card reader (tested with a Toshiba Exceria Pro SDXC 64 GB UHS-II) is maintained between 70 and 80 MB/S. This is a decent result, which places our test model between low-end models with a 2.0 USB reader (max. Approximately 30 MB/s) and premium notebooks with UHS II support (200 MB/sy plus).
Lenovo ThinkPad E470 Driver – We were surprised to see that our ThinkPad did not use an Intel wireless adapter. Rather, the manufacturer has chosen a Qualcomm adapter. This module is compatible with Bluetooth 4.1 and all typical WLAN standards on the frequencies of 2.4 and 5 GHz. With Dual-Stream (2×2 TX/RX) technology, it should be possible to reach transfer rates of up to 866 Mb/s in 802.11 ac networks. In our tests, with optimal conditions (short distance to the LinkSys EA8500 router), the test model reached about 600 MB/s while receiving data. This places the e470 series among the best laptops for wireless performance and only a few models can claim to do a better job: (Apple) devices with Triple-Stream technology.
