With an 11th gen Intel CPU you can be assured that the laptop has a recent CPU. Whilst not the latest, due to the release of the Intel 12 Series CPUs, it is still recent. However, with the release of the 12th gen you may wish to choose that instead to ensure the longevity of your new laptop.

There's a Integrated graphics card which is a Intel Iris Xe.

An integrated card tends to not offer as much graphics processing power as a dedicated video card.

The maximum memory capacity is 40 GB via the 1 (1 Available) memory slots.

The maximum memory capacity is 40 GB via the 1 (0 Available) memory slots.

The RAM slot type is 260-Pin SO-DIMM.

Because at least one of the ram slots in the Lenovo 14" ThinkBook 14 G2 is replaceable, you will be able to upgrade the ram at a later date.

From the factory, there is a single free slot you can use. You'd be able to take this home and throw in an extra stick of ram straight away, or even ask them at the shop to help you out and possibly install it for you.

You'll find Wifi 5 inside the laptop, which is the previous generation. However, this does not mean its necessarily a major disadvantage. Wifi 5 is more than capable for the majority of the users, with only top tier users really requiring Wifi 6 at the moment.

You'll find Wifi 6 inside the laptop, which is the current generation. This gives you a small step up in terms of future-proofing your tech, yet may not give you much of an advantage over wifi 5 unless your router and the rest of your setup is up to scratch.

Overall, the ThinkBook 14 just checks the right boxes. The performance is there, the keyboard is there, and the battery life is there. Indeed, the battery life is pretty great, and that's with the smaller battery installed in this unit. Overall, there's a ton of value here.
