The ThinkPad T-se­ries boasts a no-non­sense de­sign with a fo­cus on ro­bust­ness over style. Even so, the T460s’ 18.8mm thick­ness is within 1mm of the MacBook, and it’s lighter at 1.4kg. You also get the best key­board and track­pad here.

But de­spite hav­ing an iden­ti­cal pro­ces­sor to the Sur­face Book, the T460s’ Cinebench score was the slow­est on test. A lack­lus­tre five hours 18 min­utes bat­tery life makes it dou­bly dis­ap­point­ing, though the SSD stor­age does man­age to out­per­form even the Chill­blast, and it re­ally perks up gen­eral us­age. While the Full HD screen looks good in iso­la­tion, colour sat­u­ra­tion and con­trast are more muted than on its ri­vals, and it’s less crisp. On the up­side, it’s got the rare ad­di­tion of an anti-re­flec­tive coat­ing.


Ex­cel­lent build and er­gonomics; fast SSD; matte screen; thin & light


Slow pro­ces­sor; rel­a­tively av­er­age view­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and bat­tery life

We say

Good, but the same money can buy you a bet­ter screen and more power Over­all score

It’s no photo edit­ing won­der, but good porta­bil­ity and a great key­board make it a de­cent gen­eral pur­pose ma­chine
