Unless a display has all three - 350 nits of brightness, 90% sRGB color gamut and 1000:1 contrast ratio - at the very minimum which is only average for mid-range laptops, it is beneath the current standard. The only FHD displays on Thinkpads surpassing this baseline are X1 and more recent P series. Add to the insult is that Thinkpads are supposed to be the top premium and golden professional standard, as defined by their pricing. Hence all the disappointing reaction from the crowd.

Even HP has been offering 100% sRGB, 700 nits FHD IPS screens ACROSS ALL Elitebooks, without taking away any cheaper and more expensive alternatives.
E and L series, regardless of their supply lottery or screen resolutions are simply inadequate and not up to scratch. It's your loss Lenovo.

I own the laptop. The display is seriously great, for the money its a bang. Not sure if i am lucky with my display or not, but the IPS display seriously made me amazed, way better then the competition in the price range. Just be careful to choose the higher spec fullHD ips display. Was fairy surprised how the E models are well built.
The Lenovo's displays changes between areas, depends in supplies and sub-model that loacl importer has been order. I've get better display then this review, and a LOT better SSD.

Just ask local buyers for review, and research in Lenovo prefs db for exactly parts of local machine model. There is no other way to know.

bullshit review.

I got this laptop 2 days ago just for battery life but this review is fucking misleading. it  depletes faster than my dell 7559 (and you know its a gaming laptop) and screen brightness SUCKS!

E480 has been one of the terrible ones. The display was horrible even with the 1920 IPS option. In fact almost all of the laptops, this one, T480,T480s have horrible displays. The colors and brightness are darker even when you pump up the brightness to the max. I would not touch these again, might go with Dell though even there some displays are not that great. It just seems that the 1920 and over res is not working well with laptops as they get smaller and thinner. oh well.

EDIT: I disabled write cache buffer flushing for the disk and the write speed is now 1300 MB/s! How one tickbox can affect the performance so much?

Risky. From the net: "Having this option selected will put your filesystem and any important data stored on the drive at risk in the event of any external interruptions such as power failures."

Lenovo lies in the specification.
lsusb -t in Linux returns only a 5000M device, ie 3.1 and not 3.2.
Unbelievable

Hello,

Where can you buy this laptop for the price stated (599 euros) ?

Why there are no links to shops ?

indaugas quote:
"Hard to understand what though the producer putting only 4 GB RAM in WIN 10 64 bit system?!"

My friend, I think you're absolutely right with it. But I guess, guys who reads notebookcheck's reviews won't buy such configuration ever!
Due they understand what you understand and I understand).
Thist 88% rating of laptop (I see that so), but not the configuration obviously.

Really, producers, windows 10-64 and 4 Gb RAM? Are you kidding? There are plenty wonderful OSs for low RAM capacity, based on Linux ofc...

Hard to understand what though the producer putting only 4 GB RAM in WIN 10 64 bit system?! And what is this - 88% rating for the computer which is designed to work only with Word or Excel??
Dear www.notebookcheck.net, please stop misleading the consumers giving 88% rating for the computer which useless even working with internet browser.

About the poor write performance with this unit, try this:

Could you, please, take a look at Standard NVME Controller options in Device Manager for its IDs? Double click, Details tab, Option list, Hardware IDs entry. Copy the values from the field below and post here.

Unpretentious workhorse! After having recently reviewed the 2018 ThinkPad equipped with a Radeon RX 550 GPU, we now have the entry-level SKU in our lab. We are particularly interested in temperatures, which were the E480's most pronounced and prominent weak spot.
