2018 Opel Insignia review
The beautiful Insignia at the Sofia Motor Show

Opel Insignia
has always been one of my favorites in the middle sized sedan segment. The first generation impressed with solid build quality and modern design that attracted many buyers across the world (sold as Buick in United States, Vauxhall in UK and Holden in Australia).

Lenovo Thinkpad T460 ultrabook - problems and issues

Hardware and software problems and issues with the Lenovo Thinkpad T460 ultrabook

Lenovo Thinkpad T460 ultrabook issues
Working on Lenovo Thinkpad T460 could be quite stressful sometimes

Lenovo Thinkpad T460 is one of the most popular ultrabooks in 2017 but unfortunately it gained its popularity thanks to the problems and issues it can cause to its users.

High-end ultrabook unreliability

Ultrabooks are usually quite expensive because of their quality parts and extreme productivity. Businesses usually spend a lot of money on such laptops in order to trust them for most daily computing activities. And here is where the Lenovo Thinkpad T460 really fails - it is unreliable.

Lenovo Thinkpad T460 laptop

On paper the T460 is really a good computer with top of the line components but in reality it is million miles away from its direct competitors like Dell.

Problems and issues

When I first tested the Thinkpad T460 couple of months ago I instantly noticed that it does't offer the smoothest experience taken right out of the box. Of course later on a lot of software need to be installed on this brand new machine and that made things really bad for the T460. It constantly lags and crashes without any obvious reason and that is a huge reliability problem, especially if this is your primary work machine.

Lenovo Legion y520-15ikbn gaming laptop


Connectivity issues is a constant and connecting to VPN through WiFi sometimes may take couple of resets before things even get going (slowly).

No matter the fact that the Lenovo I tested had more than enough RAM and processing power sometimes it surprises me how hard it is to manage simple daily tasks.

The battery performance is one of its strong characteristics but it really can't make it up for the overall bad impressions leaves most of the time.

The trackpad is another thing that frustrates many of the T460's users - it is far from accurate and it is not rare that it would miss a click.

I can keep on going and tell you about how bad and ridiculous the its display looks for $2000 laptop but I don't want to take more of your time and share my problems and issues with the Thinkpad T460. If you need good performing laptop you should definitely check something like the Dell XPS or Latitude 7450 which both I think are just amazing.

My old Dell Latitude e7240 also does a great job but it is not for sale in computer stores anymore.
