Hardware and software problems and issues with the Lenovo Thinkpad T460 ultrabook
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 unreliabilityUltrabooks 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.
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 issuesWhen 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. 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 also does a great job but it is not for sale in computer stores anymore.
