Longer lasting. Lenovo's ThinkPad L460 does not offer many new features. The Skylake processors provide a bit more computing power, and the L440 clearly has a longer battery life.
The casing of the L460 has not been modified compared with the T460. The ThinkPad's casing is completely made of plastic. Lenovo relies on a straightforward, angular shape that is appealing. The color of choice is black-gray. The laptop does not sport an optical drive. Lenovo offers three different batteries (23.5 Wh, 48 Wh, 72 Wh) for the ThinkPad. Our review sample carries the medium-sized model (48 Wh). It juts out of the casing's underside by approximately 1 cm. The casing of the L450/L460 is a step backward in terms of maintenance. Former ThinkPad L models still had maintenance hatches, unlike the L450/L460. The base tray has to be removed to access the innards. That is quite easy to do, but more about that later.
The laptop's build is overall good. Only insignificant details are noticed. For example, the plastic edges are not completely deburred, and a slight protrusion is palpable. The casing's stiffness does not give much reason for complaint, either. The base unit can be twisted a bit too evidently for our taste. A mobile laptop that is used in the most different locations should not have weaknesses in this regard. That is also true for the laptop's lid. Pressure on the lid's back only causes image distortions in some places. The hinges have a firm hold on the lid. Opening the lid with one hand is easily possible.
Intel's Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 Wi-Fi module is inside the ThinkPad. It supports the 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac standards and also provides Bluetooth 4.2. We did not encounter connection issues. The connection was always stable in a 15-meter radius around our router. The ThinkPad also sports a Gigabit Ethernet port. The chip also comes from Intel (I219-V). It did an impeccable job.
The installed memory-card reader is relatively fast. A maximum transfer rate of 82.4 MB/s is reached when copying large data blocks. Transferring 250 JPG image files (approx. 5 MB each) is performed at a speed of 61.7 MB/s. We test the memory-card reader with our Toshiba Exceria Pro SDXC 64 GB UHS-II reference card.
The ThinkPad offers diverse security features. For example, a fingerprint reader for biometric authentication is on board. A Trusted Platform module is also present. The laptop is optionally available with a SmartCard reader. Our review sample does not have this reader.
The ThinkPad is shipped with the usual accessories: A quick-start poster and warranty information.
The review sample that we were provided with did not have an operating system. Installing Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 was easily possible. Lenovo provides drivers for all three versions. Before our L460 test, an owner of an L460 model turned to our editorial office for assistance. We were asked to check whether the same errors he had been experiencing also occurred in our review sample. The reader built an M.2 SSD into the laptop and installed Windows 10 on it. The operating system stuttered and recurrently froze. We could not reproduce this behavior on our review sample. Possible reasons could be a defect laptop/SSD, incompatibility of the used SSD with the laptop and/or missing drivers.
A second issue also troubles the user. Windows 10 was delivered on the included SSD this time. The user set the sleep mode via power button in Windows 10. When the laptop was awakened, the fan started to spin at full speed after about 15 seconds. 5 seconds later, the laptop shut down. We could not reproduce this behavior, either. Again, missing or faulty drivers are likely responsible here. Of course, a defect laptop cannot be excluded.
The ThinkPad L460 is essentially available with the docking port known from the L450. Thus, corresponding docking stations can also be used with the L460. However, Lenovo does not incorporate docking ports in models .Thus, a USB 3.0 solution would have to be used if a docking station were to be connected to our review sample.
