The Lenovo ThinkPad series is one of the longest running and most successful series of laptops till date. This lineup got even wider with two new additions now – the Lenovo ThinkPad E15 and Lenovo ThinkPad E14. Now, you may be wondering that we already do have these two budget laptops. However, if you may note that the E15 and E14 variants we have currently are all Intel variants. Given the popularity of Ryzen-powered laptops in the market, it only makes sense for Lenovo to hop in on the hot trend.
The newly launched variants are powered by Ryzen 5000 series chipsets. Besides, they come with fast charging support. According to Lenovo, this fast charging tech can charge up the laptops up to 80 per cent in an hour. We also get fingerprint sensors on both the laptops alongside backlit keyboards. Here’s a quick rundown of all the details!

For now, only the European pricing of the two laptops are known. Going by that, we can draw a rough estimate of how much they will cost in India. The Lenovo ThinkPad E15 price starts at EUR 719. This converts to roughly around Rs. 60,500 in the Indian currency. Meanwhile, the ThinkPad E14 price starts at EUR 569.
