Looking to buy ThinkPad P14s Gen 2 Intel

Intel i5 11th gen CPU
16GB DDR4 RAM
Nvidia quadro T500 4GB DDR6 graphics card
512GB SSD
14” FHD screen

Most important is the quadro graphics card for me to run research simulation softwares.

RM4,948 via lenovo official website

You guys think this is a good buy?

Or should i get P15s model with similar spec but having 15.6” screen?

Budget: ~rm5.5k
Purpose: running research simulation softwares

Thanks for your feedbacks.

Hello all, would like to ask what's the best bang for buck Thinkpad?

preference is it must be non Refurbished, not so old model, screen 13 or 14 inch, min 8gb ram, min 256gb SSD, not so outdated CPU, budget around 3 to 4k, maybe can stretch abit.

Use only for MS office n movies

can take a look at Honor Magicbook X15, although specs are a bit low (shouldn't be a problem for your usage)

Hi, looking for laptop for office type work (no need dgpu). Priority would be able to last long (build quality) as well as good battery life. 14-15 inch, budget RM3k. I saw from the ultrabook thread there's ideapad 5 and Acer swift 3, so something along those lines but whichever can possibly last the longest (for older person to use so don't want to have to replace it anytime soon)

If longevity is your priority better get business laptops like thinkpad

not sure your budget can stretch a bit to get Thinkpad L14 G2 AMD or L15 G2 AMD (with coupon)

T14/T15/P14s/P15s has bad cooling and poor GPU perf when paired with dGPU, not recommending getting dGPU on these models

not as premium but still decent, it's catered towards consumer more instead of business

still a decent model overall (can't say the same for older E series era like Ex70 or older)
