Laptops for creative users -such as those who publish content on YouTube, Tik Tok, or Twitch- are becoming increasingly fashionable, and Lenovo did not want to miss the opportunity to present its latest proposal in this regard, the Lenovo ThinkBook 16p Gen 3.

This laptop comes with a sober design that deceives: inside we find high-flying components that even pose as more than decent gaming equipment.

Deceptively understated design

When viewed from the outside, the design of this Lenovo ThinkBook 16p Gen 3 can be misleading. This is a design that seems more oriented to business and professional equipment and not so much to creative or gaming environments.

Thus, we have a duotone case with two different “textures” on top and a large logo that identifies this laptop as a full-fledged member of the ThinkBook family.

The ventilation grilles on the back and sides are also remarkable and escort the connectivity ports, which are wide and varied and certainly leave virtually no section to cover: it also features the HDMI 2.1 port.

The interior is again sober: the full-size keyboard is accompanied by a numeric keypad – the 16 inches give room for maneuver here – and a touchpad of decent dimensions but which one would perhaps expect to be even larger.

An eye-catching bet for creators and gamers

Indeed, the device is not a pure gaming laptop, but its features bring it close to that segment. Lenovo offers the ability to configure it with up to an AMD Ryzen 9 H-series.

This allows you to have high TDPs for performance to go up quite a few notches compared to the U families that are often used in Ultrabooks.

In addition, we can accompany this processor with up to 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 2 TB of storage in a PCIe 4.0 SSD. Here the real gaming orientation is given by the dedicated graphics, which can be a decent RTX 3060.

That proposal is further consolidated with an interesting option for the display: in the “normal” model we have a 16-inch diagonal, 2.5K resolution, 60 Hz refresh rate, and 400 nits of brightness.

However, Lenovo also offers an optional panel with 165 Hz and 500 nits of brightness. It is this one that certainly confirms this ambition in the field of gaming.

Wi-Fi connectivity is well served with support for Wi-Fi 6 (but not 6E) and Bluetooth 5.0 (again sufficient, but not the latest version). In ports we have a bit of everything: we have USB-C ports, USB-A, SD reader, and even an HDMI 2.1 port that connects this laptop with monitors (or Smart TVs) that support the advantages of that version of the standard.

Along with the 71 Whr battery, we have an HD webcam and the option of having a facial recognition IR sensor. If we do not opt for it we can always enjoy the fingerprint reader integrated into the power button.
