We have recently tested the new Lenovo ThinkPad E590 with the following configuration :
- Configuration Details:
- Intel Core i7-8565U Processor (8MB Cache, up to 4.60GHz)
- Windows 10 Home 64 – Windows 10 Home 64 WE (EN/FR/DE/NL/IT)
- 16GB DDR4 2400MHz SoDIMM
- 512GB Solid State Drive, M.2 2242, PCIe-NVMe, TLC
- 15.6″FHD (1920×1080),IPS, Anti-glare, 250nits
- AMD Radeon RX 550X 2GB GDDR5 128bits
- Black – Backlit Keyboard Black UK English With Number Pad
- HD 720P Camera with Mic – FingerPrint Black – Enabled Firmware TPM2.0
- 3 Cell Li-Cyllinder Battery 45Wh
- 65W AC Adapter (3pin) – Black – UK (USB Type C)
- Intel Wireless-AC 9260 2×2 AC, Bluetooth 5.0
I have also posted the video on Youtube but here’s our thoughts :
It will hold for 5 hours on the best performance setting , which is how I always kept it but you can also use the mid setting when not doing something that would require that much power. Up to 13 hours with the minimum settings.
- 65W supports Rapid Charge functionality
- Integrated Intel graphics
- AMD Radeon RX 550X, 2GB
The Radeon RX 550X does a very good job , I have installed Diablo 3 – Reaper of Souls and Call Of Duty WW2 , both perfect with the game quality settings to the max.

We have used 3DMark 11 for the benchmark test and we achieved the following score:
- Graphics Score

Processor and RAM
16GB DDR4 and the 4 core new 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-8565U – I don’t think I even have to say anything about this setup as it says it all anyway. Overall this is a very powerful machine that programmers can use while they work and also in their free time to play some games. On user request I have created benchmark on userbenchmark[.]com to share the SSD Drive Speed and here it is. I have recently received an update for the video card and probably that’s the reason that their software didn’t see my Radeon RX card so it affected the overall score but you can see the rest of the components just fine.
The design is very sleek and looks good with the sharp edges and the metallic casing , making this bad boy not only good looking but also very solid and shock resistant , the fingerprint scanner is in the form of a square , it is very responsive and this time I really use it to unlock my laptop. Lenovo’s official website states that the Lenovo Thinkpad E590 weighs from 2.1 Kg but we weighted it and it is actually 1.939 Kg .
Very happy with the purchase , bought it from amazon and it arrived next day. Wasn’t very happy with the sound card at the beginning but if you go through the updates it all gets so much better. The Lenovo Thinkpad E590 is a very good laptop for programmers and businesses ,it is powerful , sleek looking , the battery can hold up to 13 hours which makes the E590 the go to laptop for travelling as well. If you want to buy the same laptop that was used for this review and which is also top of the line follow this link This is by far the best laptop that you can buy with a decent budget. If you want a high spec configuration laptop with a professional and durable design you can safely go for the Lenovo Thinkpad E590
