In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.

Health-Guard

Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

Of course, for this, one would need a good cooling solution, and as the ThinkPad P15v Gen 2 has shown us - this could be a problem. However, it is not the pure power potential that got us excited about this guy. Once we heard about its customization and upgrade options, nothing else mattered. According to the specs, this machine comes[...]

Disassembly, maintenance and upgrade options

Lenovo has created a nearly desktop experience with this device. It offers a ton of upgradability, with ECC memory support for Xeon-equipped laptops. Check out all Lenovo ThinkPad P15 Gen 2 prices and configurations in our Specs System or read more in our In-Depth review. 1. Remove the service lid This is not your ordinary device. Upgrades here are made easy, but there is some work to do to get to all internal ports. First, on the bottom panel, you will find a service lid. Undo its single Phillips-head captive screw, and pry it with a plastic tool. This will reveal two SODIMM port[...]
