I will report in into my new workplace next Monday, 22nd August 2022. This means, I have 3 more days before I started my new job. I was supposed to receive my laptop last week. But due to some technical issues, the delivery was delayed.
After the technical issues has been cleared up, the company's internal IT informed me that he will sent the laptop using DHL. He will arrange a courier and I can expect the laptop to arrive between Thursday or Friday.
It was Thursday, and I was in midst of delivering customer's order when I got a call from the DHL courier. The courier said that he has a package for me, and he wanted to confirm the delivery address.
Once I have confirmed my address, he told me that he will arrive at my place in another one hour. Since I am not at home, I called my wife and asked her to receive the package on my behalf.
I am excited hearing that my new laptop has arrived. I didn't know what is the model and specifications of the laptop that the company has provided to me. I only know the brand which is Lenovo.
Usually I will be doing GrabFood delivery between 6 to 8 hours. But I was to excited to see the new laptop. I only did a total of 5 hours for today. After dropping the last order, I straight away went home.
The first thing that I noticed when I opened my house is the laptop box that was sitted on the dining table. I pick up the box and start unboxing the laptop. At the side of the box were a sticker stating the specifications of the laptop.
From the sticker, the model and the summary of the laptop's specifications are as below:
Model: Lenovo ThinkPad T14 Gen 2.
|CPU||Intel i7 1185 G7|
|RAM||32 GB LPDDR4x-4266|
|Storage||512GB PCIe NVMe, PCIe x4|
|Graphic||Intel Iris Xe Graphics|
|Network||LAN: Intel Ethernet I219-LM. Wireless: Intel Wi-Fi 6E AX210, 802.11ax 2x2. Bluetooth: version 5.2|
|WWAN||Integrated Mobile Broadband 4G LTE, Quectel EM120R-GL, M.2 card|
The general spec can be referred to Lenovo's website Lenovo website for T14s Gen 2
This laptop specifications are most definitely higher than my previous company laptop. What I like the most is the laptop charger is using a 65 watt type-c charger. I can use the same charger to change my smartphone
I've tried to configure the laptop upon powering it up. However, the laptop need to be connected into the company's intranet before it can be use. Meaning, I need to bring the laptop to office before I can start using it. For time being, there is nothing that I can do with that laptop except for charging it's battery.
Honestly, I'm a bit disappointed. I was thinking to install few games to try the laptop performance over the weekend...
