    I would like it if there's very little fan noise, because I'll be carrying it with me to lectures, so should I look at low TDP or low wattage models? The laptop will be probably connected to a desktop dock with external monitors, speakers, a keyboard and mouse most of the time though. I'm also not into gaming so there's no need for anything too beefy.

    I also have same Query, but I'm only considering ThinkBook 15 ryzen 5 7530u, but I'm having second thoughts about ryzen 7 7730u as it scores almost 10k (multi-core) on r23 whereas r5 7530u scores 8.5k (multi-core) but I've heard things about ThinkBook 15 45Wh battery being just adequate for r5, makes me think twice about r7 with high consumption, but I've heard there's a big 60Wh battery available to purchase separately which may increase the weight.
    If there are anyone who owns a ThinkBook or knows something about them, please help us.
