Fans are always on for mine too. Contacted Lenovo and they said it needed warranty service. They sent it back after replacing the fan (as if that would fix the fan settings). Of course nothing changed but then I noticed electrical noises and power drain even when shut down. So I sent it back in and they said they'd make sure to fix the fan this time. They've held it for weeks now 'waiting on a part'. Already past the deadline and no update from them. It's been almost 2 months since I bought the thing and haven't been able to use it. Had to contact Lenovo 10+ times because they wouldn't send the shipping label or box when they said they would, and several times they said it was already sent but they never really did. Just delay after delay and straight up lies. Nightmare of customer service - and I've been extremely patient with them. I'm definitely never buying Lenovo again
I daily a 'G2' version of this, and the fan was a huge issue until I found a video on youtube where they showed how to enable the 'processor performance boost mode' in the power option of win10. Seems Lenovo has this hidden/disabled, and set at 'Aggressive' so the fans would go max speed whenever the CPU did anything.

Once I made the registry change I changed the setting from aggressive to efficiently enabled, and the fan now only cuts on when I' really pushing the machine.
ThinkBook is NOT ThinkPad range. ThinkPad > ThinkBook > Ideapad.

if this had a backlit keyboard I might bite. Just not sure about that 8GB ram and no ram upgrade possible? How is 8GB for a college student. I feel like backlit keyboard is a must for the dorm room with roommate sleeping.

If you're just doing regular web browsing and word processing/office tasks this is enough. Gaming, programming, and content creation would be use cases suited for 16gb.

How do you guys think this compares to this deal:
https://slickdeals.net/f/15760228-hp-pavilion-15z-eh100-laptop-15-fhd-ryzen-5-5500u-8gb-ram-256gb-ssd-480-fs-at-hp?v=1

Its still alive and with student discount, it is only $10 more ($439) for the silver HP (fog blue color made it $10 more)

Lenovo is going to be more premium feeling. It's geared to business so possibly better in the long run

One is 13" , one is 15". Totally different use cases. Depends what you value/need.

Definitely Lenovo if your eyes are ok with its resolution on a 13". HP's screen is not IPS (which Lenovo has) and is already more expensive with lesser CPU. Plastic (HP) vs aluminum (Lenovo) construction also is not something you want to compare. I am actually surprised Lenovo's thinkbook line can be priced so low. That's idealpad's price range.

Great deal, just note, the fans are always on. Mine also made a high pitch noise anytime they ramped up.

I ripped mine out and disabled turbo on my cpu. Battery life is great now and it hardly ever goes above 55C. Performance is still plenty good for my needs.

What do you mean by ripped it out?

If reapplied thermal paste?
