Designed for mobile power
Light, thin, and built to perform anywhere, the ThinkPad T480s delivers what you need, when you need it. Powerful processing, superb graphics, and Dolby Audio Premium take functional efficiency to new heights. In addition, the enhanced security features maintain maximum protection and peace of mind wherever you roam.
An IT manager’s dream
The ThinkPad T480s has an optional match-on-chip fingerprint reader, anti-spoofing technology that authenticates log-in credentials and helps safeguards your data, and ThinkShutter, standard with a 720p webcam, a webcam cover that you can open and close. This slim yet full-fledged 14" laptop also can be configured with an integrated global LTE-A feature (coming soon) that keeps you connected around the world, WiFi or not.
Furthermore, to help save time setting up and deploying each T480s, there's Microsoft AutoPilot. This cloud-based solution lets you preconfigure every laptop so that they are ready to use right out of the box.
Raises performance levels and eyebrows
Delivering higher performance and far faster than its predecessor, the new 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor is designed to take your productivity to new heights. Backed by the increased efficiency and speed of DDR4 memory (up to 24 GB), the T480s gives you the power of a desktop PC and the freedom of a portable laptop.
No power? No sweat
Fully charged, the T480s gives you up to 15.6 hours of battery life. When running low, the laptop's rapid charging feature delivers 80% capacity in just one hour (requires 65W AC Adapter). So over a lunch break or meeting, the battery can be easily boosted to provide over 12 hours of power, more than enough to see you through the rest of the day.
Where form meets function
Inspired by ThinkPad customers, this latest T-Series ThinkPad has a USB-C docking connector on the side rather than underneath, enabling the T480s to be just 18.45 mm thin and weigh starting at only 1.31 kg. It also has a range of convenient ports, including the lightning-quick Intel Thunderbolt 3. In addition, should you need to work on the go or in low-light conditions, the renowned ThinkPad ergonomic keyboard has a convenient backlight (optional)
Get closer to the action
By configuring your T480s with an optional touchscreen, you can interact more intuitively and easily with your work and have more fun during your downtime.
Practical yet secure
Thanks to Windows Hello, an optional touch fingerprint reader, and optional IR (infrared) camera, you can save time by logging in with just your finger or a smile. Alternatively, the standard webcam comes with ThinkShutter, a physical cover that you can slide open when you want to use the camera and then close it when you're finished
Tested for battle, built for success anywhere
Every ThinkPad laptop undergoes stringent testing for reliability and durability, including the ability to survive in hazardous physical and environmental conditions.
Brilliant, eye-catching graphics
With its vast array of vivid colours and wide-angle views, the 14-inch display brings all your visuals, entertainment, and other multimedia to life. To enhance your viewing experience even further, choose the discrete graphics option. Together, they add a superior sharpness and performance boost so your work can truly shine.
You won’t believe your ears
Dolby Audio Premium and the T480s combine to elevate your audio and entertainment experience. Turn the volume right up and everything will still be crystal clear. You can also enjoy virtual surround sound and an enhanced bass response for high-quality, crisp sound every time.
Stronger online security made easy
Signing into websites or making online payments usually involves trying to remember all kinds of passwords. Not so with the FIDO—Fast Identity Online—authentication capabilities that are built into the latest generation of ThinkPad laptops. By wrapping your user info and credentials into three secure layers, FIDO makes it safer and easier when you are online. This global solution also creates better security of web-based services and reduces a cost for organisations. A win-win for everyone.
One less thing to worry about
For extra peace of mind, the T480s comes with a worldwide warranty as standard. This enables you to seek expert assistance and help in 160 countries across the globe.
