    Tested for battle, built for life

    Like all ThinkPads, the T490s undergo some of the most stringent product testing in the industry, so you get the perfect blend of value and durability when you purchase one.

    Go from 0 to 80 in 60

    The T490s delivers up to 16.8 hours of battery life*. And if you’re running low, Rapid Charge technology provides 80% capacity in just an hour. So a 60-minute lunch break or a layover can easily boost your battery up to almost 16 hours. What more could you need for life on the go?

    *Based on testing with MobileMark 2014 on the FHD display panel. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors. Note that Rapid Charge requires the 65W power adapter.

    What happens on your PC stays on your PC

    Unless you decide to share it. The T490s has ThinkShutter, a physical cover that ensures your camera is on only when you want it to be, and is now available on all camera options. You can also add an optional infrared (IR) camera.

    Stay Connected

    Whether you’re out in the world or working at your desk, the T490s keeps you connected. The optional LTE-A card keeps you up and running worldwide*. While the ThinkPad Ultra Dock (40AJ0135AU, sold separately), a USB-C side mechanical docking station easily connects with two male Type-C ports that snap into and automatically level your device. Once docked, your ThinkPad stays securely in place and connects to all of your peripherals.

    *WWAN must be configured at time of purchase, as it’s not upgradeable.
