The laptop for workdays, work nights, & weekends
Dazzle yourself & others
Choose the FHD touchscreen for an even more productive workday. No matter which display you choose, the ThinkPad T490s is framed by a new narrow bezel design that results in a larger display area.
Acts on your command
With Cortana Premium, you can speak commands to your T490s from across the room. The integrated far-field microphones ensure your voice carries its weight. Wake your device with a simple phrase. Quickly and easily find files and calendar events. Even put your system into standby mode to improve battery performance. Speak your mind and boost your productivity at the same time.
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.
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.
