  • "The crown jewel of the 2018 ThinkPad line is the new ThinkPad X280."
    GottaBeMobile, 1/4/2018

  • Features


    An IT administrator's dream

    Quickly log in with ease — just the touch of your finger or the view of your face if you opt for the IR camera and use Windows® Hello. What’s more, the fingerprint reader thwarts biometric hacking with anti-spoofing technology — that means the fingerprint image is saved inside the chip, and as such, it’s not sent out for login authentication when you sign in.

    Your data is protected too, with the discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM), which encrypts your information.

    And if that’s not enough to make IT administrators love the new ThinkPad X280, then the FIDO authentication capabilities that ThinkPad is enabled with is sure to have them drooling. Fast Identity Online—or FIDO—enables hardened authentication that wraps your access info in three layers of security. FIDO authentication pertains to your online credentials, when you sign in to websites like Facebook or Google, or make payments via PayPal. This global solution creates better security for online services, reduces costs for organizations, and is simpler and safer for users.

    Portability perfected

    When we completely redesigned the all-new ThinkPad X280, we took portability seriously. Which means you’re getting the most compact 12.5” Ultrabook®.

    Primed for productivity

    Despite its aggressively streamlined design, the ThinkPad X280 packs even more punch than previous models. From cutting-edge 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors to fast PCIe SSD storage to its innovative security options, the ThinkPad X280 gives you the resources to drive your business forward.

    Takes a beating in stride 

    From spilled drinks to drops and knocks, modern laptops need to withstand life on the road. The ThinkPad X280 has you covered. It’s tested against 12 MIL-SPEC requirements and passes more than 200 durability tests. Whether it’s a day at the office, or a day on the move, the ThinkPad X280 has you covered.

    Go from 0 to 80 in 60 minutes

    The ThinkPad X280 delivers up to 15 hours* of battery life. And if you’re running low, the RapidCharge feature provides 80% capacity in just an hour. So a lunch break or a layover is a quick opportunity to bank more than 12 hours on your battery.

    Down with dongles

    Connecting on the road—or even in your own conference room—can be a hassle. That’s why we’ve packed the ThinkPad X280 with a robust number of ports —including Thunderbolt™, USB Type-C, HDMI, and more.

    Prepare to be thunderstruck

    The ThinkPad X280 includes Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3—the technology that brings lightning-fast Thunderbolt to USB-C with data transfer speeds up to 40 Gbps. Connect a cable from your USB-C port to a Thunderbolt 3-enabled device, and get four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other port type, while also supplying power.

    For your eyes only

    Data security is more important than ever. That’s why we designed the ThinkPad X280 with a range of security options. ThinkShutter means you don’t have to put a sticker on your laptop camera to ensure privacy; just close it up when you’re not using it. The match-on-chip touch fingerprint reader gives you secure login without the hassle of passwords. The optional IR Camera also brings the ease of facial login with Windows Hello.
