Raise the bar for business-class
An IT admin's dream
Lightweight yet durable, the ThinkPad A485 features robust biometric security and data encryption, ensuring a high level of enterprise-grade protection. Deployment benefits include flexible operating systems, including Crystal Preload, Ready-to-Provision, and custom, which let you create the ideal OS for your organization. And with easy serviceability, you get ready access to internal hardware components for troubleshooting or upgrading. There’s even a Diagnostic SmartBeep tool to help with remote troubleshooting and faster service. When it comes to IT, we’ve got you covered.
Thwart would-be hackers
We know how much you value your data—and your privacy. That’s why the ThinkPad A485 offers processor-level security features to keep your data safe. Windows Hello uses biometric sensors to recognize you, so when you unlock your device with your face or your fingerprint, you get superior enterprise-grade protection. And if you opt for the HD camera, it includes ThinkShutter, a privacy cover that puts you in control of when you want your camera on. Additionally, Discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) encrypts all of your data—including passwords.
A companion that keeps you engaged
Starting at 1.65kg., the A485 is lightweight and easy to carry, especially when you’re on the move between meetings or running across town. This 14” laptop slips as easily into a bag as it tucks under your arm. And with up to 10.7 hours of battery life*, electrical outlets become a thing of the past—or at least not a concern when you’re on the go. Likewise, the need for WiFi.
* Based on testing with MobileMark 2014. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors.
Built to go on and on. And on.
Like all ThinkPads, the A485 is tested against 12 military-grade requirements and more than 200 quality checks to ensure they run in extreme conditions. Our ThinkPads undergo some of the most stringent product testing in the industry, so you get the perfect blend of value and durability when you purchase a one. From the arctic wilderness to desert dust storms, from zero-gravity to spills and drops, you can trust this mobile workstation to handle whatever life throws your way.
Let your creativity flag fly
With the amazing new AMD Radeon™ Vega graphics, visuals are more lifelike, colors more vibrant. And whether you're creating content, gaming, or streaming, you can do it all without lag time. What's more, the optional IR camera includes Glance technology, which merges face-, eye-, and gaze-tracking. Enjoy a more intuitive and productive interaction by automatically focusing the cursor and shifting windows by just moving your eyes—especially great with multiple monitors.
Audio so amazing you’ll think it’s live
Speakers on the A485 deliver amazing audio with Dolby Audio™ Premium, which energizes your entertainment with rich, powerful sound. It dynamically adjusts audio to deliver home theater quality in a virtual surround sound experience for all your entertainment. Boosted bass and enhanced volume turn it all up for sound that’s loud and clear enough to share.
The ThinkPad A485 integrates with the ThinkPad Pro Dock, a whole new docking system that’s shared across most of the 2018 ThinkPad models. The new USB-C side mechanical dock 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 sits at a slightly tilted angle for comfort.Show MoreLess
