THE MOST MOBILE WORKSTATION EVER.
This portable 39.6cm (15.6) workstation is the thinnest and lightest in its class, yet sacrifices nothing in terms of speed, power, and durability. Graphics-intensive, ISV-certified applications with blazing-fast processing and advanced graphics technology, plus ThinkPad's known reliability, mean you can handle any heavy-computational task from anywhere you want to be.
THE MOST MOBILE WORKSTATION EVER.
4th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors
4th generation Intel® Core™ processors deliver the performance to increase productivity for your business. Devices turn on in an instant and are always up-to-date. You can multitask quickly, move effortlessly between applications, and collaborate wirelessly in a high quality videoconference — all with the convenience of longer battery life. Plus, you can guard against identity theft and ensure safe access to your network with built-in security features. In fact, the only thing more amazing than an Intel Core processor-based PC is what your users will do with it.
Thunderbolt is a revolutionary connection technology that simultaneously supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices through a single, compact port. Simply connect the W540 to multiple displays and devices with one cable, then sync and backup at up to 10Gbps (twice the speed of USB 3.0), capture and edit multiple uncompressed video streams in real time, and daisy-chain your devices to simplify your workflow.
Optional X-Rite® Integrated Color Calibrator
X-Rite PANTONE® color calibration yields greater image accuracy, more precise color matching, and a consistently true display. Each individual sensor is uniquely calibrated to each individual display at the factory.
Because photographers, light CAD/CAM users, digital content creators, and other industry pros require proven performance and software stability, more than 100 applications are tested and certified by industry-leading independent software vendors.
Award-Winning Keyboard Further Enhanced for Windows 8
Full-sized and spill-resistant, the legendary ThinkPad ergonomic keyboard is renowned for its full array of keys, excellent feel, and TrackPoint® pointing device. And now it's optimized for Windows 8 with convenient multimedia buttons, function-lock capability, and immediate access to view apps. Plus, a larger, smooth TrackPad with 5-point click integration can be configured multiple ways through Settings. Plus, the L540 also includes a numeric keypad.
Optional NFC Technology
Near Field Communication (NFC) provides an easy, secure way to share data, link devices, pair with networks, and other tasks by lightly tapping two devices together.
NVIDIA® Optimus™ Technology
Automatically switch to your discrete graphics card only when it's needed. Get extended battery life without sacrificing high-performance graphics for applications, high-def videos, 3D views, and more.
FHD/3K Display With IPS Technology
