An IT admin's dream
The ThinkPad A285 features robust biometric security and data encryption, ensuring a high level of enterprise-grade protection. And with easy serviceability, you get ready access to internal hardware components for troubleshooting or upgrading. When it comes to IT, we’ve got you covered.
Protects data and privacy
The ThinkPad A285's discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) encrypts your data and passwords. Windows Hello uses biometric sensors to recognise you, for superior protection when you unlock your device with your face or fingerprint. And the HD camera includes ThinkShutter, a privacy cover that lets you decide when your camera can see.
Your portable companion
Starting at 1.27 kg, this 12.5-inch laptop is easy to carry, whether you're on the move between meetings or running across town. And with up to 10.55 hours of battery life and rapid-charging that takes a battery to 80-percent in 60 minutes, you won't have to worry about charging time.
You won't want to look away
AMD Radeon™ Vega graphics make visuals more lifelike, colours more vibrant, and lag time a thing of the past. Review project creative designs, edit photos, and enjoy the crisp, clear display quality that the ThinkPad A285 offers.
Tested for toughness
Like all ThinkPads, the ThinkPad A285 is tested against industry-standard quality checks to ensure reliability. Our ThinkPads undergo a range of testing like hinge life-cycle durability, fan testing to keep thermals in check, vibration and shock tests for everyday handling and transporting, and even keyboard testing to verify sturdiness and longevity of keys and components. You get the perfect blend of value and durability when you purchase one.
Docking is a snap
The ThinkPad A285 integrates with the ThinkPad Pro Dock (40AH0135AU; sold separately), a 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 plugs that slide into and automatically level your device. Once docked, your ThinkPad stays securely in place and sits at a slightly tilted ergonomic angle for comfort.Show MoreLess
