Ready for business, ready for anything
Keeps IT departments as happy as their users
Your IT staff will rest easy with the optional touch fingerprint reader, knowing they give the L480 greater security. And it’s been fully redesigned for productivity, meaning IT won’t have to listen to complaints about a slow laptop. And its mobility is enhanced by its global LTE-A WWAN (option available later), offering more connectivity in remote places. The L480 will make your employees’ jobs easier, a favour they will return to your IT department. Additional details on these features are available below.
Works hard, to make your work easy
The L480 will take on your full workload, thanks to the latest Intel® Core™ processors (with optional Intel® vPro™ technology for advanced security and manageability), a choice of the fast file access of SSD storage or the high capacity of HDD storage, and great memory capacity. Its 2x2 AC WiFi, LTE-A (option available later), and full array of ports will keep you connected to the internet and a variety of external devices. Get ready to have a much shorter to-do list.
Stay one step ahead, no matter where you go
The L480 was built for the road warrior. At 13% lighter and 8% thinner than the previous generation, it will go anywhere with ease. The antiglare IPS FHD display is also easy on the eyes. With up to 12 hours of life in its battery, you’ll get a lot of uninterrupted time without worrying about electrical outlets. And when you come back, the new USB-C mechanical side docking makes it easy to reconnect at your desk.
More connectivity, more productivity
Whether you need to get online or use a peripheral device, the L480 can connect you. Extensive I/O ports such as USB Type-C, USB 3.0, and HDMI make it easy to plug in most peripheral devices. Dual Band AC (2x2) and Bluetooth® 4.2 make wireless online connectivity a snap, but even if you’re not near a router, integrated global mobile broadband LTE-A (option available later) will keep you connected.
Forget your password – and your worries
With the option of an integrated touch fingerprint reader, you'll never need to remember your password again! Simply touch the fingerprint scanner to access your L480, to log in automatically. 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. Lastly, Fast Identity Online (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, Visa, etc. This global solution creates better security for online services, reduces costs for organisations, and is simpler and safer for users.
Let your assistant do the heavy lifting
Start with Windows 10 Pro for your L480, which includes your own personal assistant, Cortana. With an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor, you'll get powerful performance and speed. Plus, you’ll never have to hunt for files or photos or meetings again – let Cortana do the work for you! Integrate Cortana with your calendar and you can even search by when and with whom you worked on a file, rather than having to remember file names.
Lasts long enough to have its own career
The L480 was built to last and tested for durability. It packs the renowned ThinkPad reliability and is backed by a one-year base warranty, with up to three years total available.Show MoreLess
