    Dazzle yourself & others

    Combine with optional discrete graphics, the ThinkPad T490 is perfect for working with multimedia. No matter which display you choose, the ThinkPad T490 features a new narrower bezel design for a sleeker design and more productive workday.

    Tested for battle, built for life

    Like all ThinkPads, the T490 undergoes some of the most stringent product testing in the industry, so you get the perfect blend of value and durability when you purchase one.

    Go from 0 to 80 in 60

    The ThinkPad T490 delivers up to 14 hours* of battery life with the low-power FHD display. If you're running on empty, Rapid Charge provides an 80% charge in just an hour. So, a 60 minute lunch break or a layover is enough to boost your battery up to 12 hours. What more could you need for life on-the-go?

    * Based on testing with MobileMark 2014 on the FHD display panel. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors. Note that Rapid Charge requires the 65W power adapter.

    Stay connected

    Whether you're out in the world or working at your desk, the ThinkPad T490 keeps you connected. The optional LTE-A card keeps you up and running worldwide*. Use the ThinkPad Ultra Dock (40AJ0135AU, sold separately), a USB-C side mechanical docking station that easily connects with two male Type-C ports that slide into and automatically level your device. Once docked, your ThinkPad stays securely in place and connects to all of your peripherals such as monitors, keyboards, and mice.

    * WWAN must be configured at time of purchase, as it's not upgradeable.

    What happens on your PC, stays on your PC

    ThinkShutter, a physical cover that ensures your camera is on only when you want it to be, is now available on all camera options. You can also add options like an infrared (IR) camera and touch fingerprint reader for biometric login.
