Keeps IT departments as happy as their users
Simple. Powerful. Compatible. The E480 is easy for IT to deploy, offering the simplicity of Windows 10 Pro, the hardware compatibility of multiple USB ports, and the energy efficiency of 8th Gen quad-core Intel® processors delivering faster performance.
Reliable. Repairable. Secure. The E480 makes IT maintenance easy, too. It's reliable—as shown by the series of rigorous tests it undergoes against shocks, drops, and other extremes—and secure, thanks to its optional Touch Type fingerprint reader and dTPM 2.0 chip. And IT can rest easy with the Lenovo Sealed Battery Warranty, offering three-year coverage for non-CRU batteries.
Additional details on these features are available below.
Scratch items off your to-do list
The E480 is ready to tackle your tasks, thanks to the latest Intel® Core™ processors, AMD Radeon™ discrete graphics, and more. With up to 2x2 AC WiFi and a full array of ports – including USB-C, USB 3.1, and HDMI – it will keep you connected to the internet and a variety of external devices.
Working anywhere just got easier
The thin and light E480 was built for the road warrior. The ergonomic keyboard was engineered for comfort and accuracy. Its backlighting lets you use it in low-light surroundings and complete tasks despite the late hours. And with up to 13 hours of battery life, you’ll get a lot of uninterrupted time without worrying about electrical outlets. Stay one step ahead, no matter where the job takes you.
Pin-stripe suit optional
The E480 impresses with its narrow bezel and thinner, sleek appearance. Its vivid display completes the look – one that is sure to impress clients and put a memorable face on your business.
Lasts long enough to have its own career
The E480 was built to last and tested for durability. It packs the renowned ThinkPad reliability and is backed by a one- or two-year base warranty, with up to three years total available (see the Services tab for information on Extensions).
Don't forget to smile
The E480 offers a superb video-conferencing experience, thanks to its dual-array microphone, HD webcam, 14” IPS FHD display, and stereo speakers with Dolby® Advanced Audio™. Revel in rich sound and visuals so clear, you’ll feel like you're in the same room.
Let your assistant do the heavy lifting
Start with Windows 10 Pro for your E480, which includes your own personal assistant, Cortana. You’ll never have to hunt for files or photos or meetings again! 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.
Laugh at would-be data thieves
We know how important your data is. That’s why the E480 features a discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) 2.0 chip, which works in conjunction with Windows 10 Pro Bitlocker. Together they encrypt all your data, as well as your passwords.
Go ahead – forget your password
With an optional Touch Type fingerprint reader, you'll never need to remember your password again! Simply touch the fingerprint scanner to access your E480, or use your face with Windows Hello facial recognition software and log in automatically.
