Starting at 1.26 kgs / 2.78 lbs., this 12.5-inch laptop is easy to carry, whether you're on the move between meetings or running across town. Travel worry-free with up to 10.2 hours of battery life and RapidCharge technology, that charges your system up to 80% in just 60 minutes.
You won't want to look away
AMD Radeon™ Vega graphics make visuals more lifelike, colors 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 PCs, the A285 is tested against 12 military-grade requirements and more than 200 quality checks to ensure it runs in extreme conditions. This business laptop is the perfect blend of value and durability, and ready for whatever comes your way.
Docking is a snap
The ThinkPad A285 integrates with the ThinkPad Pro Dock (sold separately), a capability that’s shared across most of the 2018 ThinkPad models. The new USB-C side mechanical dock easily connects and automatically levels your device. Once docked, your ThinkPad stays securely in place and sits at a slightly tilted, ergonomic keyboard angle for comfort.
