The perfect travel companion
Say goodbye to vulnerability
The ThinkPad E490s’ security features help your SMB take control. The fingerprint reader adds secure biometric authentication, while the discrete trusted platform module (TPM) encrypts data at the hardware level. Plus, the ThinkShutter privacy cover prevents being spied on through the webcam. We take care of security so you can take care of business.
Packed with power
The ThinkPad E490s features the latest Intel® Quad Core™ processors, fast memory, and responsive SSD storage—which means everything’s accelerated, from booting up to everyday computing and opening media-rich files.
When it comes to being on the go, at 1.66 kg / 3.66 lbs, the ThinkPad E490s is light enough to tuck under your arm while heading to your next client meeting. And at just 17.9 mm / .70” thin, it’s sure to look good too. Choose the metallic finish in either sleek Silver or classic Black to convey your personal style.
Built for business—tested for life
The ThinkPad E490s is tested against industry-standard quality checks to ensure reliability. Our ThinkPad E Series PCs undergo testing for 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. When you buy the ThinkPad E490s, you get the perfect blend of value and durability.
Go from 0 to 80 in 60 minutes
The ThinkPad E490s boosts your productivity with up to 11.5 hours of battery life.* What’s more, when you do need to plug in, Rapid Charge technology brings your laptop back up to 80% capacity in just an hour. So a 60-minute lunch break or a layover can easily charge your battery for more than a day’s work.* Based on testing with MobileMark 2014. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors. Rapid Charge functionality requires the 65W adapter.
