Designed for serious business
Raises performance levels—and eyebrows
Far faster than its predecessor, the new 8th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor delivers higher performance and is designed to take your productivity to new heights. Backed by the increased speed of DDR4 memory, the ThinkPad T480 gives you the power of a desktop PC and the freedom of a portable laptop.
Where form meets function
Based on ThinkPad customer feedback we understand that mechanical docking is important to many of our customers. The latest T-Series business laptop offers the same mechanical docking experience you prefer with a new USB-C side docking connector. It also has a range of convenient ports, including the lightning-quick Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3 port and full-sized RJ45 Ethernet connector. In addition, should you need to work in low-light conditions, the renowned ThinkPad keyboard has a backlit option.
Power up without powering down
The ThinkPad T480 comes standard with built-in Power Bridge technology. This innovation is the answer to 'low battery' warnings, especially if you are on the road or without a nearby power outlet. It allows you to swap out a battery and replace it with a fully charged one—without having to turn your machine off. You can also choose a 6-cell 72 Whr battery for up to 30.3 hours* between charges.
Get closer to the action
Configure your ThinkPad T480 with an optional touchscreen so you can interact more intuitively and easily with your work—and have more fun during your downtime.
Practical yet secure
Thanks to Windows Hello, an optional touch fingerprint reader, and optional IR (infrared) camera, you can save time by logging in with just your finger or a smile. Alternatively, the standard webcam camera comes with ThinkShutter, a physical cover that you can slide open when you want to use the camera and close it when you're finished.
* ThinkShutter is not available on configurations with the IR Camera.
Tested for battle, built for success
Every ThinkPad laptop undergoes stringent testing for reliability and durability, including surviving in hazardous physical and environmental conditions.
Two less things to worry about
For extra peace of mind, each ThinkPad T480 comes with a standard one-year worldwide warranty. This enables you to seek expert assistance and help in 160 countries across the globe.
