An IT manager’s dream
The ThinkPad T480s has an optional match-on-chip fingerprint reader, anti-spoofing technology that authenticates log-in credentials and helps safeguards your data, and ThinkShutter, a webcam cover that you can open and close. To help save you time and effort in setting up and deploying each ThinkPad T480s, there's Microsoft® AutoPilot. This cloud-based solution lets you preconfigure every laptop so that they are ready to use right out of the box.
Raises performance levels—and eyebrows
With the new 8th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, the ThinkPad T480s can take you to new heights of productivity. Backed by the increased efficiency and speed of DDR4 memory (up to 16 GB), the ThinkPad T480s gives you the power of a desktop PC--with the freedom of a portable laptop.
No power? No sweat
Fully charged, the ThinkPad T480s gives you up to 15.6 hours* of battery life. When running low, the laptop's rapid charging feature delivers 80% capacity in just one hour. So a 60-minute lunch break or a layover can easily boost your battery up to 12 hours—more than enough to see you through the rest of the day.
Where form meets function
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 trap-door RJ45 Ethernet connector. In addition, should you need to work in low-light conditions, the renowned ThinkPad keyboard has a backlit option. These new design changes were based on ThinkPad customer feedback.
Get closer to the action
By configuring your ThinkPad T480s with an optional touchscreen, you can interact more intuitively and easily with your work—and have more fun during your downtime.
Practical yet secure
The standard HD webcam camera comes with ThinkShutter, a physical cover that you can slide open when you want to use the camera and close when you're finished. You can also add an optional IR (infrared) camera and optional touch fingerprint reader, and use Windows Hello to save time.
* ThinkShutter is not available on configurations with the IR Camera.
Tested for battle, built for success—anywhere
Every ThinkPad laptop undergoes 21 MIL-SPEC tests for reliability and durability, including the ability to survive in hazardous physical and environmental conditions.
With its vast array of vivid colors and wide-angle views, the 14-in display brings all your visuals, entertainment, and other multimedia to life. To enhance your viewing experience even further, choose the WQHD screen and discrete graphics option. Together, they add a superior sharpness and performance boost so your work can truly shine.
You won’t believe your ears
Dolby Audio™ Premium elevates your audio and entertainment experience. Turn up the volume and everything will still be crystal clear. You can also enjoy virtual surround sound and an enhanced bass response for high-quality, crisp sound every time.
Stronger online security, made easy
Signing into websites or making online payments usually involves trying to remember all kinds of passwords. Not so with the FIDO—Fast Identity Online—authentication capabilities that are built into the latest generation of ThinkPad laptops. By wrapping your user info and credentials into three secure layers, FIDO makes it safer and easier when you are online. This global solution also creates better security of web-based services and reduces cost for organizations. A win-win for everyone.
One less thing to worry about
For extra peace of mind, each ThinkPad T480s comes with a standard one-year worldwide warranty. This enables you to seek expert assistance and help in 160 countries across the globe.
