Light, thin, and built to perform anywhere, the ThinkPad T480s delivers what you need, when you need it. Powerful processing, superb graphics, and Dolby® Audio Premium™ take functional efficiency to new heights. In addition, the enhanced security features maintain maximum protection and peace of mind wherever you roam.
Raises performance levels—and eyebrows
Delivering higher performance and far faster than its predecessor, the new 8th generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor is designed to take your productivity to new heights. Backed by the increased efficiency and speed of DDR4 memory (up to 24 GB), the T480s gives you the power of a desktop PC and the freedom of a portable laptop.
Brilliant, eye-catching graphics
With its vast array of vivid colors and wide-angle views, the 14-inch 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.
No power? No sweat
Fully charged, the 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 over a lunch break or meeting, the battery can be easily boosted to provide over 12 hours of power—more than enough to see you through the rest of the day.
An IT manager’s dream
As standard, the ThinkPad T480s has a 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. This slim yet full-fledged 14″ laptop also has an integrated global LTE-A feature that keeps you connected around the world, WiFi or not.
Furthermore, to help save time setting up and deploying each 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.
