Designed for serious business
Raise the bar with the ThinkPad T480. Boasting the latest power-packed processors and an all-day battery, this 14" laptop is robust yet light enough to accompany you anywhere. Practical touches include a backlit keyboard and an array of ports, while the enhanced security features help safeguard your work wherever the job takes you.
An IT manager’s dream
The ThinkPad T480 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. It 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 T480, 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
Delivering higher performance and far faster than its predecessor, the new 8th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor is designed to take your productivity to new heights. Backed by the increased efficiency and speed of DDR4 memory (up to 32 GB), the T480 gives you the power of a desktop PC and the freedom of a portable laptop.
Where form meets function
Inspired by our ThinkPad customers, this latest T-Series business machine has a USB-C docking connector on the side rather than underneath, enabling the T480 to be just 19.95 mm / 0.79 inch thin. It also has a range of convenient ports, including the lightning-quick Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3. In addition, should you need to work on the go or in low-light conditions, the renowned ThinkPad ergonomic keyboard has a convenient backlight.
