Raises performance levels—and eyebrows

Delivering higher performance and far faster than its predecessor, the new 8th generation Intel® Core™ 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.

No power? No sweat

Fully charged, the T480s gives you **up to 13,5 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.

** CruiseTech note: quoted figure is from Lenovo,  estimated based on MobileMark 2014. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors. As result, we do not guarantee it will reach the manufacturer's max run time.

It also has a range of convenient ports, including the lightning-quick Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3. In addition, should you need to work for an extended time, the renowned ThinkPad ergonomic keyboard has a comfortable feel (this listed unit has non-backlit keypad).
