The black 14" ThinkPad T490 Laptop from Lenovo is designed with the performance, security, and portability that business users need. To keep up with your day-to-day tasks, it features a 50Wh battery and comes with a 65W USB Type-C adapter for rapid charging. Specs-wise, it's powered by a 1.8 GHz Intel Core i7-8565U quad-core processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe solid-state drive. Should you need more space, you can install an additional drive as well as attach external storage solutions using its multiple USB ports, which include two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port, and one Thunderbolt 3 port over USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C.

Its 14" Low Power IPS display, driven by an integrated Intel UHD Graphics 620 chipset, features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution for crisp and clear playback. It also supports HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort over USB Type-C/Thunderbolt 3, so you can mirror or extend your display for enhanced viewing and multitasking. Other integrated features include a microSD card reader, Micro-SIM slot, Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 5.0, an IR and 720p webcam, dual far-field microphones, speakers, a fingerprint reader, and an audio in/out jack. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Pro.

Tested for Battle, Built for Life

The T490 is tested against 12 military-grade requirements and more than 200 quality checks to ensure it runs in extreme conditions. From the Arctic wilderness to desert dust storms, from zero gravity to spills and drops, you can trust this laptop to handle whatever life throws your way.

Go from 0 to 80 in 60

The ThinkPad T490 delivers up to 16.1 hours of battery life with the low-power FHD display (based on testing with MobileMark 2014). If you're running on empty, Rapid Charge provides an 80% charge in just an hour. So, a 60-minute lunch break or layover is enough to boost your battery up to 12 hours. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors.

Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.

What Happens on Your PC, Stays on Your PC

ThinkShutter, a physical cover that ensures your camera is on only when you want it to be. You can also enjoy an infrared camera and a 720p webcam along with the ThinkPad's touch fingerprint reader for biometric login.

Windows 10 Pro

Start Menu

After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.

Cortana

Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana, can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the Internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information-gathering skills.

Microsoft Edge

After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.

Windows Store

For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.

Windows Continuum

Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.

Xbox on Windows 10

Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

Windows 10 Pro

The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for business users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.
