Dazzle yourself & others
Choose the low-power FHD display option for ultimate battery life on your ThinkPad T490s, or go with the FHD touchscreen for an even more productive workday. For refined details, increased brightness, and amazingly accurate colors, dramatic Dolby Vision® high dynamic range (HDR) technology is available on the WQHD panel option. No matter which display you choose, the ThinkPad T490s is framed by a new narrower bezel design for a sleeker design and more productive workday.
Acts on your command
With Cortana Premium, you can speak commands to your ThinkPad T490s from across the room. The integrated far-field microphones ensure your voice carries its weight. Quickly and easily find files on your PC. Or call up your calendar to determine your schedule for the day or week. Speak your mind and boost your productivity at the same time.
Tested for battle, built for life
Like all ThinkPad laptops, the ThinkPad T490s 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 T490s delivers up to 20 hours* of battery life with the low-power FHD display. If you’re running on empty, Rapid Charge provides an 80% charge in just an hour. So, a 60 minute lunch break or a layover is enough to boost your battery up to 16 hours. What more could you need for life on-the-go?
*Based on testing with MobileMark 2014 on the low-power FHD display panel. Battery life varies significantly with settings, usage, and other factors. Note that Rapid Charge requires the 65W power adapter.
What happens on your PC stays on your PC
Unless you decide to share it. The ThinkPad T490s offers an FHD panel with PrivacyGuard — an exclusive technology that keeps unwanted viewers from seeing what’s on your screen. ThinkShutter, a physical cover that ensures your camera is on only when you want it to be, is now available on all camera options. You can also add options like an infrared (IR) camera and touch fingerprint reader for biometric login.
Whether you’re out in the world or working at your desk, the ThinkPad T490s keeps you connected. The optional LTE-A card keeps you up and running worldwide*. While the ThinkPad Pro Dock (sold separately), a USB-C side mechanical docking station easily connects with two male Type-C ports that snap into and automatically level your device. Once docked, your ThinkPad stays securely in place and connects to all of your peripherals such as monitors, keyboards, and mice.
*WWAN must be configured at time of purchase, as it’s not upgradeable.
