Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Device - ThinkPad T480sI was amazed with the device the moment I opened it. The hardware is well crafted and gives great feeling of using it. The performance is second to none. I took seconds to boot to Windows. Applications performance is great on my new ThinkPad. The battery stays long. Most importantly, it fit for business use perfectly. I love my new laptop - Thank you Lenovo for this art piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool for the business world.Great tool. This is my 3rd ThinkPad. Simple love the simplicity and functionality. Plus if something starts going out guess what I can buy replacement parts and keep it kicking for a few more years. If you have a medium to large company and you dont use these ... I feel your employees' pain. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great laptop so far! Just 2 minor issues.I love it so far. It’s a very solid workstation. Two complaints, however, is that it arrived with minor, barely noticeable smudges on the lid (top cover of the laptop). In addition, the screen seems to have a brighter part on the top left that’s noticeable when the whole screen is black (black wallpaper for example or when it’s booting up with the Lenovo logo) which bothers me sometimes. It might just be some dust behind the LCD panel from the factory I’m not really sure. I hope they do a better job on taking care of parts when building the laptop next time. Other than that, GREAT laptop overall!!! Would definitely buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arrival with problems. Not efficient repairing.The new thinkpad arrival with a problem, which is very disappointing. When plug in earbuds or headset, the left channel has no sound. I sent it back for return. Though promised to be repaired and sent back in 6 days, after nearly one month, the computer is still on hold in the repair center. This is very annoying ! One month after purchase, I haven't used it for more than 3 days. It really delays my work, and has bad influence on my job. I'll tell all my friends to never believe in the quality and service of Thinkpad ! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific laptop, watch the keyboard backlit optionReplaced a T440s and the new T480s is very nice. Much faster and noticeably lighter. The first time I ordered it, I missed the option for backlit keyboard because the section to order that feature showed a pulldown menu with the first option labeled "English". The backlit keyboard in my opinion has a better feel (the keys are smooth).I just thought that the other options were other languages. I had to re-order with the backlit keyboard selected and return the other. Also love the Windows 10 Hello login with camera (be sure to order the 3d camera).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built and fast with excellent battery lifeI just bought my new Lenovo T480s 14” Notebook computer. I found that the computer is very nicely built (looks and feels high quality) and was extremely easy to set up. While loading some programs, it was very apparent how fast this machine is. My configuration is 16GB of Ram and 512GB SSD hard drive. While I use computers in my business, I am by no means a technology expert. The set up has been flawless and I experienced no problems whatsoever. So far, I really love this notebook as it has met or exceeded my expectations. I love the fact that this notebook has an extensive array of ports—USB, Video, Ethernet, etc. Therefore, I am very happy with this purchase and I would highly recommend this notebook computer for anyone looking for a high end, high performance notebook which is built well and easy to set up. And did I mention excellent battery life?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ThinkPad T480s reviewGreat PC, of course this is replacing a dell that I bought new when Windows 7 was state of the art :-). Any ways, great system like the touch screen and the fast response. Like the little red dot in the center for moving around, makes the mouse I got not so important, but still useful. If I buy another system I will defiantly look at Lenovo again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keyboard is bananas.Pros: touchscreen, keyboard, durability, having ports you'll actually need/use.Cons: Battery lasted 7 hours from 100% to cutting itself off. From stand by/hibernate, audio will start playing once you hit power button but before actually signing in. May not be isolated to this model but a larger Windows 10 problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blend of features and optionsThis is the perfect model of laptop for me. It has the battery life, portability, and build quality to be considered an “ultrabook.” Yet it is beefed up just enough to check every other box I had. It has enough cooling capacity that it doesn’t throttle and the fans are never annoying. It has as many replaceable parts as can be practical on a laptop. It has multiple USB C and USB A ports, full size hdmi and a recessed full size SD card reader. It’s very configurable with options that for the most part aren't overpriced. I couldn’t find another laptop quite like it. And so far, it’s worked perfectly for me. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent All-Around LaptopLightweight, great battery life, and no chassis hot spots make this a laptop that I'm actually comfortable using in my lap. The keyboard's up to the expected ThinkPad standards, the touchpad seems more reliable than the version I had on my previous PC (a T440s), and the screen has excellent resolution (though I haven't given its Windows 10 "touch" features any use beyond a few experiments). I miss the older style docking station (and of course Windows 7's XP compatibility mode), but overall this is an excellent PC and I'm very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, crisp and portableI am extremely happy with my T480: it starts up in under 3 sec, very responsive. The fan does work hard during antivirus scan or other intense operations while connected to AC power, but it operates cool while on battery. The battery is good too. It charged from 30% to 100% in about 2 hours. I was working on my photos in Adobe Light Room, while listening to Internet radio and watching YouTube videos on battery for more than 4 hours, and the battery went down to 62%. The form factor is very important as well. Now I do not even have any doubt, if I should take my laptop with me, while on a go, to use when I have some free time: it is small and lightweight. So, if you combine that with almost instantaneous power up/down operation and incredible battery life - it goes, where I go :-) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dim ScreenBought the T480s (i7, 16MB) in September and been using it for about a week. This is an update from my old T460s (i7, 8MB) which I had it for 2-3 years. It's a good laptop and happy with it except the screen: It's too dim. I wished it could get a bit brighter, especially for day time use next to a window. My older T460s was brighter than T480s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meet and somehow exceed my expectationI have owned Thinkpad R52, T410, and X201 over my student era, and I am a die-hard thinkpad fan. I know T480s is not the top of the line right now, but I have passed the period of chasing the best.i5, 8G, 256 SSD is my minimum requirement, and this one meets my budget. My work does not rely on high performance laptop, and I am only using it for light home office and personal entertainment. The touch screen is a bonus.The battery life is surprisingly good, I can put it unplugged all day. Of course, I am comparing this to my old X201 and my wife's 5 years old Macbook Air. I am still trying to get use to the chocolate keyboard. And I like it can connect my mouse with bluetooth thus saving me an extra USB port. And HDMI and thunderbolt 3, nicely done, Lenovo! That's why I don't like MacBooks. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five-Stars So FarI needed a solid, consistent laptop for general university courses; nothing gimmicky, just quality performance. So far, that's precisely what the T-480s has given me. I've only had it for two weeks, but if it continues to perform as it has for these two weeks, I imagine I won't have to buy another laptop for the rest of my college career - and quite possibly beyond. I think I'm going to make some of my fellow students on campus wish they had purchased one these bad boys instead of... you know.I'm not the most tech savvy of customers, so I can't rattle off benchmark stats and arcane programmer jargon, I can just tell you that I'm pleased so far. I'll update this review if I find something amiss, but I doubt that I will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lenovo T480s - a great companionI bought this almost 20 days back and have to say that this is the best laptop I ever bought. The biggest problem with the smaller sized laptops are overheating but this one is very different. I work for normally 13 - 14 hours per day and the battery is also great.. even with moderate usage with heavy programmimng and online video and learning the battery lasts for 7 - 8 hours and with normal web surfing it runs for 13 hours....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Thinkpad yetI've been using Thinkpads for 20+ years, and the trend continues with my T480s.I did a custom build and sprung for the quad HD display, well worth it. Solves the historical weak point of Thinkpads, the dim, low nit display. The quad HD display is amazing, Macbook-grade and easy on the eyes.Form factor is light and slick, keyboard is comfortable, backlit keyboard (optional) is fantastic and the overall performance/speed is fantastic. Loving every minute of it! I chose the T480s over a Macbook or Surface Pro 2, I feel like a well-spec'd T480s is finally comparable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hardware great, software less soI bought the ThinkPad just prior to attending a out-of-town conference. That was my first mistake. At the airport, the screen froze and I could do nothing to unfreeze it. I did call support services upon arrival at my hotel, and provided advice for an easy fix. Logging on was frustrating so I abandoned it for the remaining part of the trip. My diappointment is software related. I didn't realize would have such a controlling role in its functioning. The computer itself feels good - nice touch of the keys, and I'm looking forward to using the back lit feature (one I figure out how to turn it on).

I really like that it still has two old-fashioned USB slots (for USB sticks or older printers), a lot of new light laptops don't have those anymore. My only minor gripe is that the sound is a bit muffled, I'm not sure if it's the speakers themselves or their location, but it's not crisp and not loud even at the highest setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good laptop for learning GPU programming.I took i5 8350U +16 GB+ 512 GB+ MX150 GPU version. This is the only thin 14 inch ThinkPad with Ethernet port and a discrete GPU. This is a small GPU but is certainly helpful for basic GPGPU programming. I can see the clear difference in video quality with hardware acceleration. Overall I am happy with this laptop. Please note that X1 carbon seems to have even better SSD and screen options than this model. So far, in my normal usage, the battery is certainly not 15 hr but surely 6-7 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design and wonderful specsI tried both the T480 and the T480s. The T480s is much thinner and lighter. It's got narrower edges around the display which makes it look even nicer. The T480s without a exchangeable battery module eliminates an external movable component, for me it's a plus.

If you are trying to connect two external monitors, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I understand the appeal of USB-C (docking is much nicer), but I think it was a huge mistake not to also include a mini-DP port. I have never had problems with either HDMI or DP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Half the weight twice the satisfactionI love everything about my new T480s. I had been using a Dell Precision for about 6 years and wanted a higher performance, lighter in weight laptop. The T480s is about one half the weight of my Dell laptop and has a battery that lasts twice as long (typically about 10 hours on a charge). The antiglare FHD screen is beautiful. Prior to my retirement we used Lenovo laptops at work and I have always loved the quality of the keyboard. I have been raving about my Lenovo so much that my wife recently decided to upgrade her Dell Inspiron 15.6 inch laptop to a Lenovo P51s laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and lightElegant, light, material feels nice and luxurious.Battery life is very satisfactory.The only problem I have encountered so far, after using it for 2 weeks, is the fan noise. It is rather loud *sometimes* and tends to flip on and off every couple of seconds. This doesn't happen when using the battery and I suspect it has something to do with 4-core performance that warms up the LT.Still, I'd expect the fan to kick in for a minute or two instead of 'flipping' every 5 seconds and overall be a bit quieter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so goodThe first one I got had some hiccups but Lenovo was quick to replace it and now everything is running smoothly. I only had the T480s for a few weeks but it's been great so far. Keyboard is good, chassis is light, everything works as it should. I think performance on this one beats a lot of more expensive rigs. The Mx150 dGPU however was probably a waste of money. Given that right now it's the same price as the X1 it is a bit of a question which one to get. I had an X-line Thinkpad before and it had serious overheating issues so I picked this one for the better thermals. The X1 will have better peripherals (screen and track-pad for sure, maybe better keyboard too but the T480s is plenty good) so it depends on your preferences. I wish the T480s had a glass track-pad and a higher quality FHD screen than it would be a no-brainer.Word of advice: unless you need 1080p to match the resolution of other screens you work with (like I do) go with the WHQD screen, the FHD is kinda meh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back to a ThinkpadI used an IBM Thinkpad for years then bought a MacBook Air with 8Gb of memory and 500 Gb SSD when it came out. I liked the smaller, compact design, speed and keyboard. However to use Quicken and Quickbooks, which I did daily in my work for nonprofits, and other Windows only programs I installed a virtual Windows desktop, Parallels. I did miss the more robust versions of the Windows Office programs. I used dual 27” Dell monitors but the j5create 350 USB 3.0 that allowed me to use the second monitor did not give a true extended desktop. As Apple updated its operating system—I used the latest developer editions—more often than not I’d find some quirk that slowed down my work. I was not doing heavy photo or video work and did not explore the Mac Media software. I installed Bootcamp but did not like having to restart the Air whenever I wanted to use an Apple program which was mainly to access iCloud. In January of this year, 2019, I decided to switch back to a Thinkpad. I chose the T 480s with 1Tb SSD, 16Gb ram, and HD touch screen because it is a no-nonsense business laptop with the advantages of state-of-the-art design and electronics, terrific keyboard and screen, multiple ports and a form factor that is both handsome and efficient. I’ve now used it for several months and could not be more pleased. I added the dock with Type-C connector and love the convenience and the HDMI/3.0 dual monitor connection for a true extended desktop. My monitors do not have Display ports so I cannot daisy-chain them which the dock would allow.I am again a Thinkpad owner and am very happy to be one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Met ExpectationsThis laptop is nearly perfect. Before getting this T480s, I had an X131e which I purchased for use in school and it served me well, I still use it as a network server. When you're buying a ThinkPad, you're buying a quality business laptop that is may be overkill for some, for those who know what they're buying, here are some of the reasons why I purchased this laptop. 1. Keyboard and TrackPoint - the keyboards on ThinkPads are known for their excellent key travel despite fitting in a small size, and I enjoy using the TrackPoint (on the X131e, the horrible trackpad forced me to use the TrackPoint, but on the T480s, where the trackpad is way better, the TrackPoint is still nice to use). 2. Connectivity - Unfortunately, this is something that is being lost with the new T490 series and most of the other laptops on the market. This is a main reason why I purchased a ThinkPad as well. Ethernet, Full-size SD card reader, and a couple of full-size USB ports. You need a dongle for Ethernet, even on the X1 Extreme. And the X1 Carbon only has a micro-SD card slot. 3. All this while still maintaining a small form factor. Shoutout to r/ThinkPad for help choosing this laptop over newer options. I did come into some trouble with this laptop when I first received it, it had a glaring stuck pixel in the center of the screen, but the service depot repaired and returned the laptop promptly, free of charge since it was a day-old laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OLD TO NEWI used a Toshiba Laptop for over 10 years in my law office. I never had updated my Outlook software in that period of time. Then for some unknown reason, the computer directed me to update and I accommodated its command; my Toshiba was hit with 47 updates. My poor little, elderly notebook ground to a screeching halt and so did its poor, old owner. Time to mirror what was left onto a new notebook. I shopped at a few tech stores which touted other brands, such as Dell and HP, but I held back not satisfied with the demos I used. Then, I hired an IT person who was thoroughly convinced that the Lenovo Think Pad was the best model to buy. Not only did he purchase one for me but he had also purchased Lenovo Notebooks for his clients and his family. This IT person was thoroughly enamored with Lenovo's speed, capabilities and durability. I followed his suggestion and purchased the Lenovo ThinkPad T480 (14") and I could not be happier. The ThinkPad starts as fast as an Apple and is more than capable of dealing with an old user, like me. I would recommend , in a heart beat, the Lenovo to my family, friends and associates.

Everything is great...EXCEPT...there was a huge problem that when it was plugged in and reached 100% the screen would keep dimming and go black, then come back on, dim, and go black. It would repeat this over and over until I unplugged from power. Obviously this does not work for me. Had to return. Waiting for it to arrive today. Hopefully it all works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mobile Platform for a Soccer CoachThis has been a fantastic mobile computing platform. It spends its days waiting in my backpack alongside my soccer cleats, ball, and cones waiting and ready to run our club and keep my teams organized. When I am not at my day job, I am spending my time at our soccer pitches as the club president, general manager, director of coaching, and academy coach. All the administration aspects of our club are run on a web based application and I needed a rugged computer with long battery life without the typical bulk and massive price tag that comes with most rugged computers. This laptop and I think all ThinkPads are milspec rated... It stands up to the demands I put on it. Rain, dust, bumps, and the hot Alabama summer days have been no match for this powerhouse. Along with that, it also has a long battery life and has lasted all day while running a 12 hour summer soccer camp. Windows Hello makes it possible to just pull it out of the bag and its ready almost as soon as I flip open the lid. The only thing I would have done different would have been to order it with 5g capability. This laptop last way longer than my iPhone XS Max that I am tethering to for internet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall - Solid computerThe computer feels solid, which is great. It's light and powerful. My only complaint is that the NVME-SSD inside is not a samsung. IT's a toshiba, which are still good but the WRITE speed will cap at about 1300MB/s. The Samsungs can hit 3500MB/s write. The quad core CPU is wonderful, the screen is the best I've ever seen and I really like my port options. I would give it a 5/5 if it weren't for the cheaper nvme ssd they pick for you. Still good, though. 1300MB/s is freaking great. (but not the best, nor close to it)

When it became time to retire my T430, I considered The Macbook, and Macbook Air as an alternative- but after research chose the T480s, and I'm very happy I did. The T480s did not disappoint- the great keyboard we have become accostomed to, still user serviceable for future RAM and HD upgrades, and the overall quality- but in a lighter, more compact package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for collegeI got this about a week ago, and it has been great. I haven't actually tried gaming or anything on it for fear that I might slow down the computer, but for my purposes of quick searches and tasks, it has been amazing. I went from Windows 7 to this, and the transition has been seamless as they are surprisingly similar in how it is laid out. I would recommend this to any college student debating between buying a $2500 Macbook Pro or some random Windows laptop. Being tech savvy is probably better if you're scared of viruses, but I got a 1 year subscription for McAfee Web Protection with this purchase, and so far it has worked well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thinkpad T480s good machine for Ubuntu 18.04Upgraded to T480s with i5 with 1920 display from T450s with i7, maxed out the RAM at 24GB, pulled the 256GB Windows SSD and added 1TB NVMe SSD and installed Ubuntu 18.04 and Linux kernel 4.20.13. No issues. 5-7 hours on single, non-replaceable battery, depending on usage. Keyboard and red mouse button are the good standard Lenovo Thinkpad items software people want. In retropect, 1TB now seems like overdoing it, since everything is cloud-based anyway. Could have just wiped Windows on the 256SSD that came standard. Decided on i5 rather than i7 after reading reviews (Tom's Hardware?) that pointed out better sustained performance with the i5 due to fan design. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The T480s is the Leader of the Pack for business.I looked at many computers and tried them at the stores. Lenovo T480s just kept coming back to the top of my list. The computer is SOLID and Rugged and durable. It is lightening fast. It has all the latest features that one would need in a business computer. I use mine on the go and travel internationally. I'm really tough on laptops. I've been using this one for 3 months now and am extremely impressed and satisfied. The SSD Drive is a treat to show off to others with a standard "moving parts" hard drive. I tell them to count as my computer boots up from full off and not sleep. It takes about 4-5 seconds. The battery life is much better than I expected and it recharges very fast in about an hour to almost full charge. The keyboard is so nice to type on. It is pretty much a full size keyboard and is backlit. The backlighting on the keyboard is important as I like to work later than my wife and I can easily see the keys in the dark as I type away. The keyboard is also quiet so it doesn't wake her up. I love the touchpad and ease and accuracy of movement. There are plenty of ports. I'd like one more USB but you get the new Thunderbolt port instead and it's simple and very inexpensive to get a USB port expander The computer is light in spite of it's ruggedness. The sound quality is great. I really don't watch movies and such so can't speak to the quality of the display as I am a business user. The display seems equal or better to anything I've had in the past. Even small things like the AC Adapter are well built and sturdy. I love the fingerprint sign in and it recognizes my fingerprint way faster than my last computer and I don't have to be very precise as to how I lay my finger on the sensor. I have had many computers and quite a few Lenovo computers over the years. I'm never disappointed and always impressed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice machine, but disappointedThis purchase is to replace my T430s. Biggest complaint is the touch pad, I miss the buttons at the bottom of the touch pad that make navigating easy. I've had to slow down the pad because it is so sensitive, but I'm still struggling with things like my screen enlarging or closing, opening and movement of windows I had no intention to move. The buttons are now built in to the bottom of the touchpad, but you have to be super specific where you hit in order to get the action you want. Super disappointing. Audio has a tin-ish sound. Machine doesn't have a lid latch, so when I put it in my backpack I have to be careful that it doesn't accidentally open. In general my previous model case seems more robust and able to handle the harsh conditions of going in and out of a backpack and the constant travel I do. I'm also disappointed in the keyboard back light, which I use a lot and paid for as an addition to this laptop. It seems as though the lighting comes from the top of the keyboard down and in general isn't as bright or effective to that of my T430s. They have also removed some of the quick buttons like mute and volume increase/decrease which made things quick and easy. I'm also disappointed at the lack of recovery media either with them machine or on a partitioned drive. Now I have to order it from Lenovo and in my case it only allows for a digital download, adding hours of effort to setting up my new machine. Also took a long time to get the machine. I customized it, but not with anything crazy that should justify a month plus to receive the shipment.Positives - beautiful, clear screen. Footprint of the machine and weight are fabulous. Machine seems fast, but I haven't fully transitioned to the new machine with the applications I use on a day to day basis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ThnkPad is still ThinkPadAlways used ThinkPad for business and personal use. This model is replacing a T500 of 2009 heavily modified - btw I think you should always provide assistance for old model without me going in aftermarket t replace motherboard. Solid and reliable, it provides all features that might be needed for business or personal use. It is getting a little pricey though compared to competitors

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eh?This Machine is great for your everyday office user; however, at this price point it is radically underpowered. The compensating factor is the overall hap-tics of the machine are great. Smooth mouse decent screen and solid feel. One thing I do not understand is the finish on this machine is super lame. It will scratch or scuff from the smallest amount of contact not to mention people who use lotion on their hands permanently leave hand prints opening up the screen because the finish absorbs the oils in the lotion like a sponge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Computer!I had a different brand slim/lightweight computer for 10 years, still have it and runs great to this day! At the time, you could only get a 128 GB hard drive and it had only an I3 Chip. It was finally running some things a little slow and decided it was time for an upgrade (Jan 2019), My membership club had this computer for its members. I wanted at least a 512GB hard drive with an I7 processor and this fit the need with all the ports I needed. The battery life does go a long way...I'm very impressed with the battery life!!!!!!!! Additionally, this computer is about the same weight and size as my older laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had several problemsI bought a Lenovo because of its reputation and to avoid having issues, but right away the keyboard stopped working and they are sending me a box to send it back to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Laptop, Great for ProgrammingI recently purchased this laptop and I have been very impressed with its overall quality. I thought I would write about five aspects of the laptop that were the most influential on my positive rating or just things that are good to know.1. Ergonomically speaking, this laptop is very well built. The top surface where you place your wrists is solid and does not have a flimsy plastic feeling, something I have experienced on older laptops.2. I did research before hand on the quality of the keyboards on Lenovo laptops and found that they seem to have a reputation for being high quality; this laptop definitely lives up to that reputation. As a programmer, I have found that the keyboard allows me to type very fast and accurately and is very comfortable.3. Again with the keyboard, some years ago I heard that Lenovo had changed the keyboard layout. Given how much fuss people made about missing the old keyboard design I was concerned that I might not like the new one. Fortunately, Lenovo has done a good job with the new design and I have found that I have adjusted to the it very quickly. Not only does it not hamper my ability to do programming, I now prefer it over the old one.4. The laptop also doesn't get too hot when watching videos. If I watch videos for an hour with the computer in my lap it starts getting warm, but not what I would consider hot or uncomfortable.5. Finally, an important feature for me was the location of the headphone jack and the USB ports. The headphones plug into the left side of the laptop, which allows me to use my external mouse without the headphone cable getting in the way.Overall I would give this laptop a very positive review. When I need a new laptop in the future I will probably get another ThinkPad. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A truly solid Thinkpad!I've been using this laptop for a few weeks now and I'm pretty pleased with it so far. I use it for business as well as for personal tasks (including 3D modeling) and streaming, I don't use it for gaming. Facial recognition works perfectly, which is great. The battery life is impressive - even when I'm using the laptop heavily and continuously, the battery will last all day and well into the evening. The keyboard has just the right resistance, but the screen, which is flat and dull, is a bit of a disappointment, especially when I have an X1 Yoga to compare it to! As far as performance, the laptop is very quick and responsive, even when I'm multi-tasking between multiple apps and endless browser tabs. It will sometimes lose its wifi connection, but, to be frank, I'm not entirely sure whether it's the laptop or my service provider that has the issue. I haven't had a chance to use the webcam, but I am sad that it doesn't have a cover like my W510 did. It would be nice be feel secure in my privacy. I have seen the camera light turn on when I wasn't using it and that was really disconcerting. Overall, though, I'm happy with this laptop and will often choose to use it instead of my X1 Yoga, which is only a few months old. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

It had no issues streaming 2 to 3 shows at the same time with no buffering or drops in graphic power. The only issues I found with the laptop is with the finger print scanner it rarely worked, I redid my finger print 10 different times and got it to actually log me in only once. The keyboard also has a few issues when typing long reports it actually missed keystrokes off and on. This is a great laptop for either personal or business use, I would recommend this laptop to anyone. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The screen display is crisp, the keyboard is precise, and the built in mousepad is more responsive than what I am used to. The facial recognition security feature is a must! Lenovo's lives up to their word concerning battery life--I am getting about 12 hours of use on one charge, although this is with the maximum battery life setting--no more worries about having to find power ports during continental air travel. Best computer purchase that I have done in a long time! I wish that I could perform as well as ThinkPad! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I like the Lenovo update software - super easy to use and nice not to have to download and update drivers manually.My only complaints are that it currently doesn’t work with my Lenovo Thunderbolt dock that is new within the last 4 months - seems like a firmware update should be able to fix it but I found it strange. It would also be great if there was a magnetic connector for the power cable - it always scares me that a small bump (or kids running through the power cord) would snap the connector.

I landed here again as this was the most I could find for the money. This computer is really fast. The sound is great. Image is great. (I wanted this to work as entertainment as well as work. It's for college after all.) This is very light.( My daughter wanted that.) But the frame and keyboard feels well built. I'm not worried about it's longevity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent laptop!I’m a university student, most of the time I use my laptop for coding and writing essays, with some casual gaming, I used to own an alienware 17, it was a big, heavy and power hungry laptop, it was difficult to carry around the campus. I travel a lot with my car, it was also so dificult to power the computer with a standard power inverter for my car, I have to use one that needs to be directly hooked up to the cars battery in order to deliver the full 400w that the computer need.I did a lot of research on the best laptops that would fit my needs (powerful enough for casual gaming, comfortable to type in, light, no to much plastic, beautiful, powerful to run vms without throttling).I came out with the x1 carbon, it was a great machine, but no option to upgrade ram, and no physical Ethernet port (a must for things I do). So I decide to go with the T480s, it is a great laptop, I’m in love with it, it’s so easy to carry it around, so comfortable, and powerful, build quality is excelent.I feel that this computer will last for years.Something in not so happy with this laptop is the screen, it’s not bad but not great, for the price I paid I was expecting to get something better, other flag is the finger print reader, it’s hard to get it to work sometimes, I end up just using my pin to unlock my computer, much easier than trying to make the reader recognize my finger [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
