Built for business, designed for success
One less thing to worry about
Thanks to the optional touch fingerprint reader and infrared camera, the ThinkPad L490 is designed with security in mind. It's also very configurable and will make your employees’ lives easier with its 12-hour battery life and seamless performance.
Makes light of heavy work
With up to 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processing (plus Intel® vPro™ technology for advanced security and manageability), the L490 can plow through almost any task. Yet, it has a starting weight of under 1.69kg. Options include solid-state drive storage, and 14"multitouch display.
Designed to go places
With up to 12 hours of battery, the L490 will last all day. When running low on juice, rapid-charging technology will give you 80% battery capacity in just 60 minutes. In addition, the optional backlit keyboard—with white LEDs—allows you to work in even low-light conditions.
One well-connected machine
The L490 comes with plenty of ports, including HDMI and USB-C, so it's a breeze to plug in other devices. Thanks to dual-band AC (2x2) WiFi and Bluetooth® 5.0, getting online is easy. With Near Field Communication (NFC) and optional LTE-A technology, it can hook up to NFC devices and stay connected remotely.
Log in easily & securely
Why type a password, when your fingerprint or smile will do? Thanks to the optional touch fingerprint reader and infrared camera, logging in is quick and secure—via advanced biometric technology and Windows Hello facial software. Plus, with ThinkShutter, you can close the webcam when it's not in use.
Technology you can count on
Like all ThinkPad laptops, the L490 is tested against 12 military-grade requirements and more than 200 quality checks to ensure it runs in extreme conditions. From desert dust storms to the Arctic wilderness, from spills and drops to zero gravity, you can rely on the L490 to handle anything that comes your way.
