Lenovo ThinkPad T480s review

 

Robust build quality ; Decent battery life ; Excellent connectivity ; Good touchpad and keyboard

Subpar display ; Thicker and heavier than alternatives ; Expensive

The ThinkPad T480s doesn’t make as much sense as its predecessors. It’s not as thin and light as the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, and its performance likely isn’t any better when comparing the same processor configurations. While its build is robust, and the...

Lenovo ThinkPad T480s

 

The 14-inch Lenovo ThinkPad T480s is well-rounded workhorse laptop, but it can't escape the shadow of its superslim sibling, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon.

Durable carbon-fiber chassis. Stellar keyboard. Quiet operation. Useful selection of ports, including Thunderbolt.

Dim display. X1 Carbon is thinner, lighter, and only slightly pricier.

Bottom Line: The 14-inch Lenovo ThinkPad T480s is a well-rounded workhorse laptop, but it can't escape the shadow of its superslim X1 Carbon sibling.

Lenovo ThinkPad T480s (i7-8550U, MX150 Max-Q) Laptop Review

 

Even more versatile thanks to GeForce. We just recently tested the ThinkPad T480s, the latest model in a long series of high-quality 14 inch T series ThinkPads. Now we're testing the same model – this time with a stronger CPU and the GeForce MX150...

high-quality chassis ; excellent peripherals ; long battery life ; very good matte WQHD panel ; combination of modern and established ports ; WWAN ready ; 3 years warranty ; well performing hardware ; lightning fast PCIe-SSD ; many security features ;...

i7 slower than i5 under continuous load ; unrefined CPU performance management (fixed with BIOS 1.11) ; CPU throttling in battery mode ; high surface temperatures ; bad speakers ; ThinkShutter camera cover only included with bad HD webcam

The T480s is a very balanced and high-quality business notebook. The dedicated Nvidia GeForce MX150 (regardless of being a Max-Q version) does make it more versatile, by making it suitable for casual gamers. Though the execution is not quite perfect....

Lenovo ThinkPad T480s (i5, WQHD) Laptop Review

 

New revision. Lenovo equips the ThinkPad T480s with a new chassis and closes the gap towards its own ThinkPad X1 Carbon. Intel's latest quad-core processors are obviously included as well. We checked the SKU with the high-resolution WQHD IPS panel.

high quality chassis ; excellent input devices ; long battery runtime ; very good matte WQHD panel ; combination of modern and familiar ports ; WWAN-ready ; 3-year warranty ; good performance utilization ; fast PCIe-SSD ; many security features

high surface temperatures ; drivers not perfectly optimized yet ; bad speakers ; ThinkShutter camera cover only with the bad HD webcam

The ThinkPad T480s is a very interesting device and probably the most complete 14-inch business laptop from Lenovo right now. The previous model still suffered from some drawbacks, and most of them have been fixed for the 2018 edition.Back to old...
