Lenovo ThinkPad T480


Lenovo's ThinkPad T480 is the very definition of a workhorse business laptop, with a killer keyboard and a nifty hot-swappable battery. (Just spend the extra bucks for the bigger power pack.)

Swoon-worthy keyboard. Strong performance. Hot-swappable battery. Attractive 1080p touch screen.

A little heavier than rivals. Standard battery lacks stamina.

Bottom Line: Lenovo's ThinkPad T480 is the very definition of a workhorse business laptop, with a killer keyboard and a nifty hot-swappable battery. (Just spend the extra bucks for the bigger power pack.)

The Lenovo ThinkPad T480 does a lot right and has no real flaws.The display that is very sensitive to pressure as well as the slowed-down but still mighty fast SSD are the main points of criticism that we have for the ThinkPad T480. As a matter of...
