ThinkPad E490 - Impressive features. Incredible value.
A sleek design and small footprint ensure the ThinkPad E490 laptop is the perfect choice for professionals on the go. This lightweight SMB device boasts powerful performance with the latest Intel CPUs, dual storage drive options, and optional AMD discrete graphics. Plus, robust security features keep your data safe.


Say goodbye to known vulnerability
ThinkPad E490s optional security features help your SMB take control. The fingerprint reader adds secure biometric authentication, while the discrete trusted platform module (TPM) encrypts data at the hardware level with data encryption tools (such as Microsoft BitLocker of Microsoft Windows 10 Pro). We take care of security so you can take care of business.

Packed with power
The ThinkPad E490 features the latest Intel Quad Core processors and its Intel Optane ready-which means that when you choose this memory option, everythings accelerated, from everyday computing to loading high-performance games.

Built for business-tested for life
The ThinkPad E490 is tested against industry-standard quality checks to ensure reliability. Our ThinkPad E Series PCs undergo a range of testing like hinge life-cycle durability, fan testing to keep thermals in check, vibration and non-repetitive shock tests for everyday handling and transporting, and even keyboard testing to verify sturdiness and longevity of keys and components. When you buy the E490, you get the perfect blend of value and durability.

Dazzle with style
When it comes to being on the go, not only is the ThinkPad E490 light enough to tuck under your arm while heading to your next client meeting, but its sure to look good too. Choose the durable plastic top cover for a more cost-effective model, or stick with the metal version for a thinner model. Either way, there are two colors to convey your personal style: sleek Silver or classic Black.

Go from 0 to 80 in 60 minutes
The ThinkPad E490 boosts your productivity with 13 hours of battery life.* Whats more, when you do need to plug in, Rapid Charge technology provides 80% capacity in just an hour. So a 60-minute lunch break or a layover can easily boost your battery for more than a days work.
