The E490 will keep you productive.
Working anywhere just got easier
The thin and light E490 was built for the road warrior. Its ergonomic keyboard on the E490 was engineered for comfort and typing accuracy. Its backlighting, available as an option, lets you use it in low-light surroundings and complete even the most urgent of tasks despite the late hours. And with up to 13 hours of life in its battery, you’ll get a lot of uninterrupted time without worrying about electrical outlets. Stay one step ahead, no matter where the job takes you.
Pin-stripe suit optional
The E490 features an impressive design with a narrow bezel and thinner, sleek appearance. Its vivid display completes the look – one that is sure to impress clients and put a memorable face on your business.
Lasts long enough to have its own career
The E490 was built to last and tested for durability. It packs the renowned ThinkPad reliability and is backed by a one-year base warranty, with up to three years total available.
Don’t forget to smile
Whether you’re meeting with a prospective client or your colleagues around the world, the E490 has you covered for a superb video-conferencing experience. Helping it deliver an enhanced VoIP experience are its dual-array microphone, HD webcam, 14” IPS FHD display choice, and stereo speakers with Dolby® Advanced Audio™. Revel in the rich sound and visuals so crisp and clear, you’ll feel like you’re in the same room with the other meeting participants.
Let your assistant do the heavy lifting
Start with Windows 10 Pro (optional) for your E490, which includes your own personal assistant, Cortana. With an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor, you’ll get powerful performance and speed. Plus, you’ll never have to hunt for files or photos or meetings again – let Cortana do the work for you! Integrate Cortana with your calendar and you can even search by when and whom you worked on a file with, rather than having to remember file names.
Laugh at would-be data thieves
We know how important your data is. That’s why the E490 features a discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) 2.0 chip, which works in conjunction with Windows 10 Pro Bitlocker. Together they encrypt all your data, as well as your passwords.
Go ahead – forget your password
With the option of an optional Touch Type fingerprint reader, you’ll never need to remember your password again! Simply touch the fingerprint scanner to access your E490, or use your face with Windows Hello facial recognition software and login automatically. No need to worry about remembering passwords again.
