4th Generation Intel Core Processors
4th generation (Haswell) Intel Core processors are designed to deliver business-grade performance to increase productivity. These processors allow devices to turn-on quickly and stay up-to-date. These processors also allow you to multi-task efficiently, move effortlessly between applications, and collaborate wirelessly in a high quality video-conference, all with the convenience of longer battery life. Additionally, you can guard against identity theft and ensure safe access to your network with built-in security features.
Thunderbolt Port
Thunderbolt is a connection technology that simultaneously supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices through a single, compact port. Simply connect the ThinkPad W540 to multiple displays and devices with one cable, then sync and backup at up to 10 Gb/s (twice the speed of USB 3.0), capture and edit multiple uncompressed video streams in real time, and daisy-chain your devices to simplify your workflow. The Thunderbolt port also accepts mini DisplayPort connections.
ISV Certification
Because photographers, light CAD/CAM users, digital content creators, and other industry pros require proven performance and software stability, more than 100 applications are tested and certified by industry-leading independent software vendors.
Backlit Keyboard with Windows 8 Support
Full-sized and spill-resistant, ThinkPad ergonomic keyboards are known for their full array of keys, feel, and UltraNav TrackPoint pointing device. The 6-row backlit keyboard features a numeric keypad and is also optimized for Windows 8 with convenient multimedia buttons, immediate access to view apps, LED indicators, and function-lock capability. There's also a large, smooth trackpad and 5-point click integration - indicated by subtle bumps and stripes. Additionally, the touchpad features a Mylar surface and multi-touch functionality.
