Thin at 0.79" and weighing 3.63 lb, the 14" ThinkPad T470 Notebook from Lenovo is designed for business users who are on-the-go. It is powered by a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7-6500U Dual-Core processor which allows you to run multiple applications simultaneously. If you need more power, the system can be overclocked to 3.1 GHz using Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. The 8GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently used files and programs.
The 14" IPS display features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 screen resolution, an anti-glare finish, LED-backlighting, a 16:9 aspect ratio, a contrast ratio of 700:1, a brightness of 250 cd/m2, and viewing angles of 170°. The integrated Intel HD Graphics 520 chipset delivers a sharp, clear picture, and you'll also be able to output video to an external display at resolutions up to 4096 x 2304 using the system's HDMI 1.4b and Thunderbolt 3 ports, the latter of which supports DisplayPort 1.2.
For long-term storage of your files, this ThinkPad T470 is equipped with a 256GB Opal2 NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD, which offers quick access to your data. While this SSD may not have the larger storage capacity of a traditional spinning hard drive, it contains no moving parts which helps it to be more resistant against bumps, drops, and other kinds of damage. SSDs also receive less wear and tear than traditional hard drives, as they don't have any read and write heads.
If you want to add external storage, optical drives, memory card readers, and more, the ThinkPad T470 offers one 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 port that also supports 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-C. There are also three 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports, one of which doubles as an always-on charging port. Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac Wi-Fi are built-in for wired and wireless networking, and Bluetooth 4.1 technology will allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals. Memory cards may be accessed via a built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC card reader that supports SD 3.0 and UHS-I flash media. Other integrated features include a 720p webcam, dual-array microphones, and stereo speakers with Dolby Advanced Audio.
The ThinkPad T470 Mobile Workstation includes a 45W AC adapter, a power cord, an integrated 3-cell / 24Wh lithium-polymer battery, and an external 3-cell / 24Wh lithium-polymer battery, both of which provide a total of up to 13.9 hours of use before recharging is required. While the installed operating system is Windows 7 Pro (64-bit), a Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) license is included at no additional cost.
