Lenovo ThinkPad T470 overview

  • 1Description

The Lenovo 14" ThinkPad T470 Notebook is well suited for business and government users who are on-the-go by coming in under 3.7 pounds and equipped with security features as well as an Intel Core i5-7300U processor, 8GB of RAM, and 180GB SSD. The Intel Core i5-7300U processor comes armed with two cores that operate at a stock speed of 2.6 GHz and can achieve speeds of up to 3.5 GHz when running demanding tasks. In addition to providing quick boot times and access to data, the 180GB PCIe NVMe M.2 Opal 2.0 SSD secures sensitive data with a hardware-based AES-256 encryption engine, which self-encrypts data on the fly. Other notable security technologies include vPro as well as TPM 2.0 that grants the notebook an added layer of security by storing passwords on a crypto chip rather than the storage drive to make the T470 compliant for most corporate and government institutions. Furthermore, gaining access to notebook can be done without typing a password by using the onboard fingerprint reader.

Lenovo has outfitted this ThinkPad T470 notebook with a 14" IPS display that has a brightness level of 250 cd/m2, a contrast ratio of 700:1, and a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, which is driven by an integrated Intel HD Graphics 620 chipset. For expanding the onscreen workspace, HDMI 1.4b and Thunderbolt 3 ports are on board.

Aside from visuals, the ThinkPad T470 is equipped with three USB 3.0 Type-A ports, so that the Windows 10 Pro operating system can access printers, external storage drives, and other useful peripherals. Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11ac Wi-Fi are available for wired and wireless networking, while Bluetooth 4.1 technology will allow you to wirelessly pair the system with headsets and mice. Once connected online, you may conduct face-to-face conversations with coworkers and friends, using the integrated webcam, pair of speakers, and microphone. There's also a 4-in-1 card reader that can accept MMC, SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards. Additionally, powering all these features are accomplished via a two-battery system that provides up to 13.9 hours of use before recharging.

ThinkPad T470 Features

Thunderbolt 3
Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum bi-directional throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to simultaneously connect two 4K displays or one 5K display. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.

Windows 10 Pro (64-bit)

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana, can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the Internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information-gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
Windows 10 Pro
The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for businesses users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.
