Lenovo ThinkPad A285 overview

  • 1Description
Found in: Work Laptops

The 12.5" ThinkPad A285 Series Notebook from Lenovo is a portable business system designed for working professionals who are always on the move. This compact notebook measures 0.7" high, weighs 2.8 pounds, and it's powered by a 2.0 GHz AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 2500U quad-core processor and 8GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM, which allow users to handle robust workloads and multitasking. For storing your important files, the ThinkPad A285 includes a 256GB PCIe NVMe Opal 2 solid-state drive. In terms of available ports, the A285 includes a single always-on USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A port, a single USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A port, two USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C ports that offer power delivery, and a microSD card reader. Additionally, this system houses a 3.5mm audio combo jack for all your listening needs.

The ThinkPad A285 features a Full HD 12.5" IPS display with a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, which offers crisp detail, vivid colors, and varied viewing angles for your digital consumption. Furthermore, with an integrated AMD Radeon Vega 8 graphics chipset driving this display, the ThinkPad A285 can handle most visually intensive tasks and even casual gaming. If you wish to extend or mirror your display onto an external monitor, the ThinkPad A285 has a HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4 output.

Other integrated features include Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) for connecting to wireless networks and Bluetooth 4.1 for connecting peripherals to your A285 wirelessly. Gigabit Ethernet can be had with the use of an optional dongle. There's also a 720p webcam built-in along with a backlit keyboard and fingerprint reader. To ensure your data's security, the A285 has Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) installed with a discrete Trusted Platform Module chip for encryption and a Kensington lock slot to deter potential thieves.

Business-Ready
Built with an accelerated processing unit architecture, the ThinkPad A285 features an AMD Ryzen 5 PRO processor, which delivers power-efficient computing.
IT Friendly
The ThinkPad A285 features robust biometric security and data encryption, ensuring a high level of enterprise-grade protection. With easy serviceability, you get ready access to internal hardware components for faster troubleshooting or upgrading.
AMD Radeon Vega 8 Graphics
The AMD Radeon Vega 8 GPU is designed to output lifelike visuals, colors, and minimized lag time. Review creative designs, edit photos, and enjoy the crisp display quality that the ThinkPad A285 offers.
Security
Lenovo's ThinkPad A285 offers processor-level security features to keep your data safe, including Windows Hello biometric face recognition and an optional fingerprint sensor. Additionally, this laptop also includes a Discrete Trusted Platform Module, which encrypts all your data, including passwords.
Dock Compatible
The ThinkPad A285 integrates with the ThinkPad Pro Dock (sold separately), a capability that's shared across most of the 2018 ThinkPad models. The USB Type-C side mechanical dock easily connects and automatically levels your device. Once docked, your ThinkPad stays securely in place and sits at a slightly tilted, ergonomic keyboard angle for comfort.
Durable Build
The ThinkPad A285 is MIL-STD-810G certified and can endure temperatures down to -4°F. Additionally, the A285 resists shock, drops, and tough environmental conditions like dust storms.
Portable Design
Starting at 2.8 pounds, this 12.5" laptop is easy to carry, whether you're on the move between meetings or running across town. Travel worry-free with up to 10.2 hours of battery life and RapidCharge technology, which is designed to charge your system up to 80% in 60 minutes.

Window 10 Pro

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.
Cortana
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 Notebook, 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 business 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.
