    4th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors

    4th generation Intel® Core™ processors deliver the performance to increase productivity for your business. Devices turn on in an instant and are always up-to-date. You can multitask quickly and move effortlessly between applications, collaborate wirelessly in a high quality videoconference — all with the convenience of longer battery life. Plus, you can guard against identity theft and ensure safe access to your network with built-in security features. In fact, the only thing more amazing than an Intel Core processor-based PC is what your users will do with it.

    Windows 8

    Select a model with the new Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro to enjoy the best of both work and play.

    Precision Keyboard Enhanced for Windows 8

    Full-sized and spill-resistant, the ergonomic ThinkPad keyboard is renowned for its array of keys, excellent feel and TrackPoint® pointing. Optimized for Windows 8 with convenient multimedia buttons and immediate access to view apps, it has LED status indicators and function-lock capability. With a larger, smooth trackpad and 5-point click integration—indicated by subtle bumps and stripes, the keyboard can be configured multiple ways, while the optional backlight makes working in the dark effortless.

    15.6” HD, FHD or IPS 3K Display

    The powerful HD, FHD and IPS 3K (2880 X 1620 pixels) display options deliver bright, crisp visuals and a wide viewing range. Anti-glare technology makes the screen comfortable to look at even over the long haul.

    4G/3G Connectivity

    Connecting to 4G and 3G wireless networks is simple with a pre-installed SIM card and the easy-to-use Lenovo Access Connection tool.

    NVIDIA GeForce Graphics

    With the NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 730M graphics processor, you are assured of a richer visual and faster gaming experience. You can also preview/create HD video up to 4x faster and perfect/share photos in less than half the time.

    Ultradurable and MIL-SPEC Tested

    The T540p meets eight US military-spec tests for ruggedness, durability, and quality: high pressure, humidity, vibration, high temperature, temperature shock, low pressure (15,000 ft), low temperature, and dust. In addition, innovative roll-cage technology and glass-fiber reinforced plastic add extra strength and rigidity.

    1TB Storage and USB 3.0

    Store up to 1TB of data locally and transfer data ten times faster with two USB 3.0 ports

    Dolby Advanced Audio v2

    A suite of audio technology from Dolby delivers a crisp, clear cinematic surround sound for music, movies, games, and more. Hear every detail clearly and experience the full impact of your entertainment anywhere.

    VGA Port

    A VGA port for projector connections in conference rooms is still a business must-have, and a native VGA means no dongles to buy/lose/replace.
