    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.

    Precision Keyboard Enhanced for Windows 10

    Full-sized and spill-resistant, the ergonomic ThinkPad keyboard is renowned for its array of keys, excellent feel and TrackPoint® pointing. Optimized for Windows 10 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 3K IPS Display

    The powerful HD, FHD and 3K IPS (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.

    3G Connectivity and NFC Technology

    Connecting to 3G wireless networks is simple with a pre-installed SIM card and the easy-to-use Lenovo Access Connection tool. You can also configure your T540p with Near Field Communication (NFC) for an easy, secure way to share data, link devices, pair with networks, and other tasks by lightly tapping two devices together.

    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, a carbon fiber top and a light-weight magnesium bottom 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 a choice of four 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.

    Solid build, very good keyboard, excellent screen (3k) and useful shortcut keys.
    Not really, my problems are with Windows 10, not the PC.

    Compared to my previous Thinkpad T500 the trackpad is terrible picking up many touches wrongly. The lack of physical buttons at the front is a nightmare - the trackpad can't decide if I am trying to click and drag or "pinch zoom". Add into the fact that the whole track pad moves to "press" the button means you can't be accurate with a click.

    The change of the keyboard layout from the long standing Thinkpad layout to this new (copied from all the other manufacturers) layout is terrible for a business workstation. The functions keys are too small to be used frequently, the "home/end/insert/delete" are in no sensible positions relative to each other, and the moving of the "print screen" button to the location of the properties menu button just makes no sense.

    Awesome screen resolution, though it does make text very small. Built-in mobile broadband is fast and reliable.
    The keyboard offset to the left is taking some getting used to, as is the buttonless trackpad. I miss the keyboard light that my previous ThinkPads had.
