Multitouch Display

The latest in touch technology delivers effortless usability, featuring an extra bright 350 nit, HD IPS (in-plane switching) display for nearly 180-degree viewing angles.

Battery Life

7 hours (with Battery Safeguard Hardware Authentication).
Magnesium Alloy Construction With Corning® Gorilla® Glass

Slim Ultrabook design, built for durability yet only 20 mm (.78″) thin.

Active Protection System (APS)

An accelerometer detects movement and stops the drive when a fall or similar event is detected. Rubber mounts are used for the hard disk drive (rather than rails) and the HDD connector is not rigidly attached to the board, so the connector absorbs shock and impact and protects against system damage.

Superior Web Conferencing

Low-light sensitive 720p HD webcam with wide-angleviewing and face-tracking, dual array microphones with configurations for crystal-clear private and conference mode VoIP meetings, and keyboard noise suppression technology.

SuperSpeed USB 3.0

Enables up to 10 times faster file transfer, allowing for lightning-fast copying of large media files, as well as seamless connections between audio- and video-related peripherals.

Lenovo Solutions for Small Business

Built on the Intel® Small Business Advantage platform and includes unique security and productivity features to keep your small-to-mid-sized business up and running: after-hours maintenance, software monitoring, USB blocker, energy savings, and the ability to backup and restore applications.
