Lenovo ThinkPad E485 Overview
Lenovo ThinkPad E485 Drivers – When at the end of last fall, Lenovo presented to the market a completely new subseries of its ThinkPad business laptops with AMD processors, it was a bit surprising. After all, the first models of the new ThinkPad A series, the ThinkPad A275 and the ThinkPad A475, were based on AMD’s “Bristol-Ridge ” processors. These were already aged at that time and ready to be replaced by the “Raven-Ridge ” Mobile Ryzen processors. However, it was already clear that the first two models were only holders of positions to set the ThinkPad series to and save time to the Ryzen.
Now, almost a year later, the second generation of Lenovo’s ThinkPad A series is on the market, and finally contains the new Ryzen processors. The design continues to be based on the current models of the ThinkPad X and ThinkPad T series. For the smallest ThinkPad A285, the equivalent of Intel would be Lenovo’s ThinkPad X280, while our current test unit, the ThinkPad A485, is based on the design of the Lenovo ThinkPad T480. Therefore, we can omit the case description, connections and input devices, as you can find all this information in the detailed review of the Lenovo ThinkPad T480.
The 2018 laptop market is still clearly dominated by Intel, which is evident from the number of systems equipped with Intel processors. What’s different this year: AMD finally has a CPU platform that actually has a chance against Intel. Still, the number and selection of laptops with AMD Ryzen processors is still quite limited.
Lenovo ThinkPad E485 Drivers – One of the biggest drivers of PC sales these days are the companies. Not long ago, AMD announced that they are entering this market, cooperating with the largest PC manufacturers for companies, Dell, HP and Lenovo. Lenovo announced four models equipped with Ryzen of its well-known line of ThinkPad notebook computers and the first two are finally available.
The ThinkPad E485 and the ThinkPad E585 are budget models, made for small and medium enterprises. They lack some of the commercial and luxury features of the most expensive ThinkPad laptops to keep the price low: From now on, the 14-inch ThinkPad E485 model is available in the U.S. For an initial price of 561, the biggest 15. The one-inch ThinkPad E585 model also starts at 561 dollars. Both models are not only available in the U.S. Now, they are also available in countries like Australia, the United Kingdom, or Canada.
Notebookcheck already reviewed the ThinkPad E480 and ThinkPad E580, the Intel-equipped counterparts of the Ryzen ThinkPads E485 and E585. Of course, we plan to review these new AMD ThinkPads soon.
Lenovo ThinkPad E485 Drivers – Lenovo E-series ThinkPads are generally considered the budget line, and both the E485 and the E585 start at $561.00 in the United States, for the base model with a screen Ryzen 2500U, 1366×768, 4GB of RAM, 500GB of HDD and Windows 10 Home. Note that upgrading to a 1080p IPS display costs only $32, which is probably worth taking into account the difficulty of the after-sales updates of the display panels. Currently, only midrange 2500U are available, dual-core 2200U and higher-speed four-core 2700U are not available, although this is expected later this year, the page points.
Lenovo ThinkPad E485 Drivers – Similarly, like the final budget of the ThinkPad spectrum, the E series lacks certain features used in enterprise configurations, such as SmartCard and fingerprint readers. The E series also lacks the hot swap battery and the capacity of the docking port powered by USB-C (although the E485 and E585 are loaded via USB-C), as well as the touch screens and the ThinkShutter plastic sliding control that covers the Webcam when it’s not in use. These are usually not a decisive factor for most organizations.
