Lenovo ThinkPad L480 Drivers for Windows 7/8.1/10 Download

Lenovo ThinkPad L480 Drivers– The Lenovo ThinkPad L480 is supposed to lie between these two systems, focusing on educational institutions and public administration, two areas in which good pricing is the key. With a base price of 559 euros (~ 685 USD) in its basic configuration, the ThinkPad L480 is far too expensive for the fields it aims. Note that this configuration only offers an Intel Celeron 3965U processor with 4GB of memory and a 500 GB hard drive. Similarly, you will have to settle for a TN-Panel at this price. More reasonable in our opinion, our test device configuration offers an Intel Core i5-8250U processor, 8GB of DDR4 memory and a 256 GB SSD drive. In this configuration, the price increases to 959 euros (~ 1180 dollars). The high-end configuration contains the Intel Core i7-8550U processor, a processor that, on paper, should be slightly faster than the one found in our configuration. It should be noted, however, that, under certain conditions, an Intel Core i5-8250U can actually beat an Intel Core i7-8550U processor. It is therefore essential to compare the test results well.

Lenovo ThinkPad L480 Drivers – In comparison tests, the Lenovo ThinkPad L480 will fight mainly against its own brothers. All the laptops in our comparison are based on Intel’s latest Kaby-Lake architecture, allowing for high performance comparability. The oldest model in our range is the Lenovo ThinkPad L470, which should mainly be used to illustrate the improvement of performance between generations. Below you will find the technical details specific to each device mentioned in this review.

Lenovo ThinkPad L480 Drivers – The now non-removable battery gives a more thin chassis than the ThinkPad L470. Similarly, the base is rather stable, an important force is needed to deform it. Applying a pressure on the center of the base causes a slight bending, even if it does not come out of the norm. The local pressure on the screen cover is not displayed on the panel. Aesthetically, the Lenovo ThinkPad L480 is very basic, remaining true to its ThinkPad lineage. Only the silver logo with a red “I dot” covering the screen cover. The quality of the production is good, as well as the hinges that make the screen movements even more untouched during use. The opening of one hand is unfortunately only partially possible, the last third of the opening process requiring considerable force, so it is necessary to hold the base by hand.

Lenovo ThinkPad L480 Drivers – The Lenovo ThinkPad L480 offers a good selection of ports. The four USB ports, including two C-types, offer great scalability. In addition to this, one of the Type-C USB ports can be used as a load port if you wish. External screens can be connected directly via HDMI or via an optional docking station using the two USB-Type ports or a proprietary port. Also on the left are a MicroSD card reader and an Ethernet socket. A nano-SIM card slot is integrated but not usable due to the lack of a WWAN module in our configuration. The location of the ports is acceptable, although the Ethernet jack on the front of the device may be quite heavy.

Lenovo has moved, as we saw on the E series (Lenovo ThinkPad E480/E680), from an SD card to a MicroSD card reader. We doubt that this is advantageous for users, who will now have to rely on adapters to transfer images from their camera to their laptops. The transfer rates are correct and above average, although they are lagging behind the image transfer competition, leading to the last place with only 71 MB/s for the L480. The MicroSD card reader operates at least 3 USB speeds. The UHS-II based drive in the Dell Latitude 5490 is much more impressive in this regard.

Lenovo ThinkPad L480 Drivers – For wireless communications, the Lenovo ThinkPad L480 relies on an Intel dual-band AC 8265 Wireless adapter with additional support for Bluetooth 4.2. The transfer rates during the tests were good, reaching about 667 Mbps during sending and 529 Mbps when receiving data. This is a higher than average result for office equipment. Those who prefer a wired connection may use the Gigabit Ethernet port located on the left side. Those who wish to sail on the road may have to pay an additional 62 euros (about 76 euros) for the optional WWAN module.
