4.width

336.6mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.height

232.5mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.Uses a fanless design
Lenovo ThinkPad T480 14" Intel Core i5-8350U 1.7GHz / 8GB RAM / 512GB SSD

Uses LED backlighting, resulting in better image quality, more vibrant colors and richer blacks.

Performance

1.RAM

8GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
2.RAM speed

2400MHz

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
3.Uses flash storage
Lenovo ThinkPad T480 14" Intel Core i5-8350U 1.7GHz / 8GB RAM / 512GB SSD
Flash-based storage devices such as SSDs have no mechanical components. Due to this, they are typically faster, run silently, and are more shock resistant than traditional HDDs.
4.CPU speed

4 x 1.7GHz (Intel Core i5-8350U)

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
5.internal storage

512GB

The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
6.maximum memory size
The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
