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.

Award-Winning Keyboard Further Enhanced for Windows 8/8.1

Full-sized and spill-resistant, the legendary ThinkPad ergonomic keyboard is renowned for its full array of keys, excellent feel, and TrackPoint® pointing device. And now it's optimised for Windows 8/8.1 with convenient multimedia buttons, function-lock capability, and immediate access to view apps. Plus, a larger, smooth TrackPad with 5-point click integration can be configured multiple ways through Settings.

Long Battery Life

Nearly all-day computing with up to 6 hours unplugged lets you get a full day of work in on a single charge.

Fast Data Transfer

Move data quickly between the E540 and other devices with SuperSpeed USB 3.0, which 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.

Drop-Down Hinges & Active Protection System

Enjoy a laptop that lasts, thanks to the durability of drop-down hinges and Active Protection System (APS), which detects when the system is dropped and reacts by stopping the hard drive and protecting your data.

Integrated 720p HD Webcam & Dual Noise-Cancelling Microphones

Enjoy superior web conferencing on your E540, which includes a low-light sensitive 720p HD webcam with wide-angle viewing and face-tracking, dual noise-cancelling microphones with configurations for crystal-clear private and conference mode VOIP meetings, plus, convenient multimedia keys for quick and easy access to microphone, speaker, and camera controls.

Dolby® Speakers With Advanced Audio™

This suite of audio technologies enables your ThinkPad to deliver a crisp, clear surround sound experience over its built-in stereo speakers. The technology increases audio clarity for VOIP applications, maximises volume output without distortion, and improves dialogue clarity when watching videos.
