    Lenovo OneLink Technology

    Get more from your power cable! OneLink technology is a unique interface that simplifies connectivity through a single cable to the ThinkPad OneLink Dock. The OneLink dock provides dedicated video, USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, and audio—all while charging your notebook.

    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 8.1

    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 8.1 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 7.4 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.

    Lenovo Cloud Storage

    Protect your critical data, while also making access to information and file-sharing quick and convenient. Automatically back-up and synchronise data across the organization, while enabling access from multiple devices. Data is encrypted on transfer for an extra level of security.
