    Hello Everyone!

    I want to ask the owners of T480 here

    I am looking at getting a T480 with WQHD, but I am worried about the reduction in battery life. How is the battery life affected by the increase in screen resolution? And is the FHD screen that bad if I were to consider it?

    Also, if you are running a 72 Whr battery in the back, how is the weight like?

    Thanks!

    For my T460s WQHD comes with standard 49mWh can easily last more than 5 hours per changed.

    If you more concern to work on-site without any power point , might be decide to add up extra battery capacity to last whole day long without plug in.

    Actually for WQHD screen won't drain more than half and hour battery.

    To be honest for option to WQHD it's more helpful for overall viewing and almost full sRGB colours.

    Hopefully it does not affect it too much. I was able to get a T480 for a good price through one of our distributors for work but did not have the ability to customize the specs of it, they only had a couple models to pick from and the one model that they had with a MX150 in it, only came fully spec'd with the higher resolution screen. Personally I don't feel like I need that res on a 14" laptop and wanted the bezel of the 1080p screen with the option to put a physical cover on the webcam but for $1400 for a t480, i7, MX150, 512 ssd, high res screen...I couldn't really complain too much and ended up going with it.

    How's your T480 with WQHD display? How many hours are you getting from it?
