ThinkPad series notebooks are among Lenovo's best laptops

The ThinkPad T495s on sale packs a 14-inch (1920 x 1080) display, a 2.3-GHz AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 3700U quad-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and Radeon Vega 10 graphics. 

Although we didn't test it, we got a first look at Lenovo ThinkPad T495s before its release. Design-wise, it keeps the familiar ThinkPad look with its ink-black, soft-touch chassis. 

Like most ThinkPad laptops, the T495s is engineered military-grade specs which makes it pretty darned tough. And when it comes to the security that business pros look for a laptop, the ThinkPad T495s has you covered. 

Its ThinkShield security platform keeps your software safe from unauthorized access. ThinkPad Privacy Guard makes the display hard to read unless you're super closeby and can be set to alert you when prying eyes are detected. 

And to prevent stealth spying, the notebook features a ThinkShutter webcam cover.

Connectivity-wise, the ThinkPad T495s offers a good select with two USB Type-A 3.1 ports, two  USB Type-C ports and an HDMI 2.0 port. There's also a headphone/mic combo jack and microSD card reader built-in. 

At 2.8 pounds and 13 x 8.9 x 0.6-inches, the ThinkPad T495s is in around the same size and weight class as the ThinkPad X1 Carbon 8 Gen and the HP Elite Dragonfly (11.9 x 7.8 x 0.6 inches, 2.5 pounds). 

Now just $749, the ThinkPad T495s is a tremendous value if you're looking for a powerful laptop for work and everything else.
