I believe that we were all hoping for a different price tag. I've just checked our corporate discount at Lenovo and T480 is 100 USD less than A485 with similar specs.
I need to check one more time because this is hard to believe.
Daily drivers: x225 FrankenPad and t430

I'm waiting for some of the Lenovo insiders to educate us on how these models fill a very important market gap, but a 7-row keyboard (or a 3:2 screen) do not. :)

I want to get my hands on a AMD thinkpad. Youtuber BBISHOPPCM'S World said he was going to get one but he ended going with the T480 because of a rumor that the chassis was more flimsy on the A485/A285.

The more pertinent questions are does the BIOS enable enough power to the machine that it doesn't gimp the GPU without overrunning the cooling system under load.
