It looks like the Lenovo ThinkPad E485 and E585 laptops that leaked earlier this year aren’t the only new Lenovo notebooks with AMD Ryzen chips.

Notebook Check spotted a listing for an unannounced Lenovo ThinkPad A285 on the Lenovo website. It’s not there anymore but a screenshot provides some basic details about the upcoming laptop with a 12.5 inch display and support for AMD’s mobile chips.

The ThinkPad A285 is said to weigh 2.5 pounds, support up to a full HD IPS touchscreen display, up to 16GB of DDR4 memory, and up to an AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 2700U quad-core processor.

It supports rapid charging and “long battery life” and the computer will ship with Windows 10 Pro.

As the name suggests, the laptop seems to be a cousin to Lenovo’s ThinkPad X280, which has a similar design, but which is powered by an 8th-gen Intel Core “Kaby Lake Refresh” processor.

There’s no official word on when the ThinkPad A285 will be released or how much it will cost.

  1. I have blacklisted Lenovo (mostly for their spying but quality issues too) but if they get to be the only ones shipping serious Ryzen laptops, I might just reconsider.

    1. I too have had issue with them. From their Tablets to Ryzen laptops. Their 720S ideapad for example was built without duel channel for DDR4 memory. Why have a Ryzen chip and limit its potential this way? Its like they just cut off its marbles for no reason other than to save battery life or costs or both. Also their latest Tab 4 10 plus shipped with 4 gigs ram outside of the US but finally sold here with only 2 gigs! Id say don’t trust them. They are just careless in their builds and not worth anyone’s time and more importantly, money. BUYER BEWARE.
