Like the ThinkPad T460, the ThinkPad T470 also offers an SD card reader, allowing you to expand your data storage on your laptop. However, there are some differences between the two models, so it's important to make sure you get the right one for your needs.
The first difference is in the power and input requirements of the ThinkPad T470s. It has an integrated backlight, making it easier to use but is still capable of delivering a good amount of brightness. The ThinkPad T470, on the other hand, does not.
In terms of memory capacity, the ThinkPad T470s has 8GB of hard drive space, as opposed to the 8GB on the ThinkPad T470. There's also an additional slot where you can plug in an SD card reader. The ThinkPad T470 has a built-in SD card reader, but this is not a universal reader. You must connect it via the Kensington lock port.
In terms of additional ports, the ThinkPad T470s has three USB ports and a Kensington lock slot. These are not universal, but it should come as no surprise since it's a dock accessory. On the other hand, the ThinkPad T470 only has a single USB port and only one Kensington lock slot.
The ThinkPad T470 is also backwards compatible with the ThinkPad T460, which means you can use both docks together and still be able to use your older SD card reader. The ThinkPad T470, however, cannot use an SD card reader that's in the middle of its internal hard drive.
The second major difference between the ThinkPad T470s and the ThinkPad T460 is in terms of the processing power. The ThinkPad T470 comes with a quad-core processor, which is not very powerful, but it will still be sufficient for basic tasks.
Compared to the quad-core processor of the ThinkPad T460, the ThinkPad T470 has only a single core. For people who tend to do serious computing, this won't be much of a problem. For users who are simply working with their laptops for a few hours a day, however, it may be an issue.
The ThinkPad T470 also has a slower graphics processor, which will cause it to run a bit slower than the ThinkPad T460. It also doesn't have a DVD burner, a microphone, or a webcam. Of course, all of these can be added, but they're fairly minor factors in general use.
If you're upgrading from the ThinkPad T460, there are some other things to consider. For one thing, if you want a mouse, you have to choose the ThinkPad T470s or the T460. If you need a replacement keyboard, you'll have to choose the T470, as well.
If you do choose to buy both, remember that you can often save money by buying a ThinkPad T460, but also getting a ThinkPad T470 docking station for your notebook. This allows you to take your ThinkPad T460 with you wherever you go. This is especially useful for traveling professionals who need to carry their laptops around.
It's a good idea to compare prices when purchasing a ThinkPad T460 and a ThinkPad T470 docking station. Prices vary widely depending on where you shop, so the best way to find the best price is to check prices at a variety of locations. Most laptop vendors sell the docking station at the same price, but some sell it atmuch cheaper prices.
Overall, the ThinkPad T470 is a good companion for those who use their computers for basic tasks, but need to carry them around with them. They're also good for those who have other laptops and need to use them too.
