T480/s

shop owner says that they have only T470s / T460s available

are you based in the US? If so I have both available.

no , actually I am from Bangladesh ...

sorry for that, shipping would make it unfeasible. Check for any other models from xx80 or xx90 generations. Quad core will be very helpful. Alternative is the T460p or T470p, those i7 models are quad core if the SKU ends in HQ.

thank you so much sir...
I am going tell them ...
They also offer me x1 carbon which is i5 8th gen... But what they asking the price isn't value for money

i5 8th gen U series will outperform i7 7th gen U series for most applications

As Dominic said, it's better to take the upgrade processor and RAM wise to an T480 or T480s

T480 for sure. It’s a quad core and not that much more expensive than a T470 -at least in the USA.

It also has the removable battery and internal battery (I think). T490 did away with that and only had internal battery.

shop owner says that they have only T470s / T460s available 😔

ok. I mean, T470 isn't a bad machine.
