This 14-inch laptop was introduced in 2018 and can run Mint 19.1 (based on Ubuntu 18.10) out of the box. Like many other Thinkpads, it is sold in many different configurations. I have only tested with a live USB image, not a full install.

To select a boot device or enter BIOS setup: press ENTER immediately when the red Lenovo logo appears. You only have a fraction of a second.
It is likely possible to control the battery charging to extend the lifetime of the built-in battery; see Thinkpad battery management. I have not tested this on the T480.
