New T431s is the thinnest T Series notebook ever

Lenovo has pulled the wraps off its latest ultrabook computer promising a design that is thinner and lighter than its previous ultrabook offerings. The computer has a new innovative trackpad and an enhanced keyboard with refined aesthetics.

The enhanced trackpad is an evolution of the TrackPoint and TouchPad and features a larger, smooth, responsive multi-touch glass surface. The surface is optimized for Windows 8 gestures, click functionality, and has an integrated TrackPoint behavior. The new ThinkPad is the thinnest and lightest T series computer Lenovo has ever made.

 
“We obsess over the pursuit of perfection – as evidenced by more than 20 years of Lenovo ThinkPad design and engineering accolades. However, perfection cannot be achieved without a key ingredient: customer insight,” said Dilip Bhatia, vice president and general manager, ThinkPad Business Unit. “The ThinkPad T431s is the first device featuring Lenovo’s new design, which represents a comprehensive examination of user experience and input.”

The T431s weighs 3.6 pounds and is 0.82-inches thick. To reach that weight, Lenovo use a carbon fiber top cover and a chassis. The machine uses a third-generation Intel Core processor with Turbo Boost. Graphics are handled by Intel HD graphics (which powers a 1600x900 display) and the computer can be fitted up to 12 GB of RAM.


Other features include a pair of USB 3.0 ports, an integrated fingerprint reader, hardware password manager, and self-encrypting drives (SSDs or traditional HDDS are available). The machine also features an always-on USB port to charge other devices such as smartphones.

The T431s ultrabook will be available starting in April with pricing starting off at $949.

If there arent, they need to do what Apple does. Pay some LCD maker to make it.

The problem isnt just teh 14 inch, its Lenovo's viewpoint toward LCD in the first place. They just dont put priority on it. Same as Dell, built in LCD's are always crappy in all of their laptops and AIO's. The difference with Lenovo is their quality is great. Lowest failure rates in the business and other than the screens thier products are simply awesome.
