Lenovo has unveiled some new members of the ThinkPad family, and they're packing some new features inside slimmer bodies.
Lenovo's latest additions to the ThinkPad lineup are the T440, the T440s, the ThinkPad X240, the S440 and the S540.
The T440 and T440s are 14-inch ultrabook models, and are considered lower-end machines. They are thinner and lighter than
previous T-series models
, and while the two are very similar, the T440s is a bit higher-end than its sibling. The T440s has a Core i7 processor and a built-in 1080p touchscreen while the T440 only sports a Core i5 and an optional touchscreen (which you have to pay extra for). Both do, however, have larger trackpads.
The T440 will launch with an $899 USD price tag while the T440s will be $1,149 USD.
lie the S440 and S540. They're going to be targeted at European and Asian markets, packing features like touchscreens, discrete graphics, and up to 4th generation Intel Core i7 CPUs. But the S440 has a 14-inch display while the S540 has a 15-inch screen.
The S440 will run €699 while the S540 will sell for €649.
On the high end of the lineup is the ThinkPad X240. It has the option for touch on its 12.5 inch, 1080p display, supports up to 4th generation Intel Core i7 processors, and has about 17 hours of battery life. It's also pretty light and thin at about three pounds at 0.8 inches thick.
You can grab an X240 for $1,099 USD.
Also noteworthy is that all new ThinkPads will have Power Bridge technology, which uses both an internal and a removable battery. It lets you swap them without having to shut your computer down, providing better battery life. What's more is that the batteries are interchangeable between all new ThinkPad notebooks.
”Constant improvements and a strong ambition to always build a better laptop has resulted in thinner, lighter and longer lasting ThinkPad laptops with a simpler and cleaner design and up to an incredible 17 hours of battery life,” said Dilip Bhatia, vice president, Marketing, Think Business Group, Lenovo. “After extensive research with hundreds of computer users around the world, Lenovo has reset the standard for business class Ultrabooks. The result of thousands of hours spent with consumers and business users have contributed to innovations and enhancements optimized for business and personal use. The new ThinkPad design meets the changing needs of IT managers and end-users.”
