Lenovo Thinkpad T440s – Shape, Size & Design Factors

Wherever you may be placed, the ThinkPad T440s is built to get business done.

Slim Laptop – The slim laptop measures 0.8 by 13.1 by 8.9 inches (HWD), but with an internal roll-cage, and a chassis made of magnesium alloy and carbon fiber, it packs a surprisingly rugged design into its 3.5-pound weight.

Shock Absorbent –  Built to meet Mil-Spec testing requirements, the ThinkPad T440s is built to withstand highs and lows of atmospheric pressure, temperature, and humidity, and capable of withstanding a fair amount of abuse in the form of shock, vibration, and dust.

Dual-Battery System or Power Bridge – The ThinkPad T440s is also made for use on the go, with a dual-battery system, which Lenovo calls “Power Bridge.” The laptop packs its own internal 3-cell, 24Wh battery which is sealed into the chassis, but there’s also a swappable rear battery that can be added for use on the go, and it’s even hot-swappable, letting you switch out one battery for another without having to stop working and shut off the machine.

Lenovo sells the ThinkPad T440s with a 3-cell, 24Wh battery as the standard configuration, or with a 6-cell, 72Wh extended life battery for only $5 more.

Resolution Display – The 13-inch 1,920-by-1,080 resolution display looks great, and offers full HD (1080p) support for all of your video viewing, web browsing, and everything else. Because the higher resolution displays finer detail, it allows more effective multitasking with side by side windows.

“Precision Keyboard” Design With Glowing White Backlight –  The full-size chiclet keyboard utilizes Lenovo’s “precision keyboard” design, which has sculpted keycaps that gives a tactile typing experience. In addition to being a bit more comfortable, the keys are also more visible in low light thanks to a glowing white backlight.


Sprouting up between the keys is a red TrackPoint, and the TouchPad has five buttons–three along the top for use with the TrackPoint and two on the bottom for standard trackpad use. The touchpad has a smooth glass surface, which lets fingers glide easily and registers various swipes and gestures rather well.

720p HD webcam – Above the laptop display you’ll find a 720p HD webcam, paired with two noise-cancelling microphones that isolate your voice and filter out background noise–perfect for video conferencing. The camera also has good low-light sensitivity, and face-tracking technology, so you don’t have to worry about focus problems when shifting in your seat.

Performance Measure –

The Lenovo ThinkPad T440s is equipped with a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5-4200U processor, paired with 4GB of RAM. As a result, the ThinkPad T440s offers strong performance, and completed PCMark 7 with 4,562 points and Cinebench with 2.37 points.

With the combined internal battery (3-cell, 24Wh) and the standard external battery (3-cell, 24Wh), the ThinkPad T440s lasted a respectable 7 hours 21 minutes in our battery rundown test.

Conclusion

The Lenovo ThinkPad T440s offers solid performance and a design that will look good in the board room while still surviving the occasional cross-country business trip.

While the performance is a bit average, it’s a testament to the progress made in the Ultrabook category that such impressive performance has become standard. And though the battery life (with the standard battery) is on par with the competition, the addition of an extended life battery and the hot-swap capability definitely adds an element of flexibility not offered by other systems.
