Lenovo ThinkPad T400s

Lenovo on Tuesday launched an anticipated refinement of one of its most important notebooks in the ThinkPad T400s. The 14-inch notebook takes advantage of both an LED-backlit display as well as the same, small and light drive cage used in the X301 to shrink both the thickness and weight of the T400 without compromising its feature set. It measures just over 0.8 inches thick and is 20 percent lighter at just under 4 pounds, but can still fit a DVD or Blu-ray drive as well as regular Core 2 Duo notebook processors.

The PC can also claim up to six hours of battery life even with the slimmer profile, in part through an option for a 128GB solid-state drive; conventional storage tops out at 250GB. Expansion is also a centerpiece with both DisplayPort and VGA output for displays as well as options for 3G and WiMAX long-range wireless or ultra wideband for short-range peripherals. Buyers can also pick from either an ExpressCard/34 slot or a 5-in-1 card reader depending on what they're most likely to use.

A base T400s costs $1,599 and is outfitted with a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of DDR3 memory, a 120GB hard drive, a DVD burner and Intel's GMA 4500 integrated graphics. Besides the networking and storage options, the ThinkPad can be outfitted with up to 8GB of RAM, a 2.53GHz Core 2 Duo and a 2GB Turbo Memory cache to speed up load times. Systems are available today and vary in ship times depending on the order.
