Lenovo ThinkPad T400s launched
Lenovo Philippines today launched a new ultralight and slim laptop for the business and enterprise market — several variants of the Lenovo ThinkPad T400s series.
This Thinkpad is one of the lightest in the 14″ category at just 1.77kg or 3.91 lbs. (as a point of comparison, the 14″ Acer Timeline is 1.9kg and the 12.1″ HP Pavillion DV2 is 1.73kg). It’s also just 0.83″ thin at its thickest base.
The top configuration includes:
Lenovo ThinkPad T400s
14.1″ display screen @ 1440×900 pixels
Intel Core 2 Duo SP 9600 2.53GHz (Low Voltage)
3GB DDR3 RAM
Intel X4500 Graphics
250GB SATA HDD
Built-in DVD-RW Dual-Layer or Blu-Ray
5-in-1 card reader or 34mm ExpressCard
VGA + Display Port
6-cell battery (average of 6 hours battery life)
There are also options for WWAN, WiMax and Ultra WideBand (GPS). The 3G SIM slot is under the battery compartment but Lenovo says it’s currently locked to Verizon (they’ll need to talk to telcos in order for it to be usable in the Philippines; same with WiMax).
Lenovo also changes some keyboard sizes with specific focus on the extra-large delete (DEL) and escape (ESC) keys.
Price range varies between configuration but it could reach Php120,000+ with a 3-year warranty. Not really for regular folks like us but more targeted to business and enterprise users (thus the 3-year warranty).
