Unveiled via a new Lenovo web page, the T440s is touted as a 14-inch business ultrabook. The new ThinkPad is powered by Intel's fourth-generation processor, commonly known as Haswell.
The screen offers a choice of an HD+ or FHD screen with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels and in-plane switching (IPS). The IPS technology ensures that the screen is as viewable from different angles as it is from straight on. The display also comes with multi-touch to take advantage of the included Windows 8 OS.
Near-field communications (NFC) is part of the package, letting users pair the T440s with other NFC-enabled devices. The array of ports includes a mini DisplayPort, smart card reader and three USB 3.0 connections. Lenovo also offers two three-cell batteries, one internal and one hot swappable. A three-cell battery promises around six hours of life on a single charge.
The T440s starts off at around 1.6kg, and is less than 25mm at its thickest point, making it the lightest and thinnest ThinkPad T series unit, according to Lenovo.
No price or release date were revealed, but Lenovo said the new ThinkPad is "coming soon".
