Lenovo ThinkPad T430u is a 0.8″ thin ultrabook with Intel Core processors, most likely Ivy Bridge. At 14″, it has a larger screen than other ultrabooks, but also adds features such as optional dedicated graphics. Expected availability is Q3 2012 and the base price tag will be $849+.
Lenovo’s first business ultrabook, the ThinkPad T430u, equips business users with the same thin and light designs found in consumer ultrabooks without sacrificing business-class performance, and it comes at a mainstream price starting at $849.
The stylish ThinkPad T430u ultrabook borrows some of the elements typically found on premium laptops, such as a matte finish that’s soft to the touch and an aluminum top cover that complement its small – less than 0.8-inches and less than four pound – frame. It also sports ThinkPad’s new modern and minimalist island-style keyboard.
The 14-inch laptop has business-primed features including:
Choices of the latest Intel Core processors and Intel integrated or NVIDIA graphics
Choice of SSD storage or up to 1 TB of HD storage
Up to six hours of battery life
Quick resume and fast boot up
