Lenovo ThinkPad T430u Ultrabook Packs 14″ LCD, Nvidia GPU

Lenovo ThinkPad T430u
This is the Lenovo ThinkPad T430u Ultrabook.

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
Lenovo Solution Center powered by Intel Small Business Advantage, a set of productivity and security tools helping to enable overnight energy savings and automatic patch updates.

  1. i need to say this because i feel this is critical…. if the T430u (as in the image) uses the same concept touch pad design as the likes of the E320 – edge machine – where there are no discrete left/right buttons below the touch pad, then I think this is a huge issue. Just having spent an hour trying to use this style, as opposed to the discrete button design on my t420s – they are worlds apart. In my humble opinion the newer “non-discrete” design is a terrible step backwards.
    But, again – just my opinion.
    In fact if Lenovo adopt this on the T430s as well – then i’ll look elsewhere for my next machine.
