Lenovo ThinkPad T430u ultra-thin laptop to arrive later this month
Lenovo’s ThinkPad business unit is reportedly celebrating 20 years of innovation. To mark this occasion, during an event at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the company has officially launched the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook, the ThinkPad T430u laptop and the ThinkPad Tablet 2. First displayed at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the thin and light T430u model will apparently become commercially available later this month (August) and will have a starting price of $779.
Just to jog your memory, the ThinkPad T430u is aimed at business users on-the-go and comes equipped with a 14.0-inch 200-nit display of HD native resolution (1366-by-768 pixels) and a choice of third generation, ultra-low voltage Intel Core i central processing units. Furthermore, the 0.83-inch thick portable PC features both the integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics controller and the discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M GPU (based on the Fermi architecture) with 1GB of dedicated DDR3 VRAM.
Other specs of the 4.08lbs ultraportable notebook include up to 8GB of 1600MHz RAM, an HDD with a storage capacity of up to 1TB and/or a 128GB SSD, two USB 3.0 ports, Wi-Fi and 3G radios, Mini DisplayPort, an HDMI interface and a built-in 720p web camera with face-tracking technology.
