The Lenovo ThinkPad T440p 20AN-006VGE is one of the latest offerings for business users. With the premium price tag, one would expect this top of the line machine from Lenovo to offer some premium specs as well. Weighing in at 2.2 kg, this 14 inch device should provide a nice balance between portable and a comfortable work horse. The connectivity includes 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit LAN, a mini display port, and an SDXC card reader. There is also a VGA port, along with the usual audio jack. For those with security concerns, the fingerprint reader, and Intel Anti Theft and Computrace services are provided options. Options of screen resolution range from a TN 1366x768 pixels to Full HD IPS.
The range of processors should also suit most users’ needs, with the top of the line mobile processor - Intel Core i7-4700MQ quad-core - available along with slower processors. Using the Nvidia Optimus technology, the Intel HD Graphics 4600 runs for power saving and Nvidia's GT 730M runs more demanding graphic tasks. For those who also want to use this machine for their gaming needs, this machine can only run demanding games at low to medium settings, which may not be ideal. With a large 100 Wh battery, this laptop could easily last a full workday, or with power saving measures, about 15 hours. To sum up, the customizability of this small yet powerful device should attract many business users who are followers of the Lenovo brand of business machines.
NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M:
Rebranded GeForce GT 645M/640M with minimal improvements to power consumption. Can also be based on the slower GK208 chip (only 64 bit memory interface).
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
4700MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
