Modernized classic. This year, with the ThinkPad T440s models, Lenovo takes on the legacy of the highly acclaimed T series and does not limit it to just updating the components. It is to be the ultimate in performance and to bring a range of practical updates. We have tested whether this is really the case.

Make no mistake: The ThinkPad T440s offers the experience you expect from a Lenovo laptop. The typing and tracking experience on this ultrabook is bar none, and you'll have a hard time wearing the machine down with general business-oriented tasks. In that regard, this is a work horse that would serve you well. While I would love to recommend the T440s, it's difficult to do so at this configuration. If lasting power from a Windows business laptop is key for you, then lose the touchscreen at checkout. Otherwise, look elsewhere (like the paragraph above) for more focused machines.

Lenovo ThinkPad T440s Ultrabook Review: The Ultimate Business Ultraportable?
Source: PC Perspective English
With the T440s, Lenovo has sent a clear message that this machine is about portability first, power second. Its low-voltage chipset, limited RAM expandability, and hyper-conservative thermal management (which provokes throttling under even moderate GPU load) precludes any possibility of the machine being leveraged for GPU-related work in any way. That’s not to take anything away from its speed; with high scores in PCMark 7 and subjectively snappy performance, the T440s is a winner in general usage. And the GPU-induced throttling is only a problem when GPU load is underfoot—meaning you can fully tax the ULV CPU to full Turbo Boost frequencies without any performance sacrifice. But for those hoping for a Haswell-powered refresh of the thin-and-light, full voltage, sub-four-pound powerhouses that were the T430s and the X230, the T440s’ philosophical shift surely comes as a bit of a disappointment.

It can be hard to get juiced up over a business-ish ThinkPad that looks an awful lot like ThinkPads of times past, but Lenovo did a good job of maintaining the series’ classic looks without bowing to them. The company completely redesigned the touchpad area, and it’s a much smoother-looking and cleaner user experience.

Lenovo has been making business laptops for several years, but in the world of PC manufacturers, the only way to stay relevant is to stay current, and Lenovo does this with the Lenovo Thinkpad T440s. The Lenovo ThinkPad T440s is a very well-made business ultrabook, but even great battery life, decent performance, and a few unique features aren't enough to make it stand out above the rest.

The Lenovo ThinkPad T440s offers solid performance and a design that will look good in the board room while still surviving the occasional cross-country business trip. While the performance is a bit average, it's a testament to the progress made in the Ultrabook category that such impressive performance has become standard. And though the battery life (with the standard battery) is on on par with the competition, the addition of an extended life battery and the hot-swap capability definitely adds an element of flexibility not offered by other systems. It's not quite enough to dislodge the Dell Latitude 6430u as our business ultrabook Editors' Choice.

Lenovo T440s Review
Source: Slashgear English
The ThinkPad T440s might disappoint you if you're in the market for a very thin, sleek ultrabook, as this model is neither of those things. It is a black-colored, no-nonsense ultrabook with a bit of heft behind it and the durability necessary to handle some pretty rigorous usage. The notebook doesn't stand out too much among other comparable Lenovo laptops, such as the aforementioned X240, but it does stand out among nearly all laptops in terms of battery life.

90% Lenovo ThinkPad T440S Review: Best in Business
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Lenovo ThinkPad T440s propels the popular enterprise line in the right direction. The transition to Intel's fourth-generation CPUs along with the interchangeable batteries offer outstanding battery life, while the boost in specs provide even better performance. The IPS touch-screen is the biggest improvement offering a level of clarity and contrast that was missing from the T series. While all of these changes are great, it does make the affordable Lenovo T series, not that affordable. At $1,750 the notebook certainly isn't cheap. As a personal device, users may want to consider slimmer sleeker options like the Samsung Series 9 Plus or the Acer Asprie S7. However, as an enterprise device, the Lenovo ThinkPad T440s is tough to beat.

There’s no doubt that the T440s represents a new direction for the ThinkPad line, but whether it’s a better direction is harder to say. In some areas, such as size, weight and display quality, this new ThinkPad is clearly superior to its older siblings. Other aspects, such as the touchpad and material quality, are a step back.

A great keyboard, strong physical design, plenty of useful connectivity, and a hot-swappable battery, all make the ThinkPad T440s a top contender as far as business laptops are concerned. We think it's a wonderful overall notebook except for some touchpad issues that we experienced. If you're considering it, we recommend getting the version with the Full HD, IPS screen.

Lenovo made the right decision in keeping some of the features that make this line of business laptops a popular choice for many professionals. And to advance the T440s further into a positive direction, Lenovo added the boost in processing performance and the interchangeable battery feature as well.

The ThinkPad T440s is the slim 14" business portable to beat. Lenovo calls it an Ultrabook, which might be stretching what you think of as an Ultrabook, but it meets Intel's criteria for that name (Intel invented the marketing term "Ultrabook"). No, it's not quite as sexy (in a Lenovo sort of way) as the X1 Carbon, but for those who want more keyboard travel, the Power Bridge battery system and more ports, not to mention upgradable RAM and HDD, the ThinkPad T440s is hard to beat.

Comment

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i5:

4200U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

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.  

4600U:

A Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 2.1 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

1.56 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

1.6 kg:


75.67%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
