Lenovo T400s Touch-Screen

The Lenovo T400s touch-screen shipped on Sept. 15 and weighs 3.91 pounds with the optical drive and is 13.3 by 9.5 by 0.89 inches when used with the six-cell, 5.5-hour battery. The T400s has a 14-inch display and uses either an Intel Core 2 Duo SP9400 (2.4GHz) or SP9600 (2.53GHz) processor.

Finger Taps and Gestures (Before)

Here you see me tapping the screen to see if fingerprints and smudges will mar the display.

Finger Taps and Gestures (After)

The screen remained surprisingly and pleasantly clean, even after tapping and swiping the touch-screen through a busy workday. Neither greasy snacks nor lunch seemed to affect the smear-resistant screen.

SimpleTap

The new SimpleTap application that Lenovo supplies with the T400s touch-screen enables control of various hardware features on the notebook.

Textured Touchpad

Lenovo enlarged the touchpad on this model of the ThinkPad T400s and gave it a slightly textured surface to distinguish it from the flush-mounted bezel.

ThinkVantage Rescue and Recovery is just one of many laptop maintenance and service tools that are included with the T400s and accessed via the tried-and-true "blue button."
