Lenovo announced thinner, lighter additions to its ThinkPad portfolio, including the ThinkPad T440s, T440 and X240 Ultrabook notebooks with 20 percent thinner form factors and up to 45 percent larger trackpads with improved click functionality supporting Windows 8 gestures. Hardware-based biometric fingerprint security and tamper detection are linked to the Trusted Platform Module that keeps data protected, while lightweight carbon fiber materials increase physical protection and contribute to a lighter, thinner Ultrabook. Sharing many of the same features, the T440s and T440 models offer up to 1 terabyte of local storage or high-speed solid-state drives (SSD) and the latest-generation WiFi and optional 4G wireless wide-area network (WWAN) technology. The T440 can include an optional integrated smart card reader for enhanced security. The X240 weighs less than 3 pounds and is 20.3mm thin, designed for business users on the go. It features up to fourth-generation Intel Core i7 processors, up to 1TB of storage and a 12.5-inch Full-HD display option with touch. Lenovo also debuted two notebooks in its S-series line, including the ThinkPad S440 and S540, featuring the fourth-generation Intel Core processors, up to Full-HD anti-glare touch displays and discrete graphics.
