Lenovo ThinkPad T400s laptop
Inspired by Lenovo’s thinnest and lightest full-function laptop, the featherweight ThinkPad X301, Lenovo engineered its latest laptop, the ThinkPad T400s, to be super-slim at just 0.83 inches thin and ultra-light starting under four pounds. Lenovo added the ability to power on the laptop with just the swipe of a finger on the fingerprint reader. And an always-on USB port keeps MP3 players, cameras and other peripherals charged when the laptop is in standby or hibernate mode. The laptop achieves its skinny frame thanks to the thin 14.1-inch LED screen, solid state drive storage and the second generation Top Cover Roll Cage, which Lenovo first introduced in the ThinkPad X300 laptop. The roll cage’s monocoque carbon reinforced fiber, also used in bicycle frames and airplanes, helps keep the laptop extremely light yet surprisingly sturdy.
With this design the laptop weighs nearly 20 percent less than its ThinkPad T400 predecessor, also making it much thinner and lighter than the Dell E6400 and HP 6930P laptops. The ThinkPad T400s laptop is available for approximately $1,599.
