Summary: A must-have. The T440s is currently one of the most sought-after products on the mobile business market. But with so many versions available, it is not exactly easy for a buyer to figure out which model is best suited to his or her individual needs. To follow-up on our review of the basic version, here we have written an update reviewing the top model, equipped with an Intel i7 CPU, FHD IPS display and a fat 9-cell battery.
Pros: Compact case, Good hardware and connectivity options, Good keyboard, Very good display, Very good application performance, Runs quietly, Remains cool under load, Long battery life, This high-end version of the ThinkPad T440s has everything a mobile workhorse ought to have.
Cons: Clickpad takes some getting used to, Limited CPU performance when the graphics load is heavy, Bulky spare battery, The free-standing TrackPoint keys from the predecessor series.
Conclusion: 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. But there’s more to compare the T440s to than itself.
Pros: Great keyboard, Decent 1080p touchscreen, Can run up to 28 hours on optional 6-cell battery
Cons: Some materials feel cheap, Poor audio quality, Frustrating touchpad, Mediocre value
Summary: The ThinkPad T440s is a worthy successor to the ThinkPad T431s. With the performance and power efficiency of Intel's fourth-generation Core series, long battery life, an industry-leading keyboard and an optional full HD touch screen, the ThinkPad T440s is the new business laptop to beat. Those looking for something that's more portable than this 3.8-pound system might want to consider Lenovo's 12.5-inch, 2.8-pound ThinkPad X240.
Lenovo's fresh design work is evident in the ThinkPad T440s, which is a great all-round business notebook

Summary: 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.
Pros: Excellent keyboard, Hot-swappable battery, Solid build quality, Good range of ports, plus dock option
Cons: Touchpad wasn't always usable after waking from sleep, The 1600x900 panel has narrow vertical viewing angles
Обзор Lenovo ThinkPad T440s. Долговечность и автономность обходятся недешево
17 February 2014
Summary: Этот лэптоп – надежная и выносливая рабочая лошадка. Перед его покупкой, стоит определиться, нужна ли вам конфигурация с 6-ячеечным аккумулятором и сенсорным экраном. Первый лишает ThinkPad T440s права называться «ультрабуком»; второй практически бесполезен при наличии клавиатуры, тачпада и трек-пойнта.
Если необходимо работать с графикой, почти за те же деньги можно купить ZBook 14, а если хочется высокой портативности − MacBook Air 13.
Pros: удобная клавиатура;, высокая износостойкость корпуса;, долгое время автономной работы;, возможность «горячей» замены аккумулятора;, качественный дисплей.
Cons: довольно толстый и тяжелый (для ультрабука);, бессмысленный сенсорный экран.
