Excerpt: I've been a long-time ThinkPad user. After 4 years with a T410, I've been anxious to get a new ThinkPad, but I've been put off by the mixed reviews as of late, especially on the keyboard reinvention on many models. I was happy to find the T440s that has the performance and portability I was looking for and the ThinkPad keyboard I'm used to. As the company's write up says, it's a good tradeoff between portability and functionality.
Nice computer but keyboard and clickpad are disappointing
15 October 2014
Summary: Overall a nice computer, lightweight, elegant, good display. However, the keyboard does not live up to the legendary IBM/Lenovo standard - better than most ultrabooks but still disappointing. The keys are a little too stiff, and the clickpad is just weird. The lightweight power supply was a nice surprise, and it charges very fast. Battery life is more than adequate, although I think it might be reducing power to the wifi to achieve it, which gives me spotty connectivity.
Summary: This laptop is excellent in terms of speed, battery, size, appearance, and general performance. However, I have serious issues with the trackpad's design to the point where I exclusively use an external mouse. It's big, loud, and inconsistent. I can only get it to click correctly about half of the time. For the price, this is a major flaw. Lenovo, please bring back physical buttons!
Summary: Laptop is great. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE WARRANTY ISN'T EXACTLY 3 YEARS. The warranty start date is actually the date the reseller purchased the laptop from Lenovo. In my case, about 3-4 months less. Now waiting for Murphy's law to come in ! Had major dilemmas between this and the X1 Carbon new. What tipped the scale was the keyboard layout and set of external ports. Other than that, both have the same hardware specs, including Full HD touch screen.
Summary: The good: screen is beautiful, size & weight are perfect, performance is fantastic, battery life is more than adequate, new matte exterior is nice, and the new hinge design feels strong and reliable. No issues with functionality/drivers in Windows, Mint or Ubuntu. Just a few small issues but SO frustrating: keyboard layout is difficult to adjust to, key action feels cheap, and the lack of caps lock indicator is maddening.
Excerpt: Blazing fast processing, boot in around ten seconds, screen brightness and resulation is good. So easy to fall in love with this laptop, right. But the touchpad is a turn off . It's fast and smooth but it's make a annoying noise when you press it and you have to be very careful when you press buttons as it slips very often .
Excerpt: This is a great business laptop for work purposes. As longtime Thinkpad user it will take a bit of time to get used to the new touchpad design. After 5 days of constant use it still does not feel as convenient as previous one, but it's better than I feared before from the pictures.
Summary: Ich habe mir den T440s zugelegt, da ich nun sehr viel unterwegs bin und auch meine Arbeit von zu Hause erledige. Die Akkulaufzeit reicht mir für das Studium und die Arbeit nebenbei locker für den ganzen Tag. Je nach dem was man mit diesem Notebook erledigt, können auch die angegebenen 9 Stunden erreicht werden. Falls diese Zeit nicht ausreichen sollte kann man auch zur Not ein weiteren Akku während des laufendem Betriebs wechseln.
