  • Abstract:  Starting at $1599, the Lenovo ThinkPad T400s can be a compelling little laptop. Of course, once you start adding all the bells and whistles, the price kicks up significantly (our model, as reviewed, sells for $2130). Still, thanks to..

  • Abstract:  Lenovo ThinkPad T series are most people’s favorite laptops as they are in good performance as well as good commercial choices. The 14 inches laptops with 2.4kg or so are a little heavier to us, so when Lenovo ThinkPad T400s with 1.8kg released, many T...

  • Abstract:  When open the Lenovo ThinkPad T400s laptop, there is no much changes between the layout of ThinkPad T400s and ThinkPad T400. The location of the speakers, palmrest, fingerprint and the drive are all same. As the ThinkPad T400s comes with a 6-cell batte...

  • Expensive multitouch feature.
  • The Lenovo ThinkPad T400s is one of the first Windows 7 notebooks to have a multi touch display, and it’s fast at running most productivity applications. It has the signature ThinkPad look and solid build, a great keyboard and a good camera for web...

  • Abstract:  Lenovos T400s touch-screen model is as solid a laptop as the non-touch-enabled T400s, but a dearth of touch-enabled apps as well as a premium for the touch-screen make the system less than compelling at this time. However, in eWEEK Labs tests, the sy...
