The T440s is a business Ultrabook that offers some unique features. The 1920×1080 matt screen with touch is rare, as is the hot-swap battery feature. A 24Wh battery lives in the unit and there’s a selection of 24Wh, 47Wh and 72Wh battery packs that can be added to that. With Haswell and the extended battery you’ve got some very impressive battery life in a 2KG package.

We’ll see if we can get a review of the T440s done for you soon but for the time being, here’s a hands-on overview with a demo of the Thinkpad T440s Ultrabook.

    So they got rid of the UltraBay that can hold either a battery, disc drive or 2.5″ SATA drive and replaced it with an internal non-exchangeable battery? Then they market this as some innovation? Wow, that’s backwards.

    I have an old T420s, with an UltraBay battery I can swap the main battery just like this. I guess I already have this “Power Bridge” technology. What would Lenovo call it when I put in a 2nd SSD or disc drive instead? Drive Bridge?

      They got rid of the ultra bayon the T4x0s line? This Power Bridge thing is definitely a downgrade.

    Do not forget that the ultrabay battery gets drained first… Hopefully this has been fixed though…
    Looking at 430s prices 1700-2100 euros I think or a bit more
