Lenovo ThinkPad T430u ultrabook coming in August for $779 and up

The Lenovo ThinkPad T430u is an ultrabook aimed at small business users. The 14 inch laptop features a thin and light design, like most consumer-oriented ultrabooks, but it comes with Lenovo business solution software, Lenovo’s TrackPoint system (with a touchpad and a pointing stick), and an all-black, businesss-like case design.

Lenovo will start selling the laptop this month for $779. That’s about $70 lower than the starting price Lenovo mentioned when the company first introduced the laptop in January.

Optional features include NVIDIA graphics, up to 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB solid state disk. The base model will have a hard drive and Intel graphics, though.

The ThinkPad T430u features an Intel Ivy Bridge processor and a 1366 x 768 pixel display. It measures about 0.8 inches thick, and Lenovo says you should be able to get up to 7 hours of battery life from the laptop.

    How does this compare with the T430s?

    Nice price, and I hope since it’s a thinkpad we’ll be able to up the res to 1600×900 as in my opinion 1366x 768 kinda sucks by todays standards.

    I like it. I wonder how the Linux compatibility is.

    Now it says “September” for availability on Lenovo’s website. 1366×768 is lousy resolution for a 14″ display/screen. Hard to find details on resolution on their website too!
