Lenovo Thinkpad T430u ultrabook launch pushed back to September

Lenovo recently announced that the Thinkpad T430u ultrabook would go on sale this month for $779 and up. But sometime in the last few weeks, the company quietly updated the T430 web page to say “coming in September.”

So if you’ve had your eye on this 14 inch thin and light laptop, it looks like you’ll have to wait a little longer to get your hands on it.

The Thinkpad T430u is aimed at business customers and features a sturdy aluminum case and roll-cage design and Lenovo’s TrackPoint system with both a touchpad and a pointing stick.

Port include 2 USB 3.0 ports, a mini DisplayPort, and HDMI. The laptop features Dolby Home Theater v4 audio.

Lenovo says the laptop will get up to 7 hours of battery life, weighs just over 4 pounds, and measures 0.8 inches thick.

    Maybe they are trying to clear up excess Ideapad inventory,

    Why wait for a well equipped vapourware Thinkpad when there is a full lineup of “LENOVO IDEAPAD” laptops shipping?

    Don’t get that “IDEA” – its better to “THINK” about it and wait for this one.
