Lenovo appears to prepping a new notebook with a 12.5 inch touchscreen display and an Intel Haswell processor. Product manuals and retail documents for an unannounced model called the Lenovo ThinkPad X240s Touch have started popping up.
The new notebook appears to be similar to the upcoming ThinkPad X230S thin and light notebook, but with a touchscreen and 4th-generation Intel Core processor.
While Lenovo is offering full HD display options for some upcoming ThinkPad laptops such as the 14 inch ThinkPad T440S, the new 12.5 inch model seems to pack a 1366 x 768 pixel screen. The rest of the specs aren’t all that exciting either:
- 4GB of RAM
- 320GB, 7200rpm hard drive
- 720p webcam
- 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi
- Bluetooth 4.0
- USB 3.0, Ethernet, D-Sub, mini DisplayPort
- SDXC card reader
- 6 cell battery for up to 6 hours of run time
- 12″ x 8.1″ x 0.77″
- 3 pounds
On the bright side, you do get a couple of business-friendly features including a SIM Card slot, a TrackPoint button in the center of the keyboard, and a case that you can disassemble to replace the storage or other components. It also has a spill-resistant keyboard and a sturdy roll-cage design.
The laptop is expected to be available with Intel Core i5-4200U and Core i7-4500U processor options when it launches in August.
