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.

Lenovo ThinkPad T430u

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.

The laptop features an Intel Ivy Bridge processor and will be available with up to 8GB of RAM, up to 1TB of hard disk space or a 128GB solid state disk, and optional NVIDIA graphics. It features a 14 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display.

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.

  1. 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.

    1. Oh joy!

      Now its just “Coming Soon”…

      Buy a twist or X1 carbon plebians!

  2. date pushed back again. at this rate, the machine will be obsolete by the time it’s actually available.
