Until today, all we had were rumors about what was inside the T400s. Lenovo today confirmed that the super-thin laptop would pack either a 2.4 GHz or a 2.53 GHz Core 2 Duo, a 128 GB SSD or a 250 GB HDD, a 9.5 mm slim DVD burner or Blu-ray player, Ethernet, WiFi, optional WiMAX / WWAN / Bluetooth / ultra-wideband, a 34mm ExpressCard slot (or 5-in-1 card reader), VGA / DisplayPort outputs and nearly six hours of battery life.
The company has also released three docking stations for users of the super-slim laptop in the form of the ThinkPad Port Replicator Series 3, the ThinkPad Mini-Dock Series 3 and the ThinkPad Mini Dock Plus 3 all of include a range of multi-monitor support as well meeting your USB, Display Port and eSATA needs.
Pricing starts at in or around $1,599, depending on the configurations you choose with the computer, and is available in the U.S. immediately. If you missed the videos of the laptop getting run over by a truck or being left out to withstand the horrors of a tornado, check out the videos below.
We’re guessing not too many of you would be willing to drop nearly $1,600 on a laptop just to run over it with a DOW truck but who knows, maybe there’s a spent thrifty reader willing to prove us wrong.
they should put one of the new DX11 cards in there when they come out
On the other hand...
I'm pretty sure it's not used for gaming (that's right, not even crysis), rather more for business, travelling. This machine is a tough beast!
The Thinkpad T400s have been out for a while now. Heck, I'm on a T500!
I'm guessing this is a newer version or something? Would be nice to have some clarification in the naming scheme.
But the T400S (Theres an S in there) I gather for "Slim" is a thinner version of the T400, but not as expensive or thin as the X300.
Or which computer is on top. That, the MacBook would be a ThinkPad's bitch. It's a black thing.
Thing is, the ThinkPad W has optional Wacom pad built-in or a 2nd LCD monitor, optional Quad Core CPU. It's there to get-her-done.
