G, UK Business user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Mostly lives up to the thinkpad build quality
Bad points:
The tactile push to click on the trackpad is horrible, it feels loose, flappy and unrefined. It is the worst feature and also entirely unnecessary.

Larger trackpad gets in the way when typing

Would prefer proper tactile buttons rather than thier integration into the touch pad and horrendous click action on the touchpad.

I will not be buying another thinkpad until the sort tge touchpad out.

Andrei, London Computer scienses student

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
+ Perfomance is good.
+ The laptop is quite fast and very quiet so far, after using it nearly one month.
+ Keyboard quality looks good as well, which is very important for me.

I am using this laptop with Linux Ubuntu. It works well so far, no problem. Was able to install OpenSuse in Secure Boot and UEFI mode as well.
However, failed to install Fedora Linux.
Bad points:
- Bad quality full HD monitor. Viewing angles are horrible for 21st century laptop.
- Trackpad is horrible. However, normally I use mouse, when working with laptop, so this one doesn't bother me much. Lenovo should include some Fn+ key combination to switch off the trackpad quickly when needed.
- Fn and Control keys are misplaced. Simply unbelievable.
- Missing basic LED indicators such as Caps Lock, Num Lock, HDD activity. Absolutely stupid decision to remove them.
- Would be nice to have an opportunity to switch off Wi-Fi physically, especially for professional laptop.

Laptop Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Lenovo 15.6-inch ThinkPad T440 Notebook is the thinnest and lightest ThinkPad T series laptop we offer. 4th generation Intel Core processors deliver the performance to increase productivity for your business. Devices turn on in an instant and are always up-to-date. You can multitask quickly and move effortlessly between applications, collaborate wirelessly in a high quality videoconference – all with the convenience of longer battery life. Plus, you can guard against identity theft and ensure safe access to your network with built-in security features.

In fact, the only thing more amazing than an Intel Core processor-based PC is what your users will do with it. The powerful HD, FHD and 3K IPS (2880 X 1620 pixels) display options deliver bright, crisp visuals and a wide viewing range. Anti-glare technology makes the screen comfortable to look at even over the long haul. Connecting to 4G and 3G wireless networks is simple with a pre-installed SIM card and the easy-to-use Lenovo Access Connection tool. With the NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M graphics processor, you are assured of a richer visual and faster gaming experience. You can also preview/create HD video up to 4x faster and perfect/share photos in less than half the time.

The T540p meets eight US military-spec tests for ruggedness, durability, and quality: high pressure, humidity, vibration, high temperature, temperature shock, low pressure (15,000 ft), low temperature, and dust. In addition, innovative roll-cage technology, a carbon fiber top and a light-weight magnesium bottom add extra strength and rigidity. Store up to 1TB of data locally and transfer data ten times faster with two USB 3.0 ports. Dolby Advanced Audio v2. A VGA port for projector connections in conference rooms is still a business must-have, and a native VGA means no dongles to buy/lose/replace.
