The new T430u - Ultrabook That’s All Business!

Anybody need an ultrabook, with ThinkPad features?


Here´s the new T430u!




The stylish ThinkPad T430u ultrabook borrows some of the elements typically found on premium laptops, such as a matte finish that’s soft to the touch and an aluminum top cover that complement its small - less than 0.8-inches and less than four pound - frame. It also sports ThinkPad’s new modern and minimalist island-style keyboard.


The 14-inch laptop has business-primed features including: 


  • Choices of the latest Intel Core processors and Intel integrated or NVIDIA graphics
  • Choice of SSD storage or up to 1 TB of HD storage
  • Up to six hours of battery life
  • Quick resume and fast boot up
  • Lenovo Solution Center powered by Intel Small Business Advantage, a set of productivity and security tools helping to enable overnight energy savings and automatic patch updates.







I got some questions about this particular model, which I would like to answer here:


Are there any othe display resolution options than HD resolution? No.


Glossy or non-glossy display? Edit: According to the official press information glossy display.

Edit: January the 12th. according to the hands-on video there will be a matte display.


Does it have Thunderbolt? No, but two usb 3.0 ports at the right side.


ThinkPad T430u ultrabook will be available starting in Q3 2012, respectively, through business partners and online at Pricing for models starts at approximately $849.


Best regards
