Lenovo is going backward
Date:April 18, 2014
"As it stated in the title “Lenovo is going backward”. I have been working with Lenovo T and X series almost a decade now and this new T and X lines are the worst of them all. Let’s start with touch pad. It is none responsive to the touch and does not work with left or right click as with the traditional two buttons touch pad. They better off provide you with an external mouse and remove the touch pad. In the past, you could unscrew two screws from the back panel to add additional memories. Now, you have to literally pry the laptop apart with so much force that almost cracks the laptop to install a stick of RAM. They wanted to have a sleek clean look but don’t have the knowledge to implement it."
"When moving from a T510 to this new T440s, there are a few things I had to get used to.
Negative: Smaller screen and smaller text. Price was pretty high because everything is maxed out. The new touch pad is a good large size, but removing the buttons at the top is a step backward. Sometimes when I use the trackpoint the left mouse button on the touch pad doesn't register because my thumb is too close to the middle button area. This can be frustrating. The buttons up top on my t510 were better.
Positive: light weight. Amazing battery life! I love being more mobile, knowing that I have about 17 hours at my disposal. I ordered the fastest i7, 12gb memory, and 512 gb ssd. It is very responsive and fast. Yet it has never heated up. The touch screen is responsive, but windows 8.1 takes a while to get used to. Great keyboard & backlight.
Wish: If they would morph this into a 14 inch yoga type model, it would be an even better laptop/tablet. Overall, I'm satisfied and a happy customer!"
"Lenovo took a perfectly good laptop and ruined it with the integrated track/click pad. I don't know why companies insist on following Apple down this path. It's a huge sacrifice to usability and ergonomics. I would stay away from the T440's and buy a use T430 on eBay. Better value/$ and you get the added benefit of the old (easier to use) click/track pad."
"I am a long-time TP fan so my bias is generally positive. The build quality is great. Sturdy but without lots of weight. I am very happy with my choice. I was not pleased with Windows 8 but 8.1 has helped a lot. Bit of an issues with TrackPoint. I now have it working without going to sleep but it still lags a lot; button pushes are not immediately reflected on-screen. Will continue to look for a better driver."
"This computer was given to me as a healthcare provider to use. I did not personally purchase it so I can not review pricing and promotions. However, the computer is a good size. A little heavy, but I am not sure if they added and extended life battery which may have increased the weight. Keyboard is easy to use. I do not use the touch screen very often as we still use windows 7. The pen takes some getting used to as that is not unusual for any device. Overall great machine. I do not like the matte black on the outside as it always looks dirty and keeps finger prints."
