"I own few Lenovo machines. I wanted to replace an older X220 with this T440 and found out that this 14" is actually larger and it will not fit into the place of x220. There is no indication when using caps (no light nor screen indication). The earphone connection doesn't work either. Probably the best feature of this machine is the battery life. for a practically 15" screen, the resolution could be much better."
"In general the laptop is OK, it is recognizably Thinkpad. However, I liked the feel of the T410 keyboard more and have not actually gotten used to the new keyboard (I have been using the laptop now for around 2 months and I do a lot of typing). Thankfully it still has standard keyboard layout and retains the physical function key row (unlike the abomination of the new X1 Carbon keyboard).
My biggest gripe is (as all the others) with the touchpad. It has no dedicated buttons and the touchpad clicking is too loud and not accurate - oftentimes the mouse cursor moves when I'm clicking. My solution is actually using a external mouse and using the touchpad only when I have no other choice, it is mostly useless and only gets in the way."
"Been using the T440 for almost 2 weeks. Can't hear the fan, the machine is silent, the backlit keyboard is awesome, and the speed has spoiled me. However, the new touchpad is very frustrating. I've owned 7 thinkpads. This is the first time I have had not liked the keyboard. I prefer the buttons by far. I have to use my left hand to "pound" the touch pad to work. sometimes I have to click the touch pad 5-11 times before the program responds. sending it back, and hope it is just a defect. Please bring back the buttons. Much more efficient. Gave my daughter my T520. Wish I had kept it and given her the new one."
"The laptop is quiet amazing in performance and design. I love lenovo not only because of performance but the nice movement of track pad with very less noise. But my T440 laptop's track pad mouse button is loud sound. Moreover entire track pad is pressing down if mouse button is pressed this is making inconvienct with tracking. Because finger on track pad will be slightly moved if entire track pad is pressing down on mouse click (pad). If it is as is keypad then it would be awesome laptop. I had used T430 series which had very good track pad clear seperation between tracking pad and buttons."
