Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

Thinking outside the box I say, or dare I say...outside the keyboard. (you can shoot me for that pun if you want, I know it was bad)

Good answer Summilux. :thumbs-UP:

I never said it SHOULD be a Thinkpad.

S431? Close, but no cigar.

Yes...I am quite evil :lol: .
Just an early Halloween post for a little bit of scary Thinkpads!

Obviously, it's a ThinkPad S3 :mrgreen:

If it isn't a S431, it's a S440. Both models were named "S3" in China.

Since it has a clunkpad it must be an xx40 machine.

Good thinking in principle, but there are non-xx40 machines with the clickpad. Namely the T431s, X230s, S431, S531, E431 and E531.

The pictured machine has a single wide bar-hinge with a 14 inch screen – only the S models used this design. Since its apparently not the S431, it has to be the S440.

We have a winner, well mostly. It is an S440 but it was rebadged as the S3 for the China market only. Same model..close enough...Ibthink gets 10 internet points and a gold star :D .

Is this because 'S440' would be a controversial name in CN?

4 = dead (roughly)

So the Clunkpad S-dead-ded-zero wouldnt go down well.

3 is good number in china though.

Yeah this isnt any laptop that many would aspire to here although the T440p is supposed to be a diamond in the rought althought that too has a 'dead dead' name.

I don't have a clue but sound like a legitimate reason.

If Lenovo thought about numbering, why did Lenovo release the TP13 not *.*350
