While I can understand the need and desire for a light laptop. For me the priority is performance and as much ram as I can stuff in it. All these so called ultabooks are pretty much configured the same:pianowizard wrote:As I have said numerous times, FHD is perfect for 14.* inch screens, and I was really excited about this T440s, until I saw the weight: "starting at 3.6 lbs". Sigh, my next laptop is still going to be the Sony Vaio Pro 13.
[*]4GB Ram soldered to the board no upgrade at all - I need a minimum of 16G
[*]Non removable battery - Again I want to beable to swap the battery out.
[*]Low performace CPU's generally under 2Ghz - While that is fine for most folks and for most tasks It just will not cut it for what I need.
This T440s like the T430s before it is a comprimise between performace and portability. If you need the performance, upgradable memory, ultrabay for more HD space. then the T4xxs seriese is really the only option on the market right now worth considering.
Whith the reported upgrades to the line:
[*]Hot swappable battery - Man that would be great!!!
[*]FHD dispaly and even IPS maybe...
They have a killer system on there hands with no one else even coming close for the person that needs those features. And lets be honest there are allot of people that need a system that is beefer than what the current ultabooks can deliver.
