The ThinkPad T440s has the same chassis as the ThinkPad T431s, which launched in spring 2013, and carries the same design language as other ThinkPads. You’ll find a smooth, raven black casing that features a carbon fiber lid and magnesium chassis. Like the T431s, the T440s has a rather plain matte black lid instead of the luxurious soft-touch, rubberized lids Lenovo used on the older ThinkPad T430s and T420s. A ThinkPad logo on the lid provides a splash of color with a red light in the letter “I” that blinks when the system is asleep. The famous red TrackPoint and a couple of red lines on the touchpad add accents to the deck.
Like other ThinkPad T Series, the T440s is built to take some punishment. An integrated roll cage helps the laptop survive drops and dings while solid hinges allow the screen to bend back 180 degrees, and a spill-resistant keyboard prevents a little water from destroying your system. Lenovo says that the T440s has passed several military standard, or MIL-SPEC, tests, including those for humidity, dust, extreme temperatures and vibrations.
