Lenovo to Launch ThinkPad T430u Ultrabook This Month Starting at $779

Paul Lilly

Lenovo's been enjoying a fair amount of time sitting the limelight as it celebrates the ThinkPad brand's 20th anniversary. Most of the attention has been split between the OEM's ThinkPad Tablet 2 with Windows 8 and ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook, but nearly slipping under the radar is the company's ThinkPad T430u "ultraportable," which is by all means an Ultrabook aimed at the business crowd.

The ThinkPad T430u was first introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year and slated to launch in the third quarter. Making good on that promise, Lenovo will begin selling the business-centric Ultrabook later this month starting at $779 rather than $849 as previously planned, The Verge reports .

As a refresher, specs include a 13-inch display with a 1366x768 resolution, Intel Core ULV processor with Intel HD graphics (discrete Nvidia GeForce GT 620M GPU will be available), 1TB hard drive or 128GB solid state drive, up to 8GB of RAM, and a spattering of ports including USB 3.0.

In terms of size, the T430u has a 0.83-inch waistline and weighs 4.08 pounds. That's a little heavier compared to other 13-inch Ultrabooks, though it also carries a lighter price tag than most.
