Lenovo ThinkPad T440 Ultrabook

Lenovo ThinkPad T440 Ultrabook
  • This is likely to be my last new PC at work as we are on a 3½ year replacement policy and I will be retired before then.
  • Replaces a very solid T410
  • New one has 4 gig of memory and a half terabyte drive
  • It is quite a bit thinner than the old
  • Sadly I lost two software packages: Paint Shop Pro 7 which is no longer in our catalogue and Google Chrome which now requires special approvals
  • Also new: Keyboard, docking station (I had not been using a docking station for several years as my old docking station died) and mouse


  1. I know that Wells Fargo buys these in bulk doesn't pay anywhere near retail, but retail of $ 724 is a super price for a machine of this caliber

  2. Software: Office 2010, Visio 2010, Project 2007, and IE10. Came with IE8 but IE10 is available from an internal shopping site and I upgraded right away

  3. I'm a pretty big fan of Lenovo's Ultrabooks and convertibles.

    Interesting that WF is sticking with 4Gb of RAM. As of 2014 we spec'd 8Gb as the new standard, mostly because we've noticed in initial testing that Office 2013 has a bit of lag with only 4Gb. We haven't deployed that yet, but with laptops on a 3-year cycle we might before the one we purchase now are gone.
