Lenovo has just announced their latest addition to their notebook stable, the Lenovo ThinkPad S431 which runs on Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system. The Lenovo ThinkPad S431 will be equipped with a multi-finger touchscreen display that will be able to open up to 180-degrees, where it will be accompanied by the likes of a backlit keyboard alongside optimized shortcuts, and of course, something that is extremely essential – a large and responsive touchpad, where all of these were part of the design considerations to make it work as well as possible with Windows 8 as the operating system of choice.
The ThinkPad S431 would sport a 14-inch display that has been fitted into a 13-inch frame. Sounds illogical? Well, that is because it boasts of beveled edges which were specially designed to make the entire shebang look thinner than it actually is. Lenovo claims that the progressive design cues used will assist small businesses to impress their customers, without compromising on power or productivity. Other hardware specifications include 8GB RAM, a 500GB hard drive, and the ability to connect to the ThinkPad OneLink Dock using a single cable. Expect the Lenovo ThinkPad S431 to ship from June 2013 onwards for $699 a pop.
