    ThinkPad S440Features

    Stylish, Svelte Design. Premium Features

    The S440 shell combines aluminum and magnesium alloy for both durability and lightness. A single unified hinge adds strength, while also enabling 180-degree opening so the Ultrabook lies flat or rests at any angle. Unique attention to detail like indented sides for carrying add convenience and style. Black ports and a sandblast finish top off the design embellishments on the S440, which is available in both Silver and Gunmetal.

    The product is brilliant. A great machine.
    Awful customer service. I was undecided between Apple and Lenovo for my high-specs machine. Lenovo in terms of customer service is the Ryanair of computers. In my case they refuse to take liability for a manufacturing fault (unwelded screen to its casing in bottom right corner). I had to insist to get the phone operator to log the problem I experience, he was refusing on the ground that 'the warranty does not cover hardware'. Ridiculous!

    Lightweight and good battery. Keys are soft to touch.
    Pad - I couldn't use it until my tech guy disabled a lot of functions.
    But worst - I bought this model as it had a touch screen which I needed to use for typing - but you cant really reach it to type, as it doesn't either detach or flip under, so you have to go over the keyboard, and reach the screen. If you design a computer that has a scree keyboard, then you might as well design it so that its of use to the customer.

    Hi Norma,

    Thanks for your Reevoo review, your thoughts are important to us, customer feedback greatly helps to influence the design of Lenovo products.

    We do have a range of laptops which offer a multi-mode screen experience, with a 360 degree hinge, this allows for tablet mode functionality. If this should be of interest for the future, please see http://shop.lenovo.com/gb/en/laptops/lenovo/yoga/.

    Best keyboard you can get on a laptop, solid build quality and doesn't come with too much bloatware/trialware installed
    Trackpad is a bit weird for clicking on, though you get used to it.

  • Ask an Owner

    ThinkPad S440Ask an Owner

    Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the S440

    1. paul asked on
      Is it any good for photoshop cc 2014 photography.
      1. Nick replied on
        It runs photoshop quite well. However, the fan can be quite loud at times. Maybe its cause I got the higher spec model, it must run hotter and need more of a fan, and it can get annoying.

        Also, the touchscreen model isn't worth it. Its okay as a gimmick at first, but I barely use it now. You get a nicer screen on the normal model, so if its photography + photoshop you mainly want it for, I'd go for that.

        However, if you aren't committed to getting a Lenovo, I'd check out the Samsung series 7 or series 9 range (9 is better, but will cost more). Or even better (if price isn't a worry), go for a macbook with a retina screen.
      2. Ricky replied on
        I find that it struggles to run an external HD monitor, which suggests that the graphics engine isn't very high spec.
    2. Kat asked on
      Hi there,

      How do you find the weight on this model. I have a commute and long walk into work and am female.....
      Weird question I know
      1. Russell replied on
        I don't carry mine around, but you will not find it a problem. About the same as a MacBook - not the big one.
    3. A shopper asked on
      HI,

      I wish to buy a Thinkpad S440. Is there any way of increasing the HDD to 1TB? And how about the camera quality when used with skype?

      Thanks
      1. James replied on

        Upgrading to a 1TB should easily be possible, I would check the hardware reference manual available on the lenovo website to check you have the correct tools and skills. Then you should be able to clone your hard drive or do a fresh install. It may void you warranty, I personally have not opened mine yet.

        The camera and sound quality seem good, well as good as your internet connection.
    4. A shopper asked on
      How to you find the trackpad? I curently have a lenovo laptop and find that the trackpad often cuts and becomes unresponsive.
      How is the wifi range?
      1. Nick replied on
        The trackpad is good, once you learn the various commands (1 finger normal click, 2 fingers is right click, etc). Its never cut out and been unresponsive on me.

        I'm not sure about the wifi range, I generally use it in my home, so I'm only ever about 20-30 metres away from the router. It works from my garden though, which might be a bit further.

        One thing I would point out is the noise the fan makes is pretty loud. Even when I'm not doing much on the computer (e.g. just having an internet browser open).
        This might be because I have the more powerful i7 model, and the fan is doing more work than normal because of the more powerful hardware, but its definitely the biggest issue I have with the laptop, and I wouldn't have bought it if I knew this beforehand. I've contacted Lenovo about this, and they weren't very helpful.

        If you are able to, find somewhere that sells these in person, so you can try it and see how noisy the fan can be.
