World's second biggest PC maker, Lenovo, unveiled the ThinkPad T431s on Sunday. The new laptop is the sleekest addition to the ThinkPad T series.
Lenovo said that it made 26 visual design changes to the new laptop based on an ambitious research by getting feedback from Lenovo, non-Lenovo consumers and young adults across India, China, USA, Japan, Germany, France, Italy, Brazil and Mexico.
The company also claimed that the process of refinement, designing and testing of the device took nine months to finally apply the changes.
The new ThinkPad T431s now comes with a simplified keyboard and new trackpad. The laptop now comes with five track point buttons in a neat glass touchpad and keyboard with six row island-style types. Lenovo has also introduced Fn (function) lock with LED indicator and minor changes.
The new laptop is reported will hit US markets initially in April with prices starting from ₹949, but there is mention of when it will debut in India.
