Lenovo's super lightweight ThinkPad T430u will not only be the first ThinkPad Ultrabook, but the first ThinkPad to sport an Ivy Bridge-based CPU as well. The T430u's most interesting feature is its removable bottom panel that gives users access to the notebook's RAM and hard drive or SSD for easy upgrades.
And for discerning keyboard enthusiasts out there, the 14-inch 3.9-pound T430u will come with the same luxurious keys found on the ThinkPad X1. With a starting price of $849, the ThinkPad T430u looks like a steal for business users in need of powerful and classy notebook. Unfortunately, you may have to wait a bit longer to get your hands on one of these bad boys. Originally scheduled for release in Q3 of 2012, the delay in Ivy Bridge chips could push that back to Q4.
