  • Features


    A Smarter Way to Stay in Touch

    The 11.67" ThinkPad T430u Ultrabook is small, and we mean really small. Its compact frame makes it an ideal travel companion whether you're off to another meeting, or another country. At only 2.5 lbs., you can easily carry it by your side or slip it in a purse or daypack - you'll barely know it's there. And with snappy responsiveness, you can flip it open and be checking e-mails, playing games, or browsing the Web in mere moments.

    Not Just Tiny, Stylish Too

    S21e, one of our best new laptops under $300, features a sleek silver finish on its outer casing, alongside a refined black interior. Unlike gimmicky competitor offerings, the S21e is no joke, and it doesn't present itself as such.

    Full Keyboard & Touchpad

    Sometimes you just can't settle for an on-screen keyboard. The S21e gives you a full AccuType keyboard similar to what we offer on much larger devices. And it even features a wide touchpad so you can scroll, point, and click with ease.

    Intelligent Battery Life

    S21e, one of our best laptops under $300, will give you up to 5 hours of productive usage. So you'll get plenty of use from it whether you're between flights, on the road, or just at the coffee shop. And with intelligent battery saving technology built-in, you can increase the amount of time spent between charges.

    Connect to Your Devices Too

    Plug in a mouse, a Flash drive, and more. Two USB ports and a built-in card reader let you connect and store with your external devices. Plus, HDMI output will allow you to stream your screen to a larger display such as a monitor, TV, or projector. Enjoy solo or with others - the S21e has you covered.
