Lenovo has outfitted its newest ThinkPad with Intel's latest processor technology.

Unveiled via a new Lenovo Web page, the T440s is touted as a 14-inch business ultrabook. The new ThinkPad is powered by Intel's fourth-generation processor, commonly known as Haswell.

The screen offers a choice of an HD+ or FHD screen with a resolution of 1,920x1,080 pixels and In-Plane Switching (IPS). The IPS technology ensures that the screen is as viewable from different angles and it is from straight on. The display also comes with multi-touch to take advantage of the included Windows 8 OS.

Near-field communications is part of the package, letting users pair the T440s with other NFC-enabled devices. The array of ports includes a mini DisplayPort, smart card reader, and three USB 3.0 connections. Lenovo also offers two 3-cell batteries, one internal and one hot swappable. A 3-cell battery promises around six hours of life on a single charge.

The T440s starts off at 3.5 pounds and is less than an inch at its thickest point, making it the lightest and thinnest ThinkPad T series unit, according to Lenovo.

No price or release date were revealed, but Lenovo says the new ThinkPad is "coming soon."
