Software and Accessories

Software and accessories? More like "What software and accessories?" Lenovo's ThinkPad T400s Multi-Touch shipped with very little in the box. We found the machine itself, a removable/rechargeable battery, an AC adapter, an AC cable, a few manuals related to the machine and that's it. No case, no fun USB gadgets...nothing else at all. On the software front, Lenovo threw in a 60-day trial of the latest version of Microsoft Office as well as a long list of other apps that you aren't apt to care as much about. In case you do, the full list is posted below.

One of the standout software inclusions here is Lenovo's own Simple Tap UI. This can be toggled by pressing on the red button that can be positioned as you see fit around the LCD's border, or it can be pulled up by double tapping the screen. From here, you can access a number of machine shortcuts or even add a few of your own. You can see how this all works in our video on the next page.

If you’re not familiar with Lenovo’s ThinkVantage Access Connections, it’s a connection manger that helps you set up and manage wireless Internet connections including Wi-Fi and mobile broadband. Lenovo’s Camera Center provides a quick link to download Skype to use with the notebook’s webcam. It also has a link to Roxio Media Import.
