Lenovo has unveiled a new thin sensor notebook just in time for the summer holiday season, which usually includes a lot of traveling. Dubbed ThinkPad Edge S431 the new device is just 20.5 mm thick and packs a 14-inch display at 1366 x 768 pixel resolution – not too big to hinder mobility but not too small to take a toll on your eyes.

The rest of the specs include a Gigabit Ethernet adapter, one HDMI port and a USB 3.0 port as well as a backlit keyboard and a touchpad with multitouch capabilities. Finally the entire chassis is covered with special soft touch plastics.
The ThinkPad Edge S431 will be on the market in June. The notebook will run a 64-bit version of Windows 8 right out of the box and in the USA it will cost USD 699.
