    So, the whole "battery improvements" for the Haswell is just marketing bs, since they're putting (ultra)low voltage cpus anyway... and that's why we are seeing laptops with better screens, with higher resolutions since there is nothing else revolutionary about Haswell platform anyway...

    !? What? The GT 730 is much more powerful than the HD 4400. See the benchmarks: Mobile Grafikkarten - Benchmarkliste - Notebookcheck.com Technik/FAQ

    The HD 4400 has 698 Points in the 3DMark11 P GPU benchmark, the GT 730M has 1777 points. Thats nearly 3x times as powerful (!). And thats just a benchmark. In Games, the 730M is more powerful than the Iris Pro 5100 or the Quadro K1000M.

    Well, if its the sRGB, yes, But if it is the AdobeRGB, than no.

    I don't think it's the same panel though, as the 440s looks like it'll be FHD non-touch or HD+ touch. And the parts list shows:

    04X0436 AUO 14.0"FHD AG
    04X4043 Touch LCD ASM 0C00331
    04X5379 Touch LCD ASM for 0C00331 Victory

    Are those all of the displays?

    Does Lenovo typically include a feature in BIOS to be able to select between the Intel and Nvidia graphics, especially since I don't see an "Intel only" graphics model?

    The T420 (I think) and the T430 (definitely) use Optimus, so the nVidia card is disabled unless the GPU is needed. You can use Windows software to specifically enable or disable the GPU on a per-app basis, or disable it entirely.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I seem to remember a BIOS setting too...

    I need to know about it specifically in the BIOS, as it will be used for Linux, and I don't want to have to mess around with Bumblebee.

    Well, I can't tell you about the T440s, but I'll reboot my T430 and check out the BIOS after my conference call ends (about an hour). I'd assume most Optimus BIOS integrations would be the same, but YMMV.

    Edit - OK, maybe this will be faster -- here are screenshots of the BIOS settings. Looks like it does what you need, at least in the T410s...

    Let me know if you want me to check the bios anyway.

    If you could check, that would be fantastic, just to make sure. No rush.
