Lenovo has just announced its latest Windows 8 Ultrabook and is targeting it at the small business market. The ThinkPad S531 is a 15.6-inch screen notebook that features a unique single unified hinge that allows it to lie flat at 180 degrees.

The display is not touchscreen, however users will have to interact with the OS using the five button glass pad below the keyboard. Unfortunately the S531 features Intel's third-generation Ivy Bridge processor and no models available with the current generation Haswell CPU line.

It does have USB 3.0 connectivity and available docking system, as well as an optional fingerprint reader. The keyboard is backlit with Windows 8 specific shortcut keys, as well as being spill resistant. This means you will no longer have to panic when accidentally tipping over your morning coffee.
