That's a 3,5" FDD, they were making new computers with them as far back as mid 2000s.

Looking to upgrade my Thinkpad T440s, but Im not sure what to go with. Should I stick to the thinkpads or try something new? Budget is about $400 and hoping to buy used.

Did 3.5" drives even come with the little lever I thought it was an eject button on the 3.5" drive? But I'm also dead certain it's 5.25".

I would stick to thinkpads, and honestly, if you have one of the i7 models it should be fine to just slap in a bit more RAM unless you're already hitting 16GB
Some of the newer thinkpads have some pretty good hardware though, that said, I still run a T61 for portable needs
I did have an HP elitebook for a little while and the thing did a decent job for what it was, the batter didn't live too long however
Check the local small scale mom and pop shops, a lot of the ones here will take used hardware, tune it up and resell it for dirt cheap, if you can't find something better than that T440s you may be better sticking to just that or trying to get a desktop

From what I recall, 5.25s had a lever while 3.5s had the button
I kinda prefer the 3.5s just for the solid disc case in all honesty, not that they're much use now with the size limits, was just a cool format
