Some years ago, AIUI Lenovo used this scheme:
- a letter to identify the series,
- a digit for the screen size: "3", "4" or "5" for 13, 14 or 15 inch,
- a digit for the generation,
- a zero.
(There might be finer details I'm not aware of.)
So a T440 would be a T series 14 inch model of the 4th generation, while 
a T520 would be a 15 inch model of the 2nd generation, older.

However, I got the impression they have changed that scheme in the meantime.
