Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 Review (Video)

 

With solid specs and a sturdy design the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 is ideal for users looking for the basics without spending too much.

Portable OneLink Dock ; Good durability ; High quality keyboard

Weak battery life ; Limited Screen Viewing Angles ; Bulky Design

The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 provides an impressive offering for its price. Starting at $500 (NBR’s configuration was priced at $648) users will receive a durable attractive chassis, with excellent usability thanks to Lenovo’s high quality keyboard...

Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 Review

 

The ThinkPad Edge E431 offers the durability and dependability we've come to expect from Lenovo's small business laptops, in a 14-inch system with an excellent keyboard and pointing stick.

Responsive keyboard; Accurate touchpad/pointing stick; Available with Windows 7; Convenient dock

Mediocre viewing angles; Sub-par battery life (with default battery); Slightly heavier than some competitors

The ThinkPad Edge E431 offers the durability and dependability we've come to expect from Lenovo's small business laptops, in a 14-inch system with an excellent keyboard and pointing stick.

Reasonable price, Good performance, Comfortable keyboard, Attractive design, Strong sound system, Excellent Webcam

Short battery life, Buttonless touch pad, Merely passable display

We were somewhat uninspired by last year's Edge models. Their subpar screens, speakers, and Webcams dissuaded us from giving them a wholehearted thumbs-up. After all, as we pointed out last year in our review of the E530, not just consumers use their...

not happy with Lenovo

 

I was advised by someone else to purchase Lenovo Thinkpad laptops and I will never buy one again. If you decide to purchase one, you better get the longest extended warranty available or better yet, choose a different laptop maker. We have had to wipe...

horrible when it doesn't

Rugged business laptop, poor out-of-box performance

 

Great all-around laptop, but get the 4 or 8gb version, and be sure to cut out all the annoying bloatware.

Durable, rugged, compact design. Looks pretty sleek. Definitely fulfills the requirements for a business machine

Out-of-box performance was embarrassingly inferior. Loaded to the hilt with bloatware. Even after removing all of the bloatware and cutting down to the minimum required startup services and programs, it was still a dog. The culprit, as it turns out, is...

back lit key board and CAP indicator led would be a plus ; increase to 8G ram , SSD and 1080 screen would be perfect

Great Notebook

 

Great Notebook, upgrade the OS and the RAM and you have a nice smaller form factor notebook that's hard to beat.

i5 Chip is zippy ; SSD ; HDMI and VGA connectors ; Touch Screen works well

Non Pro/enterprise OS ; no wireless AC ; only 4GB of RAM = lame
