Lenovo ThinkPad T431s Review

 

The T431s successfully blends productivity and portability. However, it's not perfect, and the price is a bit too high.

Lenovo’s new design makes a lot of changes, and change doesn’t usually come without compromise – and even, at times, sacrifice. Lenovo put to rest some of the traits that longtime fans consider crucial to the brand, such as tactile touchpad buttons and...

Lenovo's ThinkPad T431s is all business, and looks good doing it

 

This T-series update is worth considering if you need a thin-and-light business notebook your IT department will like and you won't mind using, either.

The ; is a simple, straightforward business laptop that is built tough, has ample security options, and is thin and light enough for daily commuting. It also has an excellent keyboard and works well with Windows 8.

If having the latest Intel processors or discrete graphics is important, you'll have to pass.

A buttoned-down T-series with some modern touches, the Lenovo ThinkPad T431s is a business laptop you won't mind traveling with unless you need the latest and greatest components.

Lenovo ThinkPad T431s review

 

Lenovo's ThinkPad T431s is a comfortable mix of old and new. Like past T-series laptops, it is first and foremost built for business and the wear and tear of daily use -- on and away from a desk. But, thanks to some careful tweaking, it's not stodgy...

Lenovo ThinkPad T431s review: A high-priced Ultrabook without the high-end specs

 

Lenovo's pricey new entry in the Ultrabook market caters deftly to business users, but it fails to deliver most of what's good about Ultrabooks: speed, portability, and convenience.

Outstanding backlit keyboard ; Fingerprint reader ; Lots of ports

Dull, uninspired design ; Fairly heavy and bulky ; No touchscreen

Lenovo ThinkPad T431s

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad T431s is a solid business laptop, and users should have no problem adapting to it from previous T-series ThinkPads.

USB 3.0 only. ThinkPad design and features remain intact. Can be configured with Windows 7 or 8. Dual pointing devices. Ruggedized construction

No flash storage. No touch screen. Sealed battery. Screen limited to 1,600-by-900 resolution.

COMPARISON TABLE Compare the Lenovo ThinkPad T431s with several other laptops side by side.

Lenovo ThinkPad T431s Review

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad T431s trims the fat to offer an incredibly portable form factor with middling specs. Keep reading to see what is good and bad about this laptop.

Excellent Build Quality ; Portable Design ; Long Battery Life ; High-Quality Keyboard

Mediocre Performance ; Limited Screen Viewing Angles ; The T431s values form over function; offering a great portable design, but with subpar specs for its high-end price point.

Notebookcheck's Best of April 2013 ? Smartphones and Tablets

 

Chief and Indians. In April, we reviewed a lot of smartphones and tablets - more than ever before. The HTC One from the Taiwanese company clearly stands out from the huge crowd of mid-range models. The pre-series Sony Xperia Tablet Z is an interesting...

Of all the things to miss, HTC misses a bug with the camera application. We would also like to list the speakers once more. A ghetto blaster for the pocket

Review Lenovo ThinkPad T431s Ultrabook

 

A reimagined T Series. It is the thinnest and lightest ThinkPad T Series model to date, but does it retain the rigidity and longevity of its predecessors? Lenovo is betting big on a new slimmer design and revamped touchpad to attract the attention of...

Internal roll cage, magnesium alloy base and carbon fiber lid, Dual video-out and docking port, Improved AccuType keyboard with greater feedback, Higher contrast and brightness compared to T430 and T430s, New glass trackpad is responsive and very...

Lenovo ThinkPad T431s

 

A slim and light ThinkPad Ultrabook that's sturdy, upgradable and has Lenovo's usual excellent backlit keyboard

Display is abysmal: very narrow viewing angles, mediocre contrast and colors

We love the new, slim look that Lenovo introduced with the ThinkPad T431s. For those who appreciate ThinkPads, this is a great looking, much more modern machine. From the thinner design to the drop down hinges and 180 degrees of display rotation, it’s...

Lenovo ThinkPad T431s review

 

Rather, it has the heft and bulk of a more traditional laptop, weighing 1.63kg and measuring 20mm thick. One suspects Lenovo could have squeezed in an optical drive, though at least the system leverages its large chassis to pack in plenty of expansion...

As Ultrabooks go, the ThinkPad T431s is far from the skinniest, lightest, fastest, or longest-lasting model you can buy. And without perks like a touchscreen and solid-state storage (the latter is available on other configurations), it's hard to...
