Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 review
3 August 2013
Conclusion: The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 isn’t without its sacrifices, but with a starting price for a business laptop that starts at less than $550, that’s to be expected. You’ll have to pay extra for solid-state cache or storage. And you’ll have to live without a touchscreen, HD resolution, or backlit keys. And the screen’s color and contrast washes out quickly if you aren’t sitting dead center.
Pros: Excellent spill-resistant keyboard, Low price, Roomy touchpad, Runs fairly cool and quiet, even under load
Cons: Poor quality screen, Short battery life, Doesn’t feel as solidly built as pricier ThinkPads, No niceties like a backlit keyboard or solid-state storage
