  • Conclusion: Business users looking for a device aimed at travel who require modest performance and don't mind conceding on the display will be well served by the Lenovo ThinkPad T431s. However, users may also want to consider the as an alternative option; the device offers better performance within an even more portable form factor and is currently available on Lenovo's website at a comparable price.
  • Pros: Excellent Build Quality, Portable Design, Long Battery Life, High-Quality Keyboard
  • Cons: Mediocre Performance, Limited Screen Viewing Angles

Lenovo ThinkPad T431s Ultrabook:- Ultraportable laptop offers decent performance but no thrills

Techworld
23 July 2013
  • Summary: 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 justify Lenovo's higher-than-average price.

Lenovo ThinkPad T431s

  • Conclusion: 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 all good. Tradition hasn’t gone with the wind, and the carbon fiber top, magnesium alloy bottom and roll cage are thankfully still here.
  • Pros: A slim and light ThinkPad Ultrabook that's sturdy, upgradable and has Lenovo's usual excellent backlit keyboard.
  • Cons: Display is abysmal: very narrow viewing angles, mediocre contrast and colors.

Lenovo ThinkPad T431s

Digitaltrends
17 May 2013
  • Conclusion: 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 a beveled keyboard. This Ultrabook simply doesn’t look or feel as durable as its predecessors. And that’s a shame.
  • Pros: Professional yet attractive design, Light and portable, Class-leading keyboard, Matte anti-glare display, Above-average battery endurance, Good processor performance
  • Cons: Poor display quality, Finicky touchpad, Slow hard drive, A bit over-priced

Lenovo ThinkPad T431s

LAPTOP Magazine
13 May 2013
  • Summary: The ThinkPad T431s combines relatively long battery life, a high-res screen, a large touchpad, a responsive keyboard and a good low-light webcam and places all of that functionality into a durable chassis that weighs just 3.4 pounds. Unfortunately, narrow viewing angles, slightly high temperatures and mediocre performance hold this notebook back from achieving a higher rating.
  • Pros: Strong battery life, Lightweight design, High-res screen, Comfortable touchpad, Durable chassis
  • Cons: Expensive, Palm rest can get hot, Weak viewing angles, Below-average graphics performance

Lenovo ThinkPad T431s review

itproportal.com
22 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Ultimately, the choice of laptops falls to your IT buyer and the current installed base of systems. If you're a Lenovo shop, the Lenovo ThinkPad T431s is a worthy successor to the ThinkPad faithful, though the new trackpad may take a little while to get used to. The Dell Latitude 6430u has significantly more performance under its hood, so is still our pick over this model, but if your company relies on Lenovo systems, the T431s is a very good workhorse PC for your rank...
  • Pros: USB 3.0 only, ThinkPad design and features are intact, Can be configured with Windows 7 or 8
  • Cons: No flash storage, No touchscreen, Sealed battery

CNET
2 August 2013
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: The Lenovo ThinkPad T431s 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.
  • Cons: If having the latest Intel processors or discrete graphics is important, you'll have to pass.

  • Excerpt: Lenovo's long-standing tradition of producing black, boxy, boring laptops continues with the ThinkPad T431s, and it's a testament to their underlying quality that businesses and business users continue to embrace them. But the company might want to rethink the " Ultrabook " suffix tacked onto this one's name, which conjures images of sleek, sexy, and speedy machines. The T431s is none of those things. See also: Group test: what's the best ultraportable laptop?
