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...
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.
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.
Summary: 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 Ultrabook customers.
Pros: 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 large, SIM slot and Smart card options, Fast HDD a...
Cons: Small sacrifice to rigidity due to slimmer chassis, Narrower display bezel for a slightly weaker lid, Louder fan under medium to high loads, No dedicated Nvidia GPU options, Inaccurate colors if not calibrated, Only 2x USB ports, Non-removable battery, A repositioned sd card reader, more rigid di...
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.
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
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.
