Summary: This laptop was purchased as our IT support laptop. It was to replace our aging T410. I was reluctant to buy this laptop for two reason, the latest T440 and T540 have got so many bad reviews, and I also have had a bit of bad luck with consumer grade Lenovo Yogas as of lately.
Summary: Exactly what was described. Perfect for a T431S repalcement. Note: Be very very careful detaching and re-attaching the monitor cable. We broke the first one and had to buy that separately ($25 from a local Lenovo dealer).
Summary: I was charged a shipping fee when the computer reached me. Also it was a mess with programs loading so I had to clean it up. Otherwise it's a good computer and a good purchase I just didn't appreciate having to pay extra for shipping when it was included in the purchase price.
Summary: I've used thinkspads almost exclusively in my professional career as a software engineer but this one convinced me to consider alternatives. The overall experience is pretty poor - here are my highlights: * touchpad is unusable in Linux * poor Wifi component (especially compared to my W510) * no...
Summary: After one very frustrating day with this laptop I have given up and returned it. Windows 8 has is useless without a touchscreen. So why is it installed on a laptop with no touchscreen? The "click pad" on this machine is the worst thing I have ever used.
Summary: At this point I've had the Lenovo T431s for 8 months and have not suffered any catastrophic problems. Unfortunately, there are plenty of other issues which prevent me from recommending this particular unit.
Summary: I've owned 6 ThinkPad T-series over the last 10 years, and with each new model have been steadily impressed by Lenovo's ability to first take on the IBM legacy, and later innovate and build on the line without sacrificing quality or a consistent professional experience.
Summary: I've owned at least 10 ThinkPads/Lenovos over the years and consider myself a "fan". However, this is VERY poorly designed/executed laptop. The biggest problems are the keyboard and track pad. The keyboard is flaky and inconsistent, especially the space bar.
Summary: I got this product because I always loved Lenovo's excellent build quality. This laptop is not exception but unfortunately few innovations are really annoying. the biggest problem for me is the multi-functional touch pad which I can't get used to and drives me crazy.
Summary: I just upgraded my laptop to the Lenovo T431s and I'm blown away by the built quality and the performance of this laptop. My old laptop was a Dell that had a Core 2 Duo which would overheat quiet badly but the T431s runs super cool and doesn't overheat at all.
