Lenovo ThinkPad T431s Review

The Lenovo ThinkPad T431S combines a number of ultrabook characteristics as well as traditional ThinkPad design, such as internal roll cage and magnesium construction. Like any T Series laptop, the T431S also excels in build quality, but the reduction in weight and thickness has reduced the rigidity somewhat.

Once again, it’s the same tradeoff between sturdiness and portability, so it’s up to consumers, which way they prefer to go. Again the AccuType keyboard is a terrific feature, which would be appreciated by any office worker and serious typist.

Compared to the T430s, the T431s offers longer battery life and lower surface temperature, which are also big pluses for traveling professionals.  But unfortunately, it has relatively louder system fan and non-removable battery.

The ThinkPad T431s also sports various Ivy Bridge processor and storage options, 320GB 7200rpm, 500GB 7200rpm SATA III and 1TB 5400rpm HDDs. A 4GB DDR3 RAM is soldered permanently on the mainboard and users can add an additional 4GB module to enable the dual-channel RAM configuration. On the front, there is a 14” display with 1600 x 900 screen resolution.
