How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Lenovo's business-minded laptop is svelte and portable, but its high price doesn't line up with its unremarkable specs. A main selling point of the T431s is its design, which CNET calls "simple and straightforward," but Laptop Magazine notes that it's "noticeably smaller than the T430s." The T431s has a 14-inch display with a resolution of 1600 x 900, which NotebookReview finds "serviceable for viewing documents," but they also note that the screen "appears rather dull with limited brightness." On the performance front, the T431s has "enough performance for productivity tasks" according to Laptop Magazine, and PC World says its battery life is "about average" for other systems in the same class.
