    Good: Portable OneLink Dock, Good durability, High quality keyboard

    Bad: Weak battery life, Limited Screen Viewing Angles, Bulky Design

    The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 is pragmatics in practice. The practical business-oriented notebook doesn't waste money on high-grade build materials or over-the-top specs. Instead the Edge E431 offers a sturdy plastic chassis design and a capable third-gen...

    Good: Windows 7. Nice price. Removable battery. Good multimedia performance. Sturdy, comfortable keyboard. Dual pointing devices. Fingerprint reader. Function keys work as icons first, F1-F12 second. Matte finish screen. Large multi-touch trackpad.

    Bad: Bottom Line, We recommend small business owners buy a true business PC like the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 rather than trying to repurpose a consumer budget laptop. It will pay off in comfort, performance, and peace of mind

    The E431 has a comfortable keyboard, dual pointing devices, security features like a fingerprint reader, and you can grab one for less than $600. It's our latest Editors' Choice for small business laptops. Design and Features The E431%displayPrice% at %se...

    Good: Reasonable price, Good performance, Comfortable keyboard, Attractive design, Strong sound system, Excellent Webcam

    Bad: Short battery life, Buttonless touch pad, Merely passable display

    of an all-new docking solution Lenovo has dubbed OneLink Dock, which, compared to previous Edge Series docking solutions, provides increased data throughput, as well as compression-free video. As discussed a little later in this review, this new syste...

    Good: Excellent spillresistant keyboard, Low price, Roomy touchpad, Runs fairly cool and quiet, even under load

    Bad: Poor quality screen, Short battery life, Doesn't feel as solidly built as pricier ThinkPads, No niceties like a backlit keyboard or solidstate storage

    When Lenovo bought IBM's personal PC business in 2005, it inherited the company's already well-respected business-centric ThinkPad laptop line. Since then, Lenovo has been fairly conservative about updating the look and design of its business and enterpri...

    Good: Great build quality, ABS plastic construction seems quite durable, Very good keyboard, Stable performance under load, Adequate battery life, Clever proprietary OneLink implementation, Matte display finish, Easy maintenance

    Bad: Dim and unremarkable screen, Questionable integrated touchpad button design, No metal in sight, Heat and noise are slightly higher than the competition, Pricey storage upgrade options

    As such, it's no surprise that much of the ThinkPad Edge E431 resembles that of its predecessor, the E430. But apart from the updates under the hood (such as the latest Ivy Bridge CPUs), there are a few notable hardware differences that render the E431 pr...

    Good: Responsive keyboard; Accurate touchpadpointing stick; Available with Windows 7; Convenient dock

    Bad: Mediocre viewing angles; Subpar battery life with default battery; Slightly heavier than some competitors

    Lenovo's ThinkPad Edge line of affordable small business laptops has long been known for providing a strong combination of value and usability. With a best-in-class keyboard, solid performance, plenty of ports, and optional Windows 7 for those who don't l...

2 Conflict-Free Intel Processor

“Conflict free” and “conflict-free” means “DRC conflict free”, which is defined by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rules to mean products that do not contain conflict minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten and/or gold) that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries. Intel also uses the term "conflict-free" in a broader sense to refer to suppliers, supply chains, smelters and refiners whose sources of conflict minerals do not finance conflict in the DRC or adjoining countries. Intel processors manufactured before January 1, 2013 are not confirmed conflict free. The conflict free designation refers only to product manufactured after that date. For Intel Boxed Processors, the conflict free designation refers to the processor only, not to any additional included accessories, such as heatsinks/coolers.
