    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

    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

    The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 isn't without its sacrifices, but with a starting price for a business laptop that starts at less than $550, that's to be expected. You'll have to pay extra for solid-state cache or storage. And you'll have to live without ...
