ThinkPad T431s Laptop Review

PCWorld has a laptop review on Lenovo’s Thinkpad T431s that’s quite interesting. Instead of the typical glowing remarks that most of us are used to seeing, the review instead highlights several lacking design features. Give the article a read and see if the comments made are significant enough to sway your decision away from this laptop.

As Ultrabooks go, the ThinkPad T431s is far from the skinniest, lightest, fastest, or longest-lasting model you can buy. And without perks like a touchscreen and solid-state storage (the latter is available on other configurations), it’s hard to justify Lenovo’s higher-than-average price. Business users might continue to appreciate the ThinkPad’s sturdy design, security features, and comfy keyboard, but others will find more features and better performance for less money.

Sony VAIO Duo 13 Review

The VAIO Duo 13 has a unique design and definitely caters to a unique type of user. Those looking for a convertible ultrabook with a digitizer stylus should consider the VAIO Duo 13. Not many other convertible ultrabooks come with this feature.

The Sony VAIO Duo 13 is a compelling choice for anyone looking to join the hybrid ultrabook movement. It’s improved slider design and terrific battery life make this 13 inch hybrid a much better choice than it s predecessor, the Duo 11, and you get a larger screen without added weight.

ThinkPad Edge 431 Laptop

Lenovo’s ThinkPad Edge has often been considered a great value buy for business professionals. This laptop provides solid performance and it has a starting price of less than $500. A new Edge model is out in the E431. Overall this laptop seems to continue on the tradition of the ThinkPad brand. One drawback might be that it’s still running a Sandy Bridge processor.

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 like Windows 8, the 14-inch ThinkPad E431 ($649 as configured, $499 to start), is a great choice for knowledge workers, students or anyone who needs portable productivity on a budget.

Sony Improves the VAIO Duo The Second Time Around

PCMag has a product review on Sony’s VAIO Duo 13, a second generation and attempt at designing an ultrabook convertible. For those that aren’t familiar with the VAIO Duo product line, the computing solutions found in this collection feature Windows 8 devices that employ a Sony Surf Slider mechanism. The design essentially has a touchscreen display slide out and up while revealing a keyboard. The VAIO Duo operates as a slate tablet or an ultrabook.

With the Sony VAIO Duo 13, Sony improves upon the design of its predecessor, the Sony VAIO Duo 11 (D11213CX). This model offers a larger screen and a smaller hinge, and it’s outfitted with a fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor. The biggest improvement has to do with battery life; it managed over eight hours on our battery rundown test.

ThinkPad T440s Laptops on Their Way

A handful of tech blogs are reporting that a new ThinkPad T Series laptop is on the horizon. Not many have the complete low-down on this new system, but what’s known and probably what’s most important to most is that it’ll be running on Intel’s 4th generation Haswell processors. It’s unbelievable that there are still a handful of computer manufacturers that are putting out Sandy Bridge systems when Haswell has been out for a couple of months now.

One thing a bit different with the T440s is that it will come standard with two 3-cell batteries, including one that’s swappable without requiring the user to power down the system while replacing the other one. That’s a handy extra for business travelers needing as much battery life as possible while on the road.
