For some reason, I have never liked a Lenovo ThinkPad laptop, and that stands even today, while we are looking at the all new Lenovo ThinkPad T431s Ultrabook. The main for this is that the design, or the look of the laptop just turns me off. Today we have laptops which are very, very thin, and shiny, and glossy, and awesome looking. I do not like the display being glossy, but at least body can be. The Think Pad series of laptops are just very ugly, and probably have been ever since the very first model.
And after almost one year and six months of working, the company, Lenovo, has come out with a new model of the laptop, which is the Think Pad T431s Ultrabook. The company seems to have lost a lot of hardware stuff on this one, when compared to older ThinkPad models, and you would observe that the two mouse click buttons are also gone.
The company says that it has worked with Synaptics for two years to perfect the trackpad drivers, which are therefore supposed to be really good on this model. And trackpad drivers are very important, at least for me, because I usually keep my laptop on my lap, which is rare in today’s IT world, and I will not have space on my lap for an external mouse.
Also, you will notice that the bezel around the screen is very thin, and this is said to be the thinnest bezel on any T-series laptop from the company ever. The 14 inch model of the laptop will come with a 1,600 x 900 pixel matte display, Intel Core i5 processor at 2.7 GHz, Intel HD graphics, 4 GB RAM, 320 GB HDD, Windows 7 or 8. And if this is not enough for you, you can go for an Intel Core i7 model with 12 GB of RAM and an SDD. Other special features include two USB 3.0 ports and a backlit keyboard.
