Review 2 for ThinkPad T431s
very good but a little bit expensive
Date:May 5, 2014
"Have been using it for nearly six months, I am still impressed by its light weight and good performance. The material it uses makes it lighter and thinner, however, also make it not that sturdy as a cost. When pressing the border below the keyboard, I will feel a little bit frail, especially round the left lower corner. Another problem is the touch pad, that is really a not a good design I think, when pressing the touch pad, it will make noise. I tried my friend's Thinkpad X1, the touch pad on it works quietly and very well. There will never be a computer satisfies everybody, but in general, this one is a very good one."
"If you move the mouse by trackpoint, then you have to physically click the touchpad. Clicking the touchpad requires much more strength than the separate buttons, and the required strength is more than your thumb can be expected to provide without provoking a good case for Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). You hands, especially your thumbs, get tired very fast from clicking the touchpad when using the trackpoint for mouse movements, and that makes RSI a very obvious result."
