Reviews for the Lenovo E31-70-80KX0007GE
Source: Laptop Media Archive.org version
Lenovo E31 Notebook is a great laptop for its price. The design is stylish and clean. Small details sprinkled all around the device serve to remind us of the iconic ThinkPad series. It has a nice rubberized lid for good grip and sturdy build, even though it is completely made out of plastic. The flexible 180-degree hinge is a nifty little feature, and it is strong enough to hold the screen in the exact position you put it. The keyboard is pretty comfortable, the trackpad is fast and responsive. Hardware specs are pretty good for the price. It should be able to satisfy most business users and may even bring more to the table. The fingerprint scanner is a great feature that makes login easy and secure. It also allows you to easily access frequently used applications.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
