Lenovo ThinkPad T431s vs HP EliteBook Folio 9470m vs Apple MacBook Air:Which one is the Better?

W.A.Khan,                                                                                                                                                 Lenovo ThinkPad T431s                                                                                                                           The T431s has a 14-inch 1,600x900-pixel-resolution screen. It's a very good resolution for a screen this size: better than the basic 1,366x768-resolution screens on slightly less expensive models, but without the expense of a 1,920x1,080 panel that would seem a touch unnecessary on a midrange business system.The Lenovo ThinkPad T431s is a simple, straightforward business laptop that is built tough, has ample security options, and is thin and light enough for daily commuting. It also has an excellent keyboard and works well with Windows 8.
But, If having the latest Intel processors or discrete graphics is important, you'll have to pass.
The bottom line: A buttoned-down T-series with some modern touches, the Lenovo ThinkPad T431s is a business laptop you won't mind traveling with unless you need the latest and greatest components.                                                                                                                                                                                     Specifications

We would have liked an HD panel in this laptop for the price (or at least a 1600x900 panel), and also a panel with better vertical viewing angles. The screen is quite bright though and we love the matte finish, which means that reflections won't be irritating while using it with light sources behind you.The battery life of HP Elitebook 9470m "up to 9 hours and 30 minutes.
But, There's no touch screen, it has a non-high-res display, and there's a general lack of unique features to justify its high price.
The bottom line: The HP Elitebook Folio 9470m does a serviceable job at being a good thin all-around Windows 8 business laptop, but it doesn’t rise from the pack, and it doesn’t take any chances.

The multitouch trackpad is still the industry's best, and even better, the 13-inch MacBook Air now starts at $100 less than the previous model.                                                                                                                                     Performance:
The new Haswell processors use very little power, giving the 2013 13-inch MacBook Air and absolutely stunning battery life. In our test, in which we streamed the live BBC News channel feed on iPlayer over a wireless network, the laptop lasted for nine hours. That's significantly better than the 11-inch MacBook Air's 7 hours 15 minutes, and a substantial improvement over the 2012 MacBook Air's 5.5 hours.
Since switching to solid state storage off the shelf with the late 2010 update, the MacBook Air has been known for its good battery life. But with the Haswell processors in place, it's absolutely stunning. At last, you can use your notebook all day long on a single charge.
But, Newer features such as touch screens and higher-resolution displays are still missing. The ultrabook competition is catching up, in terms of design.
The bottom line: Apple keeps the latest MacBook Air updates on the inside, but greatly improved battery life and a lower starting price make up for a lack of flashy design changes.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Specifications
