Thinkpad L430 vs. Edge E430

Hi,

 

I would like to buy a Lenovo Thinkpad. There are pretty good offers at the Outlet.

 

I am not sure about the model that I should get. I am deciding between the L430 and the E430.

 

While I have a preference for the L430, I have some concerns/questions:

 

  • Regardless of the model choice, will a 14inch screen be enough for school and other stuff like watching movies?
  • What are the advantages of the E430? Some models are priced higher than the L430.

 

Background:

I currently have a 15.6inch laptop. I think I want a smaller one as I need to carry my computer to school. The 15.6 inch is pretty heavy. However, I am very used to that format and a bit scared that a 14inch might be too small. E.g. if I work with Excel, Word, or Outlook.

 

Although the L430 seems to be the more robust computer with the better specifications as compared to the E430, the L430 looks a bit old and it might not be as good as e.g. for watching movies. I want to use my computer both for school and free time.

 

Thanks for your help!
