Notebookcheck
8 March 2012
  • Summary: Eye candy. The Lenovo IdeaPad U400 features one of the better-looking exteriors we've seen on a mid-range notebook, but can its internal components match up?
  • Pros: Great case, Compact power adapter, Well-constructed case, nice aesthetics.
  • Cons: Average benchmark performance, Hard to manually upgrade, Middling display performance, Better performance and port selection.

  • Conclusion: For those of you with a specific use-case in mind, be sure to comment below and I'll let you know if I think this computer is the one for you or not. For me, it's simply not the perfect combination of thin, light, and powerful.

  • Conclusion: With its swanky metal shell, good Webcam and sound system, and Lenovo's value-added performance and security features, the IdeaPad U400 is on its way to being a nice laptop. But our test unit gave us the impression that it wasn't quite finished yet.
  • Pros: Great Webcam and sound system, Strong performance, Gorgeous polished-aluminum case
  • Cons: Finicky touch pad, No perceptible processing boost from discrete graphics, Small, cramped keyboard

  • Excerpt: Lenovo’s U Series IdeaPads are all about the blend of style and substance. We’re fans of the ultraportables and ultrabooks in the line and were eager to see how the mainstream U400 stacked up.
  • Pros: Sturdy, attractive design, Good overall performance, Long battery life, Rockin’ speakers
  • Cons: Finicky touchpad, Disappointing 1366 x 768 resolution, Skimpy ports, Uninspiring graphics

  • Conclusion: The Lenovo IdeaPad U400 brings the new U series stylish look and aluminum unibody design to a more mainstream size. But it's still one of the thinner and lighter 14" laptops on the market, and the U400 plus its smaller and light charger are easy to take anywhere.
  • Pros: Stylish unibody design, mainstream performance plus optical drive.
  • Cons: Battery is sealed inside, no matte display or Blu-ray options.

  • Cons: Trackpad stumbles at times, Not enough USB 3.0 ports, Battery life claims agressive, Unusual keyboard layout

Gadgetmania
13 December 2011
  • Conclusion: The configuration above, with a 750 GB HDD can be bought for $1300 at the moment, which is a pretty decent price for the build quality and performance that you’re getting, and if you need an affordable, high quality laptop with enough processing power for any apps including Photoshop and After...

Lenovo IdeaPad U400 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
9 December 2011
  • Summary: For better and worse--mostly worse--the Lenovo IdeaPad U400 is simply a larger version of its U300s Ultrabook . While we like its styling and larger hard drive, we still had trouble with its touchpad, and can't get over the fact that there's no SD card slot.
