Review Lenovo IdeaPad U410 Touch-59372989 Ultrabook

Notebookcheck
27 July 2013
  • Summary: IdeaPad plus touch. Since the advantages of Windows 8 only really come to the fore with a touchscreen, Lenovo installs this operating system on its U410 Touch. The IdeaPad is rather conservative otherwise.
  • Pros: High-quality build, USB 3.0, Appealing design, Decent performance, 8 gigabyte of RAM, Touchscreen, Touch features and Windows 8 are a perfect match. A touchscreen is a clear gain for every Windows 8 laptop. Then there is the good touchpad. The backup button on the casing's side is also nifty.
  • Cons: Dark screen with bluish cast, Extremely reflective, Keyboard yields, Too small backspace key, Below-average Wi-Fi performance, Brightness - a lot of brightness. The screen is too dark to work outdoors with the device, or in a train beside a window, in the car or in a room with a window or a brigh...

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 14-inch Ultrabook Review

ThinkComputers
3 January 2013
  • Summary: Final Thoughts When I first received the IdeaPad U410 I was extremely excited and eager to start using it.  At first glance this Ultrabook does impress.  The Ruby Red chassis really stands out among other laptops out there.
  • Pros: – Sleek aluminum deisgn, – Vibrant colors, – Good performance, – 56 hours of battery life, – Extremely comfortable keyboard and touchpad
  • Cons: – Don’t see the need for discrete graphics, – On the thick side when it comes to Ultrabooks, – WiFi issue

  • Conclusion: The Acer only comes in gunmetal gray, however. So if you have your heart set on a red or blue laptop and want a bit more screen space than the 13.3-inch IdeaPad U310, the U410 is a winning choice. Our only real gripe is the lack of a higher-resolution display option.
  • Pros: Good keyboard for an ultrabook, Dedicated graphics, Three color options
  • Cons: Screen resolution could be higher, Low-end graphics don't offer a huge real-world boost over Ivy Bridge integrated chipset, Keyboard not backlit

Review Lenovo IdeaPad U410-MAH6MGE Notebook

Notebookcheck
6 August 2012
  • Summary: Aluminum armor on the cheap (?). This statement does not necessarily apply to raw material prices. Lenovo is trying to bring top quality materials to the masses at nominal prices, as seen in the IdeaPad series. So, is investing in an IdeaPad U410 worthwhile for those interested in ultrabooks?
  • Pros: Stable, well-manufactured aluminum case, Excellent feel, Great, precise, big glass touchpad, Relatively quiet fan, SSD boost drive, The IdeaPad's look & feel is really great. It's been ages since a notebook felt this good! The glass touchpad is very accurate and supports multi-touch gestures. It ...
  • Cons: Poor wifi reception, Dark, reflective screen (not outdoor suitable), Cramped right key row (typos), (Virtually) superfluous, dedicated GPU, Dear manufacturers! Lenovo is not the only black sheep that still treats outdoor suitability of screens like an unimportant matter. But this is very importan...

TechRadar UK
10 July 2013
  • Summary: Lenovo's barely ultrabook goes touch
  • Pros: Excellent graphics performance, Great price, Impressive specs across the board, Comfortable to use, The killer thing here is naturally the graphics - well, the spec sheet in general, but the graphics are the most impressive part. This really is a gaming Ultrabook. Ok, it's not a high-end gamers' ...
  • Cons: Slightly low battery life, CPU underperforms, Screen has tight viewing angles, Some build issues, While we understand the compromises that Lenovo had to make for cost here, that doesn't mean we like them. In fact, we dislike them. It says so above. So yes, it's a shame that the screen couldn't ha...
