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 bright lamp behind the user.

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.  The U410 is pretty thin and light as well with the official dimensions of 3.5 x 9.3 x 0.8-inches and weighing in at 4.2 pounds.  Now this is in fact thin in light to the normal laptop crowd, but in the Ultrabook world that is pretty bulky and heavy.
  • 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

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 (59-342788) Review

thinkdigit.com
29 October 2012
  • Summary: The Core i5 (Ivy Bridge) version of the Lenovo IdeaPad U410 is a real steal deal, with a market price of Rs. 52,000. The build quality is something that would comfortably do justice to even an ultrabook with a much higher price tag. The thickness is somewhere between that of a MacBook Air and a MacBook Pro 13, which panders very efficiently to its appeal. Brilliant battery life and very good performance are essentially two cherries on the top of the cake!
  • Pros: Very good performance, Excellent battery life, Display quality among the best in ultrabooks, Sleek form factor, Built very well
  • Cons: Both Rapid Start and Rapid Storage will not work together on the 24GB mSATA, Display slightly dimmer than some ultrabooks, Limited graphics

  • 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? We scrutinize Lenovo's 14-inch ultrabook and try to answer this question.
  • 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 works smoother and more precisely than expected. Tapping with two fingers triggers a right click and there is a marked field for everyone who prefers conventional keys.
  • 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 important for devices designed for portability. This is a glaring omission (pun intended).

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
6 August 2012
  • Summary: Under that arresting Ruby Red chassis, the $799 Lenovo IdeaPad U410 has a lot going for it. Packed with Ivy Bridge and discrete Nvidia graphics, this sub-$800 Ultrabook is a mobile powerhouse that will appeal to both consumers and business users alike. Those looking for greater graphics power should look at the $779 Acer Aspire TimelineU M5 481TG-6814 , which also has better audio, a brighter display, and an optical drive -- but poor port placement.
  • Pros: Eye-catching color and design, Strong performance, Solid graphics, Runs cool,
  • Cons: Lackluster audio, Display dimmer than some Ultrabooks
