Other then the hard drive only giving access to SSD, its awesome!

Summary: An amazing product. It had everything as listed. I have not rated it 5/5 because as it turns out the 2 hard drives were swapped in function. That was the only thing, other then that, best notebook a buy can buy.
Summary: Fast and not loaded with proprietary stuff. Runs well and mine was a factory refurbished purchase. No problem with WIFI --- USB works well. Windows 8 can be difficult to deal with if you are used to Win 7 and before. Camera is good, also. The i5 quad core helps.
Fast & Solid laptop, great price, gettin' used to the keyboard.

Summary: Based on the specs on should have paid a couple hundred more bucks than what I did. However it was a mfg. refurb. Really fast, great at multitasking and general office and web stuff. Launches quickbooks pro fast as hell compared to my last laptop. Overall love the thin Ultrabook feel, love the light weight, Grey color looks sleek. Hoping the exterior is resistant to scratches, only time will tell.
Summary: This is exactly what I was looking for in a laptop; lightweight, fast, good battery life and plenty of outputs (2x 2.0 USB, 2x 3.0 USB, HDMI ....) The keyboard has been a little tough to get used to but I do appreciate all of the function keys including volume, screen minimizing and instant disabling of the touchpad. I hate touchpads in general and disabled most of the functions on mine.
Summary: This sleek and slim, Awesome design and performance.. But I dint know that it dint have a bluetooth device inbuild as it is now one of most important thing in a laptop. But overall it is nice .
Summary: As a whole I love this laptop. Lenovo makes a quality product compared with the like of Apple. Essentially this laptop is the "macbook" of the PC world. My sister-in-law has a 13 inch macbook pro and she used my Lenovo and perfered my laptop to hers. She even proposed a trade lol! Nice product! I purchased mine from Best Buy. The one I purchased from Amazon was bangged up and there were was not a replacement. I love the Cherry Blossom Pink color!
Windows 8 and accompanying software really makes it slow

Summary: It's almost unbearably slow -- typing without seeing the letters appear on your computer for a second, moving the mouse and experiencing lag. My husband had to uninstall MacFee and fixed bunch of settings before it's usable. Still the booting time is long (I think that's more of Windows 8 fault). Battery last about 5 hours. The right shift key is shorter than normal so I often hit the wrong key in the beginning.
Summary: The design is very nice! The start up is amazing, something about 2-3 seconds! The display is very good too! Good weight! Long life battery! Large keyboard with good space between the keys, but unfortunately the keys are not so comfortable as it seems. (bad point) To press the keys F1, F2, F3..etc is necessary to press the Fn (function) key, I didn't like it! I would appreciate if was the opposite. (bad point) Good buy! even with the keyboard "problems".... I recommend!
Summary: I highly recommend the IdeaPad U 410 Ultrabook, Isn’t heavy, the 14” display has very good resolution, large keyboard with good space between keys, long life battery (almost reach the lasting time stated in the brochure), in sum is a very dependable piece of technology.
Summary: I'm about a month in, and despite some of the UX impediments of Windows 8, I love the laptop. Great form factor (Mac-like), without all the costs of being a fanboy. The only thing that might make this thing even better is an easier way to manage the battery life management tool and having a backlit keyboard. Great laptop for the price.
