Summary: I built websites for several clients and wanted a small but powerful laptop to use while traveling. This computer fit my requirement perfectly. The SSD allows very fast boot times. The 1 TB disk drive is large enough to hold all of my files. So far I have not been disappointed.
Summary: I purchased this laptop for my return to college, and have had it over a year now. The main pull was the SSD and 750Gb HDD. This thing really boots up fast and has battery enough to get me through a day of classes without being tied to a plug in. As with any computer, keep it clean (virus/spyware/malware) and don't have too many programs starting up at beginning. I really do like Lenovo compared to other computer companies as there is not a lot of bloatware.
Summary: This is one great computer. Well built and got it at a great price. Fast processor speed, light weight and has more than adequate memory for a laptop. People should check out Amazon's prices before considering TV sites that put the emphasis on the software installed on a computer that is grossly over priced.
High Performance, Excellent Quality, & Superb Portability
15 October 2013
Summary: I've had this ultra-book for about 1 week and I am a heavy user of adobe software. It has not let me down once! The 8 GB ram and i7-3537 CPU delivers when I am running Photoshop CS6, Lightroom 5, and Premiere Pro at the same time. The portability is also great since it is relatively small 14" screen, but has enough size to get a great display and use the keyboard efficiently. The battery does about 4 hours when I have the graphics running high, and using adobe software.
Summary: I don't usually write reviews, but I feel obligated to write this one since there were so many reviews reporting wifi issues. I was concerned, but I bought anyway since the computer had everything I was looking for. I was preparing to install new drivers like some users recommended, or even purchase an external wifi usb device if it came down to it. Fortunately, I don't have to do either as the wifi issue doesn't seem to be a problem on the unit I received.
Summary: This is a review for the Lenovo U410 ultrabook. I bought the refurbished one from Fishekin Electronics for a little under $600 which was a great deal for those specs. The seller responded to my queries quickly and was very fast in shipping the item. The ultrabook was well packed and came with pre-installed Windows 8. The computer worked as a charm from day one! The battery holds nowhere near the 8-9 hour limit I've seen in reviews.
