Summary: I bought this laptop directly from Lenovo!! Its a nice laptop but with a major flaw. Believe it or not I cut my finger with this laptop. It has sharp edges on the lid. Close the lid and try to feel the edges on the llid then you will realize how sharp it is.
Summary: I thought I had done a good job researching (reading lots of reviews), and pulled the trigger on this Lenovo U430 at $799 (Dec'13). I use it mainly for email, web browsing, YouTube and World of Warcraft.
Summary: The windows 8 operating system is so different from older versions and seems much less user friendly to me. The Lenovo is loaded with much software that I won't use and don't want. I'd rather stick with soft wear I've used and like.
Summary: Pretty horrible computer. Most of the time it will not wake up from sleep. The trackpad is quite bad. WiFi connectivity is quite poor. I have also had issues with Bluetooth. Sorry I bought it. I needed a basic Windows machine to help my customers and thought this was a good choice.
Summary: I purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad u430 in February 2014 in an emergency situation. I had just started my own business and the motherboard of my previous work laptop died. I did not have much money to spend, and I needed a new work laptop that day as I had a client memo due the next day.
Summary: Pros: Light weight and good looking Cons: Slow despite the i7 processor and the fan makes a lot of noise I returned the laptop and got a new one from the seller but still have the same problems. Overall, I think this computer is overrated and I would recommend people get a different computer.
Summary: I have to say I was trying to give this laptop time to grow on me and maybe warm up to windows 8, It's been a couple of months now and I wish I would have returned it before the 1 month time requirement.
Summary: This computer freezes half the time I start a new working session. What do I do? I Try to start Task Manager in one of 2 ways:  pressing Control+Alt+Delete, which goes nowhere;  right-click on Taskbar, which also goes nowhere.
