Summary: Had my u410 for about a year now. This morning while working on a class project it decided it would only get limited internet connection even after restarting it. This is a common problem. WiFi is pretty much based on luck. Macbook users and other computers will all have internet but you will not. Combine this with Windows 8 and you have a computer that is useable if all you do is make photo albums or use internet at home.
Summary: I ordered this laptop in June from another source and received one without anything (i.e., Windows) loaded on it; so, it was basically useless I called Lenovo, and they couldn't help me. The store from where I purchased it sent me another one, though. It is sleek and sturdy, but a bit heavy (although, lighter than the computer I replaced).
Summary: Hopefully this laptop will become more usable once Microsoft updates it with Windows 8.1 to make it more user friendly. Windows 8 in not intuitive for those of us that have been using Windows for a while. It's a nuisance just to try and get anything done on this laptop. Also, the damn thing got hung up so badly, that I had to do a complete reset on it, removing all user content and applications.
Summary: Pros: 15.6" screen, DVD drive, 6 hr battery life, numeric keypad, price, lightweight, stylish, slim, backlit keyboard Cons: faulty trackpad, no standard VGA port (mini VGA is non standard and adapter is not available), HDMI to VGA adapter not included I really like the 15.6" screen, DVD drive and a numeric keypad, which are not common features in ultrabooks. These features are very important to me. Based on this, I would rate this 5/5.
Summary: I will say I enjoyed the laptop while it worked. The form factor was nice, has a lot of features packed into it for the size, love Windows 8. This laptop was more than enough for what I wanted it for. However, after 2 weeks of use, it began freezing and locking up. Seemed like a hardware issue (I am an IT Guy), but I restored Windows just to make sure. Could not completely recover, so I called Lenovo, they couldn't fix it either.
Summary: I received the item way before Christmas, even though the estimated shipping date was supposed to be after Christmas, so two thumbs up on that part. I bought this laptop for mother and I chose this one because the all the positive review and how it is cheaper than HP or Dell, but when I played around with it, I was not impressed at all. It is brand new computer and we did not add any additional program, and the computer starts up real slow.
Summary: The laptop is definately fast, light, and comes with all the specs advertised. But... the OS is NOT installed on the SSD. The SSD is just big enough for a clean Windows install, and some programs, but not really much else. From the factory, the data on the C: drive takes up almost 27 GB. Overall, very disappointed. The entire reason for buying a laptop with a SSD was for the fast OS reponse.
Не покупать! Есть более дешевая и надежная альтернатива.

Summary: Пользуюсь два месяца. Брал не тестируя, что называется по внешнему виду. Сначала вроде все неплохо выглядело, шустрый, тихий, правда с отвратительным экраном и тачпадом, но потом начались проблемы, перестал работать WiFi и Bluetooth... Начал узнавать и оказалось, что не я один такой. Вообщем оба модуля под замену, это в лучшем случае... Буду чинить сам, ибо по гарантии это долго и не надежно. Как починю, сразу продам.
Pros: Стильный, Тонкий
Cons: Судя по всему, заводской брак модулей WiFi и Bluetooth., Экран, Тачпад, Процессор i3 не для нагрузок
