Summary: The IdeaPad V470 is a sleek notebook with an excellent keyboard and strong security features, making it a good choice for business users on the go. The Core i3 performance isn't blazing, but there's plenty of oomph here for work and play. For $599, we can live without a backlit keyboard and USB 3.0, but the lack of multitouch support on the touchpad is annoying.
Pros: Sleek and sturdy aluminum design, Excellent keyboard, Accurate touchpad and comfy buttons, Fingerprint reader and Port Locker help protect data
Cons: Limited multitouch support, Relatively short battery life, Below-average performance
