Lenovo U310 Review

 

The Ultrabook concept (ultrathin but powerful laptop) was introduced by Intel in 2011, and the first MacBook Air with default solid state storage came out in 2010. Since then, almost every major computer producer has come out with a thin [...]

The Lenovo U310 laptop is the first of a new breed of Ultrabook that’s a little chubbier and a tinch slower, but much more affordable. Every other major computer maker–Dell, HP, Sony–is going to have an Intel-certified Ultrabook at this price point...

Lenovo IdeaPad U310 Laptop Review

 

Affordable Ultrabook. Lenovo updates their sleek IdeaPad U300/U400 Ultrabook lineup with new Ivy Bridge-equipped IdeaPad U310/U410 models to take on the rest of 2012. Do the upgrades go beyond just the CPU and GPU changes?

Good CPU performance, Good SSD caching performance, Visually appealing chassis and strong base, Large and responsive touchpad, Easy-to-reach ports, Full-size HDMI and 10/100 RJ-45 ports, Low starting price, Although virtually untouched in terms of...

Low screen brightness, No keyboard backlight, Low capacity battery/ Average battery life, No easy end-user expandability options, Fan is always audible, Heavier than most Ultrabooks, Non-removable battery, Weak GPU performance, A brighter screen,...

Lenovo IdeaPad U310 Touch Review

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad U310 Touch is compact affordable notebook with a solid level of performance.

Affordable ; SSD Cache ; Compact Design

Short Battery Life ; Poor Speaker Quality

The Lenovo U310 Touch is an ideal ultrabook for the cost conscious business user. The sleek design is great for travel, and the Intel i5 processor with 4GB of RAM provides the performance users need to stay productive at an affordable price point.

Lenovo IdeaPad U310

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad U310 delivers strong performance thanks to a third-generation Intel Core i5 processor, but we wish it lasted longer on the road.

Intel third-generation Core i5 processor. Wireless Display 2.0. Comfortable keyboard and mouse

Quiet audio. Seven-hour battery-life is good, but not great

Lenovo IdeaPad U310 review: a reasonably priced Ultrabook for the masses

 

More Info Lenovo IdeaPad U300s review Lenovo's IdeaPad U310 and U410 Ultrabooks start at an inexpensive $699, weigh a little more than the

Attractive design ; Cushy, tactile keys ; Trackpad works well

Thicker and heavier than other Ultrabooks ; Relatively short battery life ; Noisy

The U310's design, keyboard and trackpad make it a tempting option at this price, but be prepared to make a few compromises around performance and portability.

Lenovo IdeaPad U310 Review: A Dorm-Room Ultrabook

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad U310 isn't the sexiest, sleekest Ultrabook out there, nor is it the most feature-packed. But it does come closer to what we expect an Ultrabook to be: attractive, light, and less than $800. The U310 comes in multiple colors, sports a...

Available in different colors ; Fairly loud speakers

Looks too much like the MacBook Pro ; Screen is dim

Inexpensive and available in bright colors, the IdeaPad U310 will most likely appeal to college students.

Lenovo IdeaPad U310 review

 

The deluge of competitors to the MacBook Air's throne shows no sign of slowing, and while the jury's still out on whether an ultrabook has yet to truly best Apple's wunder-device there have been a number of attractive options. Consider the IdeaPad...

Sturdy build ; Excellent keyboard and trackpad ; Very pretty

Keyboard isn’t backlit ; Thicker and heavier than competitors ; Fan noise is distracting

Lenovo IdeaPad U310 review: $799 back-to-school ultrabook

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad U310 is an all-around decent ultrabook that's perfectly priced for back-to-school shoppers, but there are plenty of alternatives with nearly identically prices and features.

The IdeaPad U310 offers up an attractive design and all the basic bells and whistles of a 13-inch ultrabook for $799, including plenty of USB ports and Ethernet

The thicker, heavier design weighs a bit more than last year's U300s, and there aren't any SSD-only upgrade options
