Review Lenovo IdeaPad U410-MAH6MGE Notebook

 

Aluminum armor on the cheap (?). This statement does not necessar

Stable, well-manufactured aluminum case; Excellent feel; Great, precise, big glass touchpad; Relatively quiet fan; SSD boost drive

Poor wifi reception; Dark, reflective screen (not outdoor suitable); Cramped right key row (typos); (Virtually) superfluous, dedicated GPU

The smaller brother - the IdeaPad U310 and virtually all devices from the ultrabook category, such as the Zenbook UX31A, UX32VD and HP's Folio 13. Our Top 10 Subnotebook chart offers a good basis for comparison.

The Lenovo IdeaPad U410 is an affordable Ultrabook that offers strong performance in a striking design.

Click to EnlargeUnder that arresting Ruby Red chassis, the $799 Lenovo IdeaPad U410 has a lot going for it. Packed with Ivy Bridge and discrete Nvidia graphics, this sub-$800 Ultrabook is a mobile powerhouse that will appeal to both consumers and...

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 (Intel Core i5, Ivy Bridge) Review

 

Lenovo has launched its latest line of IdeaPads, and they're targeted directly at the mainstream consumer. The Lenovo IdeaPad U410 comes with an eye-catching colored aluminum chassis – we received one in Sapphire Blue, but the U410 is also available in...

Additionally, you’re paying a fair price for what you’re getting. Prices range depending on what you want under the hood, but the model we received – which is by no means a slouch – has a price tag of $799. That’ll prove to be a pretty attractive price...

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 Review: Trying To Keep Up

 

Before Intel released the ultrabook standard there were already laptops that we're close to what Intel would envision, and while some had already gained attention on their own, most were not given any special attention. One of these laptops was the...

Lenovo IdeaPad U410

 

Ask us to recommend a thin, stylish ultrabook, and we won't be tongue-tied or shy: Recent Editors' Choices include the newly refreshed Apple MacBook Air 13.3-inch, the gorgeously 1080p-screened Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD-DB71, and Lenovo's...

Good keyboard for an ultrabook ; Dedicated graphics ; Three color options

Screen resolution could be higher ; Low-end graphics don't offer a huge real-world boost over Ivy Bridge integrated chipset ; Keyboard not backlit

This well-rounded 14-inch ultrabook sports a great keyboard plus dedicated graphics for a little extra gaming performance. Our main complaint is that its screen is stuck at the same 1,366x768 resolution as lesser models.

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 Ultrabook Review

 

One of the latest systems to be released in the Ultrabook category is Lenovo's U410 which has a hefty advertising campaign behind it and GeForce GPU inside. Today we have one on our test bench and will see how it compares to the last generation system...

Lenovo offer a very good balance of performance, quality and value. One of the better Ultrabooks for gaming and plenty fast in normal desktop use.

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 Touch review

 

Lenovo's barely ultrabook goes touch

Excellent graphics performance ; Great price ; Impressive specs across the board ; Comfortable to use

Slightly low battery life ; CPU underperforms ; Screen has tight viewing angles ; Some build issues

Lenovo has produced a really solid portable gaming machine, but it does feel like its focus on a strong GPU, RAM and hard drive have taken a toll elsewhere. The overall balance is definitely still in its favour, though.

Lenovo Ideapad U410 review

 

When Lenovo got in touch to see if we'd like to review a U410, it was pitched very much as a low-budget, but super-powerful laptop. The range, it was pointed out, starts at £600 for the 13-inch and £650 for the 14-inch model. Interesting, we thought,...

Great styling, good connectivity, sturdy

Battery doesn't seem brilliant, quite heavy

A good all-rounder, we have a good feeling about this laptop, we liked using it and it looks the part. The battery life is a worry, and we think people will more than likely want to spend a little more, to get a thin and light ultrabook, but that...

Great price ; Ivy Bridge CPU ; Nvidia graphics ; Brilliant sound ; Massive HDD

Quite chunky ; Poor battery life ; Average build quality ; Mediocre display ; Sensitive trackpad
