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 8 best laptops and Ultrabooks available today

 

Buy one for yourself, or give one away as a very generous gift. Either way, these are the mobile PC to beat this holiday season.

Fast startup, OneKey Recovery button ; Perfect for student on a budget

Battery life is a little below average ; Does poorly at gaming

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.

Well, it's a computer.

 

Steal of a deal for $450 on a black Friday promo thing, but with the problems I've read about and personally tried to deal with, it may not be worth much more than that in the first place. Probably going to RMA this one and if I run into these problems...

Got it for total $450, not bad at all, though I think the actual asking price is a lot about the name, I don't think this is worth that, but on a sale it's not bad. Overall it feels quite solid, the metal body makes it weigh a bit more than it looks...

As I'm seeing a lot in other reviews, the touchpad is incredibly jumpy. The one in mine isn't quite as bad as I've read others' are, but it's still not a precision device. I went to the Synaptics website and downloaded the newest driver and it wouldn't...

Great!

 

Overall, I like this laptop a lot, and it is great for gaming, without the multi-thousand dollar price tag.

Super fast (I've played games like Skyrim on it, and it works great!) ; SSD is a great addition ; Lots of HDD space ; Not that expensive for a gaming laptop

There are a few small things ; The keyboard is a bit flimsy, the entire keyboard moves when you type one letter ; It gets very hot near where one would rest their hand ; The SSD isn't quite big enough to transfer the OS to
