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

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 Review

 

Under 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 business users alike....

Eye-catching color and design, Strong performance, Solid graphics, Runs cool

Lackluster audio, Display dimmer than some Ultrabooks

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...

Okay, so the technophiles of the world probably won’t find much to get excited about with the IdeaPad U410, but this laptop will prove to be a good value for those who are more concerned with functionality than amazing specs. There are a few flaws,...

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 14-inch Ultrabook Review

 

Final ThoughtsWhen I first received the IdeaPad U410 I was extremely excited and eager to start using it.  At first glance this Ultrabook does impress.  The Ruby Red chassis really stands out among other laptops out there.  The U410 is pretty thin and...

Sleek aluminum deisgn, – Vibrant colors, – Good performance, – 56 hours of battery life, – Extremely comfortable keyboard and touchpad

Don’t see the need for discrete graphics, – On the thick side when it comes to Ultrabooks, – WiFi issue

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 (59-342788) Review

 

The Core i5 (Ivy Bridge) version of the Lenovo IdeaPad U410 is a real steal deal, with a market price of Rs. 52,000. The build quality is something that would comfortably do justice to even an ultrabook with a much higher price tag. The thickness is...

Very good performance, Excellent battery life, Display quality among the best in ultrabooks, Sleek form factor, Built very well

Both Rapid Start and Rapid Storage will not work together on the 24GB mSATA, Display slightly dimmer than some ultrabooks, Limited graphics

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...

GOOD FOR GAMING!

Expert review by: Matt Safford (computershopper.com)

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 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

We first crossed paths with the Lenovo IdeaPad U410 around this time last year, finding it to be a very tidy little package, even if it strained the Ultrabook name a little. Its mid-range price belied some rather useful specs, though, such as a...
