Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch


With very few compromises and all-day battery life, the Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch the entry-level ultrabook to get.

Excellent battery life. Lighter than other entry-level ultrabooks. Comfy backlit keyboard. Ethernet port. HDMI port. Function keys setup intelligently for consumers. 1,600 by 900 resolution screen

Low maximum volume on speakers. Motion Control and voice control are gimmicky. Some third party software pre-loaded

Entry-level ultrabooks like the Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch ($699.99) are all about portability and features. With a high-resolution 14-inch touch screen, Intel Core i5-4200U processor, 4GB of memory, and a 500GB+16GB HDD+SSD setup, the U430 Touch is a...

Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch review: A daily driver with all-day battery life


This surprisingly inexpensive Ultrabook is a terrific value.

Elegant design ; Excellent backlit keyboard ; Very long battery life

Resolution limited to 1600 by 900 ; Only one USB 3.0 port ; A little heavy for its size

This is one of the most affordable Ultrabooks we’ve seen, and the compromises Lenovo made to get there are not showstoppers by any stretch.

Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch review


Chinese laptop manufacturer Lenovo has enjoyed a meteoric rise over the last few years, soaring from a mid-tier player to the world's largest manufacturer. The company's products have no doubt contributed to this, as they are almost always among the...

Good build quality and design ; Great keyboard ; 1600 x 900 display resolution ; Adequate performance ; Strong battery life ; Cool, quiet operation

Touchpad feels cheap ; Dull display ; Speakers could be better

Lenovo’s U430 proves you don’t have to spend a fortune to enjoy a slim, powerful Ultrabook.

Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch


The Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch Ultrabook has a sharp design, long-lasting battery and useful voice control for less cash than the competition.

Attractive all-aluminum design; Long battery life; Excellent backlit keyboard; Very loud speakers; Voice control

Display has narrow viewing angles; Lackluster webcam

The mere fact that the $699 Lenovo U430 Touch has an attractive design, excellent backlit keyboard and strong endurance would be enough to make it one of our favorite Ultrabooks. But Lenovo went even further, adding voice-recognition software and...

Some "premium" features packed in under $750


Sometimes you just need a laptop despite having a tablet. I thus decided to use my credit card points and buy U430 touch by LenovoNote that there are two models for this laptop - this one has a i5 CPU with 8GB memory and the other one has i7 CPU with...

Not heavy despite solid metal build, back-lit chiclet style keyboard, speedy performance

Not for hi-res hardcore gaming, and Windows 8.1 is a "confused" (not confusing) OS

I have been using this laptop for four months, and I'm totally satisfied. I use it for email, surfing the Net, storing music, and productivity tasks, such as lightweight spreadsheet and intensive word processing. It is more than adequate in all areas....

Compact, fast, comforable keyboard, sharp display

Touchpad only average

Great value, but misleading


Just purchased the laptop. Decent audio, good video, performance seems good so far. However, no specs are listed for this laptop (i.e. installed cards, etc), even on Lenovo's website, information is a bit spotty. So when the tech at the store looked it...

Wireless connectivity, could have used another USB 3

i really wanted to love this machine, but had to return it. i was willing to overlook the somewhat loosely seated, noisy, unpredictable touch pad (the right half wasn't fixed down all the way and lifted/gave). however, the display is very, very bad. no...

amazingly awful panel/display, questionable touch pad quality

Beware, Doesn'y have wireless AC but N


Beware ! As mentioned in specs on or before 6/19, this particular i5 8GB model doesn't have wireless AC. Instead it has the common N 7260. I was watching this specific model since a couple of days and waiting for it to arrive at Bellevue, WA store. The...

I bought this as a Best Buy Deal of the day. Setup went smoothly, got all my data and apps transferred, adjusted settings and tweaked away. So far so good. Connected to my home wifi and there it seemed to lag. I had read complaints about this in some...
