Hard to Handle

 

It's a tall order. Build a capable laptop, thin and light, with a touchscreen, and keep the price at a mainstream-friendly $700 or less. Yes, sacrifices will have to be made to get there, but surely this can be done, right? In the case of the Lenovo...

Cheap for a machine in this class. Looks pretty. Built-in, touchless Motion Control navigation is a neat add-on

A trio of deal-killers on a laptop in this category: Rotten keyboard, primitive touchpad, budget screen

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

 

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

Lenovo has managed to once again create budget Ultrabook magic with the Lenovo U430 Touch. At $699, this system is hard to beat, as it offers a decent display resolution, good keyboard, and adequate performance without sacrificing battery life.

Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch

 

Value Unbeatable for this price. With an elegant if understated design, great ergonomics, good performance and a responsive touch screen, this Lenovo Ultrabook's price tag seems more than reasonable. One catch for U.S. buyers: The only place to get the...

Attractive aluminum design, Comfy backlit keyboard, Gorgeous 1,600x900 display, Long battery life

Stiff touch pad, Tinny audio

The U430 Touch, however, boasts an excellent keyboard, a stunning high-res display, enough speed to make everyday computing a breeze, and a battery that lasts almost an entire workday, all wrapped up in a beautiful aluminum chassis. You'll be hard...

Excellent lap top

 

Bought this lap top a year ago and would like to purchase another. Only downfall is no CD drive however we have managed without by using other computers.

Good and responsive

 

Good specs for the price. I didn't like the hollow area around the hinges, however newer version has addressed this issue. Its a bit heavy but ultrabooks with similar specs costs lot more
