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...

So fast is the best I have seen for the price.


I did a lot of research to replace my 2 years old Dell because it was kind of heavy to carry on and this was my final choice. So far I am extremely happy with this incredible machine, specially at the time of writing letters or emails since I don't...

I love the keyboard (light touch) and resting pad!


Because I had an injury to my hand, I was looking for a really light touch. I am intending to start writing and I am a fast typist, but on other products my fingers were not free to move fast. So I am really pleased with the touch. I also find that the...

The touch and the 14" size is perfect for me

I miss the side DVD/CD tray

Very good consumer laptop


Good conveniences such as backlit keyboard and USB 3.0 slot. Also looks and feels good to the touch, so using it is a pleasant experience. Make sure to check out the LAN connection (wired LAN) as soon as you buy the laptop - it didn't seem to work...

Touch and feel quality, backlit keyboard

Nothing is really 'bad

Awesome laptop for every day use


Lenovo scored 2nd in the worlds top 10 computer companies, with Apple winning 1st. The price difference between the two is notable, which is why I went with Lenovo. I have been using this laptop for a while now, and have come to like it very much. It's...

Easy to set up, fast, convenient size

Touch pad not so great

Consumer review by:

Great Value Laptop


I spend close to 2 months researching laptops for college, and finally I settled on this laptop. I have been impressed with many things and for the price at $500, refurbished, I can't be more happy with my purchase. The screen size is perfect, the...
