Lenovo IdeaPad V460 Review


Business notebooks aren't always affordable -- Lenovo aims to change that with its V-series IdeaPad. Today we look at the V460, which has a 14-inch display, Intel Core i5 processor and comes in under $800.

Stylish design ; Good build quality ; Nice keyboard ; Decent speakers

Less than 4 hours battery life ; Touchpad too sensitive

Lenovo IdeaPad V460


Maybe you can have it all. Despite a notebook market fragmented into various extremes – from netbooks that can barely play YouTube videos to desktop replacements you can barely lift off the desk – a handful of notebooks still manage to find some middle...

Superb, ThinkPad-grade keyboard ; Sleek aluminum design, lightweight ; Powerful processor options ; Decent gaming performance with optional GeForce 310M ; Bright matte screen ; Affordable ; HDD protection, fingerprint reader, other business features

Short battery life ; No Nvidia Optimus for automatic GPU switching ; Screen borders on washed out at max brightness ; Occasionally finicky touchpad

Lenovo’s down-to-business V460 pairs bold style with real gaming performance, but battery life gets lost somewhere in the mix.

With an upscale look and strong performance for a down-market price, the V460 is a good bet among thin-and-lights.

Very good performance, Manually switchable graphics, Sharp design, Comfortable keyboard

Was a little hesitant when choosing to go with the Lenovo brand, but happy I when with it. The size and weight of this computer makes it great for college students. I did have an issue out of the box after updating windows, the touch pad wast working,...

The size and weight make it very portable. Great if your always on the go ; Battery life is OK, I like how in windows 7 you can adjust the settings ; Performance with the i3 2.26ghz cpu and 4GB of ram this does everything I need it to do and the some ;...

Touch pad gets annoying when typing and writing code. I've noticed that the wireless card has some trouble connecting to my schools network when others are able to connect, but after a few tries it will connect. I don't seem to have the problem...

Great value for its features and specs


I bought this item at a great price and I must say I love it. I just didn't notice that the graphics was integrated which gives me low performance ratings in Windows 7 but overall the machine performs well.

lenovo has officially abandoned linux


Definitely not a thinkpad; flimsy feel, thin lid with no latch - definately itching for a cracked screen. How the mighty have fallen...

not really in the mood to list any. price was right at the time

After 2 weeks of trying to get the bottom of the line broadcom wifi in the V460 to work with the latest linux kernel, I bought a decent Intel wifi card, only to get the dreaded "UNAUTHORIZED WIRELESS CARD INSTALLED REMOVE AND REBOOT" message. Seeing as...

A little disappointed


My major disappointment with this laptop is the biometric fingerprint reader, which was one of the main reasons I picked a Lenovo over comparable competitors. Unfortunately, the software program (BioExcess) which runs it did not function properly from...
