Lenovo IdeaPad U310 review: a reasonably priced Ultrabook for the masses

 

The U310's design, keyboard and trackpad make it a tempting option at this price, but be prepared to make a few compromises around performance and portability.

Attractive designCushy, tactile keysTrackpad works well

Thicker and heavier than other UltrabooksRelatively short battery life Noisy

Lenovo IdeaPad U310

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad U310 delivers strong performance thanks to a third-generation Intel Core i5 processor, and does so at a moderate price.

Intel third-generation Core i5 processor. Wireless Display 2.0. Comfortable keyboard and mouse.

Quiet audio. Seven-hour battery-life is good, but not great.

Lenovo IdeaPad U310 Review: A Dorm-Room Ultrabook

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad U310 isn't the sexiest, sleekest Ultrabook out there, nor is it the most feature-packed. But it does come closer to what we expect an Ultrabook to be: attractive, light, and less than $800. The U310 comes in multiple colors, sports a...

Available in different colors ; Fairly loud speakers

Looks too much like the MacBook Pro ; Screen is dim

Inexpensive and available in bright colors, the IdeaPad U310 will most likely appeal to college students.

Review: Lenovo IdeaPad U310

 

Lenovo's refreshed U-series ultrabook is an improvement over last year's model, and it's much cheaper, too.

Awesome value, with solid performance. Trackpad problems resolved. Screen bezel notwithstanding, remarkably sturdy. Now available in pink

IdeaPad got fat. LCD remains dim, with washed out colors if you aren’t viewing head on. Still no keyboard backlighting

Sturdy build ; Excellent keyboard and trackpad ; Very pretty

Lenovo IdeaPad U310 review: $799 back-to-school ultrabook

 

Lenovo's affordable, MacBook-reminiscent 13-inch laptop is thin and light and has a large hard drive, adding up to what could be a very attractive package for a lot of students.

The ; offers up an attractive design and all the basic bells and whistles of a 13-inch ultrabook for $799, including plenty of USB ports and Ethernet.

The thicker, heavier design weighs a bit more than last year's U300s, and there aren't any SSD-only upgrade options.

The Lenovo IdeaPad U310 is an all-around decent ultrabook that's perfectly priced for back-to-school shoppers, but there are plenty of alternatives with nearly identically prices and features.

Lenovo U310 Review

 

The Ultrabook concept (ultrathin but powerful laptop) was introduced by Intel in 2011, and the first MacBook Air with default solid state storage came out in 2010. Since then, almost every major computer producer has come out with a thin [...]

The Lenovo U310 laptop is the first of a new breed of Ultrabook that’s a little chubbier and a tinch slower, but much more affordable. Every other major computer maker–Dell, HP, Sony–is going to have an Intel-certified Ultrabook at this price point...

Lenovo IdeaPad U310 Laptop Review

 

Affordable Ultrabook. Lenovo updates their sleek IdeaPad U300/U400 Ultrabook lineup with new Ivy Bridge-equipped IdeaPad U310/U410 models to take on the rest of 2012. Do the upgrades go beyond just the CPU and GPU changes?

Good CPU performance, Good SSD caching performance, Visually appealing chassis and strong base, Large and responsive touchpad, Easy-to-reach ports, Full-size HDMI and 10/100 RJ-45 ports, Low starting price, Although virtually untouched in terms of...
