Lenovo IdeaPad U310 and U410 Ultrabooks pictures and hands-on
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Lenovo IdeaPads U310 and U410 are not the sexiest Ultrabooks on the market, but they're not really supposed to be. Last year's U300s is still top dog, but the point of launching these two at CES 2012 is to finally turn this class of computer into something that normal people might actually be willing to pay for.

Aluminum armor on the cheap (?). This statement does not necessarily apply to raw material prices. Lenovo is trying to bring top quality materials to the masses at nominal prices, as seen in the IdeaPad series. So, is investing in an IdeaPad U410 worthwhile for those interested in ultrabooks? We scrutinize Lenovo's 14-inch ultrabook and try to answer this question.
65% Lenovo IdeaPad U410 14in Ultrabook review
Source: Reg Hardware English
If you want a decent bit of hardware at a not-unreasonable cost, then you might consider the IdeaPad U410. However, despite the good features like the SSD cache I, feel that Lenovo has not delivered on what it claims, specifically in the battery department. Also, if you are spending more than £500 on a laptop, you'd expect it to actually feel worth the money. Alas, as a low cost Ultrabook, the build of the Lenovo IdeaPad U410 rather disappoints in this respect.

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 Review: Trying To Keep Up
Source: PC Perspective English
Ultimately, there’s nothing about the U410 which makes it stand out from the competition. It is not a bad laptop, but it is merely average. Lenovo needs to bring more to the table if it wants this 14-incher to catch consumer attention.

Overall, there's a lot to like about the design and build quality of the U410, from its carrying comfort to its excellent keyboard and touch pad. And its components are certainly up to the task of general computing and light aming.That said, the $800 ultrabook space is clogged with competition. Perhaps most notably, if you don't mind carrying a laptop that weighs a few ounces more, and think you might still need an optical drive now and again, we think Acer's Timeline Ultra M5 481TG-6814 sports a better balance of features for a slightly lower $779.

With the U410 being an Ultrabook it has some notable design specifications imposed on it and the key item is thickness. This 21mm thich machine offers a portable size and the weight is well balanced. We noticed no quality issues with the finish and each part joined to the next well. We did however note that there was more flex that we would like on the bottom panel but that shouldn't be an issue in normal use.

Lenovo's IdeaPad U410 does a good job of being useful in most situations, if you aren't looking to do some hardcore gaming or DVD/CD burning. It's hard to complain about the little things when this system shows such a vast improvement over the Lenovo ThinkPad U310 but manages to be the same price. For students who must keep a budget in mind but aren't willing to sacrifice too much power in their laptop, this is probably the perfect option. If you're looking for a laptop for back-to-school that's not too pricey, the Lenovo U410 is worth a close look.

We like the U410 a lot. It's well-designed, sturdy and has plenty of power. We have some slight concerns about the battery, and you certainly won't see Lenovo's quoted maximum of nine hours, not unless you cast some sort of power saving spell over it anyway.

One of the prime reasons for going to a larger ultrabook is for the display and graphics. The Lenovo IdeaPad U410 is mixed in this area as it does feature dedicated NVIDIA graphics but the 14-inch display panel leaves much to be desired. Lenovo does offer some amazing amount of storage space that rivals other ultrabooks but still keeps boot times fast.

The Lenovo IdeaPad U410 might not be the most slim or stylish ultrabook on the market, nor does it have the most impressive screen. But it's sturdily built and dishes out a decent helping of power for a reasonable price. If you need a laptop for general work on the go and don't intend to challenge it with highly demanding tasks then the U410 might be worth a look.

Under that arresting Ruby Red chassis, the $799 Lenovo IdeaPad U410 has a lot going for it. Packed with Ivy Bridge and discrete Nvidia graphics, this sub-$800 Ultrabook is a mobile powerhouse that will appeal to both consumers and business users alike. Those looking for greater graphics power should look at the $779 Acer Aspire TimelineU M5 481TG-6814, which also has better audio, a brighter display, and an optical drive -- but poor port placement.

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 (Intel Core i5, Ivy Bridge) Review
Source: Slashgear English
Okay, so the technophiles of the world probably won’t find much to get excited about with the IdeaPad U410, but this laptop will prove to be a good value for those who are more concerned with functionality than amazing specs. There are a few flaws, such as the shorter-than-expected battery life, but for the most part, average consumers who want a quality laptop will find a lot to love about the IdeaPad U410. The laptop’s Geekbench results reflect this – it definitely isn’t anywhere near the best, but it’s a solid computer that will meet the needs of most mainstream computers.

There are an abundance of Ultrabooks hitting the market at the moment and a clear trend seems to be emerging. But we think Lenovo has chosen wisely in the case of the U410, which is a brilliant machine that is perfectly suited to meet the demands of the digital media boom that we're in the midst of, with an extremely tempting price tag.

IdeaPad plus touch. Since the advantages of Windows 8 only really come to the fore with a touchscreen, Lenovo installs this operating system on its U410 Touch. The IdeaPad is rather conservative otherwise.

Lenovo has produced a really solid portable gaming machine, but it does feel like its focus on a strong GPU, RAM and hard drive have taken a toll elsewhere. The overall balance is definitely still in its favour, though. The final result may be more a light home machine than a road warrior's ideal Ultrabook, but this much power in this small a frame at this price means it's hard to contend with - warts and all.

Lenovo reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 610M: Entry level graphics card based on the older GeForce GT 520M or GeForce GT 520MX.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 710M: Entry level GPU of the 700M series based on the GT 620M.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


:

Intel Core i5:

3317U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.7 - 2.6 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

3337U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 1.8 - 2.7 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1100 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

Intel Core i3:

2377M: Power efficient ULV processor clocked at 1.5 GHz without Turbo boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 1000 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller.


14.0: 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.8 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

1.985 kg:


76%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
