Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad U410 Touch-59372989
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.
