With a combination of portability, higher-resolution screen, great day-to-day performance, storage space, and decent port selection, the Lenovo U430 Touch easily bests the former Editors' Choice ultrabooks, the Asus VivoBook S400CA-UH51 and the Acer Aspire M5-481PT-6644. If you want portability and a decent price, then the Lenovo U430 Touch is our recommended choice. It takes over as the new Editors' Choice for entry-level ultrabooks.

Source: PC World English
The Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch is on the heavy side for an Ultrabook, weighing in at 4.2 pounds, but it’s well made and very attractive, and its battery lasted for a full 6 hours, 38 minutes in our tests. It’s a terrific value at $700.

Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch VerdictThe 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 undercutting the competition by at least $100.

Comment

In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.
