Lenovo ideaPad U410 Ultrabook Review- A keeper








Lenovo has been on a role with its IdeaPad line. We previously saw how versatile the Lenovo U310 was in our review, but today we are taking a look at its bigger brother the Ideapad U410 ultrabook; which is a 14.1 inch ultrabook that weights in at 4lbs. The suystem I tested here house an Intel Core i5 processor( 1.7Ghz), 8Gb of Ram, 32Gb mSSD & 500GB HDD, Nividia 610M GPU + Intel HD GPU, HD webcam and a 4 cell battery. The Lenovo IdeaPad also Includes 2.0 stereo speakers with Dolby certification so you can bring the Dolby cinematic sound experience to
your PC. Dolby’s software will give you total control over your audio settings.

The U410 comes with a cool feature for quick startups called the Intel Smart Response Technology, which delivers SSD-like performance at minimal incremental costs compared with full SSD solution. The U410 implements this technology by combining the 32GB mSSD with its larger 500GBHDD drive. with the GeForce 610M dedicated graphics, not only do you get improved graphics performance, but you get great battery life with NVIDIA’s Optimus technology. This technology intelligently switches between the high-end and integrated graphics chipsets depending on what applications you are using.Lenovo One Key Recovery is an easy-to-use application used to backup the data on a system partition and then quickly restore it if needed. If Windows is no longer operational, the OneKey Rescue System button (shown below) on the side of the U410 can be used to restore the system. It can also be accessed from Windows through the OneKey Recovery software

Overall I was tremendously impressed with the overall performance of the U410, the system was able to handle all I threw at it, from video editing to gaming on the device. The device also give up to 5hr 30 ins of battery life which is suitable for an ultrabook. The tested build is priced at $799 and that is a great price point for an ultrabook of its capabilities. I definitely will recommend the Lenovo IdeaPad U410 as a keeper Ultrabook!!!

  • Yeah, u410 was a really nice machine. I've used it every day on about 5,5 years (programming, i3 based model). Battery still about 70% capacity, ubuntu works about 4-5 hours in active mode (disabled nvidia graphics via bios). Repairing is simple – all parts can be found on aliexpress. Just a miracle.

  • Hi. I'm a graduate student and I'm looking for a light laptop that I can easily carry around without compromising the performance.. I also need high specs and a lot of storage room. Since I've had a Lenovo Thinpad for like 5 years and it's been legendarily durable, I will go for one of Lenovo Ultrabooks this time too, but I can't choose between U410 and Flex 14 D.. Any tips or advice? Thanks a lot.

  • I bought this Laptop last year and broke the hinge that screws into the lcd by the normal use while closing the laptop. I can assure you that the plastic thing on the lcd screen that joins the hinge in the base broken within an year and lenovo asks you to pay more than the price of laptop to repair even within the warranty period. Lot of people had experienced such a worse experience and lost money with this. For a good configuration within the cheap price they have compromised on the material which spoils the entire laptop in an year. Do not recomment for any one. Worse customer care experience from lenovo too. Dont buy this product if you need your laptop working for more than 12 months.
