Lenovo IdeaPad U410 review: affordable and powerful Ultrabook

Core i7, 1 TB hard drive and 8 GB RAM

By ,


Introduction

When you're looking for a decent laptop then Lenovo is one of the brands to consider. The Chinese company that once took over IBM's Thinkpad product line is trying to get a foothold in the European market. They are bringing relatively big guns to accomplish this, such as this Lenovo Ideapad U410 Ultrabook that's available for £799.

For that price you get a pretty powerful and well-equipped Ultrabook. Most brands offer a Core i5 for the same price or even more, but Lenovo includes an energy-efficient Core i7 and 8 GB memory. And instead of the typical 500 GB hard drive you get a 1 TB version and even a dedicated graphics card by Nvidia. While it's just the GeForce 610, it's a nice "free" addition to even the basic package.

You get a lot for your money, which isn't strange considering Lenovo wants to gain a significant share of the market. They're already one of the bigger players, but they want to be the biggest. One of its tactics was the take-over of Medion last year, and another step was the hiring of Acer CEO Gianfranco Lanci. Lenovo means business.
