Very good keyboard, Stable performance under load
The ThinkPad Edge E431 may not be exciting, but it's a solid performer. It's a business-grade notebook with lots of power, excellent build quality, adequate battery life, and a strong keyboard. It's also quite durable and light enough (thanks to its ABS plastic frame) to fill a bag without overburdening its owner. The clever proprietary charging/OneLink Dock port design is also a nifty addition if you're frequently in search of better docking options.
Portable OneLink Dock, Good durability
The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 provides an impressive offering for its price. Starting at $500 (NBR's configuration was priced at $648) users will receive a durable attractive chassis, with excellent usability thanks to Lenovo's high quality keyboard and touchpad, along with ample performance capable of handling most business tasks with relative ease.
The only area where the E431 suffers is portability.
Excellent spill-resistant keyboard
The Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 isn't without its sacrifices, but with a starting price for a business laptop that starts at less than $550, that's to be expected. You'll have to pay extra for solid-state cache or storage. And you'll have to live without a touchscreen, HD resolution, or backlit keys. And the screen's color and contrast washes out quickly if you aren't sitting dead center.
Large screen on a budget
Calling the Dell Inspiron 17R a desktop replacement is a little unfair, since it's not really in the league of the performance desktops that dominate the category. The Inspiron 17R is a solid machine if you're looking for a large screen on a budget, but you have to be aware that it won't perform like similarly sized machines, such as the Origin EON17-S, or the Alienware M17x.
Does what I need it to
I bought this pc mainly because I ditched cable recently and needed a pc with a powerful processor to be able to convert and transmit streaming video to my roku box. The older model compaq that I had simply wasn't getting the job done but this beast does it without a hitch. The 17" screen is beautiful and the colors look great. It's really light and built sturdy and thus far i've had no issues with it.
Very keen price, Good screen for multimedia
The Dell Inspiron 17R isn't the notebook to go for if you need a true road warrior machine. It's too large and heavy, with merely mediocre battery life. But if you're after a system for general usage that is particularly good for group audiovisual presentations, even away from the mains socket, this is a serious contender.
Very good display, Good program performance
Buyers of the HP Envy dv6-7202eg receive a powerful multimedia notebook packed to the brim with modern technology. This laptop can complete any task with ease and look good while doing it. We especially like the high contrast Full HD display with great viewing angle stability and matte surface. The packet will set you back around 1,199 Euros (~$1570) - a high price, but there are alternatives.
High Resolution Display, Hybrid Hard Drive and Blu-ray Drive
HP's Envy laptops may lack their distinctive styles that set them apart from the companies other consumer laptops but it still offers a solid experience for those looking at an all around laptop. It features some strong performance that lets it do well in pretty much but it still isn't quite as suited for dedicated gaming as other laptops. The only other bit of disappointment was the storage which isn't quite as fast as ultrabooks with their dedicated SSD cache rather than hybrid solutions.
Great Business Computer
This is a great computer for business just because of one feature alone, the finger print reader. I like this alot, you can have it "read" any one of your 10 fingers. I suggest at least two, one on each hand in case you can't use one of the hands.
That said this is a nice laptop. The keys are easy to press and quiet. Mine luckily came with Windows 7, I had reviewed Windows 8 (W8) at a large retailer with the initials B.B. I was not impressed with W8.
Stable, well-manufactured aluminum case
Lenovo's IdeaPad U410 leaves us with a kind of love-hate feeling after the test. It is not surprising since Lenovo devices sway between ingenuity and chaos much too frequently.
We are awed by the low price, the design, the feel, the good input devices (extremely good touchpad!) and the impression it makes during use. Lenovo does a lot of things right with the aluminum finish and the rounded edges that a Macbook user would wish for after a long typing session.
Huge Storage Capacity, Dedicated Graphics Processor
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. At least the system retains the excellent keyboard and trackpad designs that make it comfortable to work with.
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.
When I first got this laptop there was a problem after a few weeks so I asked for an exchange. They sent me a brand new one the next day! Great service. As for the laptop, I love it! Especially it's light weight. I don't like iMACs but I do like their laptop design and THIS Lenovo laptop has almost the same design PLUS a home and end key which MACs don't have. The only down side to this laptop is that there's no DISC drive and it's slightly flimsy on the bottom and the center of the keyboard.
Great price, Ivy Bridge CPU
There are an abundance of Ultrabooks hitting the market at the moment and a clear trend seems to be emerging.
Manufacturers are having to make the decision between substance and style, between practicality and desirability, and are having to pitch their products into an ever-evolving market with an ever-expanding range of price points.
Well-designed, sturdy and has plenty of power
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.
As a multimedia machine, it's solid. You'll also be able to play games, as the discrete graphics have sufficient punch to drive this laptop at its reasonably modest display resolution.
Low cost Ultrabook that feels cheaper than it looks
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.
Do not buy this computer
I did NOT buy this computer off amazon. I bought it at my local computer store but I decided the only way I could help someone else not make this mistake of a computer purchase is to put a review on Amazon. After only having owned this computer a year I suddenly could not get it to even turn on. I took it back to the store where I purchased it and they knew exactly what the problem was as they had fixed 6 computers just like mine.
Overall, this laptop has exceeded my expectations; the 6GB memory is exceptional, the i3 is fast enough for graphic work and programs were easy to install, media player runs beautifully, 750GB HD gives room to maneuver, and the screen is awesome! I am more than pleased with this purchase.
Contrast-rich display, Decent gaming performance
The Pavilion g6-2200sg is a good deal and a decent notebook for all looking for a cheap general purpose notebook. It delivers fair system performance, which suffices for most users, works quietly under low load and comes with a contrast-rich display. Furthermore, the Pavilion is also interesting for gamers who do not like to spend 800 to 1000 Euro ( $1050 to $1300) for a fancy gaming computer.
Great monitor for the price
I bought two of these for my new PC build, I am a student so i wanted a dual monitor setup so i could do research on one screen while writing on the other and i must say i am very happy with these. Screens look great and again if your looking for a dual monitor setup that wont break the bank these are a nice option.
Build Quality, Battery, Price
The HP Pavilion g6 is a good budget notebook. While there aren't a ton of standout features and extras, it also doesn't have any major issues. Budget notebooks need to cut corners somewhere to come in at an affordable price and HP chose the right places to trim when they made the g6. Students and average home users in need of an affordable notebook should look at the g6, especially as part of back to school and Black Friday promotions.
Good interfaces, Quiet
Lenovo offers an entry-level computer for a low price with the IdeaPad G580-MBBG3GE. Those who are looking for a laptop for typing and that handles all types of Internet communication and can play most video formats will be on the safe side with the IdeaPad G580-MBBG3GE. An alert consumer will have noticed that this conclusion is very similar to the one about the Lenovo G585.
Cool Casing, Low consumption, Excellent battery life
The question from the introduction can be easily answered at this point: with the G585, Lenovo offers a promising office notebook. The term "netbook in XL" hits the bullâ?? s eye. The buyer gets a cheap notebook, which has a long battery life, is quiet and cool, and also consumes very little energy. For such features, one usually has to spend way more money. The good keyboard should be highlighted once more as well, something that should not be taken for granted in such a cheap notebook.
Lenovo G585 is a surprising laptop bargain
I'm very satisfied with the performance thus far. It is also my first experience with Windows 8, but I'm picking up on it pretty quickly. The G585 is working very well with it. Sure, speed could always be increased, but I'm stepping out of an ACER netbook. Anything is going to feel like lightning to me.
