View Full Version : Advice for an Ultrabook
Oct 7, 2012, 06:57 AM
I am in need of a new laptop.
Would like to get a solid ultrabook but not break the bank.
Anyone have any experience with the Lenovo IdeaPad U410?
How is that compared to a standard MBP 13' and a MBA performance and price wise?

It performs worse than the 2012 13"MBA, but is considerably cheaper.
Do you want a Mac or PC ? If you want a cheap PC ultra book then it ticks the bill, but if you want OSX then it clearly doesn't.

I am not talking about the U310. I am talking about this U410

Well it seems to be fairly glowing reviews, with the only downside being the weight of the device.
But same comment as above applies
"Do you want a Mac or PC ? If you want a cheap PC ultra book then it ticks the bill, but if you want OSX then it clearly doesn't."
For the price an i7 & 8GB of ram is hard to argue with.
The only thing I would say is that if you can wait a few weeks would you not wait and see if when they stick Windows 8 on these devices if they will stick a touch panel in there for a similar pricing, and then even if your not interested in Windows 8, the pricing of the older Windows 7 devices may be reduced in stores and online...

You're comparing an Ultrabook to the MBP, are you looking specifically for an Ultrabook, or any kind of Notebook?

Looking for a sleek slim high performance laptop that is nicely priced.
I realize the MBP13 really isnt a ultrabook but I am also considering that as well.
Comparing specs & price ect
