Engadget Summary

With the IdeaPad U430 Touch, Lenovo makes few compromises in pursuit of an affordable Ultrabook. The U430 might be a cheaper alternative to higher-end laptops, but the look hasn't suffered thanks to its "attractive all-aluminum design," according to Laptop Magazine. However, PC World says its weight of four pounds places it on the "heavy side" of the Ultrabook class. The display may only run 1600 x 900 pixels, but it more than makes up for the sub-par resolution with excellent battery life and performance, with PC Mag getting a "class-leading" seven hours during their rundown tests and performance that "shines brightly." Coming in under $700, the Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch is a good choice for someone who primarily browses the web but needs to be productive once in a while.
