Few questions about the Lenovo U410

Hello folks.. Have a few questions about the Lenovo U410 before i go purchase the machine, if you don't mind helping me out? :-)

How is this machine for surfing, programming and LIGHT gaming?
How is the keyboard (any bad flex?), the screen, the overall quality?
Is it better to turn off the Geforce 610M and just go with the Intel HD 4000?

I have read a bunch of reviews, but no-one really answered all these question on a user level. So I hope you can help me out with some inputs.

Kind regards,
aventic

  1. I think the GPU is not that good for gaming, an ultra book is not designed for demanding tasks it is targeted for portability.

    It is an ultrabook, I know the integrated GPU nor the dedicated GPU isn't that good at gaming, but I dont required anything else than low quality at that part, just want to play alittle when I'm sitting in the train etc, have a desktop computer at home I'm gaming on :)
  3. Hi :)

    We sold a few of these last year in my shops....

    Decent machine although a bit bigger than the new Ultrabooks... battery isn't great either....

    Quite a reasonable price though...

    All the best Brett :)

    What do you mean by battery isn't great :)? I mean they advertise with 9 hours battery life? Is it more like 5 hours or 3?
