Cons? The UEFI BIOS can cause issues if you decide to reinstall your OS and aren't careful. The screen isn't the greatest. The resolution is perfectly adequate but it starts to look washed out at anything below 50% brightness if you're outdoors. The included Intel WiFi 7260-N card is not the dual-band variant; I haven't run into any reception issues as a result, but it's worth noting.
-Great battery life
-Great heat management due to fan placement
-Sleak and beautiful design
-Backlit keyboard thats very comfortable
-Very light and thin
-I7 makes this machine work wonders
-Contains use 3.0 USB
-strong hinge so it seems to be quite durable compared to other laptops
- Speakers are OK but not the greatest
- The mousepad randomly freezes for short periods of time then fixes itself (using the touch screen will fix the issue if you dont feel like waiting a few minutes) do note that I believe this is a Windows 8 issue
-brightness is not the best on this device so using it outside in the daylight might not be the greatest...
-SD cards do not go inside the device all the way they only go in halfway
Overall I recommend this laptop to anyone and for the price I would consider it to be one of the best bargins you can possibly get! If you have any questions I would be glad to answer them.
After about a month and a half with my U430, I'm mixed on my purchase. While the display resolution is a notch up from comparable ultrabooks in this price range, this isn't really noticeable to me because of the generally washed out colors, and worse, the very shiny, reflective monitor that make the computer very annoying to use in all but dark environments. After a few hours on the computer, my eyes feel worn and tired from all the glare. Another issue is this model's continuous scroll function, where the mouse continues to scroll when I move my fingers into the top or bottom of the mousepad. I don't know how to disable this function, and it makes scrolling extremely annoying. I have to keep my fingers within a narrow area of the mousepad when scrolling or the page will quickly scroll away. I would also say that the mousepad is far less responsive than the mousepad on the MacBook Air (which my girlfriend owns). Perhaps this is an unfair comparison because these two computers are in different price ranges, but like the issues with the display/monitor and the continuous scroll that I note above, I think basic hardware and computer functions should not be noticeable issues in a mid-level computer from a manufacturer like Lenovo. I would also say that this computer feels heavier than the 4-point-something pounds that is listed in the specs.
On the plus side, the machine works fast, feels solid, is thin, and the battery keeps a long charge (5-7 hours depending on energy settings). The keyboard is also very comfortable to use. I also like that the RAM and hard disk are upgradable for when I have the budget to do that.
Overall, a nice machine that I'm liking more as I get used to it, but a machine that I don't feel really psyched to have, either now or over the next 4 or 5 years.
