A Lenovo ultrabook offers strong computing power in a compact package. The super-thin notebooks have functionality that is comparable to bulkier models, but their more compact design makes them perfect for users on the go. Lenovo notebooks are only an inch thick, making them convenient to carry anywhere.
The IdeaPad U410 packs impressive performance into a small frame. This ultrabook weighs 4.2 pounds and boasts a 14 inch screen. The 1366 by 768 LED display produces clear images and color quality.
IdeaPads also come with powerful webcams. The 1 megapixel cameras capture 1280 by 720 videos and photographs. Additionally, you can set up face recognition so you don't even need to type your password when logging in.
Cons: Single mic/headphone jack
Other Thoughts: This replaced a Toshiba P series that was an I-7. This is more solid than I expected with a great price point. Wifi has no issues. Very fast on boot and when I change networks.

A solid buy so far
Pros: Good build quality(one caveat: see cons)
Cons: The bottom plate is one solid piece of thinnish material and when pressed on lightly bends, making a clicking noise, not terrible but it might be a little annoying/ disconcerting.
Other Thoughts: There isn't a dedicated mic jack but I can't fault the laptop for that because I just didn't realize it prior to buying it. However there is a front facing mic and I've never really needed both ports on a laptop, and if I ever do I won't have a problem buying a cheapish one connector headset.

Good hardware, pain to customize
Pros: Hardware is very solid. No issues. Especially to note is the WiFi. Many users reported issues with WiFi connectivity on this and similar models, but I haven't had any issues yet.
Cons: -2 eggs for the pain I went through changing the default OS configuration.
Other Thoughts: Very good machine for the price. Although I see they raised they price by $200 to $849 since I bought it, it's still worth a look.

Pros: Fast processor, graphic performance decent for many games. Even High end games run at low settings.
Cons: Wireless adapter fails. Stays connected but has terrible dial up like speeds basically disabling the ability of any online gaming or downloading.
Other Thoughts: If if not for the terrible wireless adapter issue i would say this is a very nice laptop for the price.

Best Ultrabook for the Cost
Pros: -Great price point
Cons: - On the heavier side compared to other ultrabooks
Other Thoughts: I keep bringing up the price of this machine, because for the price I do not think you can find a better ultrabook, with the specs and features this packs. This is not a gaming laptop. It is not the thinnest ultrabook on the market. Its doesn't have the "umph" or "wow factor" that a true ultrabook, or powerhouse laptop would have. What this is a solid 4 egg machine, and very cost effective, well preforming computer.
