Cons: Wireless card, Support, Warranty, Included Software
"I love the mobility and looks of this computer. When everything is working it is plenty fast and responsive. I have two problems with this notebook U310.
The first and somewhat minor is the trackpad. When browsing websites it is very easy to accidentally zoom in and out. It gets very annoying.
Number 2 and the major issue is the wifi card. Sometimes it connects to my wireless network and sometimes it doesn't. All my other devices work fine so its just this notebook. Really not cool! I have been on with Tech Support 3 times and have gotten three different answers that haven't worked. Tried to return it within the 21 day return policy, but now its too late only because I was trying all the unsucessful troubleshooting. Now I am stuck with this computer and can only send it away to maybe get fixed. Wish I could just return it at this point and get a refund."
"My sister and I both purchased the same computer about a year ago and at the beginning I was quite pleased with it except for some IMPORTANT DOWNERS (NOTE: this issues were found in BOTH computers): 1- Does NOT connect to WIFI well, heed the warnings, if you are in an area with slightly less than excellent wifi signal then you might not be able to connect. 2- Using several applications at the same time will definitely slow down the computer. 3- NOT ALL THE USB PORTS WORK After about a year now... I have only used it as much as the average college student uses their computer and I am not pleased at all.. it has slowed down considerably and constantly has a Kernel Data Inpage Error BASICALLY if you want a RELIABLE computer that will last at least FOUR YEARS... DO NOT BUY THIS ONE."
"I bought this laptop 3 months ago and am very pleased with it. Performance, I can't even tell how fast this laptop goes :)
The design is amazing and is really light, which is a big pro for me because I have to take my laptop everywhere I go. In fact, when I compare it's weight with my old ThinkPad Edge 14, I feel like I'm not even carrying it at all :)
I've read a lot about the WiFi issues and to be honest I've had a few problems with public WiFi not connecting properly, but the overall is GREAT!
I don't know if I can upgrade it's memory to 8GB though, I've read a lot of mixed thoughts about it :/"
"DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! This is the worst laptop among two dozen laptops I have used during the last 10 years. The hinge cracked just after half of a year's normal usage and I can't close the lid. If you google "U310 hinge problem", you will find other customers all over the world complaining about the same problem. Build quality is so poor. The customer service told me that the repair cost is about $500, although I only spent $640 for the laptop. This is a manufacturing defect and why do they want to charge to customers??? Lenovo products have significantly dragged down my good expectations and experience with thinkpad products. I will never buy another Lenovo product in the future. Don't waste your money at this product or you will feel regretful very soon."
Pros: Warranty, Included software, Durability, Memory, Build Quality, Storage
Cons: Keyboard/peripherals, Display performance
"I just bought this U310 touch screen about a week ago. I don't know how much you folks paid for it . I paid about XXXX..brand new but no choice on colors and its only a Core i3. I like the design and the solid feel of the whole thing.Pretty fast from sleep mode,about 8 seconds. So I hope I can use it for the next three years. Wifi is OK with mine.(30 to 35 kbps)as I have a super fast router.I think screen and keyboard are the weak points.But touchpad is one of the smoothest ever come across. Battery life is just over 4 to 5 hrs only. Really good value for the money I paid......."
