"I bought this U310 touch at the end of July 2013 and I found the performance with the i3 processor to increase the preformance alot. The RAM and the Hard Drive were nice. The things that I didnt like was the battery life. It says 4-5 hours in the store and I get an average of 3:15. My other problem was that the hinge on the back kept snapping. I really didnt like this and repair on it is still pending."

"I would like to write a proper review of this terrible device but Lenovo.com keeps telling me the text is too long so...I hope the fact that I can't write a review is a testament to the poor quality of Lenovo products and services."
"It is good, except: 1) The wifi has a very short reach. In spots where other laptops get a strong signal, the u310 does not even see the network! I fixed that by buying an external USB wifi dongle with an antenna. 2) The screen is quite dim. I can't use it outside, by the pool, even in the shade. Have to stay indoors...:( 3) Compared to my ASUS ultrabook, it takes forever to wake up when I open the lid. It is frustrating because it shows the login screen but many times it does not take the input until much later, so I might type the password fast when I think it is finally ready, and then get an error because it missed reading the first characters I typed..."
"I bought this computer in June 2013, and it broke in September 2013. It had Windows 8 installed and touch screen. Initially I liked it because it is lightweight and convenient to take to work with me.
About a month ago gradually started slowing down and started freezing constantly. Then it would not shut down or restart properly. Now, it is just sitting on my desk totally useless. I can't find my warranty card and my receipt, so I am stuck with a broken product.
I hope the Lenovo support people would be willing to take a look at it and figure out what is wrong with it. If they do and it works I will write another review."
Cons: Warranty, Wireless card, Included Software, windows 8
"Avoid this machine. I like all the functionality of the U310 touch, but find the wireless antenna to be frustratingly poor. There are plenty of discussion rooms addressing this problem so I know I am not alone. Lenovo took the machine back for service, but didn't fix the problem.
My previous laptop was a Lenovo Think Pad which was a work horse and never had a wireless problem.I don't get how wireless technology can go backwards with one manufacturer.
I am grateful for the quality of customer service and support from the manufacturer, but they clearly don't have a solution."
"I actually was upset when I had to return the laptop mainly for the WiFi issue. The laptop had its flaws but WiFi is the major draw back. The screen is kind of flimsy, so be careful when you use the touch screen. The webcam is not the best but it is doable. There is A LOT of glare. It was really annoying when I had the laptop. The touchpad responded slowly, wasn't really quick. Also the battery life isn't that great.
If you do buy this laptop, which I do not recommend, keep in mind you may return it for the WiFi problem. I returned mine in two days, I couldn't stand it."
"I got this laptop at a FANTASTIC price and it is much more portable and easy to use than my 2 year old $1200 hp. The weight and touchscreen are great and storage isn't an issue since all of my information is on an external; I only have programs on the computer itself. But here's where it all crumbles: like others have said the WiFi is HORRIBLE. I have to almost literally sit next to my wifi router. With my old laptop, I could walk out to my car on the street and I could still use the internet."
Cons: Storage, Display resolution, Memory, Keyboard/peripherals, no back-lit keyboard
"I love this laptop but i really wish the screen res was higher, and a back-lit keyboard. Also the keyboard has a little bit to much flex, enough to make it noticeable. but beside all that i love the design!!! All the looks and style of a mac book pro but not that hefty price tag for the same performance. also i don't like the Operating systems of a mac. The memory issue i have is not that its small but that the factory doesn't offer a upgrade option for maxing the ram?or the HHD or making it a SSD completely."
"I recently purchased this laptop and was nervous about spending so much money since I just graduated from college and do not have a steady income yet, but the laptop was worth every penny! The touch screen is very responsive and convenient to use with Windows 8. I absolutely love the keyboard. It is appealing and comfortable. In addition, the size of the computer is perfect. My last laptop was 17", and was too big and heavy to take places, so it just sat on my desk. This laptop is light and small enough to travel with, yet is large enough to type on with ease. I highly recommend the U310 Touch - it's a great machine!"
"I've gone through a few laptops and i have to say the U310 touch is the best ultrabook I've used! Super sturdy yet still light weight. Quiet but still fast processing. And the best part I like so far is the response from the touch screen, no issues whatsoever."
