"As far as laptops go it's a decent machine. It's light weight fairly durable, and the touch screen is fun with windows 8.
cons: a common problem (but not common according to lenovo tech support) is that the hinge separates and starts pulling apart the casing in the back. this is not covered by warranty.. you've been warned! the wifi is low quality and if there is a weak signal, then it wont connect, or will keep kicking you off. performance is ok. the ssd doesnt seem to help performance at all.
overall i've been pleased, but there have been a few deal breakers."
"I have contacted Lenovo about my slow wifi speeds, lack of wifi connection and overall slow performance of this computer. They say it is my internet connection and refuse to refund my money or replace my computer. I purchased this laptop at the end of January (Less than 3 months ago) It is slower than my 7 year old Toshiba Satellite. This laptop will not connect to wifi unless you are with in 5 feet of the router, even then speeds will be significantly lower or constantly drop connection."
"This laptop was mostly great. But its hinge came apart, which over days led to wires peeking out and the screen popping off. It was never dropped or mistreated. An acquaintance of mine who had a U310T also had a similar issue - there must be a serious design flaw here. Lenovo customer support is alright, however, and they are resolving this, so I wouldn't avoid this company. Just this ultrabook.
Other than the defect, I was happy with it. I don't need a computer for anything too fancy. It has great battery life, gorgeous design, lightweight, fast. Occasionally it dropped my wireless connection, but that was a rare occurrence (1/wk, max). Lenovo computers have the best keyboards."
"My first touchscreen laptop and I am still in love with it! Excellent touchscreen. Lightweight. Durable. Fell down once from chair yet no damage. Sleek design. Some of my colleagues still drool over it.
The touchpad however is moody. I get annoyed when I try to scroll down a page but instead the page zooms in/out.
The screen/lid opens to a 100 degree angle max which is frustrating. I owned a Dell E6400 before which I could lay flat open to 180 degrees.
Its wifi is not as great as its competitors. I have seen 5year old laptops with much better wifi. But you shouldn't worry if your wifi router is not too far off at home/workplace.
Overall: an affordable ultraportable machine that is worth its price."
"The battery lasts only 1 hour and a half. Since I got my computer, the keyboard feels loose, there's nothing wrong, the plastic is just not strong enough, I guess... I have my laptop now for about 2 months and I already had to reboot him! He was totaly crashed. The windows 8 is unreliable. The audio sometimes just doesn't work, he needs almost every week a update, he frequently just doesn't respond for a few moments, and it's sometimes complicated in use. The Wifi sometimes just stops working, and there's nothing you can do about it. I would highly recommand you to buy another laptop. greetings"
"I am a high school student who was looking for a lap top to be able to write papers and search the web with ease, as well be able to carry from home to school. Once I got the computer it worked great! Didn't come with much downloaded but was easy to get everything on that I needed like word. Computer very easy to set up and figure out on your own for the most part. Have had some issues with sound speakers, but that's my only real complaint. Computer can get heavy after awhile but that's bound to happen. Very long battery life. Also no backlight to keyboard so hard to work in the dark."
"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."
