Great for students

Date:November 23, 2011
Pros: Weight, Screen size, Display resolution, Battery, Keyboard/peripherals
Cons: Build Quality, Durability
"The main reason I decided on the U460 is the thin and lightweight design. My last laptop was brick compared to this one, and I was tired of lugging it around campus everywhere. Being only ~1 inch thick and 4 lbs, it's no burden bringing it to class/study sessions/coffee shops. I purchased the i3 processer version because it was cheaper and I'm not really playing games on it.
The only stupid thing about this laptop is fingerprint & face recognition security program is useless. It's just faster to type in my password than wait for it to recognize my face/fingerprint. I used it for the first month because it was cool but then got over it because it was a waste of time. I ended up just uninstalling the software. It's not that big of a deal though, just a waste of lenovo's efforts.
After owning it for a year, the battery life has decreased slightly. I don't think it ever reaches 5 hours even with low processing. It's closer to 3-4 hours instead. The fan used to be silent but I think the laptop gets hotter so the fan runs more often.
Otherwise I'm happy with the laptop for the rest of my college life.
Pros:
-light and easy to carry
-long battery life
-good display
-easy to use chicklet style keyboard
-easy to turn volume up/down & brightness up/down
Cons:
-no optical drive (but I don't really need it and it's worth the portability for me. although lenovo's newest release the ideapad u300/400 has an optical drive and is super thin & light)
-less sturdy build
-the mcafee software that came with the laptop interfered with my internet connection. it took me forever to figure it out

Excellent, Mobile Laptop

"I have had the U460 for almost a year and have been very pleased. I especially like to face recognition login and fairly fast startup time.
Occasionally the machine will crash, and I have to unplug it and remove the battery, then re-start it. This could be normal with Windows, however.
The only realy weakness I have detected is that the fingerprint reader is functionally unworkable. Furthermore, the Lenovo customer service was unable to diagnose the issue with it - that it does not read my fingerpint easily. So, I ended up sending it back to them twice before I figured out what was wrong. Consequently, I don't use the fingerprint reader - it is a waste of space on my machine."
