"I got my Ideapd U450P through Costco so it's a bit cheaper then from the site. This is probably the best laptop I've owned thus far, it's light and super cute. The etched design is so neat and stylish. I love Windows7 on it and the face scan thing you have to do to log into the laptop in place of a password."
"I've had this laptop for a while and am very pleased with it.
Pros: -It's a light 14" laptop with an interesting design and feels very durable. -The display is very vibrant and has no problems displaying images. -The battery is very compact and last just as long as the big 9-cell battery on my old laptop. -Low heat. The laptop heats up only a bit when I regularly use it to surf the net, no where near the level of heat that my old Sony laptop gave off. -I have rarely had any technical problems where the computer froze up.
Cons: -The position of the Fn and Ctrl keys on the left are switched compared to most other computers, so it gets confusing for me when I need to use the school computers and start pressing the wrong key. -The touchpad is pretty sensitive so it becomes a problem when I brush against it when I'm typing stuff. No idea how to turn down the sensitivity, so if there is such a way then it wouldn't be such a big deal to me.
All in all, this is a great computer and am very glad I bought it."
"I bought the IdeaPad U450P because of the innovative "cross-hatch" finish which eliminates fingerprinting, and the high definition LCD display. I found many other features to like, such as the multi-touch keypad which allows me to expand the monitor view quickly with the keypad, as well as a comfortable easy-to-type keyboard. The battery lasts a long time with one charging, and the computer is extremely lightweight, even with the built-in CD/DVD player. I have a desktop computer at home but find myself using the Lenovo laptop more often at home for the convenience of using it in any room in the house."
Cons: Keyboard/peripherals, bit too nouveau exterior pattern, keyboard not as solid as on other business leonovo
"I bought a dell inspiron 14R before, but I was not happy with how clunky and thick it was. I saw this item and purchased it and i have to say its a great laptop with 320gb drive and clocks in at under 5 pounds with an optical drive! The screen is great and the battery life is good if not great. My only quibble is the textured exterior is a bit too trendy for me but that is a small quibble. Basically you get all the functionality of an apple macbook pro, for half the price."
