    Rated 4 out of 5?by 28 reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5?by Decent Computer This computer is pretty nice. The graphics are good and it is very portable. It also can upload things pretty well. However the battery doesn't last more than 4 hours, the touch pad is extremely finicky, and it heats up after an hour of using it. The cd drive is hard to use too. I would recommend this to people who are on a tight budget. It is a decent computer but it does have it faults. January 19, 2013
    Rated 2 out of 5?by Lenovo is not IBM I buy this U400 in a pretty good price, for its nice looks, slim design, all metal shell, and Lenovo brand. The machine is so far so good, but I must say the dvd slot driver is too bad, even a brand-new dvd disc is hard to be read, and the windows system stop response and keep trying to read the dvd, there is no emergency eject hole on this slot dvd driver, so several time I have to reboot, make me disappoint, total a junk dvd driver. another problem, every time I use the U400, whenever I plug in AC or use the battery, the battery indicator is always light, is this a problem? November 14, 2012
    Rated 1 out of 5?by Do not buy this computer I bought this computer because I've always been a fan of lenovo thinkpads and wanted something that was more portable and nicer looking. I thought the u400 might be a great fit. Although it LOOKS nice, this computer is such a piece of junk. First of all, don't ignore all the reviews that mention how funky the touch pad is. It's very bizarre and unresponsive! When I have a friend using my computer, they always hand it back to me because they can't manage to get the mouse to scroll where they need to. For a while after buying this computer, I continued to use my old thinkpad to do all my work and web browsing because it was so painful to use this computer for simple tasks. Imagine how annoyed I was after paying close to 1k for this computer that I thought would be an "upgrade". Second, and this is the problem I'm having right now, the computer has major internet connectivity problem. It doesn't connect, needs a lot of prodding in order to connect, and lately, Chrome and Firefox are both failing on this computer for some reason. If this computer were cheap or old, I guess I wouldn't be so annoyed, but the fact is, it's only half a year old, and ever since the first week I started using it, I was looking forward to the day that I can finally replace it. October 30, 2012
    Rated 2 out of 5?by Not so good Heats up a lot after a few hours of use, dvd/cd's get stuck on drive, battery only lasts 2 hours and it came with a dead pixel on screen. Internal wireless antenna gets very weak signal. Mouse pad almost unusable something strange whit it. Display very glossy, if little light hits it impossible to read. Very hard to open up to change hd, almost impossible to do it without braking a few plastic peaces. October 18, 2012
