Product Review: Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch 14” Ultra Book

This is a review for a new 14 inch Touch Screen Ultra Book we purchased from Best Buy.  It is a Lenovo IdeaPad U430. We purchased this as a package deal from Best Buy’s Deal of the Day with a Lenovo Windows 8 Tablet. It’s original price is $829.99 we got it as the package deal with the tablet for $699.99.
I have not used this device much but did do the initial setup and updated it to Windows 8.1. In the short time I used it, it seemed more then adequate, it was very responsive and stable. I have to mention that the specs of this device are better than average, this is one of the reasons we snatched this Deal of the Day up. Here a few that caught my attention:
Processor: Intel Haswell Core i7-4500U Dual Core 1.8 MHz-3.0 MHz
Memory:  4Gigs
Hard Drive: Hybrid 8Gig/500Gig (For even faster boot times, Windows 8 is fast anyways)
Dragon Voice Control
Backlit Keyboard
I also have to mention that the build of this particular ultra book,with it’s polished aluminum chassis, sets it apart form other price comparable units.
Overall my wife is the main user and she has had absolutely no complaints, other than the learning curve of the new operating system. You know the saying, if Momma is happy, then everyone is happy!! It is a rock solid unit, from it’s components to it’s case.
