5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding for the price 5 Oct 2013
By Dom
Style Name:Core i5-3337U, 6GB, 750GB HDD|Verified Purchase
I was a bit nervous about buying this, but read some reviews online and thought it was probably the best option for the money. So far I'm loving it. It's not perfect, but I think it's outstanding for the money.

The screen isn't the best in the world - it's absolutely fine, but it's not as vivid or clear as some other, much more expensive, devices that I've played with. It would be nice if it were touch-enabled, too, but to be completely honest the touchpad is excellent so it's not the end of the world.

The keyboard takes a little getting used to as well - the keys are well-spaced and backlit, but the travel is very short. Although this feels a little odd to begin with, if you're a touch typist (which I am), the short travel actually makes typing a lot faster. There's enough feedback to know if you've hit the key or missed it, and, compared to many laptop keyboards I've used, it's relaxing to type on. But it won't be to everyone's taste.

The battery - which I'd read wasn't very good - is lasting me around 5 hours on a charge. That's at 50% or so screen brightness, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on, and doing light tasks (word processing, mind-mapping, emails, web browsing). Personally I think this is pretty good, but I know a lot of people seem to expect 10 hours from a laptop nowadays!

Build quality is fine - it's no MacBook Air, but it's significantly cheaper. Yes, it's made of plastics, but no, it doesn't feel stupidly cheap. It feels solid and well-built, while retaining the admirable Ultrabook qualities of thinness and lightness. It really is easy to carry around all day.

The machine feels responsive and speedy. I think the i5 processor and SSD drive help a lot with that, as does the 6gb of RAM.

5.0 out of 5 stars exactly what I needed! 11 April 2013
Style Name:Core i5-3337U, 6GB, 750GB HDD
I looked at this laptop for ages as I wanted to be sure... I was looking for something fast and could cope running programmes that I needed for work. The battery lasts for a good while, usually about 5hours. The laptop loads in about 30seconds. An excellent laptop.

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy with the U940 3 Jan 2014
Style Name:Core i5-3337U, 6GB, 750GB HDD|Verified Purchase
Good lightweight laptop at a competitive price.

Mouse pad is a but big making it difficult to type without moving cursor, however using an external mouse and turning off pad resolves this. Otherwise very happy with the laptop

5.0 out of 5 stars Good enough 11 Mar 2014
Style Name:Core i3-3227U, 4GB, 500GB HDD|Verified Purchase
It is compact, nice texture, solid and upgradable.
I recommend it it all sorts of students. It would be better if it had microsoft office of windows 8.1 or pro.
