First I had the common WiFi issue (for mediocre WiFi networks, the connection is terribly slow), for which Lenovo has always refused liability, claiming that it is a software related issue that can be solved with drivers; it cannot! However, I tend to work in environments with strong WiFi networks so that issue, although disappointing, was still manageable.
Now, the left hinge of the cover of my Lenovo is broken. As a result, the Laptop cover hardly closes/opens without ruining the screen, so I'm forced to use my lightweight ultrabook as a stationary desktop. There is a whole thread on this issue on the Lenovo forum (https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-U-and-S-Series-Notebooks/Re-Lenovo-Ideapad-U410-and-U410-Touch-broken-hinge-cover/td-p/1795447/page/23) with hundreds of people who have the exact same problem, and an explanation of the faulty design that will inevitably lead to broken hinges, however careful you treat your laptop.
Instead of admitting their mistake and offering their customers an appropriate solution, Lenovo hides behinds aggravatingly slow responses, intransparency, and a whole spectrum of lousy excuses. I'm telling you, if you want to lose faith in humanity, go through one of those supposed ''customer support'' threads on the Lenovo forums. Unfortunately, gathering angry customers in Lenovo moderated forums will not matter much; we should voice our discontent where it counts: at the retailer.
I'm contacting Lenovo personally with this issue as we speak. In case anything comes out of that, I will update this review
If you read a few more reviews, you can easily figure out that the WiFi is defective on these units to the point of being unusable 95% of the time. Both the connectivity and speed are incredibly bad.
There are no fixes for this issue. Doing things like replacing the driver will not solve the issue, and many people have sent their units in to Lenovo, only to have them returned in exactly the same state.
Bottom line is that if you ever intend to use WiFi, this is not a computer you should expect to use.
The bigger picture is that I can't imagine how a company views it as a good business practice (even for themselves and their shareholders) to continue to sell products that they and everyone else know are defective. At this point in time, it means that not only will they never have repeat customers, but they've now alienated entire Twitter and Facebook followings of customers who fell into this trap.
