Business notebooks aren't always affordable -- Lenovo aims to change that with its V-series IdeaPad. Today we look at the V460, which has a 14-inch display, Intel Core i5 processor and comes in under $800.
Our Lenovo IdeaPad V460 has the following specifications:
The specifications are slightly less than expected for this price range, however this review will show whether the promised "good build" quality makes up for the gap.
The IdeaPad V460 has a stylish professional look which is at home in nearly any environment. The chassis and lid are covered in finely brushed aluminum, which not only feels great, but adds strength. The V460 weighs in at 4.85 lbs, which is slightly more than usual for a 14-inch notebook. The chassis is relatively thin with an average height of about one inch. The V460's build quality is above average for its price range. Grabbing the two front corners of the chassis and twisting produces minimal flex. The chassis surface is rigid and does not bend under pressure thanks to the aluminum.
Ports and Features
The V460 has an average selection of ports. An ExpressCard slot is included though it lacks USB 3.0 and eSATA.
