  • Ask an Owner

    Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the U430 Touch

    1. Sam asked on
      Can I use the U430 Touch (or non touch) for gaming. Either processor (i5 or i7) but obviously I'd prefer the least expensive. Please bare in mind it wouldn't be used for heavy gaming. Just a couple of games a day for an hour overall, medium or above settings preferably.
      1. Matej replied on
        I play with i7 League of Legends all on high with over 130fps, however graphic card helps which is GeForce GT 730M. It is only game I play therefore I'm happy.
      2. Jonathan replied on
        It'll be pretty good for gaming, but not absolutely amazing. i7 will definitely get better performance, but for casual gaming the i5 should suffice.
    2. Kristina asked on
      Are these laptops older than 2 years? Manufactured.
      1. SEB replied on
        Mine was manufactured June 2015 (purchased December 2015)
    3. Tintin asked on
      Firstly, can I change the language of the operating system to Chinese? I am a student in the UK and will go back to China someday. So I would prefer to use a Chinese operating system.
      Secondly, this one is equipped with windows 8.1. If updated to the latest windows 10, would it be still smooth to use?
      1. Rod replied on
        Q1: You can ADD the following languages of the operating system:
        Chinese (simplified) and/or Chinese (traditional)

        Q2: Yes.
    4. Ravi asked on
      Would this be a good laptop to use whilst you're in bed? As in fast, capable of low brightness, quiet, good battery and doesn't overheat? Thanks!
      1. Matt replied on
        I take it everywhere and anywhere, it's quite, you can turn the backlight on keyboard and battery lasts several hours so all good. No overheating in my case.
    5. Grace asked on
      I'm looking for a laptop that can handle photoshop and illustrator without getting slow or overheating (like my current one does). I'm considering getting a macbook but these look good.
      Would you recommend for demanding software?
      1. Dennis replied on
        I use mine for woprk. I run multiple applications at once and it stays reliable. I will defintely buy another once its time to reinvest. They are excellent pieces of kit
      2. Jonathan replied on
        Yeah, it's pretty good, although ideally you'd want a core i7 rather than a core i5, but if you can't afford that an i5 is pretty good.
    6. asked on
      Reviews identify the mouse pad as a 'problem' to use, or is it something different / new that needs to get used to?

      Are the keyboard keys backlit illuminated, so it can be used in bad lighting?
      1. Nick replied on
        There are no mouse buttons as such, instead you press the trackpad down at the edges. It is quite easy to gt used to.

        Keyboard is illuminated and that is well implemented. However the keyboard in general is awful and it is difficult to type with any fluency. Not recommended.
    7. Alex asked on
      What's the WiFi like?
      1. Rod replied on
        I don't think the WiFi has anything to do with the capability/use of the U430 per se. I have a standard WiFi network connection which, because of the thick walls in the house, gives poor reception in parts of the house remote from the modem but this overcome very successfully by installing Devolo receivers. The U430 copes extremely well with the changing Networks. By the way, the U430 is a fantastic computer.
    8. Alex asked on
      Does the U430 and the U430 Touch still have the issue where the hinges fail after a year? Thats the only thing putting me off buying one, any idea what the returns/warranty is like on these?
      1. Jonathan replied on
        We've not had any problem like that, and we've bought several of them, the oldest being almost a year and a half old.
