Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by very easy to use Very Happy with the purchase. Set up was straight forward, although it pushes you towards internet explorer, rather than Goggle, this is easily resolved. 13 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Really bad wifi connection This laptop looks and feels lovely. Everything about it feels good but the wifi connection is horrible. I live in a one bed flat with the router in the middle room, no other items have difficulty connecting but this laptop will not connect unless it is sitting directly beside it. I will be returning it on Monday. I am particularly disappointed as I asked advice from the staff in the Oxford Street store and both people I spoke to recommended this item. I wonder if they are trying to move the stock? 21 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Have no complaints! I like this ultrabook, not too heavy. I like the screen size I ordered grey/silver but received orange, and actually like the colour - it is unlikely to get misplaced! It doesn't take too long to start up much better than my previous laptop (it was old) and I find this easy to navigate. My husband did the initial set up but Windows 8 is fine. Just like anything new It takes a little getting used to but that's life :-) The keypad is different to what I am used to but again it is just getting used to it. All in all I am very happy with my Ultrabook and not likely to change it in the near future. 03 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Laptop I have been looking for so long a solid laptop and couldn’t find anything I was looking for by different electrical shops until I visited John Lewis shop and it was indeed a Bingo, I felt like I won a prise. I bought this laptop for my children so that they can work on their study and this offers everything they need for their study and social life and the speed they are looking for as well. Also, I felt in love with this laptop as it is light and the colour was really very unique. Weld done Lenovo and thank you John Lewis for bringing this laptop on your shelves with reasonable price and affordable for your customers. 28 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A cure for Macbook Air envy! I had been suffering form deep envy of my daughter's Macbook Air. However I am a PC man with zero interest in moving to Apple. This utrabook is the same size and weight and has the same processor. However the touch screen on the Lenovo is great for reading the paper and you can switch the keypad illumination on and off! A great laptop - the best I have ever owned (and I've had a few!) Cannot fault it so far. 09 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic I was a little unsure about purchasing this laptop due to the lack of information about it on the internet. Could not find it in any shops either to have a look at it before purchasing. Seems to only exist on the Levono website and at John Lewis. I am incredibly happy with the computer. It has a great keyboard, its very quick and has a fantastic metal case/body. Screen is great. It feels really well built and has long battery life. I was looking at a Samung ATIV 9 Lite prior to purchasing this but was put off by low RAM, small HDD and much slower processor. A fantastic laptop at a great price. Good service as always from JL. 30 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good but with a reservation Bought an i5 version from Amazon - good value. Very impressed with the build quality. I like things that have a quality feel and the U330 has that in spades. Came with Windows 8 but support pages say that it is capable of running 8.1 and so I upgraded. Initially when the screen went to sleep it couldn't be woken without a hard reset. Updating the device drivers seems to have resolved this but there are other people in the Lenovo forum who have been less successful. I think that there are general issues around sleep mode with 8.1 and so this isn't necessarily a Lenovo thing but it need to get resolved or there will be a lot of returned units. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase but await a fix to the sleep issue and I suppose I'l get used to the Window 8/8.1 interface. 01 December 2013
