No red, but plum!So now Lenovo's got a "midnight plum" u460. Whereas the black U460 has a textured lid, the plum one appears to be a solid color. Still no sign of a red one.
In any event, I did order one and received it last week. Unfortunately it would power down soon after being turned on, so much so that it took 5-6 attempts before we could create a new user, because it kept shutting down before we finished typing the name, etc. So, it went back (RMA return).
In the short time we had it, it seemed heavier than the advertised < 4 lb, definitely heavier than my T410s. I think this is because it had an 8-cell battery, however that's the only available battery at this time.
Also, Lenovo's "Home & Home Office" is run like a boutique operation. You pick you machine off the web-site, they build it and ship it from China, it goes through customs, etc. The (lack of) availability of machines and inability to customize hardware contributes to this impression also. A far cry from Dell.
