The Y460 ran for 2 hours and 12 minutes on our video playback battery drain test, which is disappointing considering it has a six-cell battery. That previously mentioned MacBook Pro ran for nearly 4 more hours on the same test, and even a basic 15-inch Dell Inspiron 1564 ran an hour more. For a semiportable 14-inch laptop, barely breaking the 2-hour mark is unacceptable.

Lenovo includes an industry-standard one-year parts and labor warranty with the system. Upgrading to a three-year plan will cost an extra $107, or $149 if you include onsite service. Support is accessible through a 24-7 toll-free phone line, an online knowledge base, and driver downloads.
