Wi-Fi issue is unresolved as of November 2012.
on November 15, 2012
Right out of the box (November 8, 2012) the Wi-Fi speed of my Ideapad U410 was ridiculously low compared to my other laptop, which was sitting right next to it.
I ran three speedtests:
Ideapad U410 - Download Speed: 1.50Mbps, Upload Speed: 13.29Mbps
Acer Aspire 5740 - Download Speed: 51.29Mbps, Upload Speed: 45.01Mbps
I couldn't even watch a YouTube video without it stopping every 5 seconds for several minutes. Insane!
Updating the Wi-Fi drivers did not solve the problem.
FYI, the Lenovo support forum has a 57-page thread about this Wi-Fi issue, which Lenovo still does not acknowledge.
I would strongly recommend NOT purchasing this item because it comes with this serious flaw.
