Keypad has no LED in keys, even this now expected as a sort of standard. At least they did not stuff a dedicated graphics card in this one - they got that right, but this dosnt in my opinion change the fact, that this device is yet another Ivy Bridge flop.
The maximum height for Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks is 18 mm, or 7 inches, which is the thickness of the U310!
