14" screens a lot smaller than 14" screens back then. They are wider and squat. I also lament the laptop industry move in this direction, but.. This resolution suits the size just fine for out and about. It goes as small as my eyes can comfortably read. At home, you should be on external mouse/keyboard/monitor anyway.
NVIDIA GeForce GT 610M
Video Memory Dedicated 1GB
Graphic Type Dedicated Card
It is because of the dedicated memory instead of using the HD4000 on the CPU and sharing the RAM from the rest of the computer. It is nice to have 8 or 16GB of RAM and another 1GB of dedicated video memory instead of slowing down other processes or operations.
Also, just a heads up. "Communications - LAN 10/100Mbps" (No Gigabit LAN) Wish it had 10/100/1000Mbps...
Total nub question, isn't Gigabit LAN only necessary if you're going to be downloading more than 100mb/s?

im not sure what you mean... and im not sure even sure if a replacement keyboard is needed.
the piece is still attached but it wiggles like i can make the key look normal but then if you tap the sides, they tilt.
If it's just one key, try popping it out. I can't explain it well, but google your model, or a similar one, and there might be a youtube video with some instructions. I've done this to my laptop many times before.
This computer is a NIGHTMARE. Honestly. I am returning it. Wireless is awful - even after the claimed fix. So, so slow! And customer service was hilariously bad. NO ONE could understand me and I got the run around for hours and hours trying to get this stuff figured out.
SSD doesn't seem to speed anything up. The only good thing is the form factor.
Oh - but I didn't mind the resolution myself.
And when I upgraded to Windows 8 - I had a TON of driver problems that I couldn't seem to get fixed.
All that being said, my brother has a U310 and loves it. One of the reasons I got the U410. My personal experience with this machine and Lenovo was just awful.
