Lenovo IdeaPad S205

1 January 2012
  • Summary: Combining AMD's excellent ultraportable Fusion platform with Lenovo's consumer-friendly IdeaPad designs, the S205 is a solid, if unexciting, 11-inch laptop ideal for on-the-go Web surfing.
  • Pros: The Lenovo IdeaPad S205 has a typically excellent Lenovo keyboard and a sharp design that belies its budget origins.
  • Cons: The touch pad is on the small side, and the same components can be found for a little less if you shop around. The system also includes a surprising amount of adware.

Review Lenovo IdeaPad S205 (Fusion) Subnotebook

12 August 2011
  • Summary: Netbook plus. Atom is out - Fusion makes the better mobile companion. The smallest IdeaPad now also benefits from that what gave the APU subnotebooks from Toshiba, HP and Sony good portability and HD suitability.
  • Pros: Slim case, Pleasant stable keyboard, Quiet operation, The perfect HD player with an HDMI port for the TV. The inputs are suitable for prolific typists. Stable, slim case.
  • Cons: Reflective 12.5 inch screen, Low office performance, Poor screen rates, Increased temperatures during load, Poor stereo speakers, The matt screen of an Edge 11 and the brightness of a Samsung 900X3A.

Lenovo IdeaPad S205 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
25 July 2011
  • Summary: In the low-cost ultraportable space, the Lenovo IdeaPad S205 is a solid middle-of-the-road pick. For more than $400 less than the latest 11-inch MacBook Air, you get a handsome design, spacious keyboard, and cool-running temperatures. However, the S205's small touchpad and tiny and mushy touchpad buttons give us pause. This laptop performs pretty well, but we prefer the HP Pavilion dm1z, which offers better ergonomics and longer battery life for $100 less.
  • Pros: Elegant, understated design, Stays cool, Good performance, Spacious, comfy keyboard
  • Cons: Small touchpad, Mushy mouse buttons, Below-average battery life, A little pricey

Lenovo IdeaPad S205 reviewed- overall solid 11.6 notebook

31 March 2011
  • Conclusion: The S205 is a decent entry for the mainstream notebook market, as it packs AMD’s latest Fusion CPU and had HD graphics. The build, although from plastic, is pretty good and the keyboard feels much better than the ones on more expensive machines. But the S205 has a major negative aspect- the battery won’t hold for more than 3 hours on a single charge!

  • Cons: Pequeno touchpad. Autonomia de bateria não impressiona. Configuração cara.
