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.
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.
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!

Excerpt: On first inspection, you could be forgiven for mistaking Lenovo’s tiny IdeaPad S205 for a netbook. It has the same small footprint and 11in screen that we’re used to seeing, but look a little deeper and it’s clear this is an evolution of the traditional netbook form factor. Unlike traditional netbooks, which are restricted to certain hardware in order to ship with Windows 7 Starter edition, Lenovo has opted for Windows 7 Home Premium, which allows for a greater range of...
