Summary: Seeing as I haven't written a review yet I decided to write one now. I own this netbook for about a year now and it is a great purchase. To my amazement it can even play League of Legends, which is a nice bonus for when I'm away on the weekends.
Summary: I love my IdeaPad. I've had it nearly 2 years now and I use it every day. It's small enough to take everywhere but the keyboard is full size so you can do a lot of writing on it if you need to. It also has very good specifications and I can play Sims 3 on it with no problems. Office runs smoothly and multitasking with multiple programs open is fine. The battery life is excellent and comes with an application to manage how you use the battery power.
Summary: I'm struggling even to give this a one star. The biggest problem is that it's hyper-sensitive - it switches itself off if you touch any part of the sides of the base. It won't restart unless it has over 75% battery capacity, meaning you have to plug it in first. When you start it, the 'boot optimizer' always kicks in, even though the settings say it's been disabled.
Summary: I ordered the Lenovo S205 through Amazon based on it being a good price and my very positive experience with 2 other Lenovo laptops in the family. Sadly, the netbook which I was sent had a twisted keyboard, meaning it wobbled on a flat surface like a table - very annoying! Amazon were great, getting me a replacement out extra quick because it was a birthday present for my daughter. Very annoying though when the replacement turned out to have exactly the same fault.
Summary: I got this product in June this year 2012 and everything was fine till i had to go upstairs to my bedroom which is where I use the internet the most and the machine would just NOT connect to the WiFi and when it does, the signal would be toooo low for anything to be done. I sold it on eBay sharpish and got myself a beautiful Sony Vaio with the same specs and much better connection. My immediate last laptop was a Vaio too and I should have stayed with it.
Summary: It is now 5 months since I purchased the Lenovo ideapad S205 and I can honestly say it was an excellent buy. I was looking for something small and mobile but powerful enough to run everyday office applications, surf the web and stream video seamlessly. The S205 has not disappointed and proved to be a little powerhouse. In fact it's so good it's also temporarily replaced my aging desk top at home.
Summary: Hi there! I bought this from Amazon.de and got it in a couple of days!!! Great service to say the least! I' m an experienced pc user, I'm always building my desktop machines myself, test, tune and overclock them as I see fit. So I guess I have some grip with hardware. In this review I will be focusing on two major aspects of the Lenovo S205 netbook, namely performance and build quality. 1. PERFORMANCE As far as speed goes, I have to say it's quite slow.
Summary: IdeaPad has a crappy plastic base and a lack of spare parts. I wish I had bought a Thinkpad. Battery latches broke after a few days, and even though the latches are in a separate part, customer service offered me just buying the entire lower housing for the price of third laptop. [...
