Decent device if you can be tied to mains power

  • Summary: Good design but let down by poor battery life: it averages less than two hours word processing before I have to put it back on charge.

Terrible battery and lack lustre screen

Paul Holman, Amazon
15 January 2015
  • Summary: I've owned one of these for a couple of years now and it's been hugely disappointing. When I saw it in a shop I knew the screen wouldn't be particularly great, but it's poor off axis performance makes using it tiring and frustrating. The worst aspect is the TERRIBLE battery life. 90 minutes is pretty average on a charge. However that hides an even worse problem, no ability to retain charge. Fully charge it, leave it a week and it's too flat to boot.

  • Summary: This computer is working fine and has a nice graphics card but nevertheless, compared to a similar computer with lower specifications (my packard Dot MU) , it freezes more often and works slower.

Disappointed

N. Gane "nicksig", Amazon

  • Summary: I needed a small note book as I travel a lot and needed to write and network on the move. I didn't want to carry around a big bulky machine with an oversized screen. In these respects this Lenovo is perfect for me: it's the right size and weight, and looks good. But there the positives pretty much stop. It's very slow and it took a couple of days to disable various Windows 8 oddities to get it to run in any functionable way.

Great, shame about Win7

Darren, Amazon

  • Summary: Good little laptop, looks smart, quick enough for its intended use, battery life is also good, lasts 4 hrs which is ample. Windows 7 is a let down though, upgrade to Windows 8 to get the full potential out of this machine.

Very dissappointed

Daass, Amazon

  • Summary: The laptop is shocking. I had a Lenovo S205 previously and naturally thought the S206 is a step up. It really is not. It has fewer ports (USB, HDMI etc), it is a much cheaper build (the keyboard flexes while typing), the screen in real terms is smaller and the battery is not removable. This has to be a joke. It's like I bought a fake Lenovo when in fact they've just gone cheaper and hope to pass their rubbish off to people who know nothing about computers.

Great little machine for the price

  • Summary: I hated windows 8 at first but now I've got my head round it, it's not too bad although I still prefer Windows 7. It's a good size and very light and battery life is pretty good. It's very quick as well; my friend tried it over Christmas and said it's really fast and if has a decent size hard drive. In all, very pleased with it for the price, great value for money.
