  • Conclusion: As an extra system for home use, the IdeaPad S405 is an affordable option that offers a decent display, comfortable keyboard and touch pad, and fairly good-looking design. For anyone else, its slightly flimsy feel, lackluster performance, and poor battery life prevent a recommendation.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, Thin and lightweight, Impressive audio output
  • Cons: Weak performance and poor battery life, Flimsy case, No touch screen

Lenovo IdeaPad S405

LAPTOP Magazine
22 May 2013
  • Summary: The Lenovo IdeaPad S405 follows in the footsteps of the IdeaPad S400, delivering a great mix of comfort and portability. For $399, you get a solid AMD processor with good graphics performance in a very slim and light design with above-average audio. However, you'll need to sacrifice battery life to get such a capable Windows 8 machine at this price. Overall, though, the S405 is a good choice for social networking, Web surfing and playing mainstream games.
  • Pros: Lightweight portable design, Extremely affordable, Good graphics for the price, Strong audio,
  • Cons: Short battery life, Narrow viewing angles

Review Lenovo IdeaPad S405 Notebook

31 December 2012
  • Summary: Couch potato. Lenovo's IdeaPad S405 comes with a Trinity quad-core and a light case and is very quiet. But, how do its dark glare-type display and its 32 Wh battery blend in with mobile ambitions?
  • Pros: light, 24 month warranty, works always quietly, decent system performance, maintenance possible, low power consumption, the removable battery, and the unlimited accessibility of fan, RAM, 2.5-inch HDD, and WiFi module
  • Cons: springy keyboard, short battery life, only Fast Ethernet, slow hard drive, reflective, dark display, only a single RAM slot (single channel), no VGA port, If low power at all cost, then the battery life should be long and the display bright and matte.

  • Summary: It’s very slim for a budget laptop, but it’s far too slow and the touchpad will drive you mad

  • Conclusion: Overall, with the Lenovo S400 you're getting roughly the same performance and similar battery life as the Lenovo S405, but with a different badge attached. It's a confusing situation - we say go with your heart. Once you've tackled this tricky dilemma, you're left with a laptop that looks like an Ultrabook but will probably stay at home mostly.

Test Lenovo IdeaPad S405 Notebook

22 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Das Lenovo IdeaPad S405 (MAZ4EGE) ist ein stromsparender 14-Zoller mit vergleichsweise geringen Performance-Werten. Für ein 1.580 Gramm leichtes Notebook, das seine Heimat On-The-Road hat, wäre das kein Problem. Wenn aber Mobilität im Fokus steht, was hat dann die knappe Laufzeit von drei Stunden (WLAN-Test) und das spiegelnde , für draußen zu dunkle Display zu bedeuten?
  • Pros: Geringes Gewicht, 24 Monate Garantie, Arbeitet stets leise, Gute Anwendungsleistung, Wartung möglich, Niedriger Energieverbrauch
  • Cons: Biegsame Tastatur, Kurze Laufzeiten, Nur Fast-Ethernet, Langsame Festplatte, Spielgelndes, zu dunkles Display, Nur ein RAM-Sockel (Single Channel), Kein VGA-Port
