Highly Adequate Lenovo S405 Ultrabook

End Uzer "EndUzer", Amazon
20 July 2014
  • Summary: Budget ultra-book for about $300. What could one possibly complain about?? After 18-mos it is still fully functional, still holds a charge for nearly 3-hrs, runs multiple applications w/o any hiccups & stores a fair amount of data. The one negative aspect I can think of is the touchpad. Definitely consider using a wireless mouse with this unit - Solid value at this price point.

Good computer - bad keyboard.

iska-75005, Ebay
6 December 2013
  • Summary: Pros: - it does the job, works quite well, with no internet drop; - it's fast (at least 2 months after purchase); boot time is real quick; - it's quite light - even though you'll need to bring the charger with you at any time. And it's rather elegant. - quite a lot of space. Cons: - the keyboard is bad, I have to be careful that every letter is written; - the touchpad, even though not too bad, isn't amazing; - very little battery life: about 1h45 of autonomy - although I...

Windows 8 is awful; touchpad takes some getting used to

Critical Reviewer, Amazon
16 July 2013
  • Summary: Though a netbook, the screen is big enough to get the job done. However, the touchpad's awkward built-in button complicating navigating the already dreadful Windows 8 UI.

Good hardware, reasonable price

Zomas T., Amazon
15 July 2013
  • Summary: The laptop arrived on time but included limited printed material on its use. Its lightweight and looks sturdy. It has a fantastic modem that picks up the faintest Wi-Fi signal and good basic software. The touch panel is pleasant to work with and responds nicely to most gestures with no delay or mistakes. As other people pointed out, the windows 8 master software has significant and annoying flaws and prevents from further enjoying this new laptop.

Poor Man's Ultrabook

eagz, Newegg
2 June 2013
  • Summary: Incredible price for a great looking and surprisingly quick notebook. No-flex keyboard and an impressive screen were a surprise in this price point. I'm familiar with this AMD chip series but was surprised and how quick it responds. I didn't buy this for gaming but I installed MW3 to see how it would perform and was very surprised at how well the game looked and performed - no hickups or lags.
  • Pros: affordable, solid construction, looks great
  • Cons: no VGA port, battery life

Very decent, light-weight laptop

Carl, Newegg
31 May 2013
  • Summary: We needed a light, inexpensive laptop as a second computer for our family. This fit the bill quite well and, for that purpose, I would recommend it. We use it for word processing, email, web browsing, and Netflix streaming -- for all of these functions, the s405 performs admirably.
  • Pros: Price
  • Cons: Badly designed touchpad

Good little computer

Rae "Amateur Vagrant", Amazon
19 April 2013
  • Summary: This is a good little computer. It's very slim and light. However, the graphics aren't great: everything has a bluish tint. Also, the mouse pad is just ridiculous. Most anywhere you click it, a menu pops up. You have to be very intentional about clicking it very near the bottom if you want to click and highlight text, for example. I would totally recommend this computer for any day-to-day activities, but I would also recommend getting a mouse.

Great (except win8)

N/A, Newegg
14 March 2013
  • Summary: The major issue here is windows8, but with a bit of tweaking (3rd party app to bring back the start menu), and some messing around in DiskPart to delete the recovery partitions, it's a great machine for the price.
  • Pros: Fast (once bloatware removed). Thin, light, decent battery life. PRICE!
  • Cons: No VGA out, windows8, no security/lock slot
