The S205 might look like a netbook — and it has all the benefits thereof — but don't let that fool you. This little bundle packs a mighty punch with an array of premium features. Vision Technology from AMD produces robust processors, giving you greater multitasking ability and 65 percent faster graphics performance than previous generations of AMD. With great power comes the need for more hard drive space, so we loaded the S205 with Genuine Windows® 7 Home Basic, 2GB DDR3 memory and 500GB HDD storage.
Whether its your everyday laptop or another addition to your growing PC arsenal, the S205 was designed for easy mobility, weighing only 1.4kg and measuring from just 18mm thin. Your new internet companion is also chic with its stylistic, cityscape finish. Flip open the smooth, one-hand hinge cover and you'll find a contemporary, breathable AccuType keyboard, multitouch touchpad and integrated webcam.
The Lenovo IdeaPad S205: it has an 11.6-inch, 1366-by-768-resolution LED-backlit display and integrated webcam, configured with the AMD Fusion E-450 CPU running at 1.6GHz and 2GB DDR 3 up to 8GB Max. Its scores on our performance benchmark, as described below, are good for a netbook, as are the battery life test results 5 hours 21 minutes in use for the S205.
The IdeaPad S205 frame rates topped out at about 20 frames per second at the low-quality, 800 by 600 setting and sunk to slightly under 9 frames per second at the high-quality, 1024 by 768 setting. In other words, AMD netbooks are a lot faster than those with Intel Atom processors, but still too slow for modern 3D gaming and slower than a low-cost Core i5 or the like.
The Lenovo IdeaPad S205 works just fine. The display is bright, and off-axis viewing is very good from side to side; not that shabby from above or below, either. Audio was unexpectedly robust for such a small portable, and the integrated 1.3-megapixel webcam delivers adequate, if not outstandingly sharp, images.
What's particularly impressive about the Lenovo IdeaPad S205 is how well Lenovo manages to fit a very usable keyboard into an admittedly cramped space. The sculpted keys and spacing all reflect Lenovo's continued excellence in the art of keyboard design. The small matte Synaptics touchpad feels responsive and reasonably precise.
The IdeaPad brand was created to give consumers an alternative to the ThinkPad's longtime corporate image, and this is most clearly reflected in the Lenovo IdeaPad S205's industrial design. The shiny black case has a subtle pattern of differently sized squares that you can best see by holding the laptop at an angle under bright light. Inside, the matte surface is lightly engraved with fine lines, and a hard matte surface on the underside doesn't get too warm even after several hours of use.
The port array is pretty typical for a netbook. On the left edge, from front to back, you get an SD/MMC/Memory Stick card reader, a USB 2.0 port, and a VGA out port; on the right edge, the headphone and microphone jacks are conveniently placed toward the front, followed by a Wi-Fi on-off switch (a nice touch not routinely found in netbooks), an HDMI port, two more USB 2.0 ports, a security lock slot and a 10/100 ethernet port. The S205 supports 802.11n Wi-Fi on the 2.4GHz band, no 5GHz or mobile broadband support, even as an option.
The Lenovo IdeaPad S205 comes preloaded with more software than you find on Lenovo's business models. Some seems useful, including the AMD Catalyst Control center, which, in addition to offering easy access to some graphics options, includes several system presets for various tasks and environments, for example, the air travel option turns off Wi-Fi and optimizes power settings to conserve battery life. Lenovo's OneKey rescue and recovery utility helps you create backup discs and restore your system using a special button on the right side above the keyboard.
