Networking, connectivity and expansion

With its integrated Draft-N WiFi networking capabilities, this laptop provides up to five times the performance and twice the wireless range using 802.11n-compatible routers as you would with 802.11g networks. It's also backward compatible with 802.11b/g networks (commonly found at WiFi hotspots and in older home routers) as well as 802.11a networks (which have a higher throughput, but more limited range--great for closed office environments). This notebook also provides ultra-fast Gigabit Ethernet networking (10/100/1000).

  • 3 USB 2.0 ports for connecting a wide range of peripherals--from digital cameras to MP3 players
  • 6-in-1 card reader compatible with SD/SD Pro, MMC, MS, MS Pr/XD
  • Analogue video output: 1 VGA
  • 1 headphone/line-out jack (with SPDIF digital audio support), 1 microphone jack
  • 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet

Long battery life

Laptops are invaluable for getting things done, but they're also only as good as their battery life. We take our laptops everywhere and expect batteries to keep up with us. For that reason, long battery life tops the list for many laptop buyers.

Lenovo's Power Manager helps you get the most from your battery.

Lenovo's laptops are designed to run cool, which is one of the reasons they take little power. The less the cooling fan has to run, the less battery power it takes. (Smart air flow offers another benefit—it's a lot more comfortable on your wrists and lap to work on a cool system than a hot one).

Power Manager

Lenovo laptops come loaded with Power Manager to help you easily manage your power settings. Just slide the bar towards the left for higher performance or to the right for longer battery life. Power Manager handles all the behind-the-scenes work.

Battery Stretch

Fight the dreaded "low battery" notification. Power Manager's Battery Stretch automatically turns off certain functions, like radio and Bluetooth, in order to squeeze out those extra crucial minutes of power you need to get the job done.

Battery quality

We set above-industry standards for our battery suppliers, and we vigorously test the batteries that we allow in our systems for safety and for long life.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Vision 13 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
I purchased the S205 recently as I wanted an ultra mobile laptop with reasonable performance that I could take on the road with me without being overly restricted by size or battery life constraints.
Basically the S205 is a netbook and a beautiful one at that, and with a computing platform this small you've got to be realistic about the performance you expect from it. "Good enough" computing is what the S205 is all about it does its job. Don't expect it to be as quick as a Core I3 based laptop or some of the Llano mobile devices.
First of all I'll discuss what I think about this laptop then I'll go through the individual components of the S205 with what I like and don't like

Performs very well for web browsing and Youtube.
Handles High def video fine and connects to 1080P TV via HDMI output (cable not included).
Not a games machine so forget it if you are looking to play modern games like Battlefield 3. However it does handle games from 3-4 years ago very well and casual games like Plants Vs Zombies run fine.
Doesn't get hot at all, therefore comfortable when used for extended periods on my knees.
Quiet- little heat therefore fans don't need to run at high speed.
Battery lasts for ages.

Keyboard: I'm not that demanding with regard to this aspect of a device but I found it an excellent keyboard with a nice feel and I enjoyed typing on it. The keyboard does sit at a slight angle as the battery raises the base of the laptop up slightly to generate a slight incline. This may or may not be to an individual's preference but I liked it. The purpose of this incline is meant to be for providing a better typing experience but I reckon it's also to allow a bigger battery to be fitted inside the case.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good netbook just got even better.... 19 Nov 2011
By Oliver! TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I have reviewed two previous models of this netbook earlier this year, and both were the best in class at a time, but this one got even better.

It has the same amount of memory (4GB) and 500GB HD as previous model, but this is more than enough for a small travel-size netbook. No need to upgrade, and also this is quite tricky on Lenovo netbooks (you need to remove keaboard etc). What is different for this model is the new updated AMD processor - E450 vs E350. It has slightly higher CPU clock rate (1.65GHz vs 1.60Ghz) and 508GHz GPU but due to extra turbo-core it can go up to 600MHz, which gives 20-30% increase in games and benchmarks. Overall this CPU/GPU combination is very powerful, most games are absolutely playable, HD Video running smoothly, and normal tasks like Web browsing, emails, office documents editing performed very fast. In fact Word starts almost instantly, in less than 1 second. Overall PC startup time is less than a minute inc login which is pretty impresive for Windows netbook. I attach a large 23" monitor to in in the office and this little beast manages 2 screens perfectly, second in 1950x1050 HD resolution.

Considering it's still the size/price of a typical (good) netbook we are talking here it's just amazing. In fact the specs of this machine are better than of my desktop (which is not new I admit).

The build quality is exceptional, with sleek design, quality almost full-size keyboard (I think letter keys are full-size, they only fiddled with arrows and enter buttons). Keyboard is the best around - I tried dozens of note/netbooks at PC World and other shops to compare (as I am using it for a lot of typing). Even more expensive models like Sony VAIO have inferior keyboards. Trackpad could be larger but it's OK.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Practical Netbook/Ultra-portable 4 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase
After much research I plumped for this netbook. If the model is an E-450 then the GPU is actually a HD 6320M which can burst to 600MHz as opposed to the fixed 500MHz of the HD 6310M.

Windows gives the unit an overall score of 3.9, this being the lowest score and for Processor. Aero Gets 4.6, RAM 5.8 and Gaming and HDD get 5.9. Pretty impressive then IMHO.

Streaming 720P video from YouTube appears to be pretty much flawless with perhaps the odd spike - hard to confirm this as a CPU issue rather than a connectivity/YouTube problem however.

I am not expecting to do heavy gaming on the system, but I did buy it so I could do something at least. I have both Torchlight and Trine 2 on steam and downloading both, both are running fine native resolution and at max, although I haven't ventured very far into either game or taken any FRAPS frames per seconds recordings. Both games felt responsive, although I suspect that Trine 2 might be pushing things a little and dropping the settings down a little will be necessary later on. Interestingly, Torchlight has a netbook setting which kicks everything down to low or off. I am able to run it at max settings, but I do wonder if it might be necessary to dump a few once the screen fills with monsters.

I plan to install Halflife 2 later and I full expect it will run well, although perhaps not at maximum settings.
