4.0 out of 5 stars A Good little netbook (if you know what you are getting), 27 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lenovo Ideapad S206 11.6 inch laptop - Grey (AMD Dual Core C50M 1GHz, 2Gb RAM, 320Gb HDD, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Integrated Graphics, Windows 7 Home Premium) (Personal Computers)
As I bought this on boxing day the review is for the reduced price of 179 GBP I payed for. I needed something smaller and lighter than my notebook but tablets lacked the features I needed like a physical keyboard..
I am happy with my purchase.
This is cheap netbook so don't expect anything about it to be exceptional (although the graphics chip is better than most integrated graphics cards on this price range). Build quality is good and the screen is great when used indoors (it is a glossy one and outdoors appears very washed out). Processing power is adequate for browsing the net, writing texts and watching movies but not much more but don't expect to play games or do video editing on this.
On the down side memory may be upgradable and there may be space for a better battery (under moderate usage it lasts slightly less than 2h) but we will never know as there is no way to open it up.
So if you are looking for a basic netbook for basic tasks, with good build quality and don't care about the short battery life and the fact that you can not upgrade anything on it this is a good deal even at 250 GBP.

Note: The keyboard is in UK layout not in the US (international) shown on the pictures
