lenovo-ideapad-s205-netbookThe IdeaPad line that the Lenovo IdeaPad S205 netbook is included in, first of all is produced for pleasant and comfortable leisure time.

The laptops of this series are known for their attractive design, the good quality of the display and volume, as well as for worthy technical characteristics which allow to play HD videos, games and different applications of high demand.

The “S” letter preceding the name of the netbook means the series it is included in.

The main purpose is web surfing. They are notable for their high mobility and autonomy, attractive exterior and more affordable price as compared with other laptops.

First of all, the IdeaPad S205 model draws attention by their 11.6" form factor, interesting design on the lid and, of course, autonomous operation time.

Thus, while reading blogs and commenting photos in Vkontakte the laptop will be working for almost 8 hours.

There is the AU Optronics B116XW01 V0 LCD matrix installed in the IdeaPad S205 netbook. Its size is 11.6 inches, the resolution is 1366х768 pixels (WXGA). Such resolution is not so common for netbooks, as there are being used matrixes of 1024х600 resolution in them. It is rather used in 14'' and 15'' displays.

However, the installed 11.6 inches HD matrix allows to display more information on the screen. As well it allows to avoid appearing the scroll bar while browsing some web sites, and icons on the desktop look more attractive.

The display 16:9 format makes it possible to watch films without bothering black lines. Thanks to the LED lightning the matrix is illuminated almost evenly on every side that provides more comfort when watching. 
Horizontal angles are not so bad, thus, you may watch films on the netbook with one or two of your friend.

As to vertical angles, unfortunately, they are not as good as horizontal ones. When the display is being inclined an image begins to darken especially at the edges. Otherwise, an image becomes lighter and inverting gradually when decreasing angle between the lid and the netbook. As a result, to begin watching a film comfortably you have to seat optimally all your spectators. 

The netbook is based on the AMD E-350 platform. It includes the dual core CPU of 1.6 GHz frequency and 1 Mb cache memory of the second level, as well the integrated AMD Radeon HD 6310 video card.


Such the platform is notable for not bad performance and low energy consumption, and consequently increased time of operating with the battery. Also CPUs of AMD E series excel their main competitors - Atom of Intel – because of newer architecture.

Moreover, APU has a built-in DDR3 memory controller. For more information about the CPU, the cache memory and the motherboard see CPU-Z screen shots.The time of autonomous operating that is as important in the netbook as its performance, is very middling.

It will be working for 5-7 hours in a reading mode, but you can play games for only 3 hours.It should to be noted, that we may recommend such the netbook for those who are indifferent to high performance, but wish to bring the device with himself that really has not extra kilos.
