Lenovo IdeaPad S405 Review

The Lenovo IdeaPad S405 gives bargain hunters Windows 8 in a lightweight package, but don’t expect long battery life.

(3 out of 5)

The new Lenovo IdeaPad S405 is so slim and light that you could easily mistake it for an Ultrabook, but it costs hundreds of dollars less. Powered by an AMD A6 processor, this $399 laptop, equipped with Windows 8, promises strong mainstream performance in a sleek design. You also get Dolby-powered speakers. Find out whether the S405 has the right mix of features for your money.
