Lenovo IdeaPad S405 gets more zing from AMD A-series processor!



The Lenovo IdeaPad S405 comes from Lenovo’s line of ultraportable laptops without the ultra high price. Offering a balance between performance and mobility, this line of laptops are the in-betweens of the ultrathin and the powerful, yet larger variants. Knowing that it is a bit of both, we then took it for a test run. More about the Lenovo IdeaPad S405 after the jump.

The S405’s exterior is of practicality and overall functionality. The notebook boasts a thickness of only 21.9mm making it a snug fit to any backpack or laptop bag. Parallel to its thickness is its weight. Having a weight of only 3.97 lbs. the S405 proves to be a good computing buddy for travelers and those on the go. As with all of Lenovo’s new IdeaPad S series, the S405 features a metallic finish available in a variety of colors including, crimson red, silver grey and cotton-candy pink.

The system packs a punch as it is powered by an AMD A-series processor that is bundled with a Radeon HD chip. Through AMD’s Fusion Technology, the central processor and graphics processor are molded together into one chip, making the heat distribution and power consumption more manageable. It also makes things simpler, faster, and cheap as the system needs only one component to process its programs and visuals.

Thinking of the needs of its user, Lenovo’s S405 employs a number of peripherals for faster and more comfortable usage. The device employs a USB 3.0 for high-speed data transfers and also a pair of USB 2.0 ports. For storage, the laptop comes with a hefty 500 GB or 1TB disk space. It also has a 32GB SSD variant for faster loading and responsiveness.

For entertainment, the S405 comes with an HDMI port, a 14-inch HD widescreen display, stereo speakers and Dolby Advanced Audio v2 certification. The setup makes the unit perfect for movie watching and gaming.

The S405 comes with a boatload of Lenovo’s application designed for the convenience of the user. One of such is Lenovo’s Intelligent Touchpad, a feature that allows the user to zoom, scroll, and manipulate files through the use of gestures.  The laptop also employs Lenovo’s Quick Start feature which allows the user to immediately jump online in just a matter of seconds. In case of data corruption, the S405 also employs Lenovo’s OneKey Rescue System which reloads and reboots the computer back to its original factory setting at a press of a button.

Be it at work, entertainment, or for gaming, the Lenovo’s IdeaPad S405 proves to be a welcome companion made for any application at any given time. The marriage between AMD’s processor and Lenovo’s systems makes the S405 a powerful machine that conserves both space and time, not to mention cheaper compared to its counterparts. Undoubtedly, Lenovo’s Ideapad S405 gives you the best deal when it comes to price, power, and comfort.
