Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad S205-1038

80% Lenovo IdeaPad S205-1038 review
Source: PC Advisor English
Bridging the gap between netbook and laptop, the Lenovo IdeaPad S205-1038 comes in at a very competitive price even if it does lack the raw power of some of the competition. If you’re after something highly portable but need to do more than send a few emails and surf the web the Lenovo is ideal, and the sharp definition offered by the screen outweighs the drawback of having a glossy finish.
