Virtually an ultrabook. Members of the slim and affordable IdeaPad S400 range are tempting to customers who are interested in an ultrabook, but do not want to pay the demanded price. Our test reveals whether Lenovo's 14-inch laptop is successful.

The Lenovo IdeaPad S400 is a bargain-priced Windows 8 Ultrabook that offers solid performance and an attractive design. While it does lack battery life and display viewing angles, it does have a very comfortable keyboard.

For a sub-$500 notebook, the Lenovo IdeaPad S400 delivers a great mix of speed, comfort and portability. For $455, you get a capable Core i3 processor in a very slim and light design. The keyboard and touchpad are also above average. However, you'll need to sacrifice battery life to get such a capable Windows 8 machine at this price. Overall, though, the S400 is a good choice for social networking, Web surfing and light productivity tasks.
