Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad S400-MAY9BGE

60% Lenovo IdeaPad S400 Touch 14-inch Laptop Review
Source: Comp Reviews English
For those that want a low cost touchscreen based laptop, the Lenovo IdeaPad S400 Touch is a very attractive offer. The relatively compact and light system offers a smooth enough overall experience which is useful for the new user interface of Windows 8. It certainly isn't going to be winning any performance marks but is close enough to the competition.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.8 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
