Comment

Model:

The Lenovo IdeaPad S415 Touch is a lightweight ultra-portable laptop with decent capability and affordability. The laptop comes in silver grey with a black underside. The alloy chassis looks good and weighs just 2.74 kg. The Windows 8.1 laptop packs an AMD A-Series A6-5200 2 GHz quad core processor, 4 GB DDR3 1600 SDRAM with (max. 8 GB), an AMD Radeon HD 8400 and 500 GB hard drive.

This is a pretty good setup especially for the price point. The 14 inch HD Active Matrix TFT Color LCD with LED technology features an aspect ratio of 16:9. The touchscreen offers easy navigation especially with the included latest Microsoft OS variant. Interfaces on the laptop consist of 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 USB port, HDMI and Headphone/Microphone combo port. The Lenovo IdeaPad S415 Touch also comes with an SD card reader, Bluetooth 4.0 and an island-style keyboard. Network communication is fast with its IEEE 802.11b/g/n wireless LAN and Fast Ethernet technology.

Battery life is decent with a Lithium Ion pack powering the device for up to 5 hours according to Lenovo. The Lenovo IdeaPad S415 Touch will definitely be a good alternative for users looking to be on the go while keeping the budget affordable.

AMD Radeon HD 8570M:

Lower-end graphics card based on the GCN Mars architecture. The GPU is similar to the Radeon HD 8590M, but with slower DDR3 VRAM and a 64-Bit memory interface.

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

A4-5000: Quad-core APU for low-end laptops, codenamed Kabini. Based on the Jaguar architecture. Integrates an Radeon HD 8330 graphics card.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.
