Pros: Perky and responsive, nice big trackpad, light without feeling flimsy, CHEAP TO BUY.
Cons: Windows 8, typical lower contrast low res screen with a narrow sweet spot angle of view. No optical drive.
Other Thoughts: This was my first Windows 8 laptop and I was very impressed with the hardware performance (AMD A4) but was frustrated by Windows 8. I sold this one and got an i3 Sony with a touch screen which I returned and ended up with a Lenovo Twist with an i5 CPU. Turns out that I hate Win 8 and should have kept the S405 and installed Win 7.

Could be better for price
Pros: Slim, lightweight, doesn't have a CD-ROM drive (Which I love, since I never use one). CPU and Graphics are decent enough for everyday tasks, and can handle HD video and even some lightweight gaming at low settings. Easy to disassemble, as the entire back panel comes off with a few screws. DC-Jack is easily replaceable (not soldered directly to motherboard). Cheaper than even the low-end ultrabooks while performing similarly. Overall, a decent product for the price and with a couple upgrades can be a well performing machine, however I expected a little more (see below).
Cons: Single channel memory. There is only ONE ram slot, and NO onboard memory, meaning reduced memory performance without dual-channel mode.
Other Thoughts: I upgraded to an SSD a day after purchasing this laptop. A standard 5400rpm drive is practically obsolete these days since they are so slow.
