This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad S415 14" Touch AMD A6-5200 4GB / 500GB HD Win 8 (59385549)
Pros: A6 processor isn't too bad for windows 8.
Touch screen is decent. Leave smudges sometimes, so I genearlly avoid using it (not really benefit over mouse yet)
Cons: Feels very cheap. If you pick it up by the corner, if feels like you're going to break off a chunk of the laptop.
My phone fell on a keyboard key and the keyboard key broke off lol. Ended up order a new key (not work the money but oh well).
Other Thoughts: For a stationary laptop (always on table or desk) it's a tolerable computer. But for using it on your laptop or carrying it around, not a sturdy construction.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Magnetic detachable keyboard.
Good "feel" leather.
Securely holds the tablet.
Cons: Somewhat bulky.
The hole for the USB port (on the bottom center of the tablet) doesn't really allow you to plug in a wire/connector while using the case.
I would've loved it if the tablet had a little bit more clearance for the usb port to be able to comfortably use a right-angle microusb cable.
Other Thoughts: Generally not too bad of a case.
The flaws for the case come from the design of the table more than the case. However, the designers of the case should've taken that into account.
Pros: The 11.6" screen is great. Resolution isn't bad.
Responsive touch screen.
Running full x86 Windows (not an ARM processor)
It is pretty compatible with "ancient" windows software as long as you run in compatibility mode.
Cons: Sometimes can be slow to "flip" or "rotate" events, and about 3% of the time (very rarely) has trouble sensing that it was rotated.
Windows 8 is a pain, but the free upgrade to Windows 8.1 was acceptable.
USB port is in the worse place. End up using the tablet upside-down (a little OCD about that hehe).
I've experienced some wireless issues, but nothing that really affected performance.
Other Thoughts: In general, I wouldn't pay more than $350 for a tablet. Since at the time of purchase, this tablet fell under that price level, it was definitely a good deal. Would not spend any more on it though.
I've had good experience with Lenovo and will definitely use their products in the future.
