Lenovo Introduces AMD Powered IdeaPad S205 And G475, Priced At RM1299 And RM1099

25 October 2011 - Lenovo is introducing two affordable and portable notebooks - the IdeaPad S205 and Lenovo G475. They are priced at RM1299 and RM1099, respectively. Their portability had not sacrificed performance, as the notebooks come equipped with AMD E-Series Fusion APUs which not only offer faster performance and HD graphics, but promises longer battery life.  

Lenovo Ideapad S205
The S205 weighs just 1.35kg and measures 18mm thick, and is powered by Windows 7 Home Basic. There is an AccuType chiclet keyboard to ensure a better typing experience. Lenovo claims the S205 has six hours of battery life, which is managed by the Lenovo Energy Manager Software 6.0. Other bundled Lenovo software includes VeriFace 4.0 face recognition technology that increase software and Active Protection System which protects your hard disc from sudden drops.  

Lenovo G475
Barely above RM1000 is the Lenovo G475, which is a 14.3-inch notebook that supports up to 2GB DDR3 RAM and 500GB hard disc drive plus a HDMI in/out and an integrated card reader. On the software front, it comes with the Lenovo Enhanced Experience 2.0 built for Windows 7, and with Lenovo's Rapidboot technology, the notebook features a quicker start-up and shutdown. Similar to the S205, there is the Lenovo Energy Manager Software 6.0, OneKey Rescue System for backup and VeriFace 4.0 for security.  

However with the RM1099 price point, it comes with DOS only, so we suspect users may have to fork out extra for the operating system. Both notebooks are currently available now.
