Lenovo IdeaPad Lenovo IdeaPad S10 Review

The Lenovo IdeaPad S10 sets itself apart from other typically-sized portable netbooks that have been storming the market of late.

Among the small but full-featured portable mini laptops in the market, the Idea Pad S10 is designed for premium on-the-go use and durability.

This notebook wins hands-down for overall dependability, portability, connectivity capabilities and general features.

Whether for Internet use, simple word processing and data entry, there are few more dependable netbooks than the Lenovo IdeaPad S10.

 At First Glance

At first glance, you'll notice that the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 is similar in features to its other netbook contemporaries. It has a wide, 10.1 inch 1024x600 LCD matte screen that offers crisp resolution, an industry-standard touch pad, a 1.3 mega pixel webcam, built-in microphone and modem for standard word processing and Internet use. The speakers are placed aesthetically just above the keypad on the front panel, which also house the battery and power indicators for easy viewing. Its main function is mostly to provide quick and easy web access for users on the go, especially where Wi-Fi connectivity is available. It comes pre-installed with authentic Windows XP, which boots up in less than a minute.

 Notable Features and Highlights

Most typical netbooks come equippedwith 1GB of RAM; the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 has 2GB. Aside from its built-in Internet capabilities, the IdeaPad S10 comes featured with a built-in wired Ethernet connection. It has the usual ports, including a Wi-Fi switch, Bluetooth, a 4-in-1 card reader, an Express Card slot for 3G or HSDPA connectivity, and two 2.0 USB ports. It has a 1 year limited warranty. The graphics adaptor is an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 and provides basic graphical capabilities but is not recommended for gaming. It's sleek at only 1 inch thick, an all-matte finish, and tips the scale at only 2.75 lbs for maximum portability.

A notable feature is the S10's spacious keyboard, which spans 85% of the laptop's width, maximizing all available space for typing. This makes it ideal even for users who crave more key space and are looking for less typing strain on the keyboard. The touch pad, however small for a standard 10.1" system, is smooth and includes the usual right- and left-click buttons as well as a dedicated scroll bar. Navigation is easy as the touch pad supports multi-touch gestures, making zooming in or out on websites and pictures less awkward. You can pinch, flip, or swipe your fingers to perform actions; a plus factor. This model, however, does not come with an optical drive.

Like other netbooks, the S10 is equipped with the energy-efficient Intel Atom processor at 1.6 GHZ with a 533 MHz front side bus and 512k cache, but it comes with the 3-cell Lithium Ion battery. It can accommodate up to two (2GB) of DDR2 SDRAM maximum memory, while the hard drive is 160GB. With the price tag ringing up at around 350.00 and a reputable name backing it up, there is no mistaking the IdeaPad S10's value.
