Reviews for the Lenovo Ideapad S10
The Lenovo IdeaPad S10 is a great netbook, there’s no doubt. But is it the best? Is it worth your money and time? It’s a budget netbook, so netbooks with better features are out there. However, it isn’t boring; Lenovo realized an ExpressCard is a great idea, and included Bluetooth, as every netbook maker should (but not all do, curiously). Considering Lenovo’s new updates, the S10 may be turning into a luxury netbook with a competitive cost – something we can’t help but love.

Lenovo has a sixth sense of what a terrific laptop entails, as evidenced by its celebrated ThinkPad brand and even its recent 12-inch netbook—the IdeaPad S12. While the S12 is nothing short of spectacular, Lenovo's 10-inch netbook line continues to underwhelm. The IdeaPad S10-2 ($349 direct) may be lighter than its predecessor—the S10—but it doesn't bring anything new to the table. In fact, it has taken away the ExpressCard slot—the one feature that made the S10 special. The S10-2 is a 10-inch netbook that does little to impress and is better off taking a pass on.

Lenovo didn't waste any time launching its own netbook when ASUS, HP, and Acer first introduced theirs. That first version of the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 possessed many desirable netbook traits, including an ExpressCard slot and a 10-inch widescreen, that kept the other three from running away with this category. But that was six months ago. Since then, netbooks have been evolving at a furious pace, with manufacturers improving aesthetics, slashing prices, and bridging the features gap between them and mainstream laptops. Although it's one of only two netbooks with an ExpressCard slot, and it now comes with several color options, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 (Red) is already being outgrown and outclassed, in feature set and design, by its peers.

Lenovo's IdeaPad S10 Netbook has been a popular entry in the minilaptop sweepstakes for several reasons. It was one of the first Netbooks to offer an ExpressCard slot (albeit the smaller 34mm variety), it was an early proponent of standard hard-disk drives instead of small solid-state drives (a position that is now the industry standard), and it was one of the only Netbook options for button-down business users, even though the system is technically part of Lenovo's IdeaPad "consumer" line. Lenovo fixes our main issue with the S10 Netbook by adding a larger six-cell battery.

Lenovo recently revamped their line of IdeaPad S10 netbooks. The most significant change was the inclusion of a 6 cell battery option, which allows the computer to run for up to 5 hours away from a power cord, according to Lenovo. So does the new extended battery actually last that long? Read on to find out. It seems like the extra cells have made a difference. The extended battery version of the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 help it to significantly outlast its predecessor. All told, the addition of Quick Start combined with the higher capacity battery have made this S10 a worthy successor to the original one.

You can find netbooks from other manufacturers with similar specs for just $399. In fact, several $399 netbooks offer three USB ports, Bluetooth, and better battery life. However, Lenovo was smart enough to realize an ExpressCard slot is important if you want to make a netbook useful. The ExpressCard slot gives you the option of adding more USB ports, FireWire, eSATA, or any number of other ports to the S10. More importantly, the ExpressCard slot makes it easy to add a broadband modem to the S10 so that you can stay connected to the internet anywhere with cell phone reception. The Quick Start OS and VeriFace software are cool, but not overwhelmingly useful for average consumers. At the end of the day the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 is still a great ultra-portable laptop priced below $500, but the competition in the netbook market is getting pretty serious.

I must say this is one of the best purchases I've ever made. At $400 this netbook was a steal. It has actually become my main computer and I rarely use anything else. If you are considering a netbook this is one of the best machines you'll find. I plan on peforming some upgrades soon. I've decided on getting a 2gb memory stick, an internal bluetooth module, a 500gb notebook drive, an external slim dvd burner, and a 6-cell battery. I've also been considering a second partition for linux as I've heard that Gentoo (I think my friend's brother said gentoo) and I'm sure a few other distros can better take advantage of the Intel Atom CPU.

The Lenovo IdeaPad S10e is difficult to recommend, as it has few features to distinguish it from the rest of the netbook masses, while also suffering from below-par battery life. It does have an unusually compact and lightweight design for a 10-inch netbook, but compromises have been made elsewhere to achieve this. If you don't mind spending slightly more, the Asus Eee PC 1000HE is a better option.

A fantastic business Netbook with a stunning screen, but low battery life. Lenovo is renowned for its high-quality business laptops. The lightweight IdeaPad S10e (£299 inc. VAT) is its first Netbook and provides fantastic usability and a stunning screen, making it by far one of the best Netbooks you can buy. The tiny 1.1kg chassis is not only slim and light, but also incredibly strong. Even the thin screen panel is reassuringly sturdy, making it well suited to regular travel use. The 138-minute battery life is less pleasing, however, and falls below the three-hour minimum we expect. Usability is truly outstanding. Its limited battery life and screen movement may deter more frequent travellers, but the stunning screen and great usability easily put it up there with the best Netbooks we've seen so far.

Lenovo’s popular netbook, repackaged for the education market, offers an instant-on OS and nearly five hours of battery life. Lenovo’s IdeaPad S10e isn’t just the S10 rebranded for the education market; it offers some features its successful predecessor doesn’t, including a Quick Start OS and a long-lasting six-cell battery. The Lenovo IdeaPad S10e (starting at $379) is a good netbook that combines an attractive design and relatively fast hard drive with a compelling instant-on OS. We could do with less noise and a higher screen resolution, but otherwise we were happy with its performance. Parents and education buyers should still consider the CTL 2Go Convertible Classmate PC ($499) for younger students, but for students on the latter end of the K–12 spectrum, the $70 cheaper S10e is the way to go.

With all these manufacturers vying for a chunk of the market that ASUS created, it should prove to be a very interesting year from a buyer's perspective. Newer models with faster processors, more memory and other twists like the mini Tablet-PC convertible model from ASUS will only make the buying decision more difficult. From the consumer's side of the table it all looks good.

The IdeaPad S10e stands out from the netbook crowd thanks to its build quality, and some useful extras such as Quick Start and Rescue and Recovery to help users get their system up and running again if problems should occur. However, the standard three-cell battery pack will typically provide only a couple of hours' use so, although the IdeaPad is capable of running Office applications, buyers will probably need to add a larger battery pack to make it a serious mobile tool.

Most netbooks have very little to say for themselves aside from "I'm a netbook" and "so am I". Yet, despite sharing most of the elements that comprise all netbooks - an Intel Atom processor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 10.1in screen and a 160GB hard drive - Lenovo's IdeaPad S10e does at least have one unique feature; as well as Windows XP, it has an "instant-on" Linux operating system. Unfortunately for Lenovo, the IdeaPad S10e's most interesting feature, the instant-on operating system, isn't as compelling as it could be. Beyond this, it's a fairly run-of-the-mill netbook that offers mediocre battery life and poor keyboard ergonomics.

The Lenovo IdeaPad S10e is a good netbook, but not a great one. The screen is much better than average, but there are few other stand-out features. We were impressed by the quality of the chassis, but the keyboard didn’t live up to our expectations. Overall, it’s difficult to ignore the fact the keyboard isn’t up to the same standard as Lenovo’s other laptops, and the S10e feels like a missed opportunity.

The IdeaPad S10e shows that Lenovo was watching what all its major competitors were up to before entering the netbook fray. The addition of an ExpressCard slot makes it a more flexible solution than many of its competitors, but if it had a 6-cell battery in as standard then it would really push to challenge Asus's Eee PC range. Even so it's a winner.

Conveniently, there’s a trackpad on/off switch above the trackpad in deference to the fact that most people will prefer a mouse – a nice touch we’ve seen on only two netbooks to date. Overall, though, the battery life results mean that it’s just not as competitive as it needs to be against the range of current netbooks.

The flow of new netbooks may have slowed from a torrent to more of a trickle, but while there aren't many of the major manufacturers who are yet to make the plunge, there are some notable absentees. One name sorely missing from the lineup, at least until now, is Lenovo. If any manufacturer has the laptop-building pedigree to nail the netbook formula first time it's the manufacturer of the nigh-on-legendary ThinkPad range. The surprising thing is that it hasn't, and not by a long stretch. Rip open the endearingly tiny Lenovo box and the first moments with the IdeaPad S10e are promising. Lenovo's debut on the netbook scene isn't quite what we'd been hoping for.

There is little doubt that netbooks are here to stay, at least for the foreseeable future. A recent news article reported that netbooks are now more popular than Apple’s iPhone, which recently overtook the Motorola Razr as the most popular cell phone based on sales. The current generation of netbooks are not notebook/laptop killers, but once equipped with Intel’s Dual Core Atom processor in the coming months, they will be one step closer. Doubling the processing power will no doubt have an impact on performance and things like HD video playback should become a reality.

If the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 had come along 6 months ago, we probably would have crowned it the best little netbook around. But after having seen the likes of the Eee PC 1000H and the HP Mini 1001TU, the Lenovo comes off looking a little second-best. Take, for example, the connections -- the latest Eee models come with 3 USB ports, while the S10 has just two. Although it includes an expresscard slot, it has no Bluetooth. Overall, though, it's a product that's just not as competitive as it needs to be against the range of current netbook.

I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it. It has a lot of nice features at this price point and the connectivity isn't the worst, and carrying a nice LED 10.2” LCD is also great. However, I feel that there could be some improvements on some aspects and the touchpad could be slightly quieter. If you're looking for a fashion friendly netbook that doens't leave you stranded for some great function, I'd highly recommend it. However, being that the 6-cell version has been spotted but no sign of official release on our side of the pond, I'd have to say that the modest battery power might not be for some users, along with that kinda funky keyboard.

Lenovo's IdeaPad S10 is unique enough to turn some heads for those looking to purchase a netbook in an increasingly saturated market. It's definitely a sharp little system, design wise, and we think that in some of the more unique Lenovo color offerings, it will stand out more compared to the unit we have looked at today. However, to be frank, Lenovo hasn't brought anything truly outstanding to the table here, and there are also are some bits which we still think need some work. On the upside, Lenovo's very slim and stylish external bezel design is one of the better looking designs when the unit is closed for transportation. The front bezel is quite sharp, with its open-airflow design with integrated speakers.

Overall, Lenovo’s IdeaPad S10 is one of the best netbooks we have seen hit the market so far. It is not a huge upgrade from the likes of the 1000H and the Wind, but you get a solid keyboard, light system, and nicer form-factor then you might expect. Each of these tweaks on their own are rather minor, but they all add up to a netbook that is more refined than what we saw coming out a few months ago. What really impresses me day after day is how thin the system is, just like an ultraportable device should be. Of course, you really need that 6-cell battery, which will add to the size and weight, but you are still getting a very nice system. Readers should note that the configuration tested here is not exactly what is available from Lenovo.com right now, so read carefully before you pull out your credit card.

Well, while the Lenovo Ideapad S10 may not be particularly good-looking enough to stand out from the crowd, on the performance side there’s little to fault here. For one thing, the S10 actually feels quite solid, and yet light and small enough that it’ll easily fit in a knapsack. If I could single out the feature that makes this notebook worthy of consideration, it’s the keyboard — tactile feedback was actually surprisingly better than most notebooks I’ve tried and the size was just large enough for easy touch typing. As far as the ExpressCard slot goes, I’m not sure it’s really all that useful but Lenovo has managed to add one in without really — impacting the small size of the notebook so I guess if you need it, it’s there.

Although more manufacturers are jumping into the netbook area due to the increase in consumer demand, the hardware found in netbooks has remained generally similar due to what's current and available out there (for instance, Intel's Atom is the present unanimous choice). Therefore, the focus has started shifting to the overall build and design aspects of the netbook. The size of the keyboard, number of ports, LED panels are but some of the features that manufacturers are touting in their products in order to differentiate from the competition. Of course, some vendors have opted to retain a vaguely similar look and feel to the ASUS Eee PC series that started it all, but Lenovo's S10 is definitely not one of these.

If you're looking for a big, beefy hard drive and surprisingly sprightly performance from a mini-notebook, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 is a solid pick. If the S10's slightly cramped keyboard and loose mouse buttons are deal breakers for you, Asus's Eee 1000H would suit you much better. Though the Eee 1000H has a little more girth, it will definitely get you through your next business trip.

Lenovo is a bit late with their IdeaPad S10 netbook laptop computer but they did a good overall job of making it a bit different from what others have to offer. It make look like just about another other 10-inch sized netbook but it has the advantage of being more flexible for expansion thanks to the inclusion of the ExpressCard slot. Of course, if this isn't something you might need, then there are less expensive or more flexible netbook options.

The rapid emergence of netbooks, or UMPCs (ultramobile PCs), over the past year has changed the landscape of affordable mobile computing. Although these little ultraportables are meant to satisfy your most basic computing needs, an imaginative user can take them well beyond their intended roles. Only a few netbooks have gotten it right so far, and the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 ($469 direct) is one of them. Its right stuff includes a 10-inch screen, Intel Atom processor, 160GB hard drive, ExpressCard slot, and a price as sweet as the MSI Wind's. With Lenovo's crafty engineering team, it's surprising that the design is basically the same as those of the competition—the MSI Wind, the Acer Aspire One, and the ASUS EeePC 900. The S10 is clad in white (a red version is also available), and its dimensions of 7.3 by 9.8 by 0.9 inches (HWD) are similar to those of the Wind.

All in all, we were pleased with the thin design and ExpressCard/34 slot despite the netbook's small size. The S10 performed well, though it didn't blow us out of the water -- it's a good little netbook, but really just another one to add to the ever-growing pile. Our biggest disappointment was the battery life, which was merely average when we expected it to excel. But that isn't a deal-breaker, since other 3-cell notebooks gave similar results.

Lenovo’s IdeaPad S10 hews closely to the basic netbook formula established by the Acer Aspire One, Asus Eee PC, and MSI Wind. The lightweight netbook has a couple of unique features, but nothing that makes it stand out like the HP 2133 Mini-Note’s hi-res screen or the Dell Inspiron Mini 9’s distinctive case design. The Lenovo S10’s ExpressCard slot is the one element that makes this otherwise average netbook stand out.

Well, the answer isn't simple, particularly considering the way that new netbooks seem to arrive every week. The S10 does several things right that we wish more manufacturers did with their netbooks. First, Lenovo was smart enough to realize and ExpressCard slot is important if you want to make a netbook useful.

Those who follow the ever-growing Netbook market have been waiting for one conspicuous straggler to arrive. Lenovo's IdeaPad S10 Netbook was announced way back on August 4, but only started shipping in late September. Lenovo's "me, too!" entry in the Netbook sweepstakes, the IdeaPad S10, gets the price and features right, but falls behind on battery life.

More than half a dozen mini-notebooks are currently available with identical 1.6-GHz Intel Atom processors and Windows XP Home operating systems. With so few differences between competing models, any innovation—a stylish look, a better keyboard, a bundled piece of software, or even an extra port—becomes paramount. Lenovo’s first foray into the netbook space has some nice touches: a stylish and compact chassis, full-featured back-up software, a speedy hard drive, and a screen with great viewing angles. Unfortunately, it also has a smaller keyboard and touchpad than its 10-inch rivals. At $449, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 is within $30 of the street price for the three-cell MSI Wind ($479 street) and comparable to the six-cell ASUS Eee PC 1000H.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).
Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
Lenovo: Lenovo Group Limited is China's largest and the world's fourth largest personal computer manufacturer. Lenovo produces desktops, laptops, servers, handheld computers, imaging equipment, and mobile phone handsets. Lenovo also provides information technology integration and support services, and its QDI unit offers contract manufacturing. Its executive headquarters are located in China and USA.
