Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t

80% Review Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t Convertible | Notebookcheck
Up to the challenge? The IdeaPad S10-3t Convertible from Lenovo is a combination of netbook and tablet which could be described stylishly as a "netvertible”. The older Intel Atom N450 single core processor and a flood of tablet novelties didn’t make things easy for our tester.

The Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t leaves a lot to be desired and I don’t think this kind of form factor is going to be relevant moving forward. The performance just isn’t up to snuff and I’d be more inclined to buy a 15-inch notebook with a “real” processor than a netbook like this given the price point. On the tablet front, again, you’re better off with a real tablet with a more tablet-appropriate operating system.

Lenovo IdeaPad S10: A Miniature Tablet
Source: Inside HW English Archive.org version
You may end up with the impression that we’ve had many remarks to this small Lenovo Ideapad. That may be true, but Ideapad S10-3t proved to be one of those devices that you like despite its flaws. Once you learn to appreciate its advantages, such as display rotation, as well as finger-controlling your computer’s screen, you’ll be quick to realise why.

Lenovo's IdeaPad S10-3T is the a netbook with a swivelling touchscreen. Although this is certainly a different design and works as expected, the heavy chassis – due to the large battery -is a major letdown.

If the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t were simply a netbook, it would be a decent offering. It offers middle-of -the-road performance, a decent keyboard, and a compact, light weight case. I’d be happier with a larger touchpad and a more powerful battery, but I’d also be happier with world peace and a million bucks in my pocket. We can’t always have everything.

Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t Multi-Touch Tablet/Netbook Review
Source: Hot Hardware English Archive.org version
We were very excited about the ThinkPad X100e we evaluated a couple of weeks back, but we're somewhat underwhelmed with the IdeaPad S10-3t. We expected this machine to be so much more, particularly considering its price, which is far higher than most other netbooks and/ or entry-level tablets. Using the touch screen on this netbook doesn't have enough utility. We're not really sure it's worth the extra investment.

The Lenovo Ideapad S10-3t sells for Rs. 30,740. That's a few thousand rupees more than a competitive Eee PC T91. The Ideapad S10-3t comparatively offers a lot more than the T91 -- a slightly larger screen, a traditional 250GB hard drive (as opposed to the paltry 32GB SSD storage), a newer-generation Atom processor and a better battery life. But not providing a stylus means Lenovo wants people to use the touchscreen mainly for media. That's where the argument begins, what are you really looking for? If you want to use a media consumption device, then an iPad will offer a UI experience like no other. If you are looking for a PC, then a regular netbook, which is much cheaper than this one, would suffice.

Overall, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t seems more of a proof of concept than anything else. As a tablet, it’s not fun to use and it will have a negative impact on your productivity. Things could be better if Windows 7 Home Premium was installed, but the hardware also needs some tweaking. A screen with edge-to-edge glass would make scrolling a lot more comfortable and responsive; a trimmed-down hinge design would probably allow for a deeper palm rest and larger touchpad; and a webcam at the centre of the screen would make it possible to use the netbook for video conferencing. It’s clear that netbooks with touchscreens aren’t prime-time material yet.

The Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t is a tablet-convertible netbook with a touchscreen. However, a poor software implementation, slow CPU and a unfriendly design make it a frustrating product to use. An on-screen keyboard is not supplied, the screen gestures place a lot of strain on the CPU and aren't always recognised, and the design of screen itself is not good enough for touch input. On the plus side, it has a great keyboard and long battery life.

Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t Review
Source: Slashgear English Archive.org version
It’s unfortunate, but the fact that the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t promises so much – multitouch, usability both while desk-bound and while mobile – makes it all the more disappointing when it falls short. The occasional periods of sluggishness that all netbooks encounter are somehow exponentially more frustrating when you’re trying to interact via the touchscreen, and the choice of either battery life or holding-comfort is a disappointing one to have to make.

Netbooks come in many variations, but few have had success as convertible tablets. Part of the problem is cost, since a rotating hinge and touch display are drive up the cost. Demand for tablets hasn't exactly been surging either, well, aside from the Apple iPad. If you can past the single-piece touchpad and lackluster speeds, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t is one of the few netbooks that have a rotating touch display.

The S10-3t does some things right. It's fairly light for a convertible, offers accurate touch input, and it has a comfortable keyboard. And, provided you get the 8-cell battery, you’ll see 7 hours of unplugged computing time. However, this machines’ sluggish performance and weak wireless range hold it back. If you want a netbook with touch capability, the S10-3t is worth considering, but this netvertible didn't quite live up to our expectations.

For those turned off by the Apple iPad’s lack of certain features (no keyboard or Flash support, for instance), it’s nice to know that other tablet options are available. One of them, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t convertible tablet, delivers a bunch of ports and features that the iPad won't have. Good-looking and sturdy, this netbook/tablet combo improves on previous tablet designs, but its performance lags behind that of the competition.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150: Integrated (shared memory) graphics card in the intel Atom N4xx CPUs. Minimally faster than an old GMA 950 and therefore not suited for 3D games or HD videos (only MPEG2 acceleration).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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).


N450:

Intel Atom CPU for Netbooks with integrated memory controller and GMA 3150 GPU. The performance of the system should be only minimally faster than the previous Atom N280 / GMA 950 combination.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.10":

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.55 kg:

This weight is typical for very old and big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal; nowadays, rather typical for 15 inch laptops.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


63.93%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
