Review Lenovo Ideapad S10e Netbook

 

Ambivalent Newcomer. Alike nearly all big and small manufacturers

Mostly quiet; WLAN, LAN, Bluetooth; Low temperatures; Good expandability via ExpressCard/34; Warranty extension up to 36 month possible

Reflecting display, not appropriate for outdoor operation; Keyboard layout needs time to get used to.; Location of interfaces partly inconvenient; Test sample had minimal defects in terms of workmanship; Depending on the applications the fan is quiet,...

The competitors like Asus Eee PC 1000H and Samsung NC10 are clearly better than the Ideapad S10e in important key aspects, display and battery life, but loose in expandability.

Review Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3 Netbook

 

Stable case, High-end looks, Long battery life, Quiet and cool, Awesome! A glossy lid completely without greasy, ugly fingerprints. Lenovo has earned the gratitude of many agonized netbook users

Yielding keyboard, Not AR coated, Low application performance, An AR-coated display would have made the mini to an almost perfect companion. But this way, many will likely cross out the S10-3 from the shopping list

The IdeaPad S10-3 is so new that the manufacturer didn't even have the time to put it on their German product homepage. The S10-3 M33D6GE black is already listed in online shops, though. The price of 329 euro shows that Lenovo doesn't regard the price...

Lenovo IdeaPad S10

 

For the most part, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 is your standard netbook. It's small, lightweight, and sturdy and runs on Intel's Atom platform. We like that our review unit shipped with a 160GB 5,400rpm hard drive—as opposed to the small budget SSDs found...

Nice bright matte screen, roomy hard drive, decent looks

Only two USB ports, and they’re on opposite sides of the machine

The S10 shows a lot of promise, and its style and performance are nothing to sneeze at. At $470, it’s a serious challenger to the $500 Wind and even boasts twice the hard disk space. But two USB ports are one too few. And we still maintain that the...

Lenovo Ideapad S10

 

The slim portable design is unmistakably very 'netbook'. The S10 doesn't have much to distinguish itself from the competition at first look. It's pretty regular-sized at 9.8 x 7.2 x 1.2 inches and is as light as one would expect, at around 2.6 lbs with...

At an excellent budget price of Rs 25,000 (MRP), the S10 is well worth the money you spend on it. It's not perfect, but it performs a lot better (and even has more features) than most of the competition. If you're in the market for a netbook, I'd say...

Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet K1 1304 (tablet, Android 3.1, Honeycomb, 32 GB, 10.1", black, leather like bottom with aluminum frame)

 

Since the release of the first Android Honeycomb tablet (the Motorola Xoom), we've seen a parade of more or less identical devices. Some are thinner or sport better cameras or extra ports, but they all run the same software on the same 1GHz dual-core...

Lenovo's IdeaPad K1 packs in all of the best features found in today's modern Honeycomb tablets and offers some unique Android optimizations and preloaded apps

The design is thick and heavy compared with the latest from Apple and Samsung, not all of the Android tweaks pay off, and the screen isn't as bright as it could be

Lenovo plays it safe with the IdeaPad K1, delivering a solid tablet that does little to stand out from the Honeycomb herd.

Lenovo IdeaPad S10 (Red)

 

ExpressCard slot. Different color options. Extended 52-Wh battery is included. Featherlight. Very good battery life. Decent performer. Linux preload is nice

89 percent keyboard doesn't make the cut. Noisy mouse buttons. Tiny touchpad

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 IdeaPad S10 Laptop Review

 

Great software suite for a netbook ; Some smart nips and tucks

If only it had a bigger touchpad

This retake on the S10 is still a finely-tuned netbook, but this update really could've used a bigger touchpad.

Lenovo IdeaPad S10 Review (Update)

 

What might look like a giant beefy hinge for the 10-inch display is actually the new 6-cell battery with a small hinge on either side of the tiny laptop. The larger battery doesn't add much bulk to the netbook, but the two-tone appearance makes this...

Small and light but well built and durable ; VeriFace provides simple security ; Easy to upgrade RAM and hard drive ; 6-cell battery is great ; ExpressCard slot offers extra expansion options

Gets a little hot ; Only two USB ports ; Quick Start OS is nice, but not entirely practical ; What happened to Bluetooth

The headphone jack on the S10 works well with the three different brands of earphones I used during the test. No static or other noise was noticed through the jack besides imperfections in the audio source itself

Lenovo IdeaPad S10e

 

Lenovo's popular netbook, repackaged for the education market, offers an instant-on OS and nearly five hours of battery life.

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...

Lenovo Ideapad S10

 

Lenovo's "me, too!" entry in the netbook sweepstakes, the IdeaPad S10, gets the price and features right, but falls behind on battery life.

Includes ExpressCard slot, Decent keyboard

No SSD hard drive options, Unimpressive battery life
