Review Lenovo IdeaPad S210 Touch 20257 Notebook


Small, handy, whisper-quiet. Lenovo wants to make a small subnote

24 months warranty; Whisper-quiet operation; Small and handy

Battery runtimes could be longer; Low-contrast display with blue cast

Lenovo gives the small IdeaPad a 24-month warranty. This is very uncommon for the low price segment.

Great portable laptop


Really happy with this purchase.

1. Touch Screen- I really liked this feature. It works really well. Civilization 5 is a great way to explore the touchscreen as well ; 2. Windows 8- I like the look and the feel of it ; 3. Can run some games- Fallout NV can run on here as well as...

Runs hot on some games (as expected, this isn't designed for gaming) ; The upgrade to 8.1 took away some programs for some reason. I don't know the fix for this

Defective HDD, RMA


Asked for an exchange in RMA. Other than HDD, a great notebook!

Like windows 8.1, lightweight and easy mobility, almost as light as some tablets. I am use to Windows 7 so an easy move to 8.1. Like the touchscreen

Hard drive was defective. According to HD disk sentinel there were 8 bad sectors a few days after start using it. Tested also with HDTune Pro and S.M.A.R.T. indicated problems with relocation of files. Seagate Sea Tool gave the Short Test a Fail....

Great but a few problems


This is a nice laptop and for the price its great. The quality of the screen is also a good one-up The touchscreen is very smooth with not much friction.

Very zippy and has a a lot of potential haven't tried any emulator benchmarks but as i said its fast and VERY VERY sturdy. a well built machine

battery life is kinda weeksuace it only lasts for 1 to 2 hours long which inst that bad but still should last longer

Nice little Touch Netbook


Basic info for uEFI install from USB drive: Installing Windows to a GPT-partitioned drive:. For example only your drives may differ: D: = Windows Media E: = 4GB+ USB Drive 1. Format a USB stick (at least 4GB free space) using FAT32 (NTFS will not...

Touch Screen, Small, Quick, As always great keyboard!, Touchpad & buttons are awesome... unlike the newer ThinkPad's in this price range this has a PC touchpad and buttons not stupid APPLE touchpad buttons combo.............. hate them... useless

Only con is the uEFI system if you install a new SSD drive (you void the warranty…) and you have to build a special USB load of Windows 8 / 8.1. The standard Windows 8 USB install configuration will not work… after googling the problem, it works great

Did not have the same specs that BB advertised.


I ordered this laptop thinking that it had a 6 cell battery, because that was what BB said on website specs. When I went to store to pick it up, it only had a 3 cell battery. I cancelled the order, because there are many complaints on the Lenovo...

Not sure

3 cell battery

Its a great computer. I just don't like the keyboard so much. Its springy and sticky all at once, if that makes sense. You have to press really hard especially if you are using keyboard commands. Otherwise it is a really good computer to take wherever...
