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.

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

I like the size, it works for me

tried to replace HDD with 256gb SSD and install fresh copy of windows with no success. Never had a problem like this with other brands

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
