The Full Lenovo IdeaPad S10 Review

Hotly Sleek

Hotly Sleek

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've read our preview the last time, you'll probably remember what the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 looked like, but if you didn't, don't panic, we're still providing plenty of pictures for your viewing pleasure. Specification tables after the pictures, but don't expect much variation in terms of the hardware from other netbooks besides the inclusion of an ExpressCard slot.

Question: Is the Lenovo sleek and hot looking? Answer: Yes to both.

The front panel plays hosts to the speakers and the indicator lights.

The right side of the unit features an ExpressCard/34 slot, the headphone jacks, a USB 2.0 port and a RJ-45 LAN port. Located on the hinge is a Kensington Lock slot.
