Looks like the new Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3 and the S10-3T tablet netbooks are here and local prices aren’t that bad too.

Local PC retailer, Villman, is listing the two new IdeaPad models as follows:

1GB DDR2 RAM
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth
6-cell Li-Ion battery
Multi-touch trackpad
Windows 7 Starter
Price: Php23,900


Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3T
10.1″ touch-screen display @ 1024×600 pixels
Intel Atom N450 @ 1.66GHz
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150

1GB DDR2 RAM

The design and form factor looks interesting, especially with the tablet model. The keys on the keyboard also inherited the same edgy & concave shapes.

    wow… a tablet for Php 29,900. That’s a good deal. But having a Intel Atom N450 @ 1.66GHz will sure take it’s tol on the applications and feature that you will run on the machine.

    They should have made it to atleast a dual core.

    ^^ i believe they will never make a perfect dream machine. (marketing-wise)

    A Php29K++ tablet netbook! Now, I’m impressed! Hope the battery last longer.

  4. Jhay says:

    This would make a good Valentine’s Day gift. :D

    But an running Windows 7 on an Atom?

  5. cris says:

    That single core Atom is a downer.

    Better if they installed a dual core Atom with some ATI card…

  6. braindead says:

    is windows 7 really that bad on atom vs xp on an atom?

  7. yesman says:

    @braindead
    yes, because windows 7 has higher hardware requirements compared to windows XP.

    the only advantage of windows 7 over xp is its more advanced touch screen features relative to this touch tablet BUT with the 3T, having an atom processor and poor vgu / graphics card, the concept is put to waste.

    if you still can’t say no to this deal, the best upgrade you can do is max the RAM at 2gb ddr2, and if you can upgrade the HD with a 7200 rpm one(not sure if possible).

    fyi: netbooks with xp are very capable of being fast and play games. my gf has a hp pink mini with n280 atom, 2gb ddr, and 160 hd.

    it opens and shuts down very fast, can play flash based and play station emulators, itunes, and plays movies flawlessly.

    thanks yesman.. i guess ill just wait. im planning to load photoshop for mobility when shooting outdoor. :)

    Hindi po ba madaling masira yan?

    mmmm. the price is not bad. not bad at all.

  11. yesman says:

    even here in the philippines, there are a lot of bnew 14-15″ core duo laptops under 30k(try hp, laptops from 25k coreduo with dedicated ati 256mb graphics), msi has core 2 duo thats around 32k++, its very light too like the macbook. but i believe they dont come with an original windows, you can always purchase one separately in the future.

    please remember that netbooks are only good for browsing, ms office, listening to music and watching movies, and even low graphics games.
    but never for multitasking, heavy apps( photo shops, editing softwares) and new PC games like modern warfare 2, mass effect 2, etc.

    if you can wait, the lenovo 3t is already being sold for 25-26k at dealers price. give it a few weeks and i see the price dropping to sub 25k.

    @adrian in general, lenovos are pretty reliable. my y530 was drowned by ondoy, but after some cleaning and drying ,it was running modern warfare 2 at 25-29 fps at medium settings with a 256mb nvidia:P

    I was able to use an MSI Wind 90 running Windows 7. The system runs fine on 1GB RAM, even with the fancy aero effects – but XP is still faster. My only gripe with XP on anything is that it’s nearing end of life, AND I wanted to use Connectify wifi sharing which only works on Windows 7.

  13. Vance says:

    The lenovo S10-3 seems nice but it should lower the price to 18K…

    The MSI U210X and U230X sell for 22 to 23K but it has dual core athlon neo x2 l335..

  14. yuga says:

    @vance – the difference is in the OS. The MSI has no OS while the Lenovo has Windows 7. So you’re right that the one without the OS could be in the 18k range.

    @adrian – there’s a 1 year warranty for that.

  15. yesman says:

    if you are the type of user that “casually” uses a computer..a netbook is enough for you. you cant beat a netbooks size ,weight and price. but if you have the dough ,go with ultra portables.

    but with this price at 30k, you can already get a decent laptop at that price. with a core 2 duo, you will almost never need more power from a processor and can run 64 bit windows(utilize 3 or more gb of RAM)=faster everything.

    also keep in mind the graphics card, get one that is “dedicated” (at least 256mb ati or nvidia) meaning it has its own memory, and does not borrow memory. it helps alot when it comes to gaming ,graphics heavy apps, and multi-tasking.

    when a computer has less computer(task manager, ctrl+alt+delete) usage meaning not “maxed” all the time, it will definitely last longer, less wear and tear.

    i’m looking for the best netbook to buy. my first option was to buy the lenovo s10-2, but i got a fancy for the toshiba nb305. and now, the s10-3. which should i choose? i like the sleek design of the nb305. but i can’t find any reviews yet for this one.

  17. zgkent says:

    Currently running windows 7 ultimate on an msi u100 n280 @ 2gb ram, so far so good;I’m hoping that the tablet’s battery lasts 5hrs+ or more, might get one soon.

  18. Vance says:

    @yuga, yes it has windows 7 but it is only a starter edition <-give away OS?? hehe. for me there should be an option to have windows 7 starter or not.. lowering the price down.. the price is at 23K but for the same price you get more power and better video card…

  19. Vance says:

    @yuga, yes it has windows 7 but it is only a starter edition… the U230x, you can grab one from megamall (rumored) for as low P21,500

    I know this are new netbooks. definetly good if the price has lowered down..

  20. Sourav says:

    I bought S-10-3 with Lenovo cover sleeve (MRP Rs.1000/-) for 20350/- (total including 4% VAT and no credit card charges) from Lenovo dealer in K. R. Road, Bangalore.

  22. Dominique Balabat says:

    I just bought my S10-3t online on amazon… it’s configuration is the same as with Microsoft’s advertisement… bought it for only $499 and it really is super cheap!!!

    I bought it the moment i saw it on Amazon as one of the most wanted wishes/gifts. I feel in love at first sight… LOL…

    Do a research before you buy. I only researched about 2 hours on it. Now, I’m waiting for the 1 month delivery from a forwarder in US.
    :D

  23. rob says:

  24. Ace Jobs says:
