Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 Unwrapped

Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 Unwrapped

Lenovo’s next generation netbook is now slimmer and lighter — the IdeaPad S10-2. I got an engineering unit for a quick review so some aspects might differ from the ones sold commercially.

Lenovo did some major revamps in the design and style of the IdeaPad S10. While the earlier S9 and S10 models looked business-like, the S10-2 looked more stylish with some glossy, wallpaper-pattern finish on the lid.

The IdeaPad S10-2 also has a Quick Start menu powered by SplashTop, an Instant-On Linux platform that provides quick access to most common applications such as a browser, chat , etc.


Biggest upgrade from the previous model is the inclusion of a SIM card slot (found at the back of the battery compartment) for 3G connection.

    Can’t trade in laptops like cars.
    Think this :
    20 years old car can do the same thing as the new one.
    20 years old laptop??? Their place is in the trash bin

    @Jhay: Me too! I hate fanboys but becoming one for Lenovo is just perfectly sensible with me. =)

  13. That’s a quiet impressive netbook. Nice features and nice design. Will surely buy one.

    It looks great. so far ive had it for 2 weeks and ive had no issues with it.. too early perhaps? maybe… but consider this, I originaly bought a neo b1230 but had to exchange it for the lenovo because the neo will not power on after owning it for (get this) ONE DAY!
