Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t

LAPTOP Magazine
1 March 2010
  • Summary: The S10-3t does some things right. It's fairly light for a convertible, offers accurate touch input, and it has a comfortable keyboard. And, provided you get the 8-cell battery, you’ll see 7 hours of unplugged computing time. However, this machines’ sluggish performance and weak wireless range hold it back. If you want a netbook with touch capability, the S10-3t is worth considering, but this netvertible didn't quite live up to our expectations.
  • Pros: Bright and responsive multitouch display, Comfortable keyboard, Lightweight for a convertible, Instant-on OS, ,
  • Cons: Poor battery life with 4-cell battery, Sluggish performance, Weak wireless range, Tiny touchpad, ,

Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2

PC Magazine
26 February 2010
  • Conclusion: The S10-2 is a 10-inch netbook that does little to impress and is better off taking a pass on.
  • Pros: Color variations offered. Very light despite a 6-cell battery.
  • Cons: Keyboard is too small for a 10-inch netbook. Touchpad and mouse buttons are puny in size. Price is too high for a below average netbook. ExpressCard slot is gone.

Lenovo Ideapad S10-3

PC Magazine
24 February 2010
  • Conclusion: The Lenovo ThinkPad S10-3 is one of the few 10-inch netbooks that can pull-off a full size keyboard, but it sacrificed the touchpad in the process.
  • Pros: Full size keyboard. Attractive designs. Very light chassis, even with the 6-cell battery. Inexpensive.
  • Cons: Irritating navigating experience. Small hard drive. Not very configurable.

Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3

LAPTOP Magazine
19 February 2010
  • Summary: Lenovo did a lot of things right with the S10-3. Its design and keyboard are much improved over the previous generation, the speakers are positively booming (for a netbook), and its instant-on environment is easily the most attractive among netbooks. However, like the Dell Inspiron Mini 10, we’re not enamored with the touchpad and integrated buttons. So far, the only company that has gotten this right is Apple, although they have a lot more real estate to work with.
  • Pros: Top-notch keyboard, Excellent instant-on operating system, Useful bundled utilities, Loud speakers,
  • Cons: Finicky touchpad with stiff integrated buttons, Small hard drive for the price, Shorter battery life than competition,

  • Conclusion: The problem with the S10-2 is that there is nothing outstanding about it. It feels as though Lenovo wanted to release a “no-frills” netbook with the S10-2. Yes, you might argue that all netbooks are similarly configured but at least you can get a better design or better battery life out of some of the other models by other vendors for the same price.

Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2

LAPTOP Magazine
3 July 2009
  • Summary: The $399 Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 is light, highly portable, and gets decent endurance. Its screen is bright and its Quick Start instant-on operating system is convenient and attractive. All of these things make it the S10-2 a solid choice, but not the best choice when compared to other netbooks such as the Toshiba mini NB205 or ASUS Eee PC 1005 HA. For the same price or less, you can get much longer endurance, a better keyboard, and a more attractive design.
  • Pros: Bright colorful screen, Attractive instant-on OS, Light weight,
  • Cons: Polarizing design, Poor keyboard, Mediocre battery life,

A 10.1in netbook that includes a Splashtop interface

Good Gear Guide.au
15 March 2010
  • Summary: Physically, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 is a run-of-the-mill netbook without anything to make it stand out from other mini-notebooks on the Australian market. However, it includes a fine implementation of Splashtop, which allows you to use the netbook for Web browsing and other basic tasks without booting into Windows.
  • Pros: Good implementation of Splashtop, well built, slightly higher resolution than the IdeaPad S10e
  • Cons: Shorter than expected battery life, slightly sluggish performance, small palm rest, lacks an ExpressCard/34 slot

  • Excerpt: But while a netbook is great for simple tasks such as browsing the web, writing documents, listening to music or watching standard-definition videos, it just doesn't have enough CPU power to smoothly run a touchscreen. On the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t, the overall user experience can be very frustrating; the problem is not only a lack of grunt, but a poor software implementation as well as a far from ideal screen design.
