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.
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.
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.

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
