Hvilken ThinkPad notebook pc-modeller er berørt af tilbagekaldelsen?
Conclusion: The IdeaPad S12 is a relatively big and well-designed netbook which lies at the borderline between subnotebook and netbook . Due to the Ion-platform the netbook has some graphics power and the user can play older games on the netbook, but despite Nvidias promise that the system could handle HD videos we are disappointed to report that the netbook has many problems with them. Just like the other members of the IdeaPad family, the S12 has its own weaknesses.
Pros: Attractive design, Big keyboard, High 3D performance compared to other netbooks, Extensive connectivity, The rather simple design which still has many unique features.
Cons: Display hinges are loud and only offer a few angles for the monitor, Small touchpad, Expensive, Case warms up when the CPU is under heavy usage, The graphics power is there, now one just has to install a better processor.
Summary: The Lenovo IdeaPad S12 with NVIDIA ION graphics costs about $170 more than the version with integrated graphics. Is it worth the extra price? That depends on how important the extra graphics capabilities are to you. In terms of everyday performance, you probably won’t notice a difference between the two machines.
Summary: There's certainly a lot to like about the Lenovo IdeaPad S12-29595GU, including Ion graphics, a relatively large keyboard, ample RAM, OneKey backup, and lots of storage. However, the $649 asking price for this netbook on steroids is considerably higher than the similarly configured $574 HP Mini 311, which offers an hour of additional battery life.
Excerpt: The guts of the Lenovo IdeaPad S12 are virtually identical to the IdeaPad S10 that we reviewed back in 2008 —1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB DDR2 RAM, 160GB HDD, and integrated Intel GMA950 graphics. The difference is the body. At 11.4 inches wide, this is one of the largest “netbooks” we’ve ever tested. The S12 has a 12.1-inch WXGA screen with a 1280x800 native resolution—far superior to the netbook-standard 1024x600, and much more usable.
Excerpt: The 12-inch netbook is a strange beast. It’s a netbook (at least in terms of its Atom processor and a sub-$600 price tag), but sized like an ultraportable notebook. We haven’t seen many of them and we’ve seen a lot of indecision from the companies that have released them. Case in point, the short-lived Dell Mini 12, which was the focus of much speculation throughout its life (and before it), but was unceremoniously replaced by an 11.6-inch model, the Inspiron 11z.
Summary: The Lenovo S12 is a portable, affordable, and multimedia-minded netbook with a full-size keyboard and decent battery life. Its 12.1-inch screen makes the S12 big enough for those who lament the tininess of a 9- or 10-inch screen, yet it still retains its netbook status.
