Review Lenovo IdeaPad S12 ION Netbook

Notebookcheck
27 June 2010
  • 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: Whether it has been the slumping economy , the improvements in technology or just the desire of gadget-lovers to want everything miniaturized, netbook-style portable computers have been the rage for the last year. The industry standard started off at about 7 inches, followed by the current generation that sizes up at around 10 inches.

Lenovo IdeaPad S12 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
14 July 2009
  • Summary: As 12-inch netbooks go, the Lenovo IdeaPad S12 and the Samsung NC20 are fairly evenly matched in terms of ergonomics, performance, and endurance. While the NC20's list price is $549, it can be found online for $499, the same as the S12. We slightly prefer the design of the NC20--it does a better job at concealing its battery and feels a more sturdy--but the S12 is better in other ways.
  • Pros: Large, comfortable keyboard, Good battery life, Instant-on OS, Excellent audio quality
  • Cons: Battery sticks out the back, Polarizing design

  • Cons: Preço fora da faixa dos netbooks. Desempenho esbarra em velocidade e autonomia de bateria. Sacrificou o leitor de cartão. Pesado para um netbook.

Análisis del Netbook Lenovo IdeaPad S12 ION

Notebookcheck.es
25 July 2012
  • Conclusion: El IdeaPad S12 es un netbook relativamente grande y está bien diseñado que yace en la línea divisoria entre sub-portátiles y netbooks . Debido a la plataforma Ion, el netbook tiene cierto poder gráfico, y el usuario puede utilizar juegos antiguos en el netbook, pero a pesar de la promesa de Nvidia, que el sistema puede manejar videos HD, estamos decepcionados de reportar que el netbook tiene muchos problemas con ello.

Ikke helt minibærbar

komputer.no
25 May 2011
  • Summary: Den helt nye Lenovo S12 er et godt eksempel på denne utviklingen. Den har en 12,1 tommer stor LED-skjerm og dimensjoner som er litt større enn en vanlig minibærbar. Allikevel er prisen bare 4000 kroner. Forklaringen er at resten av ma-skinen er utstyrt som en vanlig minibærbar. Det vil si en ikke altfor kraftig Intel Atom-prosessor, ingen optisk stasjon, 1 GB minne og en harddisk på 160 GB.
  • Pros: God skjerm, Fullt tastatur, Mekanisk kvalitet og design
  • Cons: Bare 1 GB minne, Forholdsvis stor
