A Better than 10" Netbook

M. Sims, Amazon
25 March 2010
  • Summary: I researched Netbooks to death. I started out with reading Reviews, then my friend brought the Toshiba NB205, which is awesome! I went back and forth from so many models to be honest with you I thought I was going crazy.

Great...with some tweaks

  • Summary: This was a relatively sound choice for a netbook when it was first released. The 12" form factor means that typing and touchpad are comfortable (i.e., the keyboard and touchpad are normal sizes for laptops). The computer is light and fairly sturdy.

Excellent Travel Notebook

Daniel Clark, Amazon
21 February 2010
  • Summary: Had this laptop for 6 months and it is excellent. I use it on trips. The HDMI out is great for watching shows on hotel room TVs. The laptop is very response. I particularly like the "QuickStart" feature that boots to a separate Linux installation in 10 seconds. From there you can skype, surf...

Netflix HD does not work

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 February 2010
  • Summary: The all-great nVidia ION graphics card is full HD compatible and is supposed to take over the image processing since the CPU is not that powerful. However, Netflix uses Microsoft Silverlight to provide HD streaming and it does not work with the Atom-Ion combination.

As slow as watching the grass grow...

Tom Music, Amazon
21 February 2010
  • Summary: I was reading a lot before deciding on getting this computer. It had favorable reviews overall, and I was excited about the prospect of a netbook with a good full-size keyboard and a decent graphics processor plus the HDMI out.

Love it

Nikhil Prashar, Amazon
12 January 2010
  • Summary: A little slow when you're running too much at once, but I love this notebook. Just small enough yet a good size screen, lightweight. I never think twice about tossing it into my bag because it might add too much weight. The battery life is a solid four hours two months into consistent, daily use.

Careful when you order

J. Spagnuolo, Amazon
30 October 2009
  • Summary: Lenovo's S12 page was not very descriptive so I called tech support to ask if this had the NVIDIA ION platform and was told yes, the 2959 has had the NVIDIA ION for a few months now. WRONG!
