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. All in all this machine has a few pros but too many cons that outweigh them and hence the low rating: Pros: - Terrific keyboard - HDMI out - Good graphics processor - Lightweight (duh) - Large Hard Drive Cons: - Single core, slow as molasses...
Unreliable hardware and post sales customer service
L. Johnson, Amazon
26 January 2010
Summary: Although an excellent design and a good buy at the price, this and another Lenovo laptop I have purchased have proved unreliable with significant problems right out of the box, and great difficulty in resolving. The Lenovo Ideapad S12 failed to establish and maintain an wireless connection (802.11g). This was established working with a very helpful Lenovo technical support representative who provided a case number and a telephone number for customer support at sales.
