Excerpt: This was a birthday gift for my 9 year old. She wanted a laptop and we found this at a very reasonable price. She loves it! It's the perfect size for her and she is able to do everything that she wants to do, on it. I occasionally borrow it and use it, also. It's very handy.
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...
Summary: I've had this laptop for longer than a year. Things I love about it are the keyboard, the screen is very nice, the sd card slot, and it doesn't look cheap -- it looks very stylish. It's very fun to use. The only drawbacks to this computer would be the crappy webcam, the fact that it is a pretty slow computer. But I also am running photoshop, and a bunch of applications on it at the same time, and I can notice only some lag.
Summary: The display of the S12 is marvelous, so crispy! I use it to browse internet, word processing and watch online stream movies. Never experience difficulties, it fits my requirement. so no complains.
Summary: I have purchased 2 of these now, they don't have an HDMI or are super fast, but they are a good price for what you get. I got both of them on holiday sales less then $400. What I really like is the screen and the keyboard, both are usable unlike the 10 inch netbooks. The led back lit display is very bright outdoors and viewable on a sunny day. The keyboard is almost full size and best netbook keyboard I have used, even as good as my Thinkpads keyboard.
Excerpt: I bought into the netbook craze early. I own an Asus EEE 701. I got it just so I could have something to get on the internet with when I needed to while in class. After I graduated, it fell into disuse. Rather than be imprisoned in that tiny screen, I stole away to our home office for some...
Summary: I've not worked extensively with this machine, so can't comment on performance other than to say it seems fine for basics, and runs cool. The screen is very nice and very bright, and the keyboard has a lovely feel. Track pad response is very good and reliable. The track pad buttons are small and very stiff - endurable, but a much better situation if you're comfortable with `tapping' on the track pad. The case seems solid and well-constructed, with a stout hinge.
Summary: I'm not easily impressed, but this is a wonderful product. I bought it for a college kid who wanted a Mac and only a Mac, because that is what the university was pushing and that is what all her friends had. But, knowing that all she needed it for was for homework and blogging, the Lenovo netbook couldn't fail. She can't tell and doesn't know that it is a mere netbook. Convergence is coming, folks.
Excerpt: Lenovo Ideapad S12, fue el primer netbook en montar tecnología ION (a mediados del año pasado), siendo su elevado precio una de las razones por las cuales no se vendió demasiado. Integra un microprocesador de bajo consumo Intel Atom N270 a 1,6 Ghz. que, a pesar de ofrecer una potencia muy reducida, permite realizar de manera correcta tareas cotidianas como ofimática, internet, etc.
