Can’t wait for hackers to get their hands on the upcoming Lenovo S10 (and S9) and start posting pictures of the tiny computer’s innards? No problem. Lenovo and the FCC have you covered. Engadget uncovered a ton of S9/S10 related documents on the FCC website, including more than 50 pictures of the computer and it’s internal components. You can check out a slideshow after the jump.
The FCC also has the complete user manual in PDF format. There aren’t a ton of surprises. But there are a few items worth nothing. For example, unlike some netbooks, the S10 and S9 have an access panel on the back. Better yet, Lenovo describes it as a hard drive/RAM access panel, which means it should be relatively easy to upgrade either piece of hardware.
Of course, the manual suggests that you shouldn’t perform a hard drive upgrade yourself, but should instead find a Lenovo authorized service center. But if you know what you’re doing and/or like throwing caution to the wind, it looks like you should be able to upgrade the hard drive yourself without having to rip the entire computer apart.
The computer includes a hidden partition with the files you need to restore your computer to its original factory default state. No rescue CDs are included, which means if you wipe away that partition, you could be out of luck. Hopefully Lenovo will let you request rescue CDs via mail if you do accidentally wipe this partition.
