Laptop Magazine has posted a full review of that Lenovo IdeaPad S10 netbook they unboxed yesterday. The verdict? It’s a decent little laptop for the price (about $449), but there’s not much to set it apart from similarly priced netbooks like the Asus Eee PC 1000H or the MSI Wind.
The IdeaPad S10 appears to have a relatively speedy hard drive. It performed better on HDD tests than most netbooks in its class. And it ships with CyberLink OneKey recovery software, which lets you create a disk image of your system for easy backup and restore jobs.
But it has a smaller, more cramped keyboard than other netbooks with 10 inch displays. And it ships with a 3 cell battery, which provides just over 2 hours and 20 minutes of battery life. You can get twice the battery life with a 6 cell Asus Eee PC 1000H which runs about the same price.
