Looking for a Lenovo IdeaPad S10 with a high capacity battery? Then I certainly hope you live in Germany. Because the computer maker is shipping the IdeaPad S10 with a 6 cell battery in that country, while customers in the US and other locations have to settle for a 3 cell battery which provides 2-3 hours of battery life. Eee PC News reports that the netbook also has a starting price of 329 Euros, making it the cheapest netbook with a 10.2 inch screen and 6 cell battery in Germany.
The 6 cell battery has to be one of the ugliest I’ve seen so far, and it looks more like a weird growth on the back of the compute than an organic part of the machine when it’s plugged in. But hey, it should double your battery life, right?
In related news, Lenovo has begun selling “large capacity” versions of the IdeaPad S10 in the US. For an extra $50 over the price of the base model, these units come with 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive, both of which are twice what you get on the “general computing” models.
