s10-2 unboxed

Lenovo has been shipping its second generation netbook for a few weeks now, but ranns at the Netbooks Philippines Forums has posted some of the first unboxing photos I’ve seen. The netbook comes with a decent looking slip cover and all the usual accessories including a user manual, warranty card, and power cord. I have to say, I’m not a big fan of the way the extended battery sticks out of the back of the netbook like a tumor. But it’s probably a small price to pay for doubling your laptop’s battery life.

As expected, the S10-2 appears to have a glossy display which looks a bit like a mirror when the backlight is off. The lid is also rather shiny,but the keyboard and palm rest are thankfully less shiny and less prone to collecting fingerprints.

You can find more photos, including a shot of the IdeaPad S10-2 hanging out with an HP Mini 1000 over that the Netbooks Philippines Forums.

thanks Chie!

  1. Even if you disregard the ungainly battery protrusion, I think the design change from S10 to S10-2 went from sublime to ridiculous.

    Maybe they thought the S10 was unsuccessful because it wasn’t shiny and knife-edged like the other netbooks. Actually it was the keyboard and other problems. The case design was the best thing it had going for it.

    If I were the one who designed the original S10, I’d be biting nails now.

  2. Seeing the protruding 6-cell always peeves me. Why is it that Samsung and Asus can build netbooks with good battery life by default, but if you want good battery life from HP, Dell, some Acers, and Lenovo you have to add a large, cancerous tumor to the case of your tiny netbook.

    It just stinks design-wise, makes it harder to pack into a messenger bag, ruins the fitment of protective sleeves, and makes a tiny netbook as thick as an old laptop from 1993. Really dumb.
