The IdeaPad S10-3t is the first 10 inch convertible tablet style netbook from Lenovo. The Wall Street Journal reviewed the netbook recently, but you could kind of tell that the reviewer hadn’t spent a lot of time using netbooks. Now Engadget’s Joanna Stern has given the S10-3t a go, and there are few people that have as much time playing with netbooks as she has.
So what’s her verdict?
Joanna says the netbook is slim and light for a convertible tablet, but she wasn’t that impressed with the keyboard or touchpad (with integrated buttons). She says the capacitive multitouch screen was reasonably responsive with Windows 7 Home Premium. But the viewing angles weren’t all that great.
The demo unit Joanna tested had a shiny new 1.83GHz Intel Atom N470 processor. But you’d never know it from most of the benchmarks Joanna run.It doesn’t look like the S10-3t is substantially slower than other Pine Trail netbooks. But it’s not really any faster either.
