While I’m still waiting patiently for the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 I ordered yesterday to arrive, Joanna Stern at Laptop Magazine got to play with one for about 45 minutes at the IDF conference in San Francisco yesterday. (I’m pretty sure those hands in the picture belong to the Lenovo rep and not Joanna).

Her first impressions? The nearly full-sized keyboard is awesome, despite the awkward placement of the page up/down buttons at the top. The trackpad looks small, but is easy to use and supports vertical scrolling, unlike the new MSI Wind touchpad. And performance seems to be pretty decent despite the fact that the stock S10 will ship with just 512MB of RAM. The PC boots Windows XP in about 45 seconds.

I’d still be happier if Lenovo offered the option of RAM and battery upgrades during checkout. But it should be pretty easy to upgrade the RAM yourself, and I suspect we’ll see official and/or third party extended batteries popping up in no time.
