Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3 is one of the slickest looking 10 inch netbooks I’ve seen in a while. The folks at Lenovo sent me one to review this week, and I’ve posted the unboxing video below.

The lid features a fingerprint-resistant, texture pattern. The demo model Lenovo sent me is red, and while I don’t usually favor red laptops, it’s quite nice looking. It’s subdued enough to make the laptop look a little flashy without looking silly.

The keyboard has an isolation-style layout, with flat keys and a little space between each key. I’m still not a fan of Lenovo’s insistence on putting the Fn key on the far left side of the keyboard where most PC makers place a Ctrl key. But I’m starting to get used to it and so I grumble a little less each time I unbox a Lenovo laptop.

The palm rest has a brushed metal look and feel, which carries over to the touchpad. I’m fairly certain it’s actually made of plastic, but the aesthetic is quite nice.

One interesting change from previous Lenovo laptops is the placement of the power button on the screen bezel instead of above the keyboard. When you add the fact that Lenovo has done away with individual touchpad buttons, this netbook is a little slimmer and lighter than previous models.

I’ll have more thoughts on the S10-3 after I’ve had time to test it. For now, you can check out the unboxing video after the break.

  1. How do you apply to be a product reviewer? Do companies just send you new products as they prepare to release them, or do you need to request the specific product to get it sent to you?
