Lenovo IdeaPad S10

>> Saturday, February 7, 2009

With Intel's now standard 1.6GHz Atom N270 CPU, specifically designed for low power Netbooks, the Lenovo S10 is not going to match up with Lenovo's normally high powered business systems or deliver the same level of performance you'd get from even an inexpensive Core 2 Duo.

Still, for Web surfing, email, and working on office documents, which is 90 percent of what most people do on their laptops anyway, the S10 performed about as expected, closely matching the Asus Eee PC 901 and MSI Wind in our iTunes performance test.

With impressive battery scores from Lenovo's mainstream laptops, we had high hopes for the S10's battery, even though it's of the smaller 3 cell variety.

Unfortunately, the battery lasted about as long as other 3 cell Netbooks we've tested, such as the MSI Wind, coming in at 2 hours and 13 minutes on our video playback battery drain test. Dell manages to get more than 3 hours out of the Mini 9's 4 cell battery, while Netbooks with 6 cell batteries, including the Asus Eee PC 1000, lasted for more than 5 hours. Lenovo includes an industry standard one year parts and labor mail in warranty with the system. A variety of extension options are available and upgrading to a year of on site service costs an extra $49, while three years of at home service is $159.
