First Look at the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 Netbook

by eWEEK Staff


Lenovo is refreshing its line of IdeaPad netbooks with a new mini-notebook called the IdeaPad S10-2, which offers a bigger keyboard. While Lenovo took some criticism with the keyboard size of its original S10 netbook, the PC vendor has taken time to expand the size of the S10-2's keyboard. The IdeaPad S10-2 keyboard is 90 percent of the size of a typical, full-sized laptop. In addition to a 10.1-inch display, Lenovo looked to slim down the S10-2 to less than an inch thick. Lenovo also equipped the new netbook with software that allows for greater energy efficiency and up to 30 percent more battery life compared to the older S10 mini-notebook. The Lenovo S10-2, which the company plans to release May 12, also offers an array of standard netbook features, including an Intel Atom N270 processor—1.6GHz—and 802.11 b/g wireless technologies. The S10-2 netbook also includes a 160GB hard disk drive. Lenovo, in an effort to make its netbooks more eye pleasing, offers an array of different colors, including white and pink.(Photographs courtesy of Lenovo.)
