Lenovo IdeaPad S10e notebook

 

In the UK, Lenovo is known for its corporate ThinkPad range - which it bought the rights to from IBM a couple of years ago. As such, it's easy to forget that the company also produces a range of consumer laptops. The latest to arrive is the IdeaPad S10...

That screen, robust quality, highly portable

Average battery life, keyboard not as good as we hoped

The Lenovo IdeaPad S10e is a good netbook, but not a great one. The screen is much better than average, but there are few other stand-out features. We were impressed by the quality of the chassis, but the keyboard didn’t live up to our expectations....

Lenovo IdeaPad S10e review

 

Lenovo's netbook goes from business to personal

Good performance ; Works well with Ubuntu

Awkward key placement ; Tiny trackpad

A decent all-rounder, but please, Lenovo: swap those Fn and Ctrl keys, and give the trackpad more room!

Lenovo IdeaPad S10e review

 

Like Lenovo's long-established line of ThinkPad laptops, the IdeaPad has a plain but sturdy case, although the lid flexed more than we'd like.

Lenovo IdeaPad S10e review

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad S10e netbook has been designed with the education market in mind. It's slightly different to the IdeaPad S10, with a smaller screen, a bigger battery, and Splashtop.

Despite its reduced size and resolution, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10e is one of the best netbooks on the market. It's very well built, it has an expansion slot and its battery lasts a long time. Its keyboard is hard to get used to, but some of the people we...

Lenovo S10e

 

Like Fujitsu-Simens, Lenovo has a more business-orientated netbook in the Lenovo S10e, a sober-looking affair that majors on build solidity.

Despite some inexcusable shortcomings such as tortuous mouse buttons and a reflective screen, we couldn't help admiring the Lenovo S10e for its overall build quality which inspires confidence as you handle it. It also has a curiously workable keyboard,...

Lenovo IdeaPad S10e - netbook

 

Can Lenovo transfer the quality of its ThinkPad range over to its netbooks? We examine the IdeaPad S10e.

Lenovo's debut on the netbook scene isn't quite what we'd been hoping for.

Lenovo IdeaPad S10e

 

Lenovo finally enters the netbook race with its cute S10e. Sasha Muller finds out if it can match the undeniably lovely Samsung NC10.

The flow of new netbooks may have slowed from a torrent to more of a trickle, but while there aren't many of the major manufacturers who are yet to make the plunge, there are some notable absentees. One name sorely missing from the lineup, at least...
