Lenovo IdeaPad S10e

 

Can an instant-on Linux OS give the IdeaPad S10e an edge over other netbooks?

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 review

 

Our sample Lenovo S10e was finished in matt black and has a rigidity to its construction rarely seen elsewhere. Take the keyboard, for example - almost zero flex and a good honest keyboard that stands out as one of the better micro keyboards we've seen.

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

 

The S10e is Lenovo\'s long awaited foray into the netbook market.

Good build quality, nice screen

Shift key too small, Quick Start did not perform that well.

Lenovo IdeaPad S10e netbook

 

Not a bad netbook, but it doesn't stand out from the crowd.

The Lenovo S10e is a great netbook. The Quick Start feature is lacking and the battery life could be better. At £249, it's competitively priced and worthy of consideration. If you need extra battery life, consider the similarly specced Samsung NC10,...

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.

Review: Lenovo IdeaPad S10e

 

Lenovo's netbook shows more polish than many of its rivals

The IdeaPad S10e stands out from the netbook crowd thanks to its build quality, and some useful extras such as Quick Start and Rescue and Recovery to help users get their system up and running again if problems should occur.

Lenovo - IdeaPad S10e

 

After Dell finally launched its netbook, the Mini 9, there was still one major manufacturer's netbook that some people were waiting to get their hands on: the one promised from Lenovo. Well, the wait is over, ...

The IdeaPad S10e shows that Lenovo was watching what all its major competitors were up to before entering the netbook fray. The addition of an ExpressCard slot makes it a more flexible solution than many of its competitors, but if it had a 6-cell...
