Lenovo’s IdeaPad S10


Lenovo has finally listed its IdeaPad netbooks, which were introduced earlier this month and have been, ever since, a source of much anticipation. By visiting the company’s website, users will be able to select from up to three differently colored models, all of which feature the same Intel Atom processor and 10-inch LCD display we have been expecting.

The new IdeaPad S10 netbooks are offered in red, black and white colors and have a starting price tag of US$429, for the black model, and US$439 for the other two versions. The basic system configuration will provide users with a netbook equipped with a Windows XP operating system, powered by a single-core Intel Atom processor running at 1.6GHz.

As far as storage goes, users will be able to benefit from up to 80GB on the 5400RPM HDD, while memory has been set at a decent 512MB for the standard configuration. The netbook is powered by a 3-Cell Lithium-Ion battery and weighs as much as 2.64lbs. The 10.2-inch XGA VibrantView TFT display has been featured with an integrated camera, enabling the netbook’s users to fully benefit from a rich Internet experience.

Aside from the already noted difference in chassis color, there is nothing else to set the black model and the other two IdeaPad S10 netbooks apart. Even so, the black version is $10 cheaper than the rest of Lenovo’s newly released similar products. With all that, the more expensive models are still cheaper than ASUS’ own 10-inch Eee PC so, most likely, the following months should bring a fierce and interesting competition between the two.
