I ordered the white s10 on Lenovo website when they had 15% off in August 08. But only white, black and red were available.
Waited long time (about 1 month) to receive this one. It was light, small but big enough screen for web surfing and other light task windows programs.
The battery life lasts about 3 hours with the "super power save" mode that come with the S10 and it is only 3 cell battery. They could have used 6 cell battery for longer operating hours.
Better looking than HP, ACER, MSI and Eee PC

The 8.9" Acer aspire one is the same size but a little thicker than S10 and costs the same even though aspire one have bigger memory, hard drive and 6 cell battery. The 8.9" screen on aspire one makes it thicker edges next the LCD screen when compares with S10, this is the main reason I don't like aspire one.

Pros:
Stylish, light weight, build-in mic and webcam,
no other junk software installed (very clean),
80GB hard drive.
Bright screen, 10.2" not 8.9" or 7". Great Vaule.
Thin screen edge.
Fast boot up.

Cons:
3 cell battery, hard drive is partitioned to 2 sections.

Update:
I put 1x2 GB Crucial PC2-5300 on Ideapad S10, it showed 2GB in Windows XP, not 2.5 GB.
Only 1 slot available in S10 and so maximum memory is 2GB. This means the on board 512 MB is not used by the system.
Also tried putting 1 GB memory and it showd 1.5 GB total in XP.

I purchased the black S10 from an importer in NY, and it's been upgraded with a 2 gig RAM stick (recognizes a total of 2 gigs for the system) and a 120gb 5400 HDD.

That being said, I'll not spend any time talking about the speed of this little netbook. I've worked on the Acer Aspire One and tooled around on the first generation from Asus as well. I went with the Ideapad for a couple of reasons.

1. The high quality of Lenovos in general. I have not been disappointed. Whereas the first gen Asus were flimsy and many of the others at least feel flimsy (MSI Wind), this one feels to me to be a good sturdy laptop - not much flex, the hinge for the screen feels solid, the keyboard, while not as good as the classic thinkpad, is easy to type on (though small, at 85% of normal size as opposed to 92% for some competitors).

2. The screen size. At 10.2", it's large enough for me to comfortably work on. I've seen some people pining for an 11" netbook, and that would certainly be nice, but what I can tell you is that I'm much more comfortable working on this 10.2" than the 8.9" that I've used.

3. The webcam works well. My fiance lives abroad, and having this little guy for skype has made a big difference for us. The webcam is a feature that doesn't make the S10 stand out against other netbooks, but it was something I was looking for in a cheap laptop.

4. The trackpad is configurable. I love being able to assign different areas of the track pad to different functions. Having the top left and right corners as "back" and "forward" in the browser and the bottom right as "right click" have made this a lot easier.

A few gripes:

1. The keyboard - I've already mentioned it, but it is small, and takes some getting used to.

First off I rated this Netbook a 4 for only one reason. It is slower then the Acer Aspire One. I know because I own both of them. They both have the same 160 Gb of HD and 1 Gig RAM. For what ever the reason the Lenovo is slower I cannot answer that. One thing I can say is the reason I purchased these little netbook's is because of the 3G feature. For $60.00 through AT&T each I can access the internet anywhere which I do. I have a busy life and a busy business schedule and these little netbook's have saved me a lot of time. My hotel stay's always depended on the internet access but not anymore.
Also for what ever reason all the other people who have written a review have paid so much money I can't understand. I was able to get BOTH my Acer and my Lenovo for $00.00. All it required me to do was admit I was going to pay for internet regardless for the next 24 months and that's it. If you know you are going to be paying for internet service for the next few years then go ahead and get one. But if you would rather purchase a laptop with WiFi only then have fun searching for a free Wifi hotspot. I love my Lenovo and I know you would too.
The difference between the Lenovo and the Acer is the Lenovo has a larger screen and a larger keyboard for easier typing. Both have Blue tooth capability built in and both work awesome with a wireless home network and a wireless printer.

Just got my S10 3 days ago and it is exactly what I was looking for in a netbook. Granted 512mb is not enough memory, it is SO easy to upgrade the Lenovo that it is not really an issue. Given the feature set and build quality the slight negatives do NOT outweigh the numerous positives! The 10" screen and express card slot make the S10 standout from the crowd.

Hi All,

I have already reviewed another S10 and wanted to share my thoughts on this one... This is the 2nd one in our household. Only difference between the two is that the first was 160gb hard drive and this is 80gb hard drive:

Quote from past review:

I am not going to go into every little detail about this machine as there are many many wonderful reviews about it. I suggest you read through all of them and this one too. My review simply compliments everything above.

I bought this laptop for one of my younger kids to play some online games.

It is FANTASTIC.

When it first arrived it was a bit on the slow side...slow in terms that the hard drive was blinking non stop...this is due to the 512mb that it ships with.... Simple solution...I bought a 2gb dimm from Amazon and installed it after receiving it in 1 day...overnight. Awesome speed Amazon!!!

XP, to me is dated....Vista is a beast...so I opted to try the Windows 7 beta on this machine after reading many blogs that suggested that 7 was perfect on netbooks. Very True. I downloaded the public beta of 7 and using some google searching created a bootable 4gb usb thumb drive. We turned the Lenovo off, inserted the drive, and it immediately booted to the 7 installation. EASY...... The installer found every driver on the S10 without issue...with the exception of the power management drivers...which can be found easily on the Lenovo website.

7 works spectacularly with the keys on the keyboard, including the brightness controls and volume controls. All perfect!!!!

One great feature, with windows 7 is that once you close the lid on the s10 it puts the machine automatically into hibernation. Once you press the power button, it resumes without flaw...
