Lenovo Ideapad S10

The Thinkpad gets a downsize

One always wonders when the big boys will decide to get in on the new game, with the launch of the EEE PC a distant memory and more competitors are eyeing the market we were asking when the top players will get in on the action.

We can officially stop questioning and look forward to the arrival of the Lenovo Ideapad S10. Lenovo is not a new kid on the block when it comes to laptops, having been under the IBM umbrella until a few years ago, it has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to laptops.

The Ideapad S10 is aimed at two competitors, namely the EEE PC 10 series and the MSI Wind. It does this by offering a choice of either a 3-cell battery like the Wind, or a 6-cell battery like the EEE PC 10. The hard drive choice is great, with either a 80GB or 160GB you won’t find space an issue.

Throw in the Intel Atom 1.6GHz, up to 2GB RAM, an Intel GMA 950 GPU, Ethernet port, ExpressCard WWAN slot, webcam, and a 4-in-1 card reader, all nicely bundled with a 10 inch screen.

Expect to see a 9 inch version appear as well.
