Most of the attention on Lenovo’s new Pine Trail line-up has concentrated on the 10-inch S10-3t convertible netbook. However, Lenovo’s S10-3 is its more traditional update to the S10-2 netbook. The S10-3 is pretty average in terms of specs and has a 10.1-inch (1024 x 600) display. It is powered by a 1.66GHz N450 Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD and comes with Windows 7 Starter.
Laptop Mag has put the Ideapad S10-3 through its paces. They liked its keyboard a lot, calling it the “best keyboard on any netbook” and also were fond of its instant-on operating system. On the negative side, the found the touchpad to be “finicky” with its integrated buttons, whilst battery life was shorted than the competition, although they still managed just shy of 7 hours.
