Lenovo Ideapad S10-3s reviewed – inferior to the S10-3

May 4, 2010 at 10:04 am

Lenovo Ideapad S10-3sThe Lenovo Ideapad S10-3s is similar to the current Ideapad S10-3 netbook. It differs by being slimmer and offers an optional high-resolution (1280 x 720) display. Peter from Netbooked has just finished reviewing the S10-3s and is well placed to pass judgement having already reviewed both the S10-3 and S10-3t convertible netbook.

He found that the netbook had good features including an excellent keyboard, bright display and good quality audio. However, in most other ways it was inferior to the S10-3 netbook. This included a cramped trackpad, no performance benefits from the 1.83GHz N470 Atom processor, the tendency to get hot and noisy and less battery life than the S10-3. The model tested was running at a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, Peter felt the models with the higher resolution display offer the one redeeming feature. Click here for the full review.

    I just got both the s10-3 in red and also the s10-3s in white both are well made one cost me 339.99 and had more ram amd so on the other one cost over 500.00 dollars there is not much between the 2 of them. I will have one that I will always bring with me. what one do you think cost the most? The S10-3s and in size they are both the same and they are nice looking the s10-3s is more round. I don’t belive I can tell where I brought them but it was not from the same place and I wait a good four weeks for each of them but it’s worth the wait.

    Steven, please tell us about the keyboard.
    Is it the same one found on the S3-10?
    (World’s best netbook keyboard, ever!)

    I have to say there is no difference between them except what you already describe in your article. So as a buyer point of view buy one of them. If you are not a Lenovo user then buy one it will never let you down
