Lengda X10S 10-inch netbook gets video hands-on

Lengda X10SLengda announced another netbook at Computex that followed on from the 10.2” stainless steel Lengda X10K and 11.1” CULV-based M11A netbook that we’ve already seen. The Lengda X10S is a cheaper model than the above two, but certainly has some interesting features of its own.

It’s quite an attractive, slender netbook with a 10.2” (1024 x 600) matte display and comes with a faux-chrome effect on the side and a chiclet keyboard. The specs don’t differ too much from your usual netbook, you’ll find a 1.6GHz N270 Atom CPU, 1GB RAM and a 160GB HDD under the hood. You’ll also find three USB ports, a couple of audio jacks, VGA, Ethernet and even a switch to turn wireless on and off.

It is a light netbook at 1.15kg but it’s not known what type of battery that comes with it. Whilst the X10S comes with a glossy lid finish, you are able to swap lid covers if you don’t fancy that particular colour! Netbooknews found that the chiclet keyboard was comfortable to type on, despite the layout of keys feeling somewhat small. There was no bending on the keyboard and the touchpad was quite large for a 10-inch netbook. Check out the hands-on video after the break. Read more

Video: Lengda intros X10K stainless netbook & 11.1” CULV model

Lengda X10KLengda is not a manufacturer I have come across before, however they introduced a couple of interesting netbooks at Computex this week. This includes the 10.2-inch stainless steel Lengda X10K and the 11.1-inch CULV-based M11A netbook.

The X10K is the first ever stainless steel netbook (which weighs 1.37kg), but for those of you worrying about the extra weight this may add, Lengda is also planning an aluminium version soon. Additional options include a pull-out 3G and TV-Tuner.

The Lengda M11A has an 11.1-inch screen, the first netbook that I’ve seen with that sized display. It is powered by a Celeron ULV processor and weighs just 1.3kg with a 4-cell Lithium Polymer battery. There are three USB 2.0 ports, VGA output and memory card reader, but there’s also an integrated TV tuner. There is no detail on technical specs, pricing or availability but we’ll be keeping a close eye for further news. Check out a couple of hands-on videos after the break courtesy of NetbookNews.
