Lenovo this morning officially started selling its first netbook, the IdeaPad S10. The ultra-portable system will compete with the latest ASUS Eee PC and MSI Wind models, offering a 10-inch LED backlit LCD screen and Intel's 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor. Two configurations of the 2.4 pound S10 will be available initially, with 512MB RAM and 80GB HDD, and with 1GB RAM and 160GB of HDD space. Lenovo will sell the first one for $399 while the beefed-up version will sell for $449.99. Papers also indicate that both models will support 2GB of RAM, so upgrading the onboard memory won't be a problem. From the OS point of view, first S10 mini-laptops will be offered with Microsoft Windows XP preinstalled, but later on Lenovo will start offering Linpus Linux preloaded models too. View the full Lenovo S10 specs below the Read full story marker.

Hardocp did a test with atom and c7 and the c7 walked all over the atom. Whats going on in the background that has Lenovo (Chinese) using a slower then molasses Intel (American)chip. Maybe part of the deal to buy IBM's Laptop division was Lenovo had to use American cpu's for a few years? Or it really is tech related.
How many usb plugs I need at least 2, one for flash and one for amouse.

HECK YEAH! This thing is making me want one instead of the MSI Wind, which was a lot better looking than an EEE!

80GB and 160GB hard drives? I thought one of the points of a "netbook" was eliminating the need for a huge storage drive by utilizing online storage. :p

But anyway, if that $399 model has upgradable memory, it'll be a pretty decent deal. If they cripple it like the cheaper eeepc, forget about it.

Considering they were China based until 2006 (after buying the IBM PC division in 2005) I would say "always" is a rather strange statement. As for the IBM brand, they have been solid products yes, far from cheap though.

Last Christmas I got 5 X61 tablet notebooks for $2k each. They are all completely upgraded with wireless n, the fastest cpus possible, 2gb ram, Vista Ultimate, bluetooth, 80gb 7200 rpm drives, etc. I also got 3 years of accidental damage coverage with onsite same-day service! Of course I got a 49% discount on the total price but if you time it right and you get all of the coupons, it isn't hard to get such a deal.

Finally, the laptops are far better quality than similar Fujitsus, Hp's, Dells, etc. Who else has laptops with internal metal frames and I like the drainage holes in the keyboards.

Funny, because the Extremetech review shows the exact opposite.

http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,2845,2326852,00.asp

And taking into account the larger power draw of the Nano, and the effect it will have on battery life on these netbooks, I'd say the Atom is still the better choice. It's not like these are gaming rigs, or machines that are gonna be used for heavy encoding, or things of that nature, where every little bit of performance counts. These are for surfing the net, watching DVDs, or typing up a little something in a word processor. Both cpus will do just fine in those tasks, so emphasis has to be put on which of those can do those tasks for longer.

Its like an EEE crossed with a Macbook, made by one of the best laptop manufacturers around!!
When I get a job, this will be my first laptop. It looks awesome, has plenty of storage, and the Atom is enough for a vLite'd Vista to run smoothly on!
I want. :D
