Lenovo lanuches Idepad S10 to take on EEE PC & MSI Wind

Posted by SG on Monday, August 4, 2008

Lenovo today announced the introduction of the Ideapad S10, which is a netbook and is in theleague of MSI Wind & Asus EEE PC. It’s designed to complement the main computer and not replace it as it lacks the power to do it. It will be perfect for browsing, listening to music and doing Office related work. It’s just about one inch thick & weighs approx. 2 pounds.

The Ideapad features a 10.2 inch screen which is LED backlit. The LED backlit screen also provides for better battery life. It also has a large keyboard by netbook standards as it’s 85% of notebook size keyboards. The Idepad features Express Card slot, 2 USB slots & a 4-in-1 media card reader. The Express Card & Media Card Reader can be used to enable 3G net surfing & to increase the Storage of the S10 respectively.

The S10 runs Windows XP & uses the Intel Atom Processor to power it.Lenovo offers the IdeaPad S10 netbook in two configurations, with one having 512 MB of memory and an 80 GB hard drive and the second configuration having 1 GB of memory and a 160 GB hard drive. Both configurations should still be perfectly capable of accommodating a variety of data, from a user’s digital music library to a student’s homework assignments and more. Lenovo engineered the netbook to reduce the heat emitted on key contact areas such as the bottom of the PC, the palm rests and the keyboard. Additionally, Lenovo’s “OneKey Rescue System” helps users recover data at the touch of a button should a system error or virus occur.
