Need a portable netbook? You can consider Lenovo Ideapad S10 10.2-Inch Netbook. It is small, but not to small. 10.2 inch is just the right size for a netbook, smaller than this size, it is a night mare and bigger than this, it will be too much, to heavy, to big, and just to much just to type office document or browse the internet, and also maybe to expensive. Lenovo gives a great size for their new netbook. You can easily carry it anywhere and use it almost anywhere.
This portable laptop although it is small, however is full of amazing features. Intel Atom N270 with 1.6 GHz clock speed horses this netbook. The Atom processor uses only 2.5 watt of power, compare to 35 watt of the Intel Core 2 Duo, conserving more power and hence provide longer battery life span. The 3-cell battery is a bit drawback compare to the other competitor which already uses 6-cell battery, however you can always upgrade it to provide more battery life. For the data storage, this netbook comes with a 160 GB of Hard drive. This is considerably big for a small machine like this. This is a good point since Hard Drive price is constantly decreasing.
To support the processor, Lenovo Ideapad S10 10.2-Inch Netbook comes with a 1 GB of RAM. This size is more than enough for average daily application, such as: Office application, browsing the Internet, listening to music, watching movies and playing some light games. However, if you are a heavy user, such as doing some video editing, graphic designing or playing heavy games than you should consider to upgrade the RAM. Luckily, this machine is easily upgraded. Unscrew several bolts on the bottom of the machine, and you can spot the Hard Drive and RAM slot, then add the additional RAM and that’s it. Your RAM is upgraded. It’s deadly easy.
The only drawback of this machine is the lack of DVD. For those who like to watch movies on their journey, you need to consider to buy an external DVD drive, which I think will just create another trouble, or you can save the movies in the enormous space of the Hard Drive. You can create a DVD or CD image of your favorite movie using MagicDisc, my favorite emulator drive, from another computer. Please Googling to find where to download it. It’s a free software and very light.
