Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t Netbook Review »

Having a hard time deciding between a netbook and a tablet? Chris Hardwick and Kevin Pereira hope to make things easier for you with their review of the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t, a Windows 7 laptop with 250 gig hard drive that turns into a multi-touch tablet with a 10" LED display, all for $475.

What You Need To Know

  • As netbooks go, the Lenovo design is pretty average.
  • It's just over an inch thick and weighs under 3 pounds.
  • The 10.1" screen converts into a touch tablet but is obviously not as thin or light as an iPad.
  • It feels heavier and thicker than it should.
  • The netbook has a lot of different aspects to its user interface, like a smaller keyboard, touch pad and the touch screen.
  • They all work okay.
  • The keyboard and touchpad are not cramped and work great. It's nice to jump on a netbook and not worry about your fingers.
  • The touch screen isn't that responsive. It's more of a "poke and tap" experience over a fluid motion like the iPad.
  • This means you might have to tap something multiple times to get it to work.
  • The virtual keyboard is also awkward to use and not very useful.
  • Even though it's capacitive, it's just not the experience you want.
  • At least the Lenovo included an upgraded Intel Atom processor and more RAM, so it did better performance wise.
  • Boot up time was average; it took about 65 seconds from powering on to launching Internet Explorer.
  • Our normal PC Mark Vantage test didn't score very well, which could be due to Windows 7 and all of the pre-installed software slowing it down.
  • Overall, it gets the job done but not very efficiently.


  • The IdeaPad starts at $475 which isn't too bad for a hybrid tablet.
