Lenovo S10-2 Netbook Review

Chris Hardwick and Olivia Munn get you ready to go back to school with this new S10-2 netbook from Lenovo that weighs only 2.2 lbs and boats a 10.1" screen for only $350.

What You Need To Know

  • This is the thinnest and lightest netbook being reviewed this week, but the huge extended battery is a clear design flaw.
  • The keyboard and touch pad is easy to use for the most part.
  • The near full size keyboard may take a little getting used to since the backspace and period buttons are a little off.
  • The touchpad and buttons are small but are user friendly.
  • The multi-touch works well.
  • Overall, the netbook works pretty well with a solid performance. We ran our standard PCMark05 test and the results were a little above average.
  • It can multitask and run flash without problems and the Windows start-up time was fast.
  • It also has a Quick Start Linux OS that features web browsing, photo viewing and other fun features that boots in even less time.


  • $350.00 which is almost worth it.
  • We can't fully recommend it based on the battery and keyboard design.

    Thanks much for reviewing the Lenovo S10-2!!! We're gonna grab 3 of these! Don't forget the VeriFace Face Recognition software that comes standard with it, as well as the One Button restore feature to recover factory settings. Thanks AOTS!!! :-)

    (p.s., I don't work for Lenovo, but for price:features, despite the ungainly look, the IdeaPad S10-2 is a steal!)
