GBM Shortcut: Lenovo S10-2 Netbook

dsc_00111Good news – Lenovo’s improved S10-2 Netbook is shipping and Lenovo was kind enough to send me a production ready machine to play with for a few months. Xavier gave us a really quick hands on when the S10-2 was announced, but this will be our first time to get extended play time with it. So, look for some posts over the next few months on my overall impressions on the S10-2. Until then, here are some initial impressions, a GBM Shortcut, and a few photos to tide you over.

My initial impressions are pretty positive so far – thin, light, and a much better keyboard experience over the S10. In addition, I’ve found Lenovo’s N270 Atom-based S10-2 to be quite snappy. It boots up with just 42 processes and only 400 mb out of 1 gb RAM utilized. The included 6 cell battery is awesome, showing approximately 7 hours of battery life.

The S10-2 retails for $439, but is currently on sale for $349.

    I wonder why they’re still producing netbooks with the N270 instead of the N280. Having seen the difference it makes with 720p video you’d think the transition would have been made by now…
