While there are many different netbooks on the market, one of the models that has been selling quite well and is popular with many enthusiasts is the IdeaPad S10 from Lenovo. The Lenovo IdeaPad S10 can be customized, but is equipped with an Intel Atom N270 processor, a 10.2" anti-glare display, and Broadcom 802.11b/g WiFi. In this latest Phoronix article we are looking at the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 along with providing some Linux-based benchmarks.

In addition to the Intel Atom processor, Broadcom wireless, and 10.2" display, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 has Intel GMA 950 graphics, a 4-in-1 media card reader, and an Express Card slot. The S10 is customizable to ship with either an 80GB or 160GB HDD and 512MB or 1024MB of DDR2 system memory. Our unit had 512MB of memory and an 80GB Hitachi HTS543280L9A300 SATA HDD. To some dismay, by default there is just a 3-cell Lithium-Ion battery included with this Intel netbook. On the software side of the netbook is Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 3, but of course we quickly wiped that in favor of Ubuntu Linux. Due to a recent agreement, however, SplashTop will soon be appearing on some Lenovo IdeaPad S10 netbooks. Our unit also happened to have HyperSpace on there, but that was preloaded by Phoenix Technologies.

The Lenovo IdeaPad S10 was well packaged and everything had arrived at our testing facility in perfect condition. Included with the 10.2" netbook was the US power adapter and the usual paperwork / media. The Lenovo IdeaPad S10 with the 3-cell battery weighs about 1.20 kilograms and measures in at 24.9 x 18.3 x 3.05 cm.
