Lenovo IdeaPad S10

Aside from the tests that focused on the system memory or HDD/SSD, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 performed well and was competitive with the Samsung NC10. If you are interested in more memory for the S10 that can be easily upgraded to 1GB through Lenovo or the S10's secondary DIMM slot is easily accessible by removing a few screws at the bottom of the unit. Lenovo does not offer a solid-state drive option for the IdeaPad S10, but the customer too can easily upgrade that.

A few of the shortcomings, however, with this netbook is the 3-cell Lithium-Ion battery (that lasted not nearly as long as the 6-cell Samsung NC10 battery) and a very cramped keyboard for being a 10.2" netbook. Besides these flaws, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 is a nice Intel-powered netbook. One nice trait about the IdeaPad S10 is the Express Card slot, which cannot be found in all netbooks.
