The IdeaPad S netbooks are available in a few different colors like red, pink, black, white, and blue. Our S10 had the black finish, which was nice and accompanied by the Lenovo logo in the corner of the netbook. The Lenovo IdeaPad S10 feels fairly durable -- even though it's mostly composed of plastic -- and comparable to the other 10" netbooks we have previously tested.

While this is a 10.2" netbook, the size of the keys on its keyboard is quite smaller. The keys on the 10.2" Samsung NC10 netbook are much larger and laid out more effectively than what can be found with the S10. Permitting your fingers aren't too big, you still should be able to easily type on this keyboard once getting used to the smaller size, much smaller right shift key, and other changes. Below the keyboard is the touchpad, which is appropriately sized for this netbook. Above the 1024 x 600 display on the S10 is the integrated web camera.

On the left side of the netbook is the DC power connector, VGA output, 3-in-1 media card reader, and one USB 2.0 port. There is also a ventilation slot on this side of the netbook.

On the right hand side of the IdeaPad S10 is the Express Card slot, headphone and microphone jacks, one USB 2.0 port, one 10/100 Ethernet, and a Kensingston security lock slot.

The RAM and disk drive can be easily swapped out by just removing a panel secured by a few screws.
