IdeaPad S10 Lenovo mini-notebook


Two configurations of the 9.8 x 7.2 x .8-1.08-inch and 2.4-pound IdeaPad S10 will be available in the U.S. Priced at $399, one will have 512MB of RAM and an 80GB hard drive. The other marked at $449.99 will have 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive.

The IdeaPad S10 will come in white, black, and a glossy ruby red  with a 9-inch screen,powered by 1.6GHz Atom chipsets. Windows XP will be preloaded initially. The display is 1024 x 600 and LED backlit, and the touchpad does multi-touch.The netbook includes Bluetooth connectivity, 802.11b/g , and an ExpressCard for popping in a mobile broadband card. It also sports a LAN connection and VGA-out. It has a 1.3-megapixel webcam, two USB ports, mic and headphone jacks, and a 4-in-1 card reader. I am hesitant about only 2 USB ports.

As for battery life, Lenovo is promising that the system will be available with a 3-cell battery, capable of 3 hours, and 6-cell, capable of lasting 6 hours.

The S10 hits China on September 5th, and will land in the States in early October. A 9-inch version is also in the works for other countries.
