Finally following in the footsteps of many other PC makers, Lenovo has unveiled its entry into the low-cost subnotebook race: the Ideapad S10. Gizmodo has the skinny on the system's specs, plus a photo gallery to go with it.
The Ideapad S10 is coming out in September starting at $399. According to Gizmodo, Lenovo will outfit the netbook with a LED-backlit 10" 1024x600 display, an Intel Atom processor, 512MB of memory, an 80GB mechanical hard drive, 802.11g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, an ExpressCard slot, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and a 4-in-1 card reader. Users will be able to opt for a $450 variant with 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive. Battery choices will include three- and six-cell batteries with three- and six-hour life ratings, respectively.
Physically, the Ideapad S10 doesn't look too different from Asus' Eee PCs. The keyboard, track pad, and hinge seem similar, but the Lenovo system does come with eye-catching red and black outside bezels. Strangely, the Lenovo's keyboard is only 85% of full size, which may feel a little cramped on a 10" system. (For reference, HP's 2133 Mini-Note pairs a 92%-of-full-size keyboard with an 8.9" screen.) That's a compromise some folks may be willing to make considering the S10's price tag, though.
