Lenovo outs IdeaPad S10-3

Written by Fudzilla staff

Convertible tablet version coming too


In addition
to the price Skylight smartbook, Lenovo has announced a couple of new IdeaPad netbooks based on Intel's new Pinetrail platform.

The S10-3 features a classic netbook layout, with a 10.1-inch screen and a cute chicklet keyboard, but it's a nice improvement on the old S10-2, as it offers 2GB of memory and 320GB of storage. It will feature Intel's 1.83GHz Atom N470 and GMA 3150, but we guess it will also be available with the slightly cheaper N450 processor. Lenovo seems to have done a Dell on the trackpad and integrated the buttons under the touch sensitive surface. This solution takes some getting used to, but we'd take it over an undersized trackpad any day.

The S10-3t is a convertible tablet version and apparently it's the world's first convertible netbook with a capacitative multitouch touchscreen. Judging by the pictures, the S10-3t has a somewhat smaller footprint than the regular S10-3 and it features a standard keyboard. It has a somewhat smaller trackpad, too, but that really isn't much of a drawback as it's got a touchscreen.

Both netbooks feature WiFi, Bluetooth, optional WWAN, 4- or 8-cell batteries and ship with three flavours of Windows 7: Starter, Home Basic or Premium.

Prices will start at $350 for the cheapest S10-3, while the convertible S10-3t will sell for $500 or more.
