Lenovo S10 netbook E.U. pricing is out

by on27 October 2008


Starting at €329, available in two weeks

Lenovo's Ideapad S10
netbook has been listed with several European retailers in a variety of flavors.

The cheapest SKU ships with a 4GB SSD, 512MB and Linux. It ends up priced at €329, making it the cheapest 10-inch netbook on the market.

However, we don't think a 4GB SSD will impress most consumers, and we would recommend the HDD version with 160GB of storage. It will be available with either Linux or XP. The Linux version will ship with 1536MB of memory, while the XP S10 will pack 1GB, thanks to Microsoft's XP licensing rules for netbooks.

Both offer great value for the money; the Linux version is priced at €379 and the XP-flavored one will set you back €399. Considering the S10 ships with a 6-cell battery, it ends up a bit cheaper than the Wind or Eee 1000H. At 1.25kg it's also a bit lighter than the MSI and Asus with a 6-cell battery, which weigh 1.33 and 1.45kg respectively.

Retailers expect to have the S10 in stock in two weeks and it will be available in black, white and red.
