Subnotebooks or netbooks are becoming extremely popular. It seems like everyone is coming out with some type of netbook. They are very appealing to consumers because most people use their laptops for word processing and surfing the web and the low prices of these laptops make them an easy buy. Also most netbooks are compact and small, which makes them easy to travel with. Today we will be looking at Lenovo’s IdeaPad S10, which is a 10.2-inch netbook that features an Intel Atom processor and 1GB of memory. Let’s see if this is the netbook for you!

The IdeaPad S10 came to us via FedEx. It comes in its retail packaging. The packaging really does not tell you that there is a S10 inside. On the side there is a sticker that has the specs of the system.
Opening the box up everything inside is nicely organized and the laptop is protected with Styrofoam. There really is not much inside; you get the S10 laptop, 3 cell battery, AC adapter, power cord, and the user’s guide.
