Intel's Atom processor really made it easy for many manufacturers to make an inexpensive laptop that performs well, now netbook's are everywhere. They appeal to many consumers because they are small, inexpensive, and for normal computer users they are good for browsing the internet and other similar tasks. Today we will be looking at the IdeaPad S10-2 from Lenovo. We looked at the original S10 back in November, the S10-2 is very much the same as hardware goes, but Lenovo did a lot to make this version of the S10 better. Let's take a look...
