3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Overall it's a nice netbook. With 1GB of memory it's a bit slow. I would recommend buying the extra memory.

Cons: The netbook is very particular about the type of memory you can use to upgrade. Lenovo gave me two options that would work with the netbook. The average price was $125.00 for 1GB.

5 out of 5 eggsLenovo delivers.

Pros: Best keyboard on the market, as others have said. Good battery life, very sturdy build. Overall very aesthetically pleasing; I like the glossy black lid, it actually doesn't show fingerprints that much o_o;

Processing speed is above average for a netbook. Lenovo's veriface stuff is pretty fun to use.

Basically, if you just want a small, convenient laptop to type on / surf the web with, this guy is for you.

Cons: Windows 7 Starter is seriously horrible. The bottom heats up pretty quickly, but it's not noticeable if you're working at a desk / table. I wish Lenovo / Newegg offered options to have Windows XP pre-installed or a 2GB RAM option.

Embedded Flash programs don't work too well (on Chrome at least), though this is to be expected. I also didn't find much use for Lenovo's pre-installed programs, but they could be useful for some.

Other Thoughts: After a few days of Windows 7 Starter, I went and installed Ubuntu 10.10 (Netbook Edition) -- works great! Using powertop, I can get a battery life of 8 hours.

Side note: if you're getting Ubuntu 10.10, there is a kernel bug because of some intel hardware - there's a workaround though, just google it.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic keyboard and screen

Pros: As expected, the keyboard on this netbook is exceptional, especially compared to the quality of similar products. The screen is bright and vibrant, the battery life is good, and the touchpad, while not ideal, can be customized through settings to be reasonable.

Cons: Be aware that the model bought here has a glossy black lid, not the "checkerboard" matte one that is shown in most photos of this model. I would have preferred the matte, but given that that's my only complaint its an excellent little machine.

Other Thoughts: With netbooks these days, the internal configuration is identical between different models. What really makes the difference, then, is the design. As someone who types alot, the keyboard is a critical factor of that design, and this netbook does not dissapoint in that regard. Lenovo wisely cribbed their own design of the Thinkpad Edge here, coming out with an island style keyboard that really is a pleasure to write on. I hit my maximum wpm right away and comfortably - the ultimate pro in my books. In terms of performance, all is as expected - it is fine for light web surfing, word processing and SD flash video watching, and can even handle a few older games. The screen is bright, and appears more vibrant than most I've seen, which is a nice little bonus. Overall, a great little portable companion.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Choice

Pros: It's nice to see that Lenovo has kept the quality associated with IBM. Years ago I would not have hesitated to purchase an IBM product such as this, but since Lenovo bought the line out I have stayed away. I see now my fear was unwarranted. The keyboard, as others have pointed out, is extremely nice, perhaps the finest I have seen on a netbook of this size. The screen is pixel perfect, in fact I had to tone down the brightness a bit, a plus for battery life. As another reviewer pointed out some of the models have the gloss finish, as I have gotten one as well. Yes, it's a fingerprint magnet, but the high gloss finish is very nice in my opinion. I did fire the unit up with Windows 7 Starter and as expected it was very, very sluggish. My intent all along was to wipe 7 and install XP any way. After installing XP SP3 I noticed a huge increase in performance. All of the XP drivers are readily available on Lenovo's site. If you are thinking of switching to XP it's very easy to do.

Cons: The only thing I noticed that could have been designed better is the placement of the DC power input. It sits right between the VGA port and a USB port. It could get a bit awkward and in the way if you are using both the USB port and the VGA port at the same time. The 160GB hard drive is limited to about 106GB due to the partitioning needed to store the restore files for a fresh install in case you would need to. The only way you can claim the entire 160GB of hard drive space is to wipe the hard drive and either install Windows 7 Starter fresh (but you don't get Windows media included) or install Windows XP (which I highly recommend). I think it's nonsense that Windows media (CD/DVD) is not shipped with systems and companies are opting instead to create a restore partition on the hard drive to hold the media. If your hard drive has a catastrophic failure, or a virus wipes your boot record, you're out of luck. I would gladly pay a few extra dollars for the media in CD/DVD format.

Other Thoughts: Here is the order I installed the drivers after installing Windows XP fresh onto a single 160GB partition: Chipset, Video, Audio, NIC (Ethernet), Wireless (802.11n), Card Reader, Bluetooth. Everything went very smooth installing in that order. During a few of the driver installs it seemed like the "found new hardware" windows would hang, but be patient, they will eventually disappear and the driver installations will take care of them. I still have an "unknown device" lingering in Device Manager, but I'm assuming that has something to do with the SIM card slot. I don't plan to install a SIM card for 3G service, so I'll investigate this later, if ever. I do have a driver for it though that Lenovo provided on their site. After the driver installs I performed the usual 3 or 4 Windows Updates, tweaked the system for maximum performance and ended up with a machine that Task Manager reports is using only 150MB of RAM at startup. I'm very happy overall with the performance so far!

3 out of 5 eggsUpgrading Ram Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3(0647-2AU)

Pros: Nice netbook and decent battery life. Good keyboard but terrible touch pad. I would have preferred the matte finish since the glossy shows all the fingerprints.

Cons: Been pretty sluggish with Windows 7 starter.

Other Thoughts: If anyone have upgraded their ram, can you report me if there is a noticeable difference in speed and which model and brand you used. There have been reports of incompatible ram even with the same specs. I'm thinking of installing Win XP Pro and additional ram.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Quality for a Netbook!

Pros: Probably the finest keyboard I've encountered on a netbook!

Screen is flawless and seems large for a 10" model.

BATTERY IS GREAT! Wow! If you can live with the screen a few notches from "darkest," this book will last around 6 hours/5 if you're using wireless.


Track Pad has a ridge to allow you to feel where the "mouse buttons" end, and the scrolling pad begins. I like the feel of this Track Pad!

Fit and finish of this product are, bar-none, the finest I've ever seen on a sub-300-dollar computer. It has the feel of a $400+ dollar netbook, but my hunch is, Lenovo lowered the cost to compete with the new netbook deals that seem to be popping-up everywhere.

They MUST be losing money on this computer, just to gain market share, in my opinion, as it seems to be built like a tiny tank in comparison to even my Mini 10V Dell, which had a decent feel to it. It's TONS nicer than the Asus my cubicle mate at work owns! (He paid $399 for his Asus over a year ago - sucka! lol.)

Cons: Power button is on the lid, to the left of the screen, right where a person is inclined to grab the lid when moving the computer around. I had to disable the "off" feature of this button in two places in the Control Panel to "do nothing" when I touch it. It needs to be moved on future models.

Win7 Basic is CRIPPLED, and I think Lenovo would have been better-off offering this book with XP and an extra gig of RAM, instead of Basic, which I've already replaced on mine with XP.

Web Cam is hard to use unless you register the "Face Identification" program. I'm not too terribly paranoid, but I prefer my appliances NOT store a facial scan of me or the family, thanks. Trying to use the webcam without the facial ID program fully set-up so far proves impossible. I'll need to scour the web for a fix to this, as I'm certain others have experienced this annoying quirk.

Other Thoughts: I'd buy this product again, judging from the first month of ownership! I'm a picky guy, and usually find a lot wrong with products. I have VERY little bad to say about the S10-3! It's a total keeper.

5 out of 5 eggsOverall Great

Pros: keyboard, battery life, screen, aesthetics

Cons: windows 7 starter, touch-pad, placement of buttons

Other Thoughts: Keyboard is great, roomy, very little noise. Windows 7 starter really limit it from being a very personal computer. The touch-pad is a bit fidgety, goes where you don't want it to, the scroll is also fidgety. The placement of some buttons is confusing, the power button on the bezel of the screen, which has become the cause of many accidental shut downs, and the ctrl button is in the wrong place. But other than that it's great, just takes some getting used to.

5 out of 5 eggsOverall Good Netbook

Pros: Lightweight, Keyboard, Sound, Many Features.

Cons: Mouse. The left and right button take a bit to get use to - I use an external mouse when at a desk. The scroll feature does not work well either, I will use the up and down keys for surfing the web in bed.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am extremely happy. Lenovo uses quality products to build their pc's and it shows. The specs might be similar to other netbooks, but I think this Lenovo will outlast them.
Need to add a gig of memory and ditch windows 7 starter. I installed xp pro, thinking about linux. It runs better on xp, but I bet it can run better with linux.

4 out of 5 eggsBest Keyboard Around

Pros: Keyboard - Best on any 10" netbook. Excellent travel distance, size, and texture. I tried the Toshiba mini nb305 at a store (another keyboard that many reviews have labeled as "good"); it couldn't hold a candle to the s10-3's keyboard.

Display - Relatively bright. The image seems unusually vibrant. Others have voiced similar thoughts. Blacks seem a bit lacking however. Screen is usable even at the lowest brightness setting

Cons: When I was looking at photos of the s10-3, I only saw the textured semi-matte lid. Be aware however that there are s10-3's with a completely glossy lid. I got one by accident, but didn't feel like going through the hassle to return it.

Battery life is a real bummer on this netbook. Depending on OS and operating conditions I'm getting from 4 to 6 hours. I recommend upgrading to 2 gigs of ddr3 or an SSD since it will help improve battery life a bit. If battery life is very important to you, I would personally recommend the HP Mini 5102. It's the only netbook with both excellent battery life and a good keyboard.

Fan is audible at times.

Other Thoughts: Touchpad - Some hate it, some love it. I will say that the hardware buttons are lacking. However, I just use taps to navigate around so its not an issue. Size is a bit small, but as long as you increase the mouse sensitivity, the size is adequate. Multitouch is somewhat finicky; I stick to the arrow keys and page up/down for scrolling.

The small touch pad also allows this laptop to have a much shallower depth than many other netbooks, compare dimensions.

Everything works out of the box in ubuntu except for the brightness controls. There is a command that will change the brightness and it can be made into a clickable script however.

Despite how poor a processor the atom is, things feel snappy to me, even with 1 GB of ram.

Laptop feels sturdy to me. I am satisfied with my purchase, however, if I could choose again I would probably go with the HP 5102.
