Buy Lenovo pink netbooks with Windows 7

Updated on March 7, 2010

Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2

If you are looking to buy a netbook that has strong features and capabilities for a reasonable price then the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 is a great buy. The features go beyond the manufacturers product description. Lenovo are proud of this netbooks Quick Start features as well as its OneKey Rescue System and the VeriFace facial recognition technology.

From a users point of view the strongest points are the great speakers for such a small laptop. A battery that lasts up to 6 hours under normal usages and a quick start operating system make this a great netbook for on the go use. A positive point important to any user is the keyboard, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 is among the largest for netbooks. All this means comfortable typing on a dynamic machine.

Lenovo Netbook Specs.

The specs for the Lenovo Netbook IdeaPad are pretty impressive. I will try to explain the features and what they mean to you as these are important and often confusing if you don't know the techno speak.

The memory size for this netbook is 1gb (PC2-5300 DDR2, a fancy way to say it has fast access to the memory). On a full blown proper computer 1gb might not be enough as a user is likely to have lots of applications open and running, for a netbook the type of use its bought for 1gb is pretty good. The web pages and applications use the memory for the time that said page or app is open to store cookies that allow for smooth use. If 1gb of memory is not enough then you probably want a laptop not a netbook.

This netbook has a SATA Hard Drive of 160gb and a speed of 5400rpm. The SATA hard drive is a particularly efficient hard drive and is only beat by a solid state hard drive for efficiency. When I say efficiency what I am referring to is the energy it needs to work at full speed. An efficient hard drive means that your netbook or laptop will not heat up as quickly or as much. As I say a solid state drive would be better but they are a lot more expensive and are more common in expensive laptops. A SATA hard drive is an excellent compromise in price and performance. With 160gb and a fast speed (5400 is very fast) all the applications and the operating system can load with space left over for a few files, maybe your class notes or the next few posts waiting to go into your blog. For a little machine to do any text work on this is just brilliant.

With 3 USB 2.0 ports you can connect any usb device to upload and download information from. USB 2.0 is a very common connection type for modern devices such as your digital camera, your MP3 player and memory sticks for taking work files with you wherever you go. USB 3 is out but most devices are USB 2 and the speed ultimately is determined by the slower device (your netbook or the device you are connecting to it). I look forward to USB 3 becoming more common but I personally will have to buy a new camera, MP3 player and memory stick!

The internet connection is a wireless fast ethernet connection and should keep up with the wifi transmitter with ease. The combination of a fast ethernet connection on a LED backlit display and an Intel integrated graphics card and a 1.3 megapixel web-cam make this a great machine to connect to the internet anywhere with wifi. I am really impressed with this little machine. My needs are that of an online writer, writing articles, researching topics and generally messing about online for inspiration and this netbook gives exactly what I need to work on the go.

      Micky Dee - I think netbooks are the best option for a writing pc as they are smaller and lighter then laptops. I think the iPad is trying to one up netbooks in the hopes of being a good writing machine. I also think that before long better versions will hit the market as other companies compete with similar machines with more functionality then the iPad. I am looking forward to being able to do a comparison hub :D

      Great hub. I wish there were "writing" PCs small enough and cheap enough, easy to use. I'm loaded with computers right now. Thanks
