Pink Netbooks Lenovo

The Lenovo IdeaPad S10 is one of several pink netbook computers on the market today which have no problem living up to their ultra portable reputation. We were recently had the opportunity to review a rather maxed out version of this colorful laptop. By definition this is technically a netbook computer. The netbooks are the ultra portable mini laptops (often using the 10.1″ screen) which have become so popular in the market lately.

The Lenovo pink netbook we reviewed weighs in at a mere 2.6 pounds and looks like it could fit into most small bags with plenty of room to spare. The Lenovo IdeaPad S10 is a 10.2 inch netbook which is powered by the ever popular Atom N270 processor. The Atom processors are designed by Intel to specifically fit into the netbook computers and still offer exceptional performance while maximizing power conservation.

The Lenovo IdeaPad S10 we reviewed had 2GB of DDR2-667 memory installed in it which is the maximum that this particular netbook will take (some earlier netbooks will only take up to 1GB). This amount of RAM in reality became quite noticeable when running several applications at once. During our performance benchmarking, which included a specific focus on testing the responsiveness of the laptop during multitasking, the computer remained pleasantly responsive due to the additional memory.

Installed on the nice sized 320 GB SATA hard drive is Microsoft Windows XP Home edition which happens to boot noticeably quicker than a lot of computers out there, plus the OS had been freshly installed. This model happens to use the Intel 945GSE chipset as well.

We have already noticed a trend beginning in that the netbooks available in the market are improving in their design and performance as the competition among manufacturers of ultra portables increases. These little portable computers are definitely here to stay, and more manufacturers are getting in on the action as consumer demand appears to be very strong from home users, to students to business professionals.

Additional features found on these rather classy pink netbooks include a 4-in-1 card reader, SD, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, MMC, 512KB L2 cache, a 10.2″ WSVGA (1024×600) LCD display, and the Intel GMA950 graphics controller.

Along with the 802.11g/b Wireless LAN capabilities the various ports include a Fast Ethernet port, Mini Bluetooth, 2x USB 2.0 ports, integrated 1.3 megapixel webcam (with microphone), 1x ExpressCard, integrated microphone and stereo speakers. The Lenovo IdeaPad S10 also comes with many standard features you would find on most of today’s pink laptop computers such as an RJ45 Ethernet port for connecting to the LAN and or internet, a standard VGA port for connecting the netbook to an external monitor, a 40W AC power adapter, and a headphone jack.
