I’m reviewing the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t laptop on my geek blog today. It’s actually a netbook with a multi-touch screen that rotates and folds into a tablet. Neat! My brother purchased one and I took it out for a test drive. The Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t features a 10.1″ SD LED multi-touch display, Intel ATOM Processor N455 (1.66GHz 667MHz 512KB), Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150, 2 GB PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM 667MHz, Windows 7 Home Premium (32-bit), integrated 1.3MP webcam (1024×600), touchpad, 320GB hard drive (5400 rpm), 4-cell lithium-ion battery, BCM 4313 BGN wireless networking card, bluetooth v2.1 + EDR, and one year warranty. Bottom line: the IdeaPad S10-3t is a cool device for people who love netbooks and tablets. In tablet mode, the device is thicker than other tablets. However, the S10-3t makes up for the one-inch thickness with its ability to convert back and forth from a netbook to a tablet.
At CES 2011 (yeah, I wish I was there), Lenovo showed off their IdeaPad U1 hybrid with LePad slate. The Lenovo product is both a laptop and a detachable tablet. Pretty cool. Even more awesome is that it runs both Windows 7 and Android 2.2. When the slate is docked (IdeaPad U1 mode), the system runs Windows 7. When the tablet is detached (LePad slate mode), the system runs Android 2.2. I don’t have one to play with, but it’s suppose to switch operating systems seamlessly and magically.
