Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 gets hands-on treatment, favors S10

You've seen Lenovo's IdeaPad S10, right? If so, you'll surely recognize the recently revised S10-2 -- a mildly tweaked version of the netbook that sports the most minuscule of changes. That said, the new top cover and larger, more mature keyboard are certainly worth a gander, so head on down to the read link to give your eyes a treat.

The S10-2 differs most from its predecessor in looks. It has a rounder look and, according to the company, is .4 pounds lighter and .1 inches thinner. Instead of the matte lid of the original, it has a glossy cover (available in black, white, pink and gray) with adorned with a repeating pattern that looks strikingly similar to Target’s Bullseye. Surrounding the system are 3 USB ports (the first only had two), a 4-in-1 card reader, VGA and a head and mic jack. Lenovo nixed the Expresscard/34 slot of the original S10.

The real difference also comes in ergonomics. Lenovo has increased the size of the keyboard deck. Not only is the pitch of the keys wider but the right Shift key has been enlarged and placed below the Enter key (the original had a shrunken Shift key that was to the right of the up arrow). We found the keyboard to be firm and void of any flex.
