Lenovo S10e

Article comments

Our sample Lenovo S10e was finished in matt black and has a rigidity to its construction rarely seen elsewhere. Take the keyboard, for example - almost zero flex and a good honest keyboard that stands out as one of the better micro keyboards we've seen.

The keys may be small but we found fast accurate typing to be surprisingly easy on the Lenovo S10e.

The Lenovo S10e may be a little more industrial looking than some curvy contenders, but this is all for the benefit of the final result. The trackpad is small but it has good precision. Our only concern here was with the click buttons which are absurdly recessed and require you to press hard from a raised thumb.

The standard-issue netbook screen of 1,024x600 is replaced here by a 1,024x576 panel. This may be good for watching 16:9 video, but in the context of a laptop of limited dimensions this means even less horizontal lines in which to accommodate important OS user interface features such as ok/Cancel buttons that often appear down the screen.

And Lenovo has elected to go for the showy high-gloss coating which adds nothing to usability in daylight.

The Lenovo S10e's battery life is also a little below par at under two and half hours (148 minutes).
