Short hands-on video with the Lenovo IdeaPad S9

Posted on 08 August 2008, Last updated on 11 November 2019 by

Xavier from got a little bit of hands on time with the IdeaPad S9, Lenovo’s Atom based entry into the netbook market (to clear up any confusion, the S9 is a 9″ version that will be sold in Asia, the S10 is a 10″ version which will be sold in the US, the chassis of the two is the same, only the screen size differs). While the netbook sector is surely crowded, the S10 stands out to me for a few reasons. First of which is the solid $399 price point. We have seen lower prices before, but the S9 is said to support up to 2GB of RAM, and offer 80GB and 160GB HDD capacities. Second is that I find this netbook nicely styled. Sure, we only get a quick glimpse of it in this video, but it looks thin and modern. The unit in the video is in fact a prototype so we will have to hope it doesn’t change very much by the time it reaches the market.
