Lenovo gave me a quick look at the IdeaPad S9/S10 during a meeting in San Francisco yesterday. The IdeaPad S10 is Lenovo’s entry into the ‘netbook’ market and will start at just $399.
The S9/S10′s chasis feels pretty well solid and well balanced for such an affordable notebook, but the prototype wasn’t functional so I couldn’t play with it as much as I wanted to. The IdeaPad in the below video has a 9-inch display and will be marketed as the S9 in Asia (notice the thick bezel around the display), but is otherwise identical to the 10-inch version that will be sold in the U.S.
update: in my rush to record and get this video up I referred to it as the IdeaPad S10, but it’s actually an S9. The S9′s and S10′s chassis are identical.
