575 - Ideapad S10-2
Tuesday, August 11, 2009

This is probably going to be my next computer purchase. Any advice? I want a netbook, probably with long battery life, probably either a 9 or 10 inch screen. Looking for the lowest cost also, below $400 shipped.

    I've used the S10-1's and they're pretty lame.

    Atom processor is like a PIII, and a 5400RPM disk is very slow. With only 1GB of RAM you'll be paging to disk a lot, which really hurts with that laptop. Not that a 9" screen encourages much multitasking anyway.

    It depends on what you need it for, but I'd consider this carefully. You may end up feeling like it was $300 that could have been put towards a decent re-furb.

    The netbook concept makes some sense for email/light web. But the atom will even choke up on YouTube if you're doing much else.

    I would recommend looking at Dell's netbooks which give you the option of a SSHD and ubuntu linux.

    But unless you are going for ultra-portable as the primary feature, avoid net books.

    Well I do want ultra portable... I have never had a laptop of my own (though used my parent's laptops from time to time) because they are not all that portable. They are heavy and a pain to lug around.

    I do not need games or anything heavy, but would need youtube and other things like that.

    I have looked around quite a bit, and while I like the SD laptops from dell, they dont have a great battery life (these are 6+ hours) and also dont offer the 160 gigs.

    I have not placed the order yet, so any other opinions would be welcomed.
