    After shopping around what seemed like the entire internet, I came upon this laptop. I only had 500 dollars to spend, so I wanted to make the best possible decision. After inter comparing every feature and taking into account the reputation of the makers, I narrowed my choices down to one or two laptops, and eventually chose this one due to the price. I’m quite satisfied with it. The only thing I didn’t like was windows 8, but with some modification and programs, I customized even that to my liking. Overall, this is a no frills laptop with excellent performance for the price.

    Bought this for my high school grads going off to college. Great quality. Not crazy about Win8 but Lenovo doesn’t put a ton of bloat ware

    Why is it cheaper than other laptops? It is because of all the bloatware it has; however, they can be uninstalled. It is a great at home office laptop with sold performance with 5 hour battery on battery saving mode. The accurate keyboard is great and smooth. I’ve had this laptop for a month now and I’m still a happy consumer!

    At ~$300, you can’t go wrong with this laptop.

    The Processor:
    I plugged it into my Asus 1080P monitor and it performs just fine (mostly videos). I worried that the Intel 2500 Integrated Graphics couldn’t handle it, but it did just fine. On top of that I plugged in my USB 3.0 to DVI external video card from startech.com into the USB 3.0 port, and it was stable (this method puts a strain on the CPU when going through USB). So I had two monitors coming from this thing, and it did even run warm. The Video feeds struggled a little more than Lenovo Thinkpad T430, but a negligible amount.

    The Trackpad:
    This area leaves some things to be desired. The trackpad is not super sharp, but you get used to it quickly. The Left & Right click are somewhat small, so it is best to get used to tapping the trackpad to left-click.

    The Keyboard:
    Doesn’t depress as much as I would like to. It has a similar feel to the Microsoft Surface depressing keyboards. But you get used to it. The keyboard isn’t cramped at all.

    The Touch Screen:
    Responsive, and precise, just like an ipad.
    At first, the touch interface would not resume after sleep, I’d tap the screen and nothing would happen. A quick bios driver update from the lenovo website fixed that.

    The Battery Life:
    2.5 Hour max. Plug this thing in whenever you can, not a huge drawback, I use this for studying in the library, so there’s always an outlet on the table.

    Weight:
    Awesome, you don’t even feel it in the bag.

    Tips:
    -Update all of your drivers, specifically the BIOS
    -Install “start is back”. It’s the best blend of Windows 7 & 8
    -install “keytweak” to remap certain keys on the keyboard to fit your interface.
    -turn on right the trackpad’s vertical scroll on the right (even though the resolution is standard, you tend to overshoot the scrolling in pages with the two-finger scroll). You can do this by clicking the the “show hidden icons” triangle in the bottom right and selecting “ELAN Pointing Device” (after updating your drivers for the trackpad of course).
    -while you’re at it, reverse the scrolling if necessary.

    This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad S210 59387503 11.6-Inch Touchscreen Laptop (Black) (Personal Computers)

    I have had the computer for about a week, and will divide my experience into 3 categories:

    (1) Software:

    Like a number of other reviewers, I dislike this operating software. For anyone familiar with the excellent XP, the excellent Windows 7, or some of the other excellent earlier Windows versions, using Windows 8 means starting over again. Translation: Loss of productivity and inability to take advantage of past experience. If you want to start over again with computers, my recommendation is to buy a Mac.

    Here’s why I say that: Do you want to start Windows 8 in Safe Mode? Good luck finding out how. Do you want the Start Button? That’s hidden too. Did you like the Gadgets feature in Windows 7? Gone (for security reasons). Do you prefer the Start screen to the App screen? Not so easy to get there. Or maybe at the App screen you can’t even figure out how to turn off the computer. Who wants to learn how to do that?

    Software bottom line: For me, I regret ever having bought a Windows 8 computer, and wish I hadn’t done so. Even the free upgrade to Windows 8.1 on this computer took 12 hours to achieve (though it went without a hitch). And I see not a single advantage — not one that I’ve noticed in actual usage — to Windows 8 over Windows 7.

    Skip Windows 8, an upgrade designed by engineers unwilling to recognize what users want and determined to foist their view on them. Apps are fine for a phone, even for a tablet; but who needs them on a computer? The business user isn’t using a computer to play games or to place hamburger orders.

    Software workaround: A way around the regret over Windows 8 is to seek some help from Microsoft Support itself. I spent considerable time, at no charge, getting excellent help from Microsoft to enable me to configure this computer so that it would feel as much as possible like Windows 7. Doing that is possible to a large extent, and that makes the software issue at least tolerable, though hardly preferable.

    (2) Hardware:

    a. Pros
    >Nice screen, responsive to finger touch or the mouse
    >HD 64-bit performs quickly at this stage
    >Lightweight, portable, attractive unit
    >Exterior of notebook is not the typically sleek surface which collects finger prints, but an appealingly ribbed surface which shows no dirt
    >Power bar is compact and costs around $45 for a replacement
    >Battery is replaceable for about $55 (unfortunately available only in 3 Amp size)
    >RAM is upgradeable but expensive at about $135 for 8 GB (max)
    >SD slot is nice to have, but unlike most other notebooks the card slides in all the way, allowing you to leave it in the computer and use it for extra storage. Because of the placement of the card slot on the side of this computer, there is no space to insert the entire card. The location could and should have been moved

    b. Cons
    >Hard drive makes no noise and there is no light showing it’s active. I’m not sure why this is desirable, given that it’s useful to know sometimes whether software is operating or not (the usual sign: hard drive is active and makes noise or is seen to be working by a flickering LED light);
    >Only 2 USB ports (1 is 3.0): I use the 2.0 port for a blue tooth adapter for a mouse because I don’t care for track pads, they’re not as accurate or quick as a mouse. Workaround: I bought an Anker 4 port USB 3.0 device from Amazon, which works fine;
    >Keyboard is ok, takes a bit of getting used to because it does not have a responsive feel;
    >Battery life is only about 2.5 hours
    >Windows 8 software, about 30 seconds after the initial startup, has the screen go blank. Who thought of that one? You’re sitting in front of a toaster and don’t even know if it’s working — really?

    3. Caveat

    >I have not needed support from Lenovo at this point, but on going to their website and searching for “S210″ (or a variation of that) one comes up with no results. Funny, isn’t it: put “S210″ into the Amazon search box and you get results, but do the same thing at the manufacturer’s website and you get zilch. That does not breed confidence in their providing good support, but this is only a hunch not a known fact.

    Conclusion: I recommend this computer, especially because of its low price (even if you didn’t purchase it on Cyber Monday), notwithstanding the tradeoff of the various negative features I’ve noted above. In comparison to the Acer Aspire One netbook which this replaces for me, and which ran on XP and was limited to 1 GB Ram and actually cost more, this is far preferable.

    This is a great little computer for a great price. As soon as I got it, I increased the memory to 8GB and it runs everything great. I run MS Office Suite (Excel, Word, Powerpoint, etc.) and Adobe Photoshop (along with some other Creative Suite programs) and they run great. The battery life is too short though (only getting 2 hours) but I don’t use energy saving mode at all, just the performance mode. I will buy several more of these for my family because this is a great little computer. Love the touch-screen for this price. FYI – it only has one memory slot that I could see, so I took out the 4GB memory stick and added (1) 8GB memory stick to upgrade the memory.
