Lenovo is the former IBM division that made PCs for non-business consumers. Remember the IBM ThinkPad? Well the Lenovo netbook is IdeaPad. Catchy, huh.
Lenovo released the S Series IdeaPads to compete with the likes of Asus, Acers, Dell, and HP in the netbook space. Much like the other netbook makers, the S Series are initially offered below $500.
The battery life for the first few models seems to be unimpressive with the 3-cell units giving only a little over 2 hours of operation. 6-cell batteries should provide approximately 5.5 hours. For the same or lower price, many other netbooks, such as the Acer AO751H, provide over 8 hours of battery life in a single charge. So perhaps, the Lenovo IdeaPads are not quite up to par just yet. But depending on your ability to read from miniature screens, the 12.1″ screen may still be the best netbook choice for you or just be willing to spend another couple of hundred dollars for a full-size laptop
