Lenovo IdeaPad S12 reviewed by PC Magazine


The Lenovo IdeaPad S12 netbook has recently been reviewed by PC Magazine. Here's the summary: "With the IdeaPad S12, Lenovo produces its best 12-inch netbook yet, but there's a price premium above your average netbook."

Pros:
  • Great looking 12-inch widescreen. 1,280-by-800 resolution.
  • Best keyboard on a netbook.
  • ExpressCard slot is present.
  • Very good battery life.
Cons:
  • Pricey compared with other netbooks. A bit heavier than its peers.
Thinkpads have an industry reputation of having an excellent keyboard. So, if Lenovo designs netbooks with the keyboard in mind, then I'm sure the S12 is an excellent keyboard. It's not often that you see something get rated as the "best keyboard on a netbook." These things are so small to begin with, that you can't expect a really great keyboard. However, the PC Magazine editors found that the S12 has a "superb full-size keyboard." Sounds like a winner!
