"Lenovo offers a few S10 netbooks; the S10e is simply targeted at educational deployments. Like every other netbook on the market, it’s no speed demon.

The small shift key takes some getting used to, but the keyboard feel is all Lenovo/IBM/Thinkpad (anyone who has used a Thinkpad knows that’s a good thing). No flex, great tactile response, and no chiclets."
