As both a netbook and a tablet the S10-3t leaves a bit more to be desired. Sure, we're disappointed that the N470 processor doesn't provide improved performance, but what's even more aggravating is that $649 buys you a tiny trackpad, sluggish touchscreen software and terrible viewing angles.

The Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t convertible Netbook tablet is priced to compete with the iPad, but underwhelming battery life and unpredictable touch response mar an otherwise sharp-looking portable.

If you can past the single-piece touchpad and lackluster speeds, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t is one of the few netbooks that have a rotating touch display.

The s10-3t is a decent netbook, and the extended battery lasts forever. But it gets a 7 mainly due to its poor performance as a tablet. The capacitive touch screen isn't very responsive, and Windows 7 isn't the most tablet-friendly OS. I may install Windows 8 and see if that helps any. If it...

Good little netbook/tablet. It just works and works well. No it isn't the fastest thing in the world nor are you going to be hooking up all your entertainment devices to it. But for an extremely portable Windows laptop I do not think you can go wrong.
