Free MeeGo IdeaPad S10-3t for developers as Intel get open-source serious

If you thought Intel weren't taking MeeGo seriously, think again. The MeeGo Conference 2010 has kicked off in Dublin this morning, and Intel has just told attendees that everyone is getting a free Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t convertible touchscreen netbook running the open-source OS.

We reviewed the IdeaPad S10-3t back in March 2010, finding it was sluggish under Windows 7 and suffered from mediocre battery life; in the end, only aggressive pricing saved it. Free is obviously better than discounted, however, and we'll be interested to hear how MeeGo runs on the Atom CPU; after all, this is Intel's main push for mobility products.
