Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t N470 convertible netbook now available

There have been gobs of netbooks debut over the last few months that are using the new Intel N450 Atom processor. The new processor promises more battery life thanks to less power consumption even if it doesn’t increase performance to speak of. The latest netbook to use the Pine Trail platform to hit store shelves is the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t.

The machine is notable because it is a convertible tablet netbook and it goes one better than that increasingly common N450 processor and crams the N470 clocked at 1.83 GHz into the mix. The machine also ships with Windows 7 Home Premium and has 2GB of RAM.

Combine the 2GB of RAM, Windows 7 Home Premium, and faster processor along with the convertible tablet form factor and Lenovo has one of the more interesting netbooks on the market today. The downside of those cool features is that the S10-3t costs more than the average netbook at $649.
