Lenovo updates Netbook line: meet the IdeaPad S10-2

The Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 (well, it's transparency in product naming, if nothing else) will be slightly thinner and lighter than the original.

We were impressed with the recent 6-cell battery upgrade for Lenovo's S10 Netbook, and now the company (most famous for the ThinkPad line of business laptops) has announced a bigger revamp.

The Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 (well, it's transparency in product naming, if nothing else) will be slightly thinner and lighter than the original, starting at 2.2 pounds and .71-inches. There's a new patterned design on the lids, available in white, black, pink, or grey.

We recently got a sneak peek at the new S10-2, and the most notable improvement was probably the tweaked keyboard, which has a larger right-shift key -- usually the trickiest part of designing a Netbook keyboard.

Inside, you'll find the same Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB of RAM, and 160GB hard drive, plus the quick-launch pre-Windows OS and VeriFace facial-recognition software we found on the most recent S10.

The new Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 will be announced later this evening, and will run from $349 to $399 (for a version with a 3G antenna built in).
