Appreciate the information on the other units. I didn’t devuldge the information that I already have a MSI Wind.

As far as all the problems with Lenovo and the S10. I actively participate at the S10Lenovo.com site. It’s not the CSR’s fault as they only have what’s available from info on their computers. But some of the email responses the members have gotten over the past months go from disbelief to hilarious. I have been a IBM/Lenovo user of desktops & laptops for over 15 years now as my company leases from them.

Lenovo “inherited” IBM’s mission statement.

James, I think you’ll be quite pleased with the S10. Just keep the AC adapter handy, not a big deal since it’s pretty small.

HP mininote still on sale, and no rebate required. Now $629 for the top-of-the-line model on newegg.com.

@Lonnie U.,

Lenovo has had some serious issues with their specs. I don’t know if it’s a translation issue or what, but all sorts of features, sizes, prices, etc have been mixed up on their website. Hopefully they get things figured out because it looks really bad (and may begin to reflect on their build quality).

@Bill,

So does my ASUS 1000H, but it’s no reason to gloat.

@Lonnie U,

My 6-cell MSI Wind that I purchased here in the Los Angeles area, comes with bluetooth.

Woot! That one is on my short list of 10″ netbooks! Can’t wait to hear your comparison to the HP Mini. I particularly want deets on the keyboard and the speakers! (Remember those awesome speakers the Mini had, James?)

Well do the USA readers a favor that I have not seen on any other review site. All the units sent to reviewers so far have included bluetooth. NONE of the consumer shipped units in the USA market are including bluetooth. The Asian and now European market do. I (and a lot of others) ordered on the first day and specs from that day till the first known person got theirs on 9/24 could never be confirmed by any Lenovo CSR. The first month on the sales site was a moving target of options. Please point this out if they have “baited” your review unit.

Ah… given your earlier post about netbook fever I assumed you bought one :-) Maybe this will help you make up your mind.

I hope you remembered to use the Lenovo Visa affinity page ( http://www.lenovo.com/shop/deals/visa ), which drops the price down to $403.88 from $439.00. You have to buy with a Visa card, but most people I know have one.

Speaking of that, they’re having a great sale on the X200 right now (not the tablet, just the regular ultraportable) – 33% off, plus another 14% if you use coupon USX14MOREX200. I threw one together in my cart, and it came out to $1096.74:

Intel Core2 Duo processor P8400 (2.26GHz, 3MB L2, 1066MHz FSB)
Genuine Windows Vista Business 64
12.1 WXGA (1280×800), 2×2 UltraConnect II antenna , WWAN, Camera
Intel GMA X4500 HD
2 GB PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM 1067MHz SODIMM Memory (1 DIMM)
TrackPoint
160GB Hard Disk Drive, 7200rpm
Integrated Bluetooth PAN
Intel WiFi Link 5100 (AGN)
Integrated Wireless Wide Area Network upgradable
ThinkPad X200 Series 4 cell Li-Ion Battery
7454: 1 Year Depot Warranty – TopSeller

Very tempting…

Brought to you by the letter S and the number 10.

That looks like a good one (except for 3-cell battery).
