We had great things to say in our review of the grand prize, the ThinkPad T410. Our review model received an overall system score of 4 1/2 stars out of 5, and it got a higher score than the HP EliteBook 8540p in terms of overall system performance (PCMark05). We said the notebook performs “very fast” thanks to the Core i5-540M on our model, 4GB of RAM, and the fast 320GB Seagate HDD at 7200rpm.
We also said that it has great battery life (6-cell or 9-cell battery), has increased upgrade capabilities, and that it has an excellent port selection. It comes equipped with dedicated and integrated graphics cards; NVIDIA NVS-3100M, or Intel GMA 5700MHD.
The 10.1-inch IdeaPad S10-3 netbook with Windows 7 Starter comes in two models which are practically identical, save the processor. The two CPU types that come with the netbook are the Intel Atom N455 and the Atom N450. Both models are built with Intel GMA 3150, 1GB RAM, a 250GB HDD, and a 6-cell Li-Ion battery pack.
