To the poster above me, IBM didn't team up with Lenovo they sold their desktop and laptop businesses to them probably because they couldn't keep the profits going. Lenovo is huge PC manufacturer in China.
BTW: the Ideapad S10 has dropped in to the $299 price range with the impending release of the s11 and s20. The big difference between the s10 and the mini 9 are std 2.5 inch drive, 10 inch screen, decent keyboard, 3 cell batt, expansion slot and a noisy/temperamental FAN
on the s10. why oh why did they have to put the fan to cool an atom 270? they almost had the perfect netbook.
