Black Lenovo S210 has a super compact design for easy portability at only 0.9 inch thickness and 3.1 lbs weight. Being so slim and lightweight, it doesn't have an optical drive on it but 802.11bgn wireless, 1 x USB 2.0 Port, 1 x USB 3.0 Port for 10 times speedier data transfers, a 720p HD webcam with face tracking and low-light sensitivity, an HDMI output to connect to even larger screens. It has a 24Wh Lithium ion battery that will officially give you about 4 hours of battery life- but was reported to be more like 2.5 hours in practice.

The full-sized and ergonomic AccuType keyboard with rounded keys is comfy to use and helps you type accurately. It also has a multitouch touchpad with smallish left and right clicks but it is nothing you can't get used to. OneKey Recovery function helps make backing up your system, recovery, dealing with viruses as well as other technical troubles a breeze.

Conclusion: Lenovo Ideapad S210 59387503 is a good compact laptop. Sure, the battery life is not very long despite the Lenovo Energy Management system and the screen is all right. But it runs quietly, offers decent performance, comes with a 24 month warranty, has an intuitive touchscreen and it is a good alternative to those very expensive touchscreen Ultrabooks. Well worth checking out its nicely discounted price on Amazon.
