Some suit in a Lenovo boardroom had a great idea that if the company slaps the letter ‘e’ onto the S10 netbook name, the world would be a better place. The S10e is therefore geared to the education crowd, touting the same exact specs of the original S10 netbook of an Intel 1.6GHz Atom processor, 4GB SSD or 160GB HDD, WiFi, Bluetooth, and a 10.1 LCD display, but now comes equipped with the Lenovo Quick Start instant-on OS powered by Splashtop. So rather than simply rolling out the update to the current offerings, the world now has another netbook and I doubt the world is better because of it.
