Cool Lenovo S9

Has anybody on this forum got any experience with this netbook, thinking i could probably get one just to see what netbooks are really like, heard mixed feedback.
Its not available many places and its actually being discontinued from the place i could get.
My question is... is it a decent buy for 199...
I also in time would be able to maybe upgrade the RAM and change the HDD.

I am rather happy about the S10. Just make sure you get the model with the 6 Cell Battery, not the 3 Cell. I made the mistake of getting the 3 Cell model. Currently waiting for my battery supplier to start stocking the 6 cell batterys for this machine.

The one touch recovery console is good. However on the bad side, it does not like working if you re-partitioned the drive. However i can normally work around that.

Apart from that, I am rather happy with the S10

Whats the one touch recovery system?
Is it just so that you can do a clean install if your netbook gets a virus or something?

Yes. You press this button and it start the recovery process for your Windows Xp home.
