The Lenovo IdeaPad S210T is a touch laptop powered by 3rd generation Intel dual core Celeron processor with 2GB RAM and 500 GB HDD storage. This laptop sports an 11.6 inch 10 point touch screen and comes with AccuType Keyboard. It is priced at under Rs. 28,000.

There are two S210T versions available in the market one with 3rd gen Celeron 1.6GHz dual core and other with 3rd gen Pentium dual core clocked at 1.9GHz. The Pentium touch IdeaPad S210T  laptop is priced at Rs. 29,990.

Box Pack
Inside the box you will find the Lenovo IdeaPad S210T laptop, 3 cell battery of 2200mAh capacity, power adapter, power cable and quick start guide / warranty booklet. Depending from where you buy this laptop you can get a free Lenovo Branded Backpack or some other accessories. I got a USB mouse, headphone with speaker and desktop speakers for free.

It would be better if you ask and insist for the Backpack as some shop keepers might avoid giving that and instead give you other option and sell off the Backpack later on as an individual item and make extra money.

Lenovo touch S210T with windows 8 review

There is 2GB RAM and 500 GB storage. Touch screen is 11.6 inches with resolution 1366×768 pixels – 10 point multi touch supported. For input there is touchpad and AccuType Keyboard – this is different from traditional keyboards, it’s fast, accurate and comfortable to use. Almost all of the IdeaPad laptops come with AccuType keyboard.  On the front side there is the standby and low battery indicator.

Performance
The laptop performance is pretty good; the touch experience is good and gives the tablet feel. 2GB RAM is enough but in case you want you can add additional RAM of up to 8GB. This is not a very powerful laptop (Not recommended for gaming users), but decent enough for everyday general use like checking emails, surfing, social networking, office work, etc.

Lenovo S210T features

Sound output is really good thanks to the Stereo Speakers with Dolby Advanced Audio v2 technology.

Battery
The 3 cell battery gives a usage time of up to 4 hours. Full recharge in 2 hours 52 minutes from 12% to 60% with off sate and then in standby mode. Battery backup is 3 to 4 hours and even more depending on your usage. With continuous usage (minimal brightness) battery life is 3 to 3 hours 30 minutes.

Verdict
The under Rs. 20K Netbooks have almost disappeared from the markets. And when it comes to laptop with touch features there are in fact very few affordable option. The lowest touch laptop is the Lenovo Essential A10 that is powered by quad core and runs on Android 4.2 OS for around Rs. 20K. The other option is the IdeaPad S210T touch screen laptop for around Rs. 27,890.

  1. which laptop is the best for a teacher student ,to teach languges and literature.can someone advice me please

  2. Hi, I have seen you review, and I like the laptop then I purchased it. What my problem is, when I play same audio file, some times sound is not coming and some times its coming for same audio file. How to do the one key recovery process, how to recover the lenovo factory default setup.

    1. Is it happening with all audio or some? if on some then may be some issues with the file or it might need some extra codecs. Download Windows Essentials Media Codec Pack and see if that helps.

  3. Gogi sir I am a big fan of your website and you. Seeing the review made by you of NXG tablet I bought it as my first tablet in 2012. And it is working extremely well till now. I suggest your reviews to my friends and all of my friends and me buy any smartphone/ tablet after watching its review by you . I would like to thank you very much sir for reviewing mobiles computers etc soo beautiful and with every possible detail.

    Sir I am planning to buy a touch based laptop for myself as my first laptop. I want your guidance sir. I have few queries like
    1) will touch based laptop be durable
    2) which laptop to buy
    My budget 45000 rs .
    I have shortlisted one laptop . Its –

    HP Pavilion 15-B140TX Touchscreen Laptop (3rd Generation Intel Dual Core i5 Mobile Processor-3337U- 4GB RAM- 500GB HDD- 15.6Inch Touchscreen LED Display- Windows 8- NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M 2GB Graphics) (Sparkling Black Colour)

    I have searched all the web but couldn’t find a single review of it either in text or video.
    Please sir if possible review it on your website in text or video . Its a humble request from me. I would be highly obliged to you for your this act of kindness. Thank you sir in adavnce.

  4. hi gogi,
    i small question,,

    CAN we use the LAPTOP PLUGGED IN even after battery is 100% charged?

    will keeping it plugged in cause battery damage?

    1. It will be better not to do that, instead follow the battery charge – discharge process, i.e. charger when the battery is very low and remove from charger when the battery is full. This way you will get a better battery life and it will last longer.

  5. Hi dear sir,

    I want’s to buy a new assemble system for vice city and more game playing so pls can you advice me good system configuration.

    Thanks
    Ashok

  6. I bought the next version of this i3/4GB.. It has serious battery problems. The 3 cell battery doesn’t come for more than 90 minutes with normal browsing. I tried searching a 6 cell or 4 cell battery on Web but not finding one. I don’t recommend this s210t model if battery backup is one of ur major requirement.

  7. I want to buy one laptop in the price range of 30 to 40 k pls suggest some laptops. My requirement is to use some CAD software , Matlab, ANSYS and etc. seldom for movies

  8. Gogi, would you not prefer HP laptops below 25k, having AMD quad core and 4 GB ram, this lenovo has 2 GB which is low for win8, with 4GB ram this one will go above 30k.

    1. Depends on your usage the AMD quad core are with free dos so you will have to invest in the windows 8 OS, older version of windows (example win 7) I heard have compatibility issues.

  9. I think this is a gud buying looking forward to buy this laptop soon. Thanks for the nice review

  10. So gogi …. After d review did u feel that there is ocassionally lag or some glitch or hanged few times ?????

    1. I have used it for some time no lags, I will update in case of issues, so far none, I have the laptop with me until Sunday.

    1. i3 notebook widin 29k? is that with touch, cause the person who got this wanted the touch feature, every user has their own requirement.

  11. Pure shit, without dedicated graphics it’s nothing but junk. Who spends 28k on a touch laptop when you can buy one with a dedicated radeon gpu at 34k cheapest. Though not touchscreen.
