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.
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 IdeaPad S210T design and specifications
The S210T weighs around 1.5Kg and is of dimension 299x207x22.3mm. I got the black color model, it has a texture on the top. The laptop is sleek with good built quality. There is one touch recovery button on the left side along with RJ 45 port, HDMI port and USB port. On the right side there is 3.5mm audio jack, 2 in 1 card reader, another USB port and power port. There is 1xUSB 2.0 and 1xUSB 3.0 ports. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are also included. In addition there is a 720p HD camera on the front.
This laptop runs on windows 8 OS (64 bit) and can be upgraded to 8.1 for free. It is powered by 3rd gen Celeron Dual core processor (1017U) clocked at 1.6GHz coupled with Intel HD graphics processor.
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.
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.
Sound output is really good thanks to the Stereo Speakers with Dolby Advanced Audio v2 technology.
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.
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.
