It looks a really nice design in that video - probably the most professional-looking netbook so far...

Tom said...

are you going to be reviewing one of these jkk?

I really don't understand why Lenovo would not release the S9 in USA. I wanna buy the S9 Linux version!

It looks like the best netbook in the market right now, but just wait for Dell and probably Sony as well to change the game. Asus is too expensive for a netbook. Hopefully, competition will bring the price down!

Interesting, how big is the bulk price of 10-inch screen for manufacturing compare to the 9-inch screen? I mean is the price difference between 9' and 10' netbook models more determined by screen price difference? Or maybe it's just by will of marketing?

whyyy Lenovo??? I can't believe they won't release the smaller version in the US. I dig that 9" a lot and for $399 that's a good price for what you get. Design and build quality look excellent from that video although I could pass on that glossy cover ><.

Well it's not coming to the U.S, so I'm screwed.

If that's true about the housing JKK, then they did a pretty good job of giving the illusion that the bezel isn't very thick. For some reason, when I look at it, it looks like a 9" sized notebook.

Man, I'm so sorry that the Lenovo guy had a gun to your head and said "Hurry! Hurry!". Otherwise we could have had a less speedy review. It's the only explanation and quite clear when you watch the video.

That has to be the sexiest cheapo UMPC yet.
I would ditch my current UMPC lover for this baby.

I like everyone else gripe about it not coming to the USA. Maybe I can get a Chinese friend to pick one up for me.
