Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t

CNET rating: 3.5 stars out of 5 (Very Good)

The good: Great design, easy-to-rotate screen, better-than-average Netbook specs.

The bad: Poor battery life, touch screen is laggy at times.

The cost: $549.00

The bottom line: The Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t convertible Netbook tablet is priced to compete with the iPad, but underwhelming battery life and unpredictable touch response mar an otherwise sharp-looking portable.
