Ideapad S10, do you recomend it?

I have a friend that is asking me for buying a netbook. One Ideapad S10 at 230 eur shipped, new. I have been user of Tx series and still have a T400, but I should like any of you confirm if the netbooks of Lenovo are good quality? Do you recomend the purchase?

Thanks in advance.

If you bought it off eBay, what is actually in the T400 case may bear little relationship to the model/configuration number on the system. A sad fact of life. Cheers, Bill B. The label is ok, what happens is that I don´t find model ZDH. Where can I search for the serial number? If this one was a co...

12inch wide screen

Just a quick question for X200/onwers. Do it´s screen cause fatique for it´s size? Too small or is ok? I have doubts between T400 and X200, X200 and X200s seems famous for it´s battery life, but T400 users seems to get 10 hours aswell.. X200 is half lither and portable, but is the screen size a issue?
