Lenovo Ideapad S12 for £269.00 + Quidco (5%)

Have been converted to Lenovo for all our work PC's now for a while. They are usually very reliable. The processor on this looks a little under-powered at full price but for under £260 with Quidco seems good value for money.

Haven't seen it posted anywhere else on here.

That's a good price for the black one swafe. Smaller hard-drive seems the only difference and direct on Lenovo's website the black model is a lot dearer.
#3
£50 cheaper here.

The only difference I can see is that this one has a 250GB hard disk.
#4
50 quid saving is good for a slightly smaller hdd, 250gb is enough just depends if you want a white or a black one :)

That comment is rubbish these are great netbooks and work fine.
#10
hi dudes, decent netbook and very very nifty, only downside is that the screen will only tilt back around 130degrees (so wont go flat) due to teh battery taking some room

all in all its deffo worth £199 (as i had got it last week from the deal posted above)... looks better in black me thinks....


thanks

Why on earth is this still getting so hot - do not be mislead. These are 219 quid at saveonlaptops (link ^^)

£229 for the white version at save on laptops, but really been put off them by the way they suddenly put the price of the black version up £20 when it was in their sale stock and stocks had not sold out, just trying to make a quick buck off a few late comers.

I got mine just before Christmas, next day delivery (free). I went for the slightly dearer version with 320gb HDD and a 3G sim slot build in.

I thought long and hard about this (slower/ older processor) but haing used it, it is great.... fast and easy to use, full size keyboard, good speakers, clear images to watch a fim on.... very pleased.

https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/Lenovo_IdeaPad_S12_679708.html is the white one I went for. Very pleased with Save on Laptops, good communication and delivered on time - Happy New Year!

overpriced netbook, that has nothign going for it. Not worth more than 220-230 which should be its normal price. Overpriced at anything beyond that. Might as well pay the extra £30 and buy a £300 laptop that is much much much much better.

I beg to differ, ION beats the pants off Intel GMA, overclock this thing and you'll get better performance.

HDMI, Bluetooth, decent battery, decent keyboard, and more vertical lines than the crappy 768 we get from 15.6" laptops. I'd choose this over an acer laptop anyday.

At £219, it is the same price as a low end Netbook, and £230 + £30 = £260?

+1. Some netbooks like dell mini 10's etc still go for about 279-300. And this is dramatically better in every way (except battery). Even the most common netbooks like acer aspire one's and samsungs, hp mini's and so on go for these prices! 220-230 is a cracking price for these.

I have to agree this is a cracking machine to use even more so when i have overclocked slightly, runs everything i throw at it.

Have to agree with all the positive comments - I picked one these up from the saveonlaptops deal and couldn't be happier. Keyboard is an absolute joy and screen is fab. dazznuts - I'd be really interested to know how you safely overclocked the processor?

I had to install Nvidia ion desktop graphic driver 260.99 (notebook version wouldnt work)
then the asrock overclock tool, i have only overclocked by 10% to 1738mhz FSB from 133 to 145, system runs stable highest temp i got under full load was 44-46oc. some people have O/C by 30% google it to see what others have acheived, i have noticed a difference with the 10%. i dont overclock every time i use the netbook it all depends on what software i am going to run

Oh yes, because all tgech companies are bastions of morality aren't they? Don't so naieve and idealistic, 90% of online stores do this, they are businesses out to make money on low margins, it's nothing unusual.

Does this version have an actual 3g modem built in or is it just a slot for one? There is no mention of it in the spec.
#23
Has anybody else got 'excessive' fan noise on their S12? I got mine a couple of days ago (great service from Saveonlaptops) but the fan seems to be running at max speed contiuously and quite annoying.
#24
I have been given a N280 CPU from a recent pull, i asume this netbook will take this CPU will i notice a performance boost going from single core to dual core, any feedback before i strip my S12

Going from single to dual core will make a significant difference, especially with 2gb ram installed. But i'm not following... the n280 is single core, so how are you going to make this dual core? You can't add them both at once can you?
#26
thought the N280 was a dual core CPU

Don't think so. http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=41411
It's the newer version of the n270 but its not dual core. The dual core atom's are the n330 and the n550.
#28
Thought it was, no point striping it them may as well just use the OC tool that i have

Great service from box.co.uk (saveonlaptops.co.uk), ordered on friday and got it monday. From prompt notifications, to system condition, to communications. I can only recommend them, wish if major computer outlets had this level of service. Thanks to their team.
