I recently bought a Lenovo Thinkpad S10-3 from Ebay, and it came today. It was a little surreal, because while I knew the thing was small, being a netbook, I had no idea how small. I got the box and thought, "What's this? The only thing I'm expecting is my new netbook. But this box is way too small to be that!" Well, it was. I must've spent 45 minutes after opening it gushing about how adorable it is. Seriously, it's tiny and fucking cute as all heck. It's only a bit over 2 pounds! I compared it to my Dana, and when closed, it is smaller than the Dana! At least, width by depth anyway, if not by height.

Works well. I've been installing things I'll need for its purpose of writing, though I also installed Firefox, an ebook reader, a PDF viewer, and eSpeak.

Gonna have to get a cooling pad and a mouse for it. Trackpad works, but I hate trackpads. Oh, and the keyboard is so tiny that typing on it sucks, so I may have to get a USB keyboard for it.

Only real minus was that it only has 2 USB ports, and my research on the web about it said it had 3. Oh well.
