Lenovo IdeaPad S10 and Heat

Lenovo IdeaPad S10 Seems that, like certain other netbooks, the 10.2″ Lenovo IdeaPad S10 can get a little hot in areas.

I’m not sure if this is based on a pre-production / review model (which could change significantly from the final shipping models and one of the articles linked is one we mentioned a few weeks ago), but Blogeee is reporting on a couple of Chinese sites that are displaying temperature readings that are a little uncomfortable.

We are looking at temperatures of 38 – 42 °C (around 100 to 108 °F) on the keyboard and palm-rest, which as Blogeee speculates, could be due to the placement of the Intel Northbridge on the systemboard. Basically, as they say, low-noise and cost are having to be balanced, and in this case, you end up with some extra heat. They also mention a weight of 1.231 kg (2.7 pounds) which is with what I consider to be normal for this class (they consider it a bit heavier). As we said, these maybe pre-production models (and a lot is probably being lost in the translations between Chinese, French, and English).
