Re: Lenovo Ideapad S10 success stories?
Lenovo was pretty unprofessional about my request. The guy I talked to said that these machines don't have real windows licenses so they couldn't refund anything. After I explained what an oem license was he hung up on me.

With that said, the only reason they would not consider refunding winxp was because I purchased through Circuit City and would have to request a refund from them. The only reason I did not go through Lenovo directly was because they were not offering the higher spec'd model at the time. Anyway, if you purchased through them you may have some success.
Ubuntu does work perfectly on this machine. I've had no issues except the unacceptably small right shift key. 1680x1050 external monitor was too sluggish for me, 1280x1024 was ok. 720p HD movies from my Vado are too much, unfortunately- videos are a slideshow. h.264 encoded dvd's work great. All the emulators I setup worked beautifully. Very cool little gaming/multimedia machine.
