Now we come to the benchmark portion of the review. I will be using the standard netbook test suite consisting of our iTunes encoding test, movie encoding test and battery life with Battery Eater Pro. The first benchmark up will be Battery Eater Pro.

Right off the bat, we put the battery of the Lenovo S10-2 through its paces with Battery Eater Pro. BEP is a grueling benchmark that tends to be harder on the battery of machines than the real world, so your mileage may vary. Battery life is certainly one of the best features of the Lenovo netbook. Check out the chart below for the benchmark results.

Next on the test regime is our iTunes encoding test. We take the full Stone Temple Pilots Core CD in MP3 format and use iTunes to encode the album to AAC format and time the process with a stopwatch. The S10-2 did as expected for the class on this benchmark. See the chart below for the results.

The final netbook benchmark is the movie encoding test where we take the Microsoft Wonder of Flight video in 1080p HD and encode it to DVD quality video with CD quality Audio. Check out the chart below for the benchmark results.
