I don't have one myself, but I assure you - it will handle PowerPoint without a hitch.
If I had one, I would upgrade the RAM to 2GBs for even better performance and get rid of the crippled Windows 7 Starter for Home Premium or better. Who wants an OS on a Netbook without dual-monitor support and no ability to change desktop backgrond? pff...

+1 on upgrading the RAM to 2GB and also on upgrading the OS to Windows 7 Home Premium.
The s10-3t is pretty snappy (certainly so with powerpoint as mentioned above), however when you begin to run a few things at once it tends to lag slightly. 2GB is a must.

Will do. Should I ask for the memory upgrade before it leaves Lenovo or can I pick that up anywhere? Pretty sure someone else asked the same question earlier. I searched the Lenovo site, and no RAM for the s10-3t.

Still happy with the Pogo Sketch? Any issues with the tip compressing or bending too much? I'm a little concerned that I'll end up damaging the screen based on reviews and videos that I've seen of this (and similar) products.
Anyone have any idea if Lenovo is planning on releasing a stylus to use with this?

Using the pogo sketch is the only way to get a mediocre inking experience out of the s10-3t, seeing as writing with your finger is awkward. In this sense, I'm happy with it. I'm not sure however that inking will ever be more than mediocre on a capacitive multitouch screen. This wasnt a dealbreaker for me though since I didnt buy it for inking, and when i do use it, the pogo sketch makes it usable. Hope this helps.

I use a touchpensys zero II stylus which i initially got for my iphone. it's usable with the 3t but there are lags when drawing maybe because of my installed screen protector. if you need a lot of fine drawing or inking i guess this is where capacitive and resistive screens differ. note taking with resistive is faster and possible with stylus but since capacitive needs more screen contact then stylus use is a bit restrictive.
we have another discussion group at this link Lenovo S10-3t best buy!!! and there's a member, ELCamino who may post videos of multitouch capabilities of the 3t. he upgraded his machine to 2GB RAM and has win7 ultimate. maybe with an OS upgrade, inking is easier and more responsive.

hi I just got this laptop today.. my wireless is not broadcom but instead it's atheros ar9285 bgn. doesn't come with stylus and has multitouch 2 input screen.. but it came with win 7 start so I'm going to put ultimate on it for the touch stuff

hello, has anybody tried these 3g modems if they will work with s10-3t? I've seen an unlocked Huawei EM770 3g modem on ebay. It's not that cheap so I'm hesitant to buy it.
