Futuremark PCMark Vantage
We ran the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t through Futuremark’s latest system performance metric, PCMark Vantage. This benchmark suite creates a host of different usage scenarios to simulate different types of workloads including High Definition TV and movie playback and manipulation, gaming, image editing and manipulation, music compression, communications, and productivity. We like the fact that most of the tests are multi-threaded as well, in order to exploit the additional resources offered by multi-core processors.
Pay close attention to the scores of the IdeaPad S10-3t in comparison to the Wind U135; those machines are very similar, with the Wind having a slightly slower Atom and Windows 7 Starter instead of Windows 7 Home Premium. You'll again notice very small bumps in performance. The increases are real, but they aren't exactly Earth-shattering. More importantly, we can't really feel the extra horsepower in daily use, and for a machine that costs hundreds more than the U135 (granted, with a touch panel), we simply expected more.
