AFAIK the "s" in "X<NN>s" means that the system uses some lower-power
components (mostly the CPU).  This means more autonomy, less heat, and
less noise on the positive side.  I don't think it makes the machines
slimmer nor lighter.  It does tend to imply a lower max-frequency, OTOH
(and IIRC also a slightly higher price).
