The Sidewinder is your starter ship. It is a small ship with limited cargo capacity - with only 10t cargo capacity it is the smallest ship. It has a decent jump range and speed. It is actually a fun little ship to fly around - however it is close to useless due to limited internal compartments and limited cargo capacity. It only mounts to small Class 1 weapons and have weak shields so it is not a great combat ship either.
As soon as you can afford it, you will probably want to upgrade to an Adder or Hauler; these ships come at an affordable price and has more cargo capacity = more profit. I recommend selling the Sidewinder and use the credits for upgrading your next ship.
However - don't rush into upgrading - use the Sidewinder while you get used to the game; if you die, you will get a new Sidewinder for free - you will however have to pay an insurance fee for any upgrades you have equipped.
