As it seems every PC manufacturer has to create a small computer to compete with Asus’ Eee PC, Lenovo has announced it is to launch the Ideapad S10 netbook.
Initial specs suggest it will sport a 10 inch backlit LED screen, 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, Windows XP, 512MB or 1GB of RAM, and 80GB or 160GB hard drive. A Linux version could be made available to non-US markets.
Other features include a 1.3 megapixel web camera, stereo speakers, multi-touch pad, 85% of full size keyboard, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Ethernet, ExpressCard slot, card reader, and up to 2GB RAM.
Do we need another small form factor PC? Probably not, especially with the onslaught of Eee, but that doesn’t seem to be stopping anyone.
Priced from US$399, with more details as soon as Lenovo chooses to announce them.
