Lenovo has just announced two new systems that run on Intel’s 2nd-gen Atom platforms highlighted by the IdeaPad S10-3s, a 10-inch netbook that features a slim profile that measures under an inch thick (0.63 inches to be exact).
Most likely counted as one of the slimmest netbooks ever, the IdeaPad S10-3s is designed with rounded chiclet keys, plus a trackpad that extends down to the edge to give it a MacBook-looking buttonless trackpad design. The spec can be customized with either a 1.66GHz or 1.83GHz Atom processor, optional 3G modem, and storage options that includes hard drives from 160GB to 320GB, or SSD drives that range from 16GB to 32GBs.
Shipping this month, the IdeaPad’s price starts out at $380 and comes installed with a Windows 7 Home Starter or Home Basic OS plus a Linux quick-boot app.
The C200 nettop is a compact all-in-one built around an 18.5-inch touchscreen display. The system is built around an Atom processor (with a choice between a 1.6GHz D410 or a faster 1.66GHz D510) and Nvidia’s Ion platform that can handle HD-quality graphics. The nettop’s spec includes an integrated side-loading DVD burner, plus more options for fitting up to 4GBs of memory and up to 500GBs of storage.
