It’s interesting to note that they are calling it the “Lenovo S110 mini notebook”, rather than using the “netbook” term. We feel that Lenovo might want to move away from the netbook name as many people associate them with slow machines, where as the new S110 mini-notebook makes use of the new faster and efficient Intel Atom 2600 processor on the Cedar Trail platform.
In the promo video Lenovo are trying to give it the cool factor by showing its use in a “rock star” kind of situation. From the promo video and website we know that the 10.1-inch machine has a “HD Display” we can only assume that’s a 720p resolution, but Intel have said that the N2600 does support the full 1080P resolution. We’re sure that Lenovo will bring the Ideapad S110 with them to CES 2012 next week, where they will spill the full details.
The Lenovo Ideapad S110 also features an optional 2 megapixel webcam, and optional 3G. Other features include USB 3.0 (10x faster than USB 2.0), a 98% full sized chiclet keyboard, and instant on feature.
Pro Vantage website are already listing a Lenovo S110 206932U model with 1GB RAM, 320GB hard drive, Windows 7 Starter and the new Intel Atom N2600 for just $321. So we’re sure we can expect an official press release or tour at CES next week.
