To wait for Windows 7
We already wrote a lot about Lenovo's Ion-based S12 12.1-inch notebook, and according to new reports it looks like that we won't see one until October. The same report also adds that, in addition to the Ion-based S12, Lenovo will have two more models as well.
According to the report over at Gizmodo, the IdeaPad S12 will ship in October, as Lenovo wants to preload it with Microsoft's new OS that is also planed for the same month. The IdeaPad S12 comes with a 12.1-inch LED backlit display with a 1280x800 resolution, 1.6GHz Atom N270, Geforce 9400M IGP and 1GB of memory.
According to the report, in addition to this model, Lenovo will launch two more, one based on VIA Nano CPU and VIA chipset, and the second one should be based on plain Intel chipset that can be found in most of the similar netbooks.
The price for the Ion-based S12 model is expected to be somewhere around US $550. You can find more here.
