has announced a VIA-based version of its 12-inch IdeaPad S12
netbook, but at the moment it's unclear whether it will be distributed
in European and North American markets.
The Nano U2250 powered S12 with 2GB of memory should end up some 25
percent cheaper than the Intel-based version without an OS. This sounds
like a pretty fair deal, as the Nano U2250 is a decent CPU and the rest
of the spec will probably remain unchanged.
Lenovo will also introduce an Nvidia ION-based S12 soon after Microsoft launches Windows 7.
