GN40 chipset and Atom N280
According to Digitimes, Lenovo is busy working on a 12in netbook which should go under the name of IdeaPad S20 and it should feature the "new off roadmap" Intel Atom N280 processor and GN40 chipset.
Little else is known about the IdeaPad S20, but as Lenovo isn't following Intel's guidelines for netbooks, it looks like this 12in machine might have the potential of getting some additional features that you wouldn't normally find in a netbook.
Digitimes is suggesting that the IdeaPad S20 should retail for about €460 (£414/$586) which seems quite reasonable considering that the same article states that Lenovo would have to pay extra for the CPUs just because they're not adhering to the Intel guidelines.
