Lenovo intros third-gen netbook

Gets latest Atom

Lenovo has introduced the third generation of its IdeaPad S10 netbook. The new model brings Intel's latest Atom technology to the series.

The S10-3 incorporates Intel's 1.66GHz Atom N450 CPU - a processor that has an on-board graphics chip for greater energy efficiency.

So says Intel, though Reg Hardware's tests of N450-based netbooks like the Dell Mini 10 and the Acer Aspire One 532 show there's not a lot in it.

The S10-3 will feature 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and, on some versions, HSDPA 3G connectivity.

Other specs are netbook standard: three USB 2.0 ports, five-in-one memory card reader, Ethernet port and a VGA connector.

There's no official word yet on when the S10-3 will arrive over here, but we'd expect it to appear in the next month or so. ®
