Lenovo intros third-gen netbook

Gets latest Atom

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

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.

Lenovo's IdeaPad S10-3: latest Atom on board

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. ®
