Lenovo Unveils IdeaPad S12 Netbook Powered by Nvidia's ION Graphics Processor


Lenovo today announced the IdeaPad S12, the company's first 12-inch netbook powered by the NVIDIA ION platform.

The Lenovo IdeaPad S12 netbook will be available in choices of the Intel Atom processor with Intel integrated graphics or the Intel Atom processor with NVIDIA ION graphics.

Also, for the first time on a netbook with NVIDIA's ION graphics platform, users will be able to enjoy brilliant 1080p high definition video with silky smooth playback. NVIDIA's Ion is a new chipset that aims to provide 1080p capabilities to low-cost machines. It's the same technology that launched in Acer's Aspire Revo nettop, and the same technology that recently shipped in a Zotac mainboard.



The IdeaPad S12 netbook offers up to six hours of battery life to support, WiFi and 3G connectivity. To hold the photos, music and videos users keep on their netbooks, the IdeaPad S12 netbook offers 160GB storage and 1 GB of memory. For peace of mind in case data becomes corrupted, Lenovo's OneKey Rescue System can help recover user data or device settings.

In addition to the netbook's sleek design in black or white, Lenovo's expanded VeriFace facial recognition technology makes logging in a snap by recognizing the user's face. If users want "on demand" functionality, they can go into the Lenovo Quick Start environment and check email, browse the Internet and more without waiting for the full operating system to boot. They can also don any set of headphones and enjoy surround sound audio with Dolby Headphone technology. If opting to watch video on an external monitor, they can connect through the netbook's VGA port or HDMI port on select models. They can also choose among several multimedia formats to upload through the 4-in-1 multicard reader.

Lenovo enlarged the netbook's WXGA screen from 10.1 inches to 12.1 inches for better viewing and made the keyboard 100 percent the size of a full-size laptop. And when it comes to portability, by measuring less than an inch thick, the netbook leads the industry for thinness compared to other 12-inch netbooks. The IdeaPad S12 netbook weighs in at just three pounds.

The IdeaPad S12 netbook will be available in June through business partners and www.lenovo.com. Pricing for models starts at $449. Models with the NVIDIA ION graphics will be available later this summer.
