Lenovo rolled out the IdeaPad S10-3s, this netbook has pretty much the same specifications as the previous model but has a much slimmer enclosure. The system has a 16mm profile and features the Intel Atom N450/470 processor, 1GB memory, and a HDD with a capacity of up to 320GB.
The system should be available next week with a base price of $379.99.
With its slim 16mm profile and light weight design, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3s is the perfect netbook for consumers who are always on-the-go and want an immediate web browsing experience. This chic internet companion comes with the new Intel® Atom N470 or N450 processor and is available in black, white or a "spring flowers" cover pattern to suit your individual style. The S10-3s offers a familiar typing experience similar to a full size laptop with its 98% full-size chiclet keyboard, with individually-spaced and rounded keys that make typing comfortable and easy. Users can now get on the web even faster with Quick Start, which enables access to a range of applications, multimedia files, and Web browsing without booting to the Windows™ desktop operating system.
Packed with neat surprises, the S10-3s comes with Dolby® Headphone audio that helps bring music and videos to life, while DirectShare allows users to instantly sync their files wirelessly with any other type and brand of computer, without even connecting to the web. With MapLife location-based mapping, users can discover new places that could create life's next exciting moment. By detecting a user's location from a simple Wi-Fi connection, MapLife will use context-based mapping to display nearby points of interest.
The S10-3s also features Active Protection System (APS) – a feature previously found only on Lenovo's premium ThinkPad and IdeaPad laptops, but now fitted as standard across the S10-3 netbook range. And with VeriFace™ face recognition technology and OneKey™ Rescue System data recovery and anti-virus tools, the S10-3s is packed with features that make computing more fun and convenient. Like all 3rd generation Lenovo netbooks, users can choose from a suite of wireless options like 802.11b/g/n, WWAN, 3G and Bluetooth®.
