Lenovo working on 12-inch Atom netbook

Posted on Monday, February 16 2009 @ 18:21:55 CET by


Intel tires to prevent netbook makers to use the Atom in systems with a display larger than 10.2", but according to DigiTimes these restrictions will be ignored by Lenovo as the upcoming IdeaPad S20 will be a 12" netbook with the Intel Atom N280 processor. The consequence of this is Lenovo will lose out on preferential pricing for the N280 chip, which will increase costs by around $10.
As a consequence for breaking the restrictions, Lenovo will lose out on preferential pricing for the N280 processor, and would end up having to buy at Intel's officially announced price, which is around US$10 higher than typical quotes to vendors of Lenovo's size, the sources noted.

The sources commented that Lenovo hopes the decision will help boost its netbook sales by avoiding the fierce competition in the 10-inch segment. The IdeaPad S20 netbook with an Atom N280 processor and GN40 chipset, and Windows XP will be priced at around NT$20,000 (US$586), the sources detailed.
