Lenovo and Samsung delay ION-based netbooks until Windows 7 launch

Posted on Thursday, August 27 2009 @ 00:30:34 CEST by


Samsung and Lenovo have reportedly delayed the introduction of NVIDIA ION based netbooks until the launch of Windows 7. Previously is was expected that the Lenovo IdeaPad S12 and Samsung N510 would cost around $600, but with the more expensive Windows 7 operating system on these netbooks the price is likely to go even higher, making them a hard sell against low-end notebooks.
According to reports by Gizmodo and LaptopMag web-sites, Lenovo and Samsung have decided to delay the release of their IdeaPad S12 and N510 netbooks based on Intel Atom processor, Nvidia Ion core-logic with built-in graphics cores and 12.1” and 11” displays to late October, when Windows 7 is available. According to the companies, they want to enable better user experience with the new operating system.

But Microsoft does not want makers of netbooks with screens larger than 10.1” in diagonal to install entry-level Windows 7 Started into such personal computers. As a result, Lenovo and Samsung will have to install more expensive Windows 7 Home, which is likely to increase the prices of such machines.
