The Asus Eee series is sure going to face a tough competition. Lenovo’s about to jump into the netbook market with not one but two new devices: the IdeaPad S9, which packs an 8.9-inch screen, and the IdeaPad S10, which packs a 10.1-inch screen. The netbooks are approximately one inch thin and weigh just over two pounds. The keyboard size will be 85 percent the size of a full-function notebook PC’s keyboard, and longer battery life will be provided by using energy-efficient LED back-lit display.
The netbooks will use Intel’s Atom processor and will come with either 512MB or 1GB of RAM and either a 80 GB or a 160GB hard drive drive. They will come with Windows XP or Linux preloaded. It will also feature Wi-fi and optional Bluetooth connectivity and also have an Express Card slot so users can enable the netbook for optional high speed mobile broadband connectivity. They will have a built-in web camera, two USB ports and a 4-in-1 multicard reader for transferring of digital data like music and videos.. The heat emitted by areas such as bottom of PC, palm rest will also be reduced. It will have Lenovo’s OneKey Rescue System which claims to help users recover data should a system error or virus occur.
All these devices will be available in a variety of colors including red, white, black, blue and pink. It will be available in September for the price of Rs 15000 for S9 model and Rs 17,000 for S10 model. There is definitely going to be a great demand for netbook PCs in the future as they are cheap, have good functionality and can even serve as a backup PC.
