Lenovo IdeaPad S12 Ion-Powered Netbook Now Available Stateside

Lenovo IdeaPad S12 Ion-Powered Netbook

Lenovo have finally begun shipping their new 12-inch NVIDIA ION-powered S12 Netbook in the U.S. for $599. The much-anticipated S12 was supposed to be the first ION-packing netbook out the gates, but was postponed till after the launch of Windows 7 last week.

Equipped with a 12.1-inch 1280 x 800 WXGA display, the S12 delivers a pinch more screen real estate than HP’s Ion-powered Mini 311 and includes a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, 2GB of DDR2 RAM, a 250GB HDD, b/g WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1.

The S12 can play back Full HD 1080p video and includes a full-size keyboard, a 1.3MP webcam, a 4-in-1 card reader, 3 x USB ports, HDMI-out, a 6-cell battery and of course the new Windows 7 (Home Premium) OS.

Lenovo’s IdeaPad S12 weighs in at 3-pounds and is available now (in black) direct from Lenovo for $599.

Update: Lenovo have added a second Ion-equipped S12 model for $649 that bumps memory to 3GB and storage to 320GB.

Wow $600 laptop that runs windows 7 with speed? Nice. Now only if the recession would end.

Does this netbook come with the slightly crippled LE version of the Ion chipset or does it have DirectX 10 support?

@Portugal
I believe it includes the full ION chipset. There has been no mention of it being the LE version.

I was under the impression that if the netbook/nettop has a full version of windows 7, then the ion would be the full chipset, not the LE edition.

Everything Good but Processor is atom Processor…
that not be acceptable
