Lenovo is refreshing the lower end of its consumer lineup today with an updated version of its S10 netbook and the new C200
all-in-one desktop computer. The first is a rehashed version of the IdeaPad S10-3, dubbed S10-3s, featuring the same 10.1-inch screen in a sleeker form factor that's just 16mm at its thinnest point.
Specs-wise, buyers can choose from either an Intel Atom N470 or N450 processor, up to 2GB DDR2 DRAM 533MHz, a 160/250/320GB HDD or 16/32GB SSD drive and the usual array of connectivity features like Bluetooth, Ethernet, Wi-Fi and 3G. Lenovo also improved the upon the system's keyboard with a 98% full-size 'chiclet style' keys setup. The IdeaPad S10-3s will be available mid-April in black, white and a “spring flowers” design starting at $380.
Aside from the refreshed IdeaPad netbook, The Lenovo C200 all-in-one will also start shipping later this month featuring a 18.5-inch screen with a native resolution of 1,366x768. The starting price of $399 will get you a 1.6GHz Atom D410, 160GB of storage, no touch screen, Intel's integrated graphics and a DVD burner. But of course, you'll be able to ramp up those specs a little bit with an optional Intel Atom D510 dual-core processor, Nvidia Ion graphics with Optimus technology, up to 500GB of storage and 4GB of DDR2 memory. All models come with a wireless keyboard and mouse.
