Lenovo has unveiled a trio of new IdeaPad S Series notebooks and IdeaTab tablets as part of their IFA showcase in Berlin this week. The S Series IdeaPad line represents Lenovo’s commitment to mainstream performance in an affordable, thin and light design. The S300 includes a 13.3-inch display while the S400 ships with a slightly larger 14-inch screen – no word on how large the S405’s panel is but we assume 14-inch as well. Users will be able to select three different color schemes with the new S Series IdeaPads: cotton-candy pink, crimson red or graphite grey.
All systems are less than 22mm thick, or just out of Ultrabook range for a 14-inch portable. There’s up to five hours of battery life on tap. Lenovo is pairing these mainstream systems with your choice of an Intel Pentium, Core i3 or Core i5 ULV processor. We’re told that the S405 will also have the option of an AMD A8 processor. Pricing starts at $499 for Lenovo’s new S Series IdeaPads.
Lenovo has the tablet market covered as well with the introduction of the IdeaTab A2107, A2109 and S2110. The budget-minded A2107 is a 7-inch slate with a 1,024 x 600 resolution display powered by a Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.0GHz. There’s up to 16GB of onboard storage, a rear 2-megapixel camera and up to 10 hours of battery life available. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will power the A2107 at launch.
The A2109 ups the ante with a 9-inch LED display running at 1,280 x 800, a quad-core Tegra 3 processor churning along at 1.2GHz, 1GB of DDR3 RAM, up to 16GB of storage, a 3-megapixel rear camera and up to eight hours of battery life. Android 4.0 will also ship standard with this slate.
Finally, Lenovo’s IdeaTab S2110 is a 10.1-inch slate with a 1,280 x 800 IPS display powered by a Qualcomm dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 1GB of DDR2 memory, a maximum of 32GB of onboard storage, a 5-megapixel rear camera and up to 10 hours of battery life (20 hours with the optional keyboard dock).
Pricing and availability wasn’t made available to us as the time of publication. We will update the story with this information as it becomes available.
