This October 22nd might be a great day for gadget lovers. Many of the new gadget will be released on that day, especially those with Built-in Windows 7 OS. As true as Lenovo IdeaPad S12 netbook, which were first introduced in May. The netbook will enter to the market on October 22th, exactly the date of the appearance of Windows 7 OS. However, it’s not globally, Lenovo set it to release on Japan first before going west.
The specification of Lenovo IdeaPad S12 netbook that will appear in Japan carrying the specs of the following:
- Intel Atom N270 1.6Ghz CPU
- 2GB of RAM
- NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphic card
- 12.1-inch screen with 1,280 x 800 pixels resolution
- 250GB HDD, WiFI, Bluetooth, HDMI, USB ports, and card reader
So there is no NVIDIA ION on this version? Well, yes. It seems Lenovo is dropping the ION chipset and as an exchange, they stuffed in the GeForce 9400M GPU into the netbook. I’m not sure why, but I don’t care as long as it can help me play some 3D games .:)
Lenovo IdeaPad S12 will carry the price tag of $760 in Japan’s market. No idea when it will hit America.
