Last year, Lenovo introduced to list two new ultra-compact notebook models , heirs of previous netbook , which resumed form factor and configuration, updating, however, with the introduction of Cedar View Atom or AMD APU and its renowned professional keyboards and AccuType offering a more careful implementation. Today, an advertisement appeared in Hungary and immediately taken up by colleagues Tech2 reveals what will likely be the heir of these notebooks, namely the Lenovo IdeaPad S210. At the moment we have only the few details revealed by the announcement but they are sufficient to describe in broad terms the news , which seem substantial. First, from the point of view of construction, any reference to the netbook has now disappeared . A look at the only photo available is realized in fact a type design full flat much more elegant and less cheap-looking , with a clean and sleek piano keyboard, which features only the chiclet style keyboard and touchpad with separate buttons below .
The body then it will be thinner and lighter than before , with a thickness of 20.9 mm and a weight of 1.3 kg, which bring this to an ultrabook IdeaPad S210 http://minilaptopindia.com/lenovo/ideapad-s210/ more, at least outwardly. The display should have a diagonal of 11.6 inches and a HD resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and between the doors should be included USB 2.0 and 3.0, SD slot, audio jacks and HDMI digital video output, while the hardware configuration provides for up to 8 GB RAM, disks with a capacity of 1 TB and Intel processors of various types from budget Celeron dual core processors up to Core i5 belonging to the second or third generation (Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge). In short, more than a netbook is an ultraportable similar economic logic as to ‘ Asus Vivobook S500E. Does not appear that there will be solutions Haswell but even a simple Celeron would already be able to offer much higher performance to that of an Atom, not to mention a Core i5 Ivy Bridge paired with 8 GB of RAM. The choice, therefore, was made to offer both a price and performance , however, high-level in a compact notebook that is farther and farther away from the classic netbook and more and more like instead to an ultrabook economic or at least a thin & light low end. At the moment there are no news regarding cost and date of onset, in all probability must therefore wait a few more weeks.
