Lenovo's EeePC killer

By   |  August 5, 2008

Lenovo, maker of the popular ThinkPad range of notebook PCs, today announced its IdeaPad S9 and S10. The release marks Lenovo’s first foray into the fast-growing netbook market.

The IdeaPad S9 sports an 8.9 inch screen, 802.11g Wi-Fi, 512MB of memory and a choice of either 4GB solid state storage or 80GB hard disk. Although the IdeaPad will initially ship with Windows XP, a number of sources report that a Linpus Linux version will also be released.

The lightweight contender from Lenovo will be based on a 1.6GHz Intel Atom chip.

The S10 version of the IdeaPad will also include an Express Card slot, as well as the built-in 802.11g Wi-Fi, for connectivity. In comparison, the Asus 1000 series includes 802.11n support as well as the fast-booting facility that gets the Asus working within seconds. The IdeaPad is built around similar hardware to the Asus 1000 range but lacks on these two areas.

The IdeaPad will be available from October internationally and will cost around $399 (beginning in early October, and prices start at $399 (around R2 800).

    I was planning to buy EeePC but this “Lenovo’s EeePC killer ” is making me think twice to wait or not to……seems great at that low cost.

    Why isn’t everybody using Wi-Fi “n”? I think the Eee 1000 is the only netbook offering it.

    I don’t know about everyone else but I don’t use it because I don’t know any WI-FI hotspots in Jozi. OH and I don’t have any Device that could use them…

    Wait for Dell’s E netbook
    also great specs.
    And Acer’s Aspire One is brilliant, comes with a Linux OS. boot in 10 secs.
    and runs ubuntu in all its compiz-fusion glory. and has almost full-size keyboard

    hello netbooks :-)

    I’ve seen the Acer Aspire One. It does look good. The problem with the 701 EEE PC is the too-smll keyboard and the small screen. It’s just a little too dinky for my liking.
