Lenovo's New IdeaPad S110 "Mini Netbook"

Lenovo IdeaPad S110Even though Lenovo's IdeaPad S110 netbook, the one complete with the Intel Atom Cedar Trail processor, has yet to be officially announced, Lenovo has still gone ahead and released a promotional video for the 10.1" laptop. Aside from the video, tech site Pro Vantage already lists the S110 206932U model complete with the Atom N2600, 1GB of RAM, 320GB HDD and Windows 7 Starter for $321 which means an "official" announcement is right around the corner.

According to Lenovo's video, the IdeaPad S110 is .62" thick and weighs in at 2.5lbs with a redesigned chassis that differs from Lenovo's standard design. The 10.1" screen is advertised as being HD and the device itself comes with a 98% full-sized keyboard with AccuType curved keys. As far as connectivity goes, the video shows USB 3.0 but nothing else. You'll have to wait for the official announcement to get every detail. The video also pointed out an optional 2MP webcam as well as WiFi and 3G connectivity.

The device will ship in a plethora of colors and so far black, white, red and blue S110 devices were shown in the video. Aside from the Windows 7 OS, the S110 also has instant-on OS for quick access to the internet without having to boot from the main operating system.

One interesting thing to point out is that the company avoids calling the IdeaPad S110 a netbook. Instead, Lenovo calls it a "mini netbook". Maybe the company thinks that netbooks get negative reviews thanks to their low performance? Regardless, a small, 10.1" laptop with an Atom CPU is usually considered a netbook, so the fact that Lenovo calls it a "mini netbook" won't really change things in the eyes of the tech world.

No word on an official release date but you can be sure there will be one soon. Keep checking back for more updates on the Lenovo IdeaPad S110 as well as everything else in the mobile tech world.

Short-throw projectors only require half the projection distance of traditional projectors. The projector can be placed just a foot or so from the screen. This is nice because it keeps the projector and screen near each other instead of having a long throw projector that people can accidentally block.
