Lenovo was showing off its new C200 All-in-One PC at CeBIT earlier this year, but has now officially unveiled the system in the American market at prices starting at $399. The C200 will be available in a variety of configurations, with up to an Intel Atom Dual Core D510 processor and Nvidia Ion 2 graphics…meaning the system may not be able to keep up with gaming rigs, but it should offer considerably better computing and media performance than a typical Atom-based desktop system.
The base model C200 starts with a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor and Intel integrated graphics, but users can elect to step up to the Atom D510 processor, Nvidia Ion 2 graphics, a touchscreen (no multitouch), 4 GB of RAM, and a 500 GB hard drive. The C200 also features an integrated “High-Sense” webcam (which Lenovo says has a larger lens for better performance in low-light environments), along with an integrated CD/DVD reader/writer. Lenovo is also packing the C200 with its Lenovo Rescue System, so users can easily back up and restore important data. The C200 should be available this month.
Lenovo has also taken the wraps off its new IdeaPad S10-3s lightweight netbook, billing it as a “stylist Internet companion.” The S10-3s features either an Intel Atom N470 and N450 processor and a 98 percent full-size chiclet keyboard…although Lenovo isn’t divulging details like available RAM and storage. However, the S10-3s will offer MapLife location-based mapping (that can show local points of interest based on a users’s Wi-Fi location), and the netbook will feature Lenovo’s Active Protection System and Veriface facial recognition technology. The system will also be available with 802.11n, WWAN, and 3G options—and the “stylish” part is that it’ll be available in black, white, or a “spring flowers” motif. Expect to see it mid-month at prices starting at $379.
