The Lenovo IdeaPad S12 with NVIDIA’s ION chipset may be on hold until this fall. But you can already pre-order the S12 with either an Intel Atom or VIA Nano CPU. The company added the Nano option to its web site yesterday.
The Nano version will sell for $50 less than the Intel Atom powered version, at $449. It ships with a 1.3GHz VIA Nano ULV 2250 CPU, Integrated VIA Chrome9 HC3 graphics, 1GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive. Like the Atom version, it runs Windows XP Home Edition, has a 12.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, and 6 cell battery.
The Lenovo Idepad S12 is available for order now, but isn’t expected to ship for at least a month or so.
