Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3?

In the two days since Intel launched its new Pine Trail platform, Lenovo’s been pretty quiet. Half a dozen other companies have introduced or leaked details about upcoming models that will use the next-generation Atom processor. But while Lenovo hasn’t made any announcements in the US or Europe yet, a Lenovo representative in Asia says the company has two new 10 inch models on the way.

The new laptops will be called the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3 and S10-3t. The S10-3t will reportedly feature a touchscreen display that can be rotated and used in tablet mode. The S10-3 will be the third generation 10 inch laptop from Lenovo, (following the IdeaPad S10 and S10-2).

Both models will have full sized keyboards and run Windows 7. GPS and 3G mobile broadband options will be available.

As jkkmobile points out, there’s a good chance we’ve already seen some photos of the upcoming IdeaPad S10-3, courtesy of the FCC.

  1. Explain to me how the Pine Trail CPU will create a new generation of netbooks? It seems to only improve power consumption which is good but by no means worth all the hoopla surrounding it. Netbooks are already where they need to be and unless there’s is a significant increase in processing power you might as well purchase a Atom N270/N280 netbook if there still available.

    1. I completely agree. It really makes me worried (monopoly) when Intel can release a so called new processor which offers….nothing in terms of improvements. Don’t bother saying an increased battery life if worth $20 because the difference between 10 hours and 15 is meaningless to most people. I just hope this type of game by Intel can open up the door for some kind of competitor who can offer up something without being worried about their “other” products not selling. I really just can’t think of a time when after months, a new processor could come out and the “new” technology doesn’t do anything faster. Intel really has it easy right now and this Pinetrail rubbish is just the exclamation point. It’s a joke. I can’t wait for “pinetrail” to leave the headlines.

  2. As for me, CULV is the only way forward. The Atom, Pine Trail are all jokes.

    1. I agree completely. I think Intel is going to stretch this new platform thing for a while. I am hoping that the N470 part, which does have a clock speed increase to 1.83 GHz will give it a little jump in performance. So far it is just a transition part to prove that they can get the Atom to maintain performance and cut the power consumption a little bit.

  3. Well, at least Lenovo has sane naming policy. Too bad the design of original S10 was left behind, it was IMHO one of the finest-looking netbooks (I wouldn’t mind at all similar design being resurrected for “Thinkpad Mini”, just with clit this time)

    And yes, this is new generation. Pine Trail is a platform; compare it to the last…

    Yes, it has marginally faster CPU…I’m not complaining about its speed for such ultraportables; perhaps you should use more efficient software.

  4. Unfortunately this is what you’re gonna see when their is no competition in the market. It’s not exactly unfair to call the N450 the next-gen processor because it is going to irradiate the N270 and N280…creating a new generation of netbooks.

    HOWEVER, it’s pretty obvious Intel had no interest in advancing the processing power because they don’t need to. They can milk the market better by keeping the lines between netbook and CULV defined and force people to step up into the $500+ price bracket for a old gen C2D or a new gen CULV.

  5. I really have a hard time anyone calling this a next-generation processor. I really do think the Pinetrail is a bit of false advertising. It’s like saying hey, this is the latest netbook with the newest processor. Oh, and by the way it’s not any faster than the netbooks from mid 2009. Just friendly critique, I think “next-generation” shouldn’t be used in the same breath as this “new” Atom processor. It’s a joke imo.
