Lenovo Ideapad S12 IONLenovo is finally set to launch its ION-powered Ideapad S12 netbook this week, well at least in Japan anyway. The 12.1-inch (1280 x 800) netbook was initially announced in late May in various forms (Intel, VIA and ION). The first two SKUS are already out whilst the ION version was delayed until the launch of Windows 7.

As promised, Lenovo Japan is set to launch the Ideapad S12 ION with Windows 7 Home Premium on October 22nd (Windows 7 launch day) for 68,800 Yen. Availability in other regions is expected shortly.

The Ideapad S12 ION partners a 1.6GHz N270 Atom CPU with the Nvidia 9400M GPU. The model includes 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi (b/g), 1.3MP webcam, three USB ports, 4-in-1 card reader, HDMI-out and a 6-cell battery good for 6 hours.

    Imo, a 12in netbook is in the netbook world, what the 19in notebook is in the notebook world- having owned a 11.6in netbook already. An 11.6in is like a 15.4in, but that’s fine with me.

    I get your point nuke1. I too believe that the screen size should be restricted to 10.2″ max for a netbook , but the screen sizes keep creeping further. Its getting blurry :)

    . I ordered one of those from Amazon as well and it works great in the pyaelr. One problem I did have initially is that the light on the pyaelr doesn’t work like the directions say. The directions said that the light should be red while charging and change to green. That never happened. I left it plugged in and charging all night and it never did turn green. I did notice that the red light blinks and while it was plugged in the blinking got slower and slower until it was a solid red light in the morning. It would be nice if the directions were correct. I didn’t have any problems with transfer speed, of course I just plugged the micro SD card into an adapter and plugged it into the SD card slot on my computer so I didn’t expect any problems. I’m sure transfer speeds may have been slower if I had used the USB cord. So far I like it and the only problem I have is that I seem to have misplaced it somewhere in my house. The thing is just so small! I don’t know where I had it last. I’m sure I will find it soon. I’m actually thinking of getting my sister one for her birthday because she keeps wanting the Ipod Shuffle and this in my opinion seems to be just as good for a MUCH BETTER PRICE!Help other customers find the most helpful reviewsa0 Was this review helpful to you?a0 | a0Comment (1)

    I was so confused about what to buy, but this makes it understandable.
