Lenovo netbook in Sept.?

Chinese computer maker Lenovo has confirmed its interest in the world of netbooks like the Eee PC, a report indicates. Ken Wong, Lenovo Taiwan's general manager, says the company is currently contemplating a netbook that if released, would be aimed at both public and corporate buyers. Sources at ODM builders are meanwhile claiming that the Lenovo system should ship by the end of September 2008, though no prices or specifications are available.

The computer could be the rumored, miniature version of the IdeaPad, which would likely use Intel's low-voltage Atom processor. Like the Eee PC the machine could also have the option of Linux as an operating system, a choice Lenovo has offered in the past.
