Lenovo upgrades Idea PCs for Windows 7

Lenovo today sparked life in its IdeaCentre desktops and IdeaPad notebooks by refreshing them for Windows 7 and adding a few completely new models. The IdeaCentre B500 is one of the few all-in-one PCs built for gamers and high-end media use with both a Core 2 Quad, unnamed but dedicated graphics and a built-in JBL speaker system. It also brings a 23-inch 1080p display, 1TB of disk space and a motion remote for an unspecified price.

The IdeaPad Y550P in turn is one of Lenovo's fastest notebooks through its use of a Core i7 quad-core processor at its heart. Most details aren't provided for the 15.6-inch notebook, but it will also have dedicated NVIDIA video and virtual surround.

Also in portables, the IdeaPad U550 is new and takes the concepts of ultraportables to the same 15.6-inch screen as the Y550P. Although it uses a more modest Core 2 Duo, it measures 0.94 inches thick while still including a DVD burner. The CULV-based U150 is now reaching the US with an 11.6-inch LCD, a 1.2GHz Core 2 Duo and a 250GB hard drive, while the U350 and S10-2 have been given both Microsoft's new operating system as well as new organic lid patterns, such as brown leather on the U350 or pseudo-modern floral textures on the S10-2.

Rounding out desktops, the IdeaCentre K300 sits high in Lenovo's range with Core 2 Quad chips, the option of drives in RAID arrays and a unique hardware power toggle to throttle back the system and save energy. While the former's price is unknown, the H230 is tailored to a budget audience with a $299 entry point.

All of the systems should be available soon if not immediately with more detailed configurations to come.
