Lenovo IdeaPad S12 with Ion, Windows 7 up for sale

Lenovo S12 Ion upgrade on sale

After a significant delay past its original summer goal, Lenovo on Wednesday began selling a version of its IdeaPad S12 netbook with NVIDIA's Ion graphics onboard. The upgrade comes in tandem with Windows 7 Home Premium and gives it enough visual power to support the full Aero Glass interface as well as to decode 1080p video and handle some more recent 3D. Lenovo also adds Bluetooth 2.1 for wireless peripherals.

Choosing the Ion-equipped S12 costs at least $599 on sale but also doubles the amount of RAM to 2GB and brings a larger 250GB hard drive. A second configuration at $650 steps up to 3GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive. Both have the same 1.6GHz Atom, 1280x800 display resolution and six-cell battery as more frugal models.

The new IdeaPads ship in as little as two days.
