    Lenovo today unveiled two new consumer PCs that keep users entertained wherever life takes them. Lenovo’s newest all-in-one, the C200 with optional NVIDIA ION graphics, and the IdeaPad S10-3s with its slim profile and new colors and patterns, offer consumers sleek form factors and a variety of features to help enjoyably pursue all their computing needs.

    “Our new S-series netbook and C-series all-in-one PCs are stylish in design but offer a relaxing computing experience that all consumers can appreciate,” said Dion Weisler, vice president, Business Operations, Lenovo. “Whether you are looking for a family PC for your living room or one for your travels, Lenovo PCs are designed to make computing more fun and intuitive."

    Lenovo C200- Reshaping the Home Computing Experience
    Sporting an 18.5 inch HD 16:9 widescreen display, up to NVIDIA ION 256MB graphics processor for high definition video support, and an optional single-touch touchscreen panel, the C200 is an affordable and fun family PC with a sleek, compact design. This all-in-one computer, available with up to Intel Atom Dual Core processor D510, and complete with an integrated DVD reader/writer, is the ideal PC for any room in the home. For improved video chat communications, the C200 features integrated stereo speakers and the Lenovo High-Sense Webcam, which boasts a larger lens and finer color and shading sensitivity to create clearer images and greater contrast, especially in low-light environments.

    “The Lenovo C200 with NVIDIA ION is an ideal way to meet the ‘info-tainment’ needs of today’s digital family. Its snappy graphics and big screen are perfect for accessing the Internet, sharing family photos, playing casual games together, or enjoying the latest online videos in high definition,” said David Ragones, director of ION and GeForce product marketing, NVIDIA.

    The C200 is equipped with the Lenovo Rescue System – a quick and easy solution to back up and restore important data files. With the touch of a button users can easily restore their lost data, allowing consumers to enjoy a worry-free computing experience.

    IdeaPad S10-3s- Stylish Internet Companion
    With its slim 16mm profile and light weight design, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3s is the perfect netbook for consumers who are always on-the-go and want an immediate web browsing experience. This chic internet companion comes with the new Intel Atom N470 or N450 processor and is available in black, white or a “spring flowers” cover pattern to suit your individual style. The S10-3s offers a familiar typing experience similar to a full size laptop with its 98% full-size chiclet keyboard, with individually-spaced and rounded keys that make typing comfortable and easy. Users can now get on the web even faster with Quick Start, which enables access to a range of applications, multimedia files, and Web browsing without booting to the Windows desktop operating system.

    Packed with neat surprises, the S10-3s comes with Dolby Headphone audio that helps bring music and videos to life, while DirectShare allows users to instantly sync their files wirelessly with any other type and brand of computer, without even connecting to the web. With MapLife location-based mapping, users can discover new places that could create life’s next exciting moment. By detecting a user’s location from a simple Wi-Fi connection, MapLife will use context-based mapping to display nearby points of interest.

    The S10-3s also features Active Protection System (APS) – a feature previously found only on Lenovo’s premium ThinkPad and IdeaPad laptops, but now fitted as standard across the S10-3 netbook range. And with VeriFace face recognition technology and OneKey Rescue System data recovery and anti-virus tools, the S10-3s is packed with features that make computing more fun and convenient. Like all 3rd generation Lenovo netbooks, users can choose from a suite of wireless options like 802.11b/g/n, WWAN, 3G and Bluetooth.

    Pricing and Availability
    The Lenovo C200 all-in-one desktop is available beginning in April on Lenovo.com and through select retailers and will start at $399. The IdeaPad S10-3s is available beginning in mid-April on Lenovo.com and will start at $379.99.

    * Sounds like they wanted to name it ipad but would get taken to court by apple

    * both woefully underpowerd but still a step forward as they are more energy efficient then previous N series processors - get them while they last as Intel are temporarily ceasing production.

    i was thinking more console with more options although i bet the PS3 is less hassle and that plays games too. Bad thing is the PS3 slim takes 90w min and not as portable :(.

    Those lights on the front are the same as the DELLS INSPIRON and like how they all so added the rubber around the edges of the screen.

    When does a laptop and a notepad stop being what they called them ?.

    firstly - Price. netbooks are priced roughly around £200-380 (or £400 even for the more expensive)

    secondly - Size & Weight netbooks are usualy between 7-13" (13" is really close to being classed 'sub laptop') netbooks roughly around 1.2kg - but thats more dependant on netbook itself, its manufacturers & their choice of hardware/materials used to build the laptio

    3rdly - Hardware, in intels case 'ULV's (Ultra Low Voltage) or 'Atom's which come in 'N' or 'D' series's - the 'D' series is new. they all run around the same clock speeds generally (1.66Ghz) paired up with slow 5400rpm hard drives & shoddy intel graphics (GMA 3150 etc etc)

    & the battry life lasts in excess of 6hrs (or 8hrs dependant on the hardware & if your lucky) on one charge - a laptop is usually dead in less then 2hrs.
