Check out our most recent IdeaPad S10-3 Review to understand the amazing updates that are being added to this outstanding Lenovo netbook.
The Intel Atom Processor Upgraded to Dual Core
The new Intel Atom N550, still sports the low profile that makes it a viable netbook processor, but it now incorporates dual-core technology to allow for more effective use of high-powered applications and games that use Flash and other animation technologies. The new chip should also provide better on-the-go Internet access than the single-core Atom processor.
Not only will the processor allow more power, but the Intel Atom N550 uses DDR3 memory rather than the DDR2 of the single-core version, meaning that you’ll immediately see smoother transitions between graphics and less loading time.
The IdeaPad S10-3 Remains an Incredible Netbook
The IdeaPad S10-3 will feature the same options as the current version, including the popular tablet display, which should greatly benefit from the incorporation of a bit more processing power. It will likely still incorporate Intel’s Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 graphics card, the 10.1-inch display, a 250GB hard drive, integrated wireless and Ethernet, an integrated webcam, and a six-cell battery, Bluetooth, and a 5-in-1 media card reader. There will also be an option for up to 2GB of RAM. The whole thing will likely be powered by Windows 7, which of course, has been optimized with the creation of the Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced User Experience.
New Lenovo S10-3 Rumors
The new Lenovo S10-3 has yet to be released, but in Australia, the company is already taking pre-orders, so it’s only a matter of time before the same happens in the United States. If the Australian release is any indication, then it’s likely that we’ll see the new S10-3 by mid-autumn.
There’s no word yet on price, but it will probably be on par with the current price for the single-core IdeaPad S10-3.
