lenovo logo Lenovo gives us a sneak peek of its upcoming IdeaPad S110

If a teaser video posted by Lenovo on YouTube is anything to go by, Lenovo should be one of the first companies to launch a Cedar Trail-M netbook, although Lenovo seems to have ditched the term netbook in favour of "mini notebook". The IdeaPad S110 should feature the new Atom N2600 processor as well as a few other additions that most netbooks don't have.

The video gives away the fact that the IdeaPad S110 will come in a choice of red, blue, white or black. It has a 10.1-inch screen, but this is apparently an HD resolution screen, although by this we presume Lenovo means 1366×768 at the most. It also comes with an optional 720p webcam, USB 3.0 connectivity, Wi-Fi and optional 3G connectivity.

A few other features were also dug out thanks to some helpful online retailers that have already listed the IdeaPad S110 for sale and as such we know we can expect 1GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive as standard. A bit sting in our opinion especially considering how cheap RAM is these days, but typical for a netbook. Lenovo also claims that the IdeaPad S110 weighs in at 1.15kg and measures in at 16mm thick/thin and that it comes with "long battery life for extended use" without going into any details.

We managed to dig up some official pricing and at least in Canada the list price excluding tax is CAD$299.99 (S$382) which isn't terrible, but one should take into consideration that Intel is offering its Cedar Trail Atom processors at a much more affordable price than the previous generation with an Atom N2600 having an Intel list price of a mere US$42 which should be compared to US$86 for either of the Atom N550 or N570, a US$46 price difference that would be directly reflected in the price of the actual device.
