Lenovo is bringing its new Ideapad S10-3 Intel Atom netbook to the Australian market. The device is going to be sold at a price between AUD559 and AUD669 depending on the features you opt for and is expected to launch as early as the 7th of September this year.
The device is pretty reasonably priced. For AUD559 ($499 approx in USD), you get hold of a 10.1-inches display with a resolution package of 1024×600 pixels, a 1.5GHz dual core Intel Atom N550 processor along with a 1GB DDR3 memory and a 160GB hard drive. Additionally, you will also get to see a 1.3-megapixel webcam, Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, flash card reader and support for 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. The device is expected to run on Windows 7 Starter edition.
The model launching in Australia is pretty similar to Lenovo’s IdeaPad that was launched elsewhere though the 1.5GHz processor is a new introduction. That could bring a good competitive edge for Lenovo against the rival product launches.
