Lenovo's New Netbook to Hit the Markets Starting December

Since the giant PC maker announced its new range of netbooks, the world has been eagerly awaiting their release, and now Lenovo has shared that it will put some of the waits at ease, as the company announced that a select range of its latest netbook model, the IdeaPad S12, will arrive in the markets countrywide in December, just in time for Christmas.

The new netbook will come pre-loaded with the latest Windows 7 operating system, and Lenovo has confirmed that its engineers and developers have "worked tirelessly with Microsoft for several years" to create the best experience to run Windows 7".

The IdeaPad S12 is the company's first 12-inch display netbook, and an upgraded version of its 10-inch netbook. The machine has been designed to bring together usability and performance improvements, including a full-size keyboard, increased processor efficiency and graphics options.

"We've heard from consumers loud and clear about the need for affordable and extremely portable computing devices. We've responded by introducing our third generation netbook with a completely new form factor", said Chris Kelly, Product and Marketing Director for Lenovo A/NZ.

Offering up-to 6 hours of battery life, the IdeaPad S12 features an Intel Atom chipset and Intel integrated graphics and HDMI connection among other interesting features, and will come at a starting price of $799.
