While it was tough to know just who Dell’s Mini 12 appealed to, apparently the idea of a 12-inch netbook wasn’t so crazy. Because rumour has it that Lenovo will be releasing one, too.
According to DigiTimes, Lenovo will release an Atom N280-powered IdeaPad S20 in hopes to avoid competition from the 10-inch netbook market. The system is rumoured to run around $US586 when it’s released at an undisclosed date. Seeing as Lenovo’s other offerings in the 12-inch size range have traditionally cost triple that price, it’s an interesting move if nothing else. [DigiTimes via The Inquirer]
