Indulge in Lenovo’s new laptop which contains top of the line powerful features which are missing in other netbooks. The IdeaPad S12 is one of the many collections of Lenovo’s S12 series which is priced at $649. It is a bit pricey but looking at its marvelous performance capabilities, you might have a second thought and consider this one. In order to lighten up your mind some more, let us take a look at the specifications and features the IdeaPad S12 can offer to the consumers.
First, the lustrous black covering of the chassis makes it looking elegant and chic. The 12.1 inch screen and the 1.4 inch chassis is made of brawny plastic with a beautiful design. It weighs 3.4 pounds which is quite heavy but not really a big deal.
Second, the 12.1 display screen provides plenty of room for a wide viewing angle. Its screen resolution of 1,280X800 and the integrated Nvidia Ion graphics creates beautiful and crisp colors and images. The screen does not attract light and so there are no distracting reflections seen. A 1.3 megapixel Webcam is embedded at the core of the top of the screen and takes unexpectedly nice images.
Third, the keyboard has big keys making it easy to type. The keys are firm and typing is admittedly quiet. The touchpad is too small with slender mouse knobs which make it hard and confusing during the operation.
Fourth, the 6-cell battery is positioned extending to the back of the chassis. This adds up to the weight of the unit but makes it less bulky and uniquely designed. The battery life can only extend for up to 3 hours, so if you want to play simple games or watch a movie, you need to have an electrical outlet at bay.
Fifth, the sole processor of Intel Atom with 3GB RAM and a wide 320GB of hard drive, powers up theIdeaPad S12. The performance is quite sluggish but is typical of netbooks although bearable.
Sixth: To complement with the standards of netbooks, Lenovo incorporated multiple ports and connectors to the IdeaPad S12. You will find a power jack, 3 USB ports, and memory card slots, HDMI – /VGA – out ports, headphone/microphone jacks, an Ethernet port and Kensington – lock slit. For your wireless connections, a Bluetooth and 802.11b/g are also included.
And lastly, there are plenteous applications that are incorporated in the unit. It is equipped with the 32 bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium. A 1 month trial of McAfee 2009 antivirus software, 2 months tryout for Microsoft Office plus a 365 days limited hardware warranty with 24/7 technical support are prepackaged in the system.
