Lenovo has released a teaser video for the as-yet unannounced Lenovo Ideapad S110 "mini notebook" with an Intel Cedar Trail processor, USB 3.0, and a 10.1-inch screen.

While netbooks seem to have largely given way to ultrabooks, the new Cedar Trail chips that Intel just began shipping could yet give the category a small second chance at life. Lenovo apparently thinks so, as it's put out a teaser video for the as-yet unannounced Lenovo IdeaPad S110 "mini notebook" — a title perhaps designed to distance the product from the maligned "netbook" category. The N2600 Cedar Trail chip spec comes courtesy of a couple of online retailers, who also peg the RAM at 1GB and a hard drive with 320GB of storage. The video itself teases a machine that's 16mm thick, weighing 1.15kg, with USB 3.0, a 10.1-inch "HD" screen, and optional 720p webcam and 3G connectivity. The S110 joins the Asus Eee PC 1025 and a couple rumored Samsung netbooks on the Cedar Trail netbook rumor map.

We're hoping that the new chipset and concurrent graphical improvements should mean that this category will involve a little less compromise than it has in the past. Pricing at Provantage and Stillwater Networks are both listed at around $330, but we'll have to wait and see if Lenovo actually intends to put the MSRP for the S110 at a slightly more likely $299.
