Dell might be leaving netbooks behind, but Lenovo's not of the same mind. Joining the flood of its new laptops is the Lenovo S200 and S206, which are some of the first netbooks to be powered by Intel's Cedar Trail Atom processors. Sure, Lenovo also has the new Cedar Trail-powered IdeaPad S110, but these have 11.6-inch with 1366 x 768 resolution displays. Other than that these have fairly run of the mill specs, including up to 2GB of DDR3 SDRAM and up to 500GB (7,200 rpm) hard drives. The S200 and S206 models also both have two 1.5-watt integrated stereo speakers, an 0.3 megapixel webcam, plus one each USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and optional Bluetooth. They also come with a 2-cell battery rated at about 4 hours of usage. The S200 can additionally be outfitted with an up to 32GB SSD, and comes with a dual core, Intel Atom N2800 processor while the S206 has a dual core AMD C60 CPU. Both the IdeaPad S200 and and S206 will be available in an array of colors in June with a starting price of $349.
