Is Bigger Better?

S12_Family_01 For all those of you who have thought that netbooks are too small for school use, Lenovo has a bigger, and hopefully, better idea with its upsized IdeaPad S12 netbook. It has a 12-inch screen with LED backlighting, but the system weighs close to 4-pounds and sells for $450, or about what a budget notebook goes for. Like other netbooks, the S12 is powered by an Intel Atom N270 processor, but is closer to a traditional notebook with a full-size keyboard and a 160GB hard drive. Look for a version in at the end of summer that has Nvidia graphics and an HDMI plug to connect it to a large-screen monitor. It will sell for $500.
