Lenovo has made a big announcement today, introducing its new NVIDIA Ion 2 equipped all-in-one C200 desktop and IdeaPad S10-3s netbook.


Running quickly over the C200, this slick looking unit sports an 18.5-inch 1366x768 display and is powered by Intel's Atom D510 dual-core CPU together with NVIDIA's GeForce G210 GPU that uses NV Optimus technology to turn itself on when demand calls upon it (light gaming or 1080p HD content etc.).




Given its starting price tag of just $399, there are of course a few trade-offs. There's only a DVD drive integrated rather than a Blu-ray one and as mentioned, the display is not multi-touch capable.




Moving focus to the new member of Lenovo's IdeaPad netbook range, the S10-3s, this is the thinnest in the PineTrail powered series thus far measuring just .6-inches thick and weighing in at 2.4 pounds.




Internally things remain much the same, however, with the use of Intel's Atom N450 or N470 processor, a gig of RAM and choice of 160/250/320GB hard disk.




All in all, doesn't look too shabby for the $379 starting price and that tidy chiclet keyboard sure looks nice, too.


Lenovo has said the C200 is available through and at select retailers as of now and the IdeaPad S10-3s will be available from mid-April onward.
