Apart from the W700ds announcement, Lenovo revealed a few more products from its IdeaPad range. Slimness is the main USP of these devices which includes an IdeaCentre A600 All-in-One desktop PC and three IdeaPad notebooks – Y650, Y550 and Y450.
IdeaCentre A600 is the first ever AIO to come out of Lenovo’s stable. The svelte A600 has a 21.5-inch frameless screen and is meant for all the multimedia pleasure. It supports full HD resolution, aspect ratio of 16:9, Dolby certified and optional Blu-ray player. Gaming is handled by ATI’s Radeon GPU with a unique 4-in-1 remote controller developed by Lenovo. The controller is optional and allows users to play games ‘just like Wii’ with the integrated motion drive technology. The controller also doubles up as a VoIP handset.
If specification is the biggest concern, then the desktop will go with options of Core 2 Duo processors, up to 4GB RAM and 1TB HDD support, Wi-Fi, 6-in-1 card reader, VeriFace facial recognition and side-mounted USB and FireWire ports.
It will be available from April with price starting from $999.
Moving onto laptops, Y650 is one of the slimmest and lightest 16-inch laptop available in the market. The Y550 (15.6-inch) and Y450 (14-inch) follows the footsteps of Y650 and shares the modern soft black design featuring an interlocked hexagon pattern.
Full specification hasn’t been revealed but it will be powered by an Intel processor, up to 500GB HDD and RAM maxed up to 4GB. The pricing of these models will start from $1,199 for Y650; $829 for Y550 and Y450 laptops. These notebooks will retail from March.
Lastly, Lenovo’s lone netbook, IdeaPad S10 has also received some minor updates in the form of easy access to Lenovo Social – a social networking website, Instant-On and security features like Veriface and OneKey Rescue system. S10 will sell for $349.
