RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — Lenovo earlier this month introduced an updated version of its S10 netbook and the new C200 all-in-one desktop computer.

The S10-3s will ship later this month with a suggested retail of $379. It is 16mm thick and is powered by an Intel Atom N450 or N470 processor. The netbook can connect to the Web via 802.11b/ g/n, 3G and wireless wide-area network (WWAN). It also has Bluetooth.

Available in black, white and a floral pattern, the S10-3s has a 10.1-inch display, 320GB hard drive and an almost full-size keyboard. Other new features include Dolby headphone audio and Lenovo’s Active Protection System, formerly only available on the company’s ThinkPad and IdeaPad notebooks.

Lenovo also included the new software apps DirecShare and Maplink. DirecShare allows the S10-3s to wirelessly sync with any other computer without having to connect to the Web. MapLife is a Wi-Fi-based mapping tool that detects the user’s location over the Internet and can display nearby points of interest.

The C200 all-in-one, shipping in mid- April with a $399 suggested retail is centered around an 18.5-inch display and is available with a variety of features, including an Intel Atom dualcore processor D510 and Nvidia Ion 256MB graphics. Other specifi cations include up to 4GB of DDR2 memory, a 500GB hard drive and DVD burner; it also comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse.

The C200 has integrated stereo speakers, Lenovo’s High-Sense Web cam, and the company’s Rescue System for backup and data recovery.
