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.
