Lenovo Mini IdeaPad Leak

Lenovo may be the next large PC maker to enter the mini notebook field, according to reports from those in the notebook business. The company plans to expand its IdeaPad yet again to include the G series and will target the line both at budget notebooks as well as the mini notebook field led by the ASUS Eee PC, Acer Aspire One, and other very small systems. Specifics of this system are vague, though most of these systems now use an Intel Atom processor and come with flash-based storage as well as an option for Linux.

A more conventional model, the 14-inch IdeaPad G430, is already said to exist and will reportedly use Intel's Centrino 2 platform with components targeted at low-cost systems.

A release date doesn't accompany the launch, though Lenovo is reportedly tapping PC builders in Taiwan for manufacturing the new G series systems during the second half of the year and will thus pit the mini IdeaPad against the Dell E due in a similar timeframe.
