Lenovo discounts IdeaPads

Desktop and portable PC maker Lenovo on Tuesday reduced prices for its IdeaPad S-series range of netbooks by between $50 and $80, depending on model. The basic black or white IdeaPad S10s now cost $349 and sport 10.2-inch LED-backlit LCD screens along with Intel's 1.6GHz Atom CPU. The custom-colored S10s have dropped from $439 to $359.

Both share other specs as well, including 80GB hard-disk drives pre-loaded with Windows XP home, a Wi-Fi module and 512MB of RAM. The recently-introduced 160GB high-capacity versions with twice the virtual memory have dropped to $399 for black or white and $409 for the user-defined color versions. All are powered by 3-cell batteries.

Lenovo is following in the footsteps of other netbook makers, as just yesterday, HP dropped pricing on its Mini 1000 to $360 from $400, as well as doubling RAM to 1GB. Dell likewise temporarily dropped prices for one of its netbooks, the Inspiron Mini 9, which cost as little as $300 during Black Friday. [via Engadget]
