While Lenovo are having difficulties releasing the IdeaPad S10 in the US, they’ve found time to announce the release of the IdeaPad S9.
The S9 has a 9 inch screen rather than the 10 inch of the S10. It has the same chassis as the S10 so it comes with a bezel around the edge of the screen. The S9 will retail at a lower starting price of about $340.
The cheapest S9 will likely come with Linux, 80GB hard drive and 512MB of RAM. The S9 will ship in Taiwan, with no plans of release in the US. No date has been set for when they’ll be released, but hopefully they won’t have the same problems as the US S10.
