Lenovo planning to use Ion for larger netbooks?


Who knows what dark, unreliable alleys the Commercial Times prowled to get this information, but the Chinese newspaper says that Lenovo is planning on shipping 11.6-inch and 12.1-inch NVIDIA Ion-based "netbooks" sometime in the future. Given the currently strained relationship between NVIDIA and Intel, it'll be interesting to see if Intel comes through on its promise to sell Atom chips separately or if that was just the empty PR speak. We'll see how this plays out -- right now all we've heard is that Ion will launch on the desktop, so we wouldn't hold your breath.
