Lenovo will produce a low-cost, limited scope notebook computer that will sell for US$399, the Wall Street Journal reported. The Chinese company’s IdeaPad S10 is intended to be a second or introductory computer. It will feature web browsing and email capabilities and will also be able to run basic applications. The keyboard will be 85% of the size of a standard notebook computer keyboard. Lenovo’s decision to launch the IdeaPad comes after rival PC makers Hewlett-Packard, Dell and Acer all began selling notebook computers for as little as US$299. It is thought these machines might be popular among first-time computer users in emerging markets. The IdeaPad is set to come in two configurations, one with a 512-megabyte memory and an 80-gigabyte hard drive and the other with a 1-gigabyte memory and a 160-gigabyte hard drive.
