nvidia-ionA Chinese newspaper is claiming that Lenovo has signed a deal with NVidia to use their Ion platform on two netbooks over 10 inches.  While that size would stretch the netbook category, Lenovo is reported to be preparing a 11.6-inch and a 12.1-inch notebook that uses the Intel Atom processor and NVidia Ion graphics.  Neither Lenovo nor NVidia will confirm nor deny this rumor.

  1. In addition, Lenovo is reportedly evaluating the possibility of launching a 13-inch Ion model, and will also launch a 12-inch netbook based on VIA Technologies’ platform, added the paper.

  2. not surprising, as the rumors are the GN40 will also only be found in over 10″ netbooks. why? because the Atom/GN40 will be 16.5w compared to the typical 8w Atom/945. so 12″ – 13″ have the capability to offer much more robust batteries (& better heat dissipation).

    so i’m guessing the Ion will also have relatively high power consumption.
