New Lenovo all-in-one sports next-gen Ion graphics

Nvidia’s next-generation Ion graphics processor isn’t just finding a home in netbooks. As Engadget reports, Lenovo has introduced a new all-in-one nettop that couples Intel Atom processors with the latest Ion chip—as an option, at least.

The Lenovo C200 has an 18.5" 16:9 display and, judging from the photos in Engadget’s story, a black, glossy, rounded exterior. In its top configuration, the system features a dual-core Atom D510 processor, an Nvidia Ion GPU with 256MB of graphics memory, a built-in DVD burner, and a "single-touch touchscreen panel."

Lenovo’s press release adds that the C200 will be available this month from the company’s own website, as well as through "select retailers." Prices will start at $399, although considering Lenovo labels the Ion GPU as "optional," you’ll probably have to pay extra for anything besides integrated graphics. (Engadget actually suggests the Ion-powered model will cost $499.)

Last week, we also saw the new Ion GPU in a pair of nettops from Asus: the EeeTop PC 2010PN and 2010PNT. Both of those nettops have larger, 20" displays, and the 2010PNT adds multi-touch functionality. Asus didn’t announce pricing when it introduced the two systems, though.

    Not a bad PC, replace the Atom with a low end dual-core Athlon II, and maybe have an on-board HD5450 and it’d be perfect… :-p

    ION2 is actually a discrete gpu… it’s no longer integrated into the chipset…

    I’m hoping some motherboards come out with Next Gen ION soon. I wouldn’t mind replacing my current 945 based board with one. These have the best of both worlds, Intel Chipset with nVidia graphics.

    That thing actually looks pretty dang sexy. I’d like to run Moblin on it (if that’s allowed on the ION)
