Lenovo takes their 3000 N100 to Core 2 Duo


While we wait for Apple to get their MacBook act together, a few more Core 2 Duo stragglers are wandering in, and this time it's Lenovo's N100 from their 3000 series getting the Merom boost. Beyond the processor goodies, which seem to encompass most of the Intel's offerings, the N100 boasts of an 802.11n MIMO WiFi option, your choice of a 14.1 or 15.4-inch widescreen LCD, and an option with the 15-inchers for an NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300 card running 64 or 128MB of memory. The 15-inch models also seem to have an option for a built-in webcam, but we're low on deets. Since Lenovo isn't telling us any different, we're guessing the screen res options match up with the previous offerings, along with the rest of the specs. We should be seeing these for sale any day now -- they're listed at the Lenovo site now, but one of the links is broken and some of the specs don't match -- and prices should start around $800.
