Lenovo S12 NVIDIA Ion netbook 1080p video demo

Lenovo S12 NVIDIA Ion netbook 1080p video demo

SlashGear stopped by the Pepcom Digital Experience in New York this week, and caught up with one of the more interesting netbooks on the horizon: Lenovo's S12.  While it may physically resemble one of the company's previous models, albeit with a larger 12.1-inch display, what makes the S12 really special is the NVIDIA Ion chipset inside.  The demonstration - which you can see after the cut - showed silky-smooth simultaneous HD encoding and playback.

French MacBook transformer video

I've no doubt this video will be all over the place before long (if it isn't already) but we're suckers for transforming tech here at SlashGear.  Apparently created for the French postal service, to publicize their new home printing service for shipping labels, it shows a MacBook option that, while cool, could get expensive after a while.

Sony admit PSP Go price inflation

Sony admit PSP Go price inflation

It's perhaps saying a lot about our opinion of big businesses like Sony when admitting you purposefully milk early-adopters wins you kudos for honesty.  SCEE's Andrew House, current president and former chief marketing officer, has done just that, telling MCV that the PSP Go's high price is partly the result of "a certain premium" associated with a new device.

Sharp Mebius NJ70A gets video unboxing

Sharp Mebius NJ70A gets video unboxing

Sharp's Mebius NJ70A is still too rich for our blood - $1,000 or thereabouts is simply too much to pay for a netbook, no matter how slick its touchscreen trackpad - but that doesn't mean we're not interested in lapping up all the information about the distinctive ultraportable that we can.  UMPC Fever have acquired one of the  Atom N270 netbooks and promptly shot a video unboxing.
