A release from an often forgotten laptop competitor brings us the Lenovo IdeaPad S12 netbook.

It’s not your Sony, Mac, or Acer, but the IdeaPad S12 features a 1.6GHz CPU and a GeForce GPU together to allow for Blu-Ray/1080p video playback.

The netbook ($499 USD) also rocks a 12.1 inch LED screen, 1gb of RAM, 160gb of hard drive space, WiFi, bluetooth capabilities, and dolby sound.

This little guy may not be able to hang with the big boys come time for its release in August, but the Lenovo IdeaPad S12 netbook does pack a punch.
