Lenovo Announces New Core i7 Desktop and Atom-Powered Nettop

Paul Lilly

Can you remember the last time Lenovo unveiled a high-end tower system aimed at the performance crowd? It's a bit of a trick question, because up until now, that's been new territory for Lenovo. Not anymore, starting with the just-unveiled IdeaCentre K320 .

The K320's base configuration screams of modesty with its Core i3 processor, but fully decked out, you can piece together a beast of a system with an Intel Core i7 860 CPU, ATI Radeon HD 5970 videocard, and a Blu-ray burner, among other options. These and other amenities will jack up the starting price from $600 to $2,000 when it launches on January 31st.

Switching gears, Lenovo also plans to launch the IdeaCentre C315 nettop down the road on March 1st. It will come configured with an Intel Atom 330 processor, up to 640GB of storage space, optional ATI Radeon 4530 graphics, and a DVD burner. Seems a bit pricey at $650 though.
