Are you tired of crowds, pushy sales people, and long lines at checkout counters? Are you dreading last minute Christmas shopping? If you are, and you happen to live in one of seven major U.S. cities, Amazon is about to change your life.
Introducing Amazon’s new “Same Day Delivery” option in New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Las Vegas and Seattle. Timing cutoffs vary in each of the cities, but you can order before 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to be eligible for the option.
But wait, there’s more! Some would be willing to pay $20 to $30 for such quick delivery. But you will pay the low, low price of $15.99 (*Applause*). If you belong to Amazon Prime, you will see even deeper discounts, paying just $6.99 for the service.
Lenovo’s IdeaPad S12 is the soul of a netbook trapped in the anatomy of a notebook. It has now become clear that Lenovo plans to release three variants of this 12-inch netbook, which it had announced as the world’s first Ion-based netbook last month – the Ion-based SKU will be available later in the summer. Lenovo has begun accepting pre-orders for a Nano-based variant of this netbook. Of course, an Atom-powered SKU is also available.
The Via Nano powered IdeaPad S12 features a VIA Nano ULV 2250 processor and VIA Chrome9 HC3 graphics. The combination is expected to outperform the Atom-based S12 variant, featuring the Atom N270 processor along with Intel 945GSE chipset. The Nano-powered S12 can be ordered for $449, whereas its Atom-toting counterpart is priced $499.
