Lenovo Makes the IdeaPad P1 Windows 7 Slate Official
The IdeaPad P1 is built around a 10.1-inch screen with a native resolution of 1280x800 pixels that features multi-touch support as well as finger and pen input capabilities.
At its heart stands an unnamed Intel processor that Lenovo says it works at 1.5GHz. This information seems to confirm that the chip in question is actually Intel's Atom Z670 that is based on the Oak Trail architecture.
This was specially designed for being used in tablet devices and outside of its single processing core that is clocked at 1.5GHz and the 512KB of Level 2 cache memory, it also sports an integrated Intel GMA 600 graphics unit.
Based on the PowerVR SGX 535 GPU, the GMA 600 includes hardware acceleration for MPEG-2, VC-1, and AVC HD videos as well as DirectX 10.1 support.
The processor is paired with a maximum of 2GB of DDR2-800 memory, while storage is provided by a 32GB or 64GB solid state drive.
The rest of the configuration includes 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth and optional 3G connectivity, a microSD card slot, a 0.3 megapixel webcam, dual 1.5W speakers and a USB 2.0 port.
All these are powered by a 2-cell battery pack that Lenovo states it can go up to six hours without requiring a recharge.
The IdeaPad P1Windows 7 slate will be available in two colorways, silver-gray or "Clementine Orange," but Lenovo hasn't provided us with any details regarding pricing at this point. A firm release date also wasn't established, but we expect the slate to arrive in the last quarter of 2011. (via Liliputing)
