Just when you thought that the netbook market couldn’t possibly get more crowded, yet another viable option has hit the North American marketplace. If you’re looking for something other than the ubiquitous Asus Eee PC, you may want to check out the recently released Lenovo IdeaPad S9.

As its name implies, this netbook from Lenovo happens to feature a nine-inch (well, 8.9-inch if you want to be more precise) display, unlike its bigger IdeaPad S10 compatriot. A lot of the features found on the Lenovo IdeaPad S9 run par for the course, including an Intel Atom N270 processor, GMA 950 integrated graphics, 512MB of DDR2 RAM, 4GB SSD, and Linpus Linux Lite as its operating system. The S10, by contrast, runs on Windows XP and features an 80GB HDD.

In addition to the LED backlit display, you’ll also find a VGA webcam, stereo speakers, WiFi, Bluetooth, ExpressCard slot, and a 4-in-1 card reader. Find the Lenovo IdeaPad S9 at many online retailers, including Geeks.com where it happens to be on sale for $5 off, bringing the price down to $344.99.
