We may see Lenovo netbooks packing NVIDIA and VIA chips pretty soon here. Digitimes is reporting that “Lenovo plans to launch 11.6-inch and 12.1-inch netbooks combining Intel’s Atom processor and Nvidia’s Ion platform in the second quarter of this year.”

Lenovo’s apparently considering a 13-inch Ion model as well and already has plans to release a 12-inch VIA-based netbook (presumably the Nano). This is all good news for those of us who want to play games and watch HD videos without a hitch, as NVIDIA’s Ion chip is much, much more powerful than Intel’s standard 945G graphics.
