Lenovo has been a busy bee here at CES 2012, as the company has already announced the ThinkPad T430u, IdeaPad Yoga, IdeaTab S2, IdeaTab K2 and the K800 smartphone. However, the company doesn't appear to be slowing down and this time around they've announced a number of new IdeaPad notebooks.
We previously reported about Lenovo's new Ideapad S200 and S206 mini-notebooks, and the company is following them up with new additions to their Y-multimedia series. The Y480 and Y580 can now be equipped with Intel Core i7 processors, up to 8GB of RAM and brushed metal lids and palm rests. In addition, the Y580 features a 15.6" full-HD display along with a 2GB GTX 660M GPU while the Y480 makes do with a 1366x768 resolution on its 14" display. The notebooks will be sold at a starting price of $899.
Next in line, Lenovo updated their mid-range notebooks by announcing the refreshed IdeaPad Z380, Z480 and Z580. In addition to featuring up to Core i7 CPUs, the Z notebooks come with the option for up to 8GB of RAM, up to 1TB of space, Blu-Ray and Wi-Di.

Finally, Lenovo also updated their entry-level G-series and the G480, G580 and G780 will now come with up to 8GB of RAM and 1TB of space. Furthermore, Lenovo did say that some variants will be available with Blu-Ray and NVIDIA GeForce 630M GT options. The entry level will start at $399.
