LG P220 specs and release date go official
LG’s P220 first appeared way back at Computex in early June, and the laptop has just now gone official. In a press release by the company, LG officially announced the launch date and specs for the notebook but unfortunately decided to hang onto exact pricing info.
The P220's claim to fame is probably its 12.5” widescreen display, that fits into the traditional 11.6” form factor thanks to LG’s “Real Slim Bezel” technology. In addition, the 1366x768 pixel screen features IPS (in-plane-switching) whcih offers a 178˚ viewing arc to ensure optimum color quality for all viewers.
Upon its introduction the P220 was seen packing a Core i7 CPU, but that appears to have changed as LG announced that the notebook will be powered by a Core i3/i5 processor along with 2 or 4GB of DDR3 RAM and up to 320GB of storage space. The ultraportable will also come with Integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics, a weight of only 2.86 pounds (1.3kg), and a 4-cell battery that allows for consecutive viewing of three full-length movies per charge.
While the P220’s bezel-less IPS display is definitely an attention grabber, we would have enjoyed being able to put on an official price on the machine. And although earlier word indicated that the P220 would be priced in the Ultrabook range, we’re going to have to wait till it launches in Korea later this month to find out the actual truth.
