LG will officially be joining the Ultrabook club this year with not one, but two offerings in the ultrathin category ready for display at CES.
The two notebooks, the Xnote Z330 and the Z430, will sport the “Super Ultrabook” moniker when they release sometime Q1 2012. The 13.3-inch Z330 will have Core i7, i5 and i3 options and with a claimed boot time of under 10 seconds with its SATA III SSD. The notebook is expected to be only 14.7mm (0.579 inches) thin throughout and weigh no more than 1.21 kg (2.66 pounds).
Meanwhile, the larger 14-inch Z430 will have both SSD and HDD options, 12 second Super Speed Boost booting time and Core i7 and i5 CPU options. This particular model will be a bit larger than its smaller sibling at 19.9mm (0.784 inches) thick and 1.50kg (3.31 pounds). Both notebooks will have a metallic cover with a gyro-brush finish.
Additional notebooks, such as the 15.6-inch 3D-capable P535 and 15.6-inch glasses-free 3D A540, will all make an appearance next week at Las Vegas. Indeed, with both Ultrabooks and 3D, LG appears ready to go all out this year in the notebook segment. Check the source PDF below for official detailed specs of the upcoming products. Who knows what surprises LG may still have up its sleeve!
