LG announces Xnote Z330 Ultrabook

The 13.3-inch Ultrabook is expected to be one of the thinnest notebooks around, even beating out the MacBook Air

Add LG to the ever-growing list of Ultrabook manufacturers as the South Korean conglomerate has just announced its first Ultrabook offering.

Called the Xnote Z330, the 13.3-inch notebook will reportedly measure just 0.5787-inches (14.7mm) thick with a weight of just 2.7 pounds (1.22kg). By comparison, the 13.3-inch 2011 MacBook Air is about 0.68-inches (17mm) thick and 2.96 pounds (1.34kg), so the new Xnote will have bragging rights as one of the thinnest ultrathin notebooks when it launches in South Korea later this month.

In terms of the Ultrabook’s innards, the LG will pack a 1366x768 resolution screen, Core i5-2467M or Core i7-2637M CPU with integrated Intel HD 3000 GPU, 4GB RAM and SATA III SSD up to 256GB. Connectivity options include HDMI, Intel WiDi, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 3.0 and a microSD card reader.

Unfortunately, the press release does not appear to mention a North American or European launch, so users outside of South Korea may have to wait a bit longer. The notebook is expected to start at the USD equivalent of $1509. We will update with official international release dates once they become available.
