LG’s Ultra-Thin X300 Netbook Officially Announced for Launch

March 8, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

The X300 ultra-thin laptop from LG was first shown at the 2010 CES, and now it’s finally going to start selling on the Asian, South American and Middle Eastern markets. It’s extremely lightweight, and packs some rather respectable specifications for its size.

The laptop comes with a 2.0GHz Intel Menlow (Atom Z550) CPU powering it, 2 GB of RAM, as well as a 128 GB SSD drive. It runs Windows 7 Home Premium, and also comes with integrated 3G.

The laptop is marketed as a competitor to the Vaio X as well as the MacBook Air – although we can’t see how they’ll easily beat the Core2Duo processor. It’ll come with a 11.6″ LCD screen, and an extra two-cell battery which can hold up to seven hours – plus, it features a fan-free design, making it very quiet and convenient.

It’s also lightweight, weighing at only 970 grams, and being 17.5mm thick. On top of all that, it has an integrated 1.3-megapixel webcam, and surround sound support. It’s expected to sell at a price of around $1400, which is relatively good for its specs.
