LG unveils Xnote Z330 ultrabook in South Korea

By on December 5, 2011, 5:30 PM

LG has officially joined the Ultrabook fray with the unveiling of its Xnote Z330 in South Korea. Like most laptops in this category, the Z330 features a 13.3-inch display wit a standard 1366×768 resolution. However, using its own Shuriken display technology, LG's Ultrabook differentiates itself from the crowd with a narrow 8mm bezel that allows it to fit into a chassis that would normally house a 12.1-inch system.

The Xnote Z330 measures 0.6 inches (14.7mm) thick and weighs about 2.7 pounds (1.21kg). In terms of specs, customers can go for either an Intel Core i5-2467M or Core i7-2637M processor, paired with 4GB of RAM and a choice of 120GB SATA 6Gbps SSD or a 256GB SATA 3Gbps SSD. Graphics are handled by the integrated GPU on Intel's Sandy Bridge processors, while connectivity features include 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 3.0, and Intel's WiDi wireless display technology.

LG says the Z330 will run for more than six hours on a single charge. There's no word on when or if we'll see LG's Ultrabook hit the U.S. market, but the Xnote Z330 is launching in the company's home country this month with prices starting at about $1500.The top model is set to sell for ₩2.6 million, or around $2,300.

In my split second glance at this picture in my RSS reader, I thought that I was looking at a Mac Book Air. I wonder where they got the design idea

The thin bezel is great, but that resolution and price put me off...

Guest said:

Why?? Because it's thin and gray?? lol. A mac would never have that kind of hardware for that price. The low end model Would be over $2300 at least....just for the little apple logo and limited software options.

I can't see the point of putting a battery intensive cpu in an ultra portable

Looks good, I hope it becomes available in Canada. LG notebooks are pretty sweet machines.
