LG Xnote P220 With IPS Screen: Another Ultrabook?
Announced at Computex 2011, LG Xnote P220 was officially launched on August 11, a descendant of the LG Xnote P210 presented at CeBit 2011. The new P220 is different from its predecessor, primarily through finishes and color, but also with its unibody aluminum casing and IPS display of 12.5 inch. With this model, we can say that LG enters the ultrabook segment. LG P220 comes with Intel Core i3 or i5, has a thickness of 20.9mm, and weighs only 1.3 kg.
Here follows something that sounds quite strange, Xnote P220 is the size of a standard laptop with 11.6-inch screen, but the screen has a diagonal of 12.5 inches (1366 x 768 pixels). This is possible by the Real Slim frame with three sides, being the thinnest frame seen in a portable laptop. Plus the display is the IPS type with viewing angles up to 178 degrees. Those working on photo and video editing have a better understanding of the advantages of this type of screen.
LG Xnote P220 comes with an Intel Core i3 or i5 (Intel Sandy Bridge), 4GB DDR3 RAM, a hard drive with a capacity of 250GB or 320B, integrated graphics card Intel HD 3000, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, LAN, card reader, 1.3 megapixel webcam and HDMI port. The operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium and comes pre-installed.
The hardware components are crammed into a unibody aluminum case with dimensions of 297.6 x 193.4 x 20.9 mm. The netbook is available in three colors – white, pink and blue.
LG Xnote P220 will be commercially available in Korea starting this month and will then enter the markets of Europe and USA. However, we do not have any price information yet.
