LG joins the small group of companies that has an Ultrabook in their lineup. LG X-Note Z330 sports really thin bezels thanks to the LG Shuriken technology, which has enables them to fit a 13.3″ screen in a 12″ format.
The new LG X-Note Z330 looks like a blend of ASUS UX series and Apple MacBook Air, but that is not necessareily a bad thing. The computer mseasures 315 x 215 mm (B x D), is only 14.7 mm thick. Z330 weighs only 1.21 kg, which is in line with other Ultrabooks.
Z330 has a 13.3″ screen with 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, and an ultrathin bezel thanks to the Shuriken technology. Making a bezel thin is anything but easy, since a thicker bezel means a sturdier construction. It doesn’t say what kind of display it uses, but we would guess a combination of TN and LED.
The choice of processor and SSD varies depending on model. The more expensive version (Z330-GE55K) sports a Core i7-2637M at 1.7/2.8 GHz and 256 GB SSD, while the cheaper version (Z330-GE30K) sports a Core i5-2467M at 1.6/2.3 GHz and a 120 GB SSD. Both SSDs use the SATA 6.0 GB/s standard, and as usual it is Intel’s integrated HD 3000 that supplies the graphics.
Other than that Z330 sports 4 GB RAM, wireless 802.11b/g/n from Intel, and Bluetooth 3.0 + HS. The computer gets one USB 2.0 port, one USB 3.0 port, 3.5 mm audio input (in/out combo), micro SD card reader and HDMI port. LG X-Note Z330 will head into stores in South Korea soon, but we don’t know when it will be released on other market. The price will be relatively high 1,500 to 1,900 dollar depending on the model, which makes it the most expensive Ultrabooken so far.
