LG Z330 and Z430 Super Ultrabooks, two new models, will be on display at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week in January 2012.
The Z330 is the smaller and lighter of the two, and has a 13.3-inch screen with a 1366-by-768 pixel resolution; 4 GB of memory; is powered by an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor and comes with either a 120GB Solid State Drive or a 256GB Solid State Drive. The device is 0.58 inches thick and weighs 2.7 lbs., which makes it slightly lighter than the 13.3-inch version of Apple’s MacBook Air (which weighs 3 lbs.).
The Z430 has a larger 14-inch display with a 1366-by-768 pixel resolution; 8GB of memory and is powered by an Intel core i7 processor. The product also has both a traditional hard drive that can store up to 500 GB, and either a 16GB Solid State Drive or a 128GB Solid State Drive, although the Solid State Drives should be optional on this model according to the specification sheet. The Z430 is almost 0.80 inches thick and weighs 3.3 lbs.
The LG Z330 and Z430 Super Ultrabooks are both powered by second generation Intel Core i processors. They will start shipping in during the first quarter of 2012. At this point, the company isn’t providing any details on what the two ultrabooks will cost, but they probably won’t be cheap.
Ultrabooks are expected to be one of the main trends for consumer electronics, due to the success of the MacBook Air, with new products from Hewlett-Packard, Acer and Lenovo, as well.
