“Gorilla Glass” Protects LG’s Premium Netbook
- 1 Comment
In recent weeks, LG announced the release of the X300 netbook – an ultra-thin, stylish, exceptional quality system. Weighing in at a slight 2 pounds with a thickness of .69 inches, the X300 becomes an extremely portable technological marvel. The specs are as follows:
• 11.6-inch LCD screen
• Windows 7 Home Premium OS
• 2.0 GHz Intel Menlow platform
• Up to 2GB memory
• 128GB SSD
• Embedded 3G modem chipset (Supports GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS and HSDPA networks)
• 1.3-megapixel webcam
• SRS TruSurround HD sound
Although these premium specs make the X300 a very powerful and impressive netbook, its true uniqueness lies within the Gorilla Glass screen. The advanced substance covers the LCD screen and is nearly unbreakable and unscratchable. As a result, the X300 surely offers enough physical security for the clumsiest of netbook users.
Now for the downside: the X300 has not yet been released in North America, but judging from the approximate $1400 pricetag it sported in South Korea, we can expect a hefty price here as well. No specific release date has been announced yet, but since distribution of the product has already started, we can anticipate sometime within the next month.
