Default Another New Ultrabook: LG Xnote Z330

"LG has just announced their entry to the Ultrabook category, the 13.3″ Xnote Z330. While the outside cover has a concentric circle, etched pattern similar to that of the ASUS Zenbooks (although more subtle and originates from the corner instead of from the center of the cover), the overall look of the Xnote Z330 resembles that of a MacBook Pro/Air."

Starting at about $1500 and going to about $2300, LG seems to have aimed high, but missed the mark a bit on price, when $1000 is the holy grail. Specs are, well, like other Ultrabooks: 3-pounds; 4GB RAM; SSD; Intel Core i5 or i7; 1366x768 resolution; etc. LG promises that the X Note will cold boot into Windows 7 in 10 seconds or less. This system looks like the love child of an ASUS Zenbook and a MacBook Air (actually quite attractive). Further details should be forthcoming. With this latest generation of notebooks/ultrabooks, I can carry a MacBook Air and an Ultrabook, and still have my laptop case weigh less than my work laptop of 4-5 years ago. Thank you, manufacturers, from my shoulders and back!
