LG launches X140 netbook… in some parts of the globe
The LG X140 is a 10 inch netbook that packs a little more punch than most other devices in its class — with an emphasis on little. The mini-laptop has a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display and a 1.83GHz Intel Atom N475 processor. It also comes with a 320GB hard drive.
That’s compared with most netbooks, which tend to have 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processors, 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel displays, and 160GB or 250GB hard drives. But the LG X140 still has a less than full sized keyboard, integrated Intel GMA 3150 graphics, and 1GB of RAM. It runs WIndows 7 Starter Edition, and has 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth.
All in all, if you’re looking for a netbook that actually has significantly more power than most, you’re probably better off going with an Acer Aspire One 521 or another mini-laptop with an AMD Nile-based CPU or Intel CULV processor. But if you’re in US, you might not have to worry about that choice anyway, since the LG X140 is expected to launch in Asia and the Middle East, but not int he US or Europe. It will sell for the equivalent of about $500.
