LG Electronics has re-entered the Indian notebook market after a hiatus of over two years and it is back with a bang. The Korean company has launched 13 new notebook computers priced in the range of Rs 26,000 to Rs 66,780.
The new notebooks are characterized by their slim, sleek, and stylish design. Of these, the A530 is a 3D notebook, offering not just 3D content viewing capability, but also 3D video chat and recording capability using a dual webcam. It sports a 15.6" Full HD 3D LCD screen with thin bezel, and a metallic chassis. Powered by an Intel Core i5 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce GT540M, the LG A520 comes with all the features of the A530 except the dual webcam.
The LG P420 has been given the tagline "less is more" because of its streamlined interior, lightweight, and compact design, packing in powerful computational capability with an Intel Core i5 processor and 8 GB DDR3 memory. The company has claimed to put a 14" screen in a body capable of fitting in a 13.3", though it remains to be seen how this seemingly impossible task has been achieved. The P430 and P530 are also specified to be ultra slim notebooks with the former having a 14", while the latter with a 15.6" LED backlit screen. The screen of the P430 is just 4.5 mm thick, while that of the P530 is 4.7 mm, thus having some of the thinnest screens in their category. Equipped with LG Smart Share content sharing using DLNA connectivity, the P430 weighs just 1.9 kg, while the P530 weighs 2.2.
With the S430 and S530, LG also introduced a couple of trendy notebooks in three colours: Purple, Blue, and Grey. Sporting ATI graphics, the company claims that these support USB charging at up to 3 times the usual rate. There is also the E530, which comes with Bluetooth 3.0, a claimed better battery life, and a Hair Line design.
Being lighter and slimmer, the above LG notebooks come equipped with powerful configurations including 2nd generation Intel processors and a minimum 500 GB hard drive. All the notebooks are available at leading retail outlets.
