LG X Note R400 Notebook
LG ended speculation today with the X Note R400. A 14-inch mid-range notebook, its technical details are a perfect match to those from the Canadian leak and offer relatively advanced features for the price. A Mobility Radeon x2300 with 128MB of memory offers fast-enough graphics for Vista Home Premium's interface and light 3D gaming; 1GB of RAM and a 1.73GHz Core 2 Duo provide the same grunt for multitasking and CPU-heavy tasks such as video decoding. A 1.3-megapixel webcam is standard for every R400.
As described, the system should sell in blue or white for $1,717 in its Korean homeland with a 120GB hard disk and a DVD burner. A basic edition with a dual-core 1.6GHz Pentium T2060, Intel graphics, an 80GB hard drive, and a DVD/CD-RW drive will also be available for $1,320. Pricing in Canada will be closer to $1,199 ($1,042 US) for the deluxe system.
