LG unveils R200 ultraportable

LG XNote R200

LG today previewed its XNote R200 portable at a Korean press event. The 12-inch widescreen adopts the same style as the S900 and other large notebooks, and offers much of the same performance in a smaller package. The reference design is based almost entirely around Intel's recent Santa Rosa platform and includes more than just a 2GHz Core 2 Duo running on the faster 800MHz bus, according to LG. The system is certified for Centrino Pro and builds in 802.11n Wi-Fi plus a chipset for remote administration and locking down files if used at an office. 1GB of Turbo Memory cache helps surmount the slow hard disk drives that bottleneck notebook speeds.

The price of the R200 was not available at press time, but the system is known to be ready for home media duties as well as work with a 128MB Mobility Radeon HD 2300 handling basic 3D, a 160GB hard disk, and Bluetooth. LG typically reserves its XNote line for Korea and parts of Europe but has been known to find resellers in North America for some of its systems. [via AVING]
