LG R300 Penryn Notebook

LG has quietly rolled out a new upgrade to its R-series notebook line through the R300. Effectively a replacement for the E300, the 13.3-inch system is said to strike a balance between performance and relative portability. The notebook is one of LG's first to be based around Intel's 45 nanometer Penryn technology and packs a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo that runs cooler than previous models. The system is also unusually quick for its class with 3GB of memory as standard and an unnamed, dedicated NVIDIA GeForce mobile video chipset providing faster 3D graphics.

The R300 also promises 802.11n Wi-Fi access, a 1.3-megapixel webcam, and Bluetooth as standard options in the small system. LG initially sells the system in Germany for the equivalent of $2,373 after taxes but is expected to ultimately land the system in North America with a lower price that may approach $1,599.
