LG X120 netbook info
Korea's LG on Monday released some more information on its 10-inch X120 series of netbooks, first introduced in February. Due to include the X120-L76LK and X120-L76PK models, the pair will sport the Smart ON OS that sports a 7-second boot time for quick access to e-mail, a music player, the Internet and other often-accessed applications. The 10.1-inch screens sport 1024x600 resolution and are LED-backlit. The vanilla-colored netbooks will also weigh in at under 2.8lbs, though the differences between them have not been specified.
Users will be able to connect to a desktop PC via one of the USB ports and accessing its optical drive thanks to dedicated software. A version of the netbook is to include built-in 3G HSPA data network access, with both sharing a 160GB hard drive and a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, with other specs still unverified but likely in-line with other netbooks.
LG announced the basic netbook will start at the equivalent of about $610 in its home market of Korea when it launches in March, with a European release expected sometime in April.
