LG adds new models to Xnote A540 lineup
Korea's LG Electronics has expanded its Xnote A540 3notebook lineup with the 3D-capable A540-T/D and the 2D but AH-IPS equipped A540-P. The first of the group, the glasses-free, 3D-capable A540-H, was introduced at CES. The T/D uses passive 3D glasses and uses the webcam to track users' eyes, maximizing the effect.
The aluminum-bodied notebook can also convert 2D content to 3D when users press a dedicated button. The notebook is SRS Premium Sound 5.1-certified, but only has four speakers and a subwoofer.
All are powered by a quad-core, second-generation Core i7 from Intel and use NVIDIA's GeForce GT555M for graphics.
While release dates weren't shared, they are expected to arrive before the spring. LG will price the basic IPS, non-3D model at 1.93 million won (about $1,700), the base 3D, glasses-free model at 2.25m won (nearly $2,000), and the 3D model that requires glasses at 1.7m won (some $1,500).
