CES: LG Z330 joins Ultrabook rush

In yet more Ultrabook news, hardware manufacturer LG has used the global platform provided by this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to shine a light on its new Z330 ‘Super Ultrabook’ system. And it’s certainly a looker.

With a screen size of 13.3-inches, a resolution of 1366x768, and a shoulder weight of 1.21kg, the LG Z330’s svelte 1.49 cm profile, gently tapering metallic chassis, and overall aesthetic design clearly owe a collective debt to Apple’s iconic MacBook.

In terms of justifying the aforementioned ‘Super Ultrabook’ label, LG’s latest boasts second-generation Intel Core technology (Sandy Bridge) with a choice of i3, i5, and i7 processors, along with a healthy 4GBs of RAM and up to 256GBs of SSD storage.

Adding extra sheen to the system, LG has also included its proprietary Speed Boot platform, which it claims will see the Z330 booting up in as little as 10 seconds. 

Other aspects include port support for USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, HDMI-out, and a headphone jack. Sadly, initial shots of the Z330 suggest it doesn’t have a slot for Ethernet or microSD—which we find somewhat unusual.

No word yet on pricing but we’re expecting to see the LG Z330 hitting retail before the close of Q1.
