LG X110 netbook revealed?
Korean giant LG is also planning to join the netbook field, currently occupied by computers such as ASUS' Eee PC and Acer's Aspire one, according to reports. The debut system is expected to be called the X110, and manufactured by Taiwan's Micro-Star International, though it should ship beyond Asia to regions including Europe and North America. Rather than aiming for a low cost, LG is said to be interested in high-end design and materials.
Specifications are said to include an 8.9-inch screen, 2GB of RAM, and a 120GB hard drive. It should be based around Intel's Atom processor, and run a version of Windows XP. Like the Eee a Linux version may also be available, but this has not been decided. Pricing is expected to fall between $625 and $790, but this is based on exchange rates with Taiwan.
