LG S210 Notebook
LG used its home country's KES 2008 show to introduce a set of new XNOTE notebooks, including the S210. The system is small and light at 12 inches and 2.2 pounds respectively but packs faster components than usually reserved for its kind, including a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo and a full 4GB of memory. Unspecified NVIDIA graphics are also built into the system, which carries HDMI out to play video to HDTVs.
Like most ultraportables, the S210 drops use of an optical drive but carries an ExpressCard slot; it also uses one an increasingly common eSATA/USB combo port along with two other regular USB ports to give users the choice of either regular expansion or a jack for fast external storage.
Pricing and a launch date aren't known, though LG typically exports its systems to Canada and Europe in addition to native Korean launches. [via AVING]
