LG kicks out ultra-slim Blade P430 and P530 notebooks

LG Blade P430 and P530 pack Shuriken displays

LG on Tuesday morning trotted out a pair of new mid-size notebooks that potentially defy categories. The Blade P430 and P530 both use the same Shuriken display technology behind the Xnote P210 and have extra-thin screens, at under 0.19mm thick, as well as very narrow bezels. The P430's 14-inch display still fits into the frame of a 13.3-inch notebook where the 15.6-inch P530 steers away from the near desktop replacement size of most systems with its screen.

Either is also comparatively light, at 4.28 pounds for the P430 and just 4.85 pounds for the P530, much lighter than most of its peers. Both use their display advances and an aluminum casing to achieve the effect.

The two systems are relatively high performance. LG outfitted the P430 and P530 with Core i5 and Core i7 chips respectively, and both have dedicated GeForce GT 520M video for a modest level of gaming. Both have 1.3-megapixel webcams and DLNA media sharing software.

International shipments are due to start at the end of May for the P430 and late June for the P530. LG is targeting Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and South America, but it also often brings its systems to Canada.
