LG Electronics (LG) today introduced the LG P220, a new sleek and
compact notebook equipped with an IPS (in-plane switching) display, offering 12.5-inch widescreen viewing.
"Notebook design has hit a crossroad where users want bigger screens
but aren?t willing to sacrifice portability or keyboard comfort," '
said J.J. Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of LG Electronics
PC Business Unit. "12-inch notebooks just haven't achieved such an
effective balance between compact body and wide screen. Through its
narrow bezel and a wider, higher quality viewing angles, the LG P220
achieves new levels of notebook satisfaction, by offering wide
screen viewing on a compact device without any sacrifices in
performance and mobility"
The notebook's enhanced Real Slim Bezel on the left, right and top
sides of the screen allows the LG P220 to showcase a 12.5-inch
screen in 11.6-inch compact body.
The LG P220's IPS display ensures a wider viewing angle as well as
no color distortion from any angle within a 178 degree viewing arc.
The LG P220 also blends a minimalist design with a clean and modern
look and it will be available in White Pearl, Pink Pearl, and Blue
The notebook is powered by
a second-generation Intel Core i5 processor, features a built-in
software for sharing files among DLNA-enabled devices, while
optimized power handling allows for the viewing of three full-length
movies consecutively on one charge.
The LG P220 notebook will be available in Korea starting this month
followed by European markets soon after.
