LG Releases Ultra-Portable Notebook with All-day Battery Life

Published December 8th, 2009 - 02:59 GMT

LG Electronics (LG), a global leader and technology innovator in mobile communications, announced today the launch of its flagship LG WIDEBOOK™ T380. This 13.3-inch slim and light notebook packs Intel’s ultra low voltage (ULV) processor to improve mobility and boost battery life.

The longer battery life doesn’t come at the expense of speed, though, as the Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 ULV 1.3GHz processor, paired with up to 4GB DDR2 memory, doubles the performance of a netbook fitted with an Atom CPU while consuming 60% less power than a normal CPU. A standard 8-cell battery allows consumers to use it for up to 10.5 hours between charges; enough for a long flight or an entire day of working on the road. The LG T380 is a road warrior’s dream, as the slim design measures only 25mm thick and tips the scales at a scant 1.89kg.

“An emerging trend in the notebook market is for consumers to look towards products with long-lasting batteries blended with desktop performance,” said Managing Director of LG Electronics Levant, Mr. Kevin Cha.

“We are intently focusing on enhancing mobility and connectivity while ensuring productivity. In light of this, we believe that the LG T380 is at the forefront of notebook design and engineering, and helps LG cement its position as a leader in the mobile computing industry.”

The LG T380’s 13.3-inch LED-backlit widescreen LCD boasts a (16:9) aspect ratio running at a native resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. It offers a smooth, clear display for high-definition (HD) content including movies, games, and video conferences. The LG T380 ships with Microsoft Windows 7, which also offers faster performance than Windows Vista OS.

The LG T380’s stylish exterior will appeal to even the most fashion-conscious consumer. The vertical lines and groove pattern on the lid offers a luxurious look and feel, while the touchpad features hidden lighting and tactile feedback. The soft-touch keyboard is also comfortable for long sessions in front of a word processor. The LG T380 is available in a range of colors to suit individual tastes, including espresso black and neon orange.

The LG T380 is 3G-ready thanks to an embedded 3G modem chipset to provide convenient and easy access to the internet regardless of location. With 3G features, the user can connect to the internet via GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS or HSDPA networks.

The LG T380 also packs a range of useful features including a 1.3-megapixel webcam with the You-Cam viewer for video chatting and conferencing, and SRS TruSurround HD sound for rich audio. An e-SATA port and a High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) connector are included for when the LG T380 is desk-bound. In addition, LG’s Smart Pack software suite, comprising Smart On, Smart Indicator, Smart Recovery and Smart Care helps boot the computer quickly and helps keep the machine running at peak efficiency. 

The LG T380, one of the LG’s flagship notebooks, is now available in several countries in the Middle East and worldwide. It will be rolled out across Jordan and other countries in Asia, Europe, North America, and Latin America in early 2010.
