LG unveils Z330 and Z430 ultrabooks ahead of CES


As we get closer and closer to the anointed date of January 9th (the start of CES), more and more companies are stretching their muscles and unveiling products that’ll hit store shelves later this year. LG is one of those companies, and while it doesn’t have a clear PC presence in our fair land, some of its wares still manage to find their way into our shores. Such will also be the case for their two new ultrabooks, the Z330 and the Z430, the two newest members of the new slim and light notebook category that we call ultrabooks. Both devices will be equipped with Intel’s second generation Core i7 processor, and will both pack a SSD for quick loading times. The Z430 will additionally carry a secondary 500GB HDD for more storage and will pack a 14-inch screen as opposed to the Z330’s 13-inch display. Both devices will have razor thin profiles, with LG quoting 14.7mm thickness for the Z330 and 19.9mm thickness for the Z430.

Another thing that piqued our interest is LG’s claim that the Z430 uses a thin bezel that allows a 14-inch display to be used in a smaller, 13-inch chassis. Sound familiar? Of course it does – it’s the same claim that Samsung made with its recently released, Series 7 Chronos notebook. LG says that the new ultrabooks will be available in the first quarter of 2012.
